True/False
_____11. A normal distribution is a distribution of discrete data that produces a bell-shaped.
_____12. For the normal distribution, the observations closer to the middle will occur with increasing frequency.
_____13. There are 2 types of random variable which are discrete random variable and continuous random sample.
_____14. The variance is the expected value of the squared difference between the random variable and its mean.
_____15. For the normal distribution, one-half of the observation are above the mean and one - half are below it.
_____16. Most of the normal distribution can be converted into a single distribution: the Z distribution.
_____17. The H_o cannot be written without having an equal sign.
_____18. The binomial probability table gives probability for value of p greater than 0.5.
_____19. The mean of the discrete probability distribution for a discrete random variable is called its expected value.
_____20. A standard Z table score can be used to find probability for any normal curve problems that have been converted to Z scores.
