Problem:1 Suppose that x is normally distributed random variable with µ = 11 and variance = 4. Find each of the following:
a)P(10<x <12)
b)P(x > 13.24)
c)P(x < x0) 0.75 find Xo

A sample with n = 50 provides a sample mean of 9.46 and sample standard deviation of 2. At alpha = 0.05, what is the critical value for z or t? What is the rejection rule?

Suppose that x is normally distributed random variable with µ = 11 and σ2 = 4. Find each of the following:

a) P(10≤ x ≤12)

.
Let us find Z for X=10, and X=12. Z is given by

For X=10,

Negative sign implies that value of X lies in left side of mean.

From the tables we get Corresponding value of Probability = 0.1915

For X=12,
Positive sign implies that value of X lies in right side of mean.

From the tables we get Corresponding value of Probability = 0.1915

For ...

Solution Summary

Solution explains the steps in finding probability for different values of X. X is normally distributed.
Second problem is about hypothesis testing for normal distribution. Critical Value of Z and rejection rule have been worked out.
