Normal Distribution

Normal Distribution

#2 If you are grading the class according to your z score in a normal distribution. would you rather have a score of 70 in class A where the mean is 55 and the standard deviation is 10, or a score of 80 in class B where the mean is 60 and standard deviation is 15? What would the percentile rank be in class A and B and what does

Normal Approximation

Here is a simple probability model for multiple-choice tests. Suppose that each student has probability p of correctly answering a question chosen at random from a universe of possible questions. (A strong student has a higher p than a weak student.) Answers to different questions are independant. Jodi is a good student for whom

Monthly income and expense plan for the Terrels

Donna and Sherman Terrel are preparing a budget for 2003. Donna is a systems analyst with an airplane manufacturer, and Sherman is working on a master's degree in educational psychology. The Terrels do not have any children or other dependents. Donna estimates her salary will be about $36,000 in 2003; Sherman expects to work onl

Probability, normal distribution

An airline company knows that over the long run, only 90% of passengers who reserve seats show up for their flight. On a flight with 300 seats, the airline accepts 324 reservations. Assume the passengers show up independently. 1. Give the upper bound on the probability that the flight will be overbooked (more than 300 peop

Determining the sampling distribution of a proportion.

According to a well-known newspaper journal, 58.3% of the 222,900 households in a particular county get the Sunday edition of the local newspaper. Suppose that random samples of 200 households are selected. In what proportion of the samples will between 55% and 60% of the households get the Sunday edition of the newspaper?

Minneapolis and New Orleans

What is the difference in the average daily hotel room rates between Minneapolis and New Orleans? Suppose we want to estimate this difference by taking hotel rate samples from each city and using a 98% confidence level. The data for such a study follows. Use this data to produce an interval estimate and also a point estimat

Normal Distribution. Suppose that the height of a man is normally distributed with a mean of 5'9" (69") and a standard deviation of 2". Find the minimum height of the ceiling of an airplane, such that at most 2% of the men walking down the aisle will have to duck their heads?

Suppose that the height of a man is normally distributed with a mean of 5'9" (69") and a standard deviation of 2". Find the minimum height of the ceiling of an airplane, such that at most 2% of the men walking down the aisle will have to duck their heads? A. Define the random variable? B. List the parameters for the distribut

Standard deviation

Please use MINITAB to solve or explain how I can use MINITAB to solve. 7. Assume that the midterm's scores X are normally distributed. Let X have a mean of 72 and a standard deviation of 12. Then answer the following three questions: a. What is the probability of obtaining a score at least 90? b. What is the probabil

Incomes in two particular neighborhoods follow normal distribution.

QUESTION: Example: Family incomes in two particular neighborhoods follow a normal distribution. For Neighborhood 1 the mean is $26,500, with a standard deviation of $15,000. For Neighborhood 2, the mean is $30,000 with a standard deviation of $18,000. A) What proportion of families in Neighborhood 1 have incomes below the

Normal Distribution

Scores on a college admissions exam are normally distributed with mean score 642 and standard deviation 76. The college wants to set the passing score so that only the best 10% of all applicants pass. what is the passing score?
