Samples of size n = 90 are randomly selected from the population of numbers (0 through 9) produced by a random-number generator, and the variance is found for each sample. What is the distribution of the sample variances?

Answer: chi square distribution with df = n-1 Step-by-step explanation: Given that sample of size n=90  are randomly selected from the population of numbers (0 through 9) produced by a random-number generator Since sample size is large and randomness is followed we can assume that the variable follows a normal …

Consider a political discussion group consisting of 9 ​Democrats, 7 ​Republicans, and 3 Independents. Suppose that two group members are randomly​ selected, in​ succession, to attend a political convention. Find the probability of selecting no Democrats

Well, first you would add up how many objects you have to select from 9 democrats + 7 Republicans + 3 Independents = 19 total peopleso then you would put how many people you can have over that numberso since we don’t want any Democrats it would be 10/19 (.52)and …

The body temperatures of adults are normally distributed with a mean of 98.6° f and a standard deviation of 0.60° f. if 36 adults are randomly selected, find the probability that their mean body temperature is greater than 98.4° f. 0.0228 0.8188 0.9360 0.9772

Here the population standard deviation is 0.60 degree F.  If a sample of 36 adults is randomly selected, that results in a sample standard deviation of 0.60 degree F divided by the square root of 36:  0.10 degree F. The probability in question is the area under the standard normal …

In a quiz contest, Mary answers 90% of the questions correctly without any additional clues from the quiz coordinator. The randomly generated numbers below simulate this situation. The numbers 0 to 8 represent questions answered correctly without additional clues, and the number 9 represents questions that needed additional clues.

To solve this problem, we should note that there are: total questions = 100 questions answered correctly = 90 questions that needed additional clues = 10 1. The first question is to find the probability that in the third question, Mary would need additional clue. Therefore this implies that in …

Researchers want to test the effectiveness of a new anti-anxiety medication. three hundred eighty patients were recruited to participate in the clinical trial and were randomly assigned to two groups, of which one received the medication, and the other, a placebo. in clinical testing, 64 out of 200 people taking the medication reported symptoms of anxiety. of the other 180 people receiving a placebo, 88 reported symptoms of anxiety. do you think if the patients in the two groups performed significantly different with respect to symptoms of anxiety? please use 0.05 as the level of significance. (hint: use 1.96 and -196 as the critical z-values).
