Probability questions on NBA.
ONLY DO PROBLEM 1 and 2 from the four questions in the document.

Problem 1 ? Consider the NBA Data Set Given:
A. What proportion of these players are less than 74 inches tall?
B. Suppose a random sample of 25 of these players is taken and x is the number of players in the sample who are less than 74 inches tall. Find P(x=0), P(x=1), P(x=2), P(x=3), P(x=4), P(x=5).
C. Note that x in part b has a binomial distribution with lambda=np. Use the Poisson probabilities table to approximate P(x=0), P(x=1), P(x=2), P(x=3), P(x=4), P(x=5).
D. Are the probability distributions of parts b and c consistent or is the Poisson approximation inaccurate. Explain.

Problem 2 ? Consider the Data on Heights of NBA Players in the Data Set Given:
A. Use Excel to obtain a histogram. Do these heights appear to be symmetrically distributed? If not, which direction do they seem to be skewed?
B. Compute mu and sigma.
C. What percentage of these heights lie in the interval mu - sigma to mu + sigma? What about in the interval mu - 2 sigma to mu + 2 sigma? In the interval mu - 3 sigma to mu + 3 sigma?
D. How do the percentages in part c compare to the corresponding percentages for a normal distribution (68%, 95%, and 99.7% respectively)?

A random sample of 41 basketball players from The Official NBA Basketball Encyclopedia gave the sample standard deviation for player height as s=3.32 inches. How many more players from this encyclopedia should be included in the sample to be 99% sure that the sample mean is within 0.50 inches of the population mean of all player

Using the Internet, students will access information and statistics about professional basketball teams. They will use these data to explore relationships between player characteristics and their performance on the basketball court.
I provided an example of the NBA project in the attched documents.

NBA salaries averaged 2.1 million with a standard deviation of 1.2 million in 2000. Suppose a sample of 36 NBAplayers was taken. A. What is the sampling distribution of the sample mean? aa) Approximately N(2.1, 1.2) (unit in millions) bb)Approximately N(1.2, 2.1) cc) Approximately N(2.1, .2) dd) Approximately N(1.2, .35) B. Wha

9.Nationally, 38% of fourth-graders cannot read an age-appropriate book. The following data show the number of children, by age, identified as learning disabled under special education. Most of these children have reading problems that should be identified and corrected before third grade. Current federal law prohibits most chil

I need assistance with locating four scholarly articles, summarizing them and discussing the significance and relation to the question â??Is there a correlation between the playerâ??s salaries and the number of winsâ? for each article.

Prepare at SWOT analysis of a sport organization or facility, which could be a:

• Sporting goods manufa

Below are questions regarding the weight of football players in the NFL. I need assistance in figuring out the following questions.
1. The weight of football players in the NFL is normally distributed with a mean of 200 pounds and a standard deviation of 25 pounds. What is the probability that a randomly selected football
