# Calculating mean, standard deviation and z-score

Please help with the following statistics problem. Provide step by step calculations for each.

You learned that 27% of all small business owned by non-Hispanic whites nationwide are women-owned firms. In a random sample of 350 small businesses owned by non-Hispanic whites, let x be the number that are owned by a woman.

a) Find the mean of x.

b) Find the standard deviation of x.

c) Find the z-score for the value x= 99.5.

d) Find the approximate probability that the number of small businesses in the sample of 350 that are owned by a woman is 100 or more.

#### Solution Preview

a) Find the mean of x.

p=probability that small business owned by non-hispanic whiles is woman=0.27

n=350

Mean=np=350*.27=94.5

b) Find the standard deviation of x.

Variance=np(1-p)=350*0.27*(1-0.27)= ...
