A random sample of 25 statistics examinations was taken. the average score in the sample was 76 with a standard deviation of 12. assuming the scores are normally distributed, the 99% confidence interval for the population average examination score is:

Since the sample size is less than 30, therefore we use the t statistic. Let us define the given variables: N = sample size = 25 X = average score = 76 s = standard deviation = 12 99% Confidence interval Degrees of freedom = n – 1 = 24 …

Suppose that people’s heights (in centimeters) are normally distributed with a mean of 170 and a standard deviation of 5. We find the heights of 50 people.

We havemean=mu=170standard deviation=sigma=5 can now calculate the Zmin and Zmax using Z=(X-mean)/standard deviationZmin=(165-170)/5=-1Zmax=(175-170)/5=+1From normal probability tables, P(z<Zmin)=P(z<-1)=0.15866P(z<Zmax)=P(z<+1)=0.84134P(165<x<175)=P(Zmin<z<Zmax)=0.84134-0.15866= 0.68269

A company is setting its direct materials and direct labor standards for its leading product. Direct material costs from the supplier are​ $7 per square​ foot, net of purchase discount.​ Freight-in amounts to​ $0.10 per square foot. Basic wages of the assembly line personnel are​ $19 per hour. Payroll taxes are approximately​ 25% of wages. How much is the direct labor cost standard per​ hour

The formula for calculating the direct labor standard is: Direct labor standard = Basic wages + Payroll tax or Direct labor standard = Basic wages + 25% of Basic wages   Substituting the given values into the equation: Direct labor standard = $19 + 0.25 * $19 Direct labor standard …

Sam is measuring the velocity of a car at different times. After two hours, the velocity of the car was 50km/h. After six hours, the velocity of the car is 54km/h. Part A: Write an equation in two variables in standard form that can be used to describe the velocity of the car at different times. Show your work and define the variables used. (5points) Part B: How can you graph the obtained in Part A for the first seven hours? (5points)

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 02:54 AM You are given the time and speed so from there you can get the points (2,50) and (6,54) once you got that you can see how the slope is 1 and b=48x-y=-48 (standard form) part B= 1    492    503    514    525 …

Describe how you would determine whether two lines are parallel by looking at the equations of the lines in standard form.

Answer: By comparing the slopes of both lines. Step-by-step explanation: The general form of a straight line is y = mx + c where m is the slope of the line and c is the y-intercept of the line. For e.g. Consider, the lines y = 2x – 3 and …

What price do farmers get for the peach crops? in the third week of June, a random sample of 40 farming regions gave a sample mean of $6.88 per basket. assume that the standard deviation is known to be $1.92 per basket. find a 90% confidence interval for the population mean price per basket that farmers in this region get for their peach crop

Given:Sample size, n = 40Sample mean, xb = $6.88Population std. deviation, σ = $1.92 (known)Confidence interval = 90% Assume normal distribution for the population.The confidence interval is(xb + 1.645*(σ/√n), xb – 1.645*(σ/√n)= (6.88 + (1.645*1.92)/√40, 6.88 – (1.645*1.92)/√40)= (7.38, 6.38) Answer: The 90% confidence interval is (7.38, 6.38)

Consider college officials in admissions registration, counseling, financial aid campus ministry, food services, and so on. How much money do these people make each year? Suppose you read in your local newspaper that 45 officials in student services earn an average of $50,340 each year. Assume that the standard deviation is $10,780 for salaries of college officials and student services. Find a 90% confidence interval for the population mean salaries of such personnel. Round your answer to the nearest dollar and don;t forget to use the $ sign.

Since sample size is > 40, we use the z-score in calculating for the confidence interval. The formula is given as: Confidence Interval = X ± z * σ / sqrt (n) Where, X = mean = $50,340 z = z-score which is taken from standard distribution tables at 90% …

19. You roll two standard number cubes. What is the probability that the sum is odd, given than one of the number cubes shows a 1? Show your work.

there are 6 numbers per cube,  the chance of rolling one and getting the number 1 is a 1/6 probability for the sum to be odd, you need to roll either a 2, 4 or 6 on the second cube so that gives you a 3/6 probability  so 1/6 x …

Rewrite the slope-intercept form equation into standard form. y = –2x + 4 A. x + 2y = 4 B. 2x + y = 4 C. 4x + y = 2 D. 4x + 2y = 0 Please select the best answer from the choices provided

The answer is B because if you have y = -2x + 4, to get the -2x to the same side as y, you need to add, making it y + 2x = 4. It would also be postive no matter what because this formula needs to be positive. … …

The weights of certain machine components are normally distributed with a mean of 8.5 g and a standard deviation of 0.09 g. Find the two weights that separate the top 3% and the bottom 3%. These weights could serve as limits used to identify which components should be rejected. Round to the nearest hundredth of a gram.

To solve this problem,lets say that X = the weight of the machine components. X is normally distributed with mean=8.5 and sd=0.09 We need to find x1 and x2 such that P(X<x1)=0.03 and P(X>x2)=0.03  Standardizing: P( Z< (x1 – 8.5)/0.09 ) =0.03 P(Z > (x2 – 8.5)/0.09 ) =0.03.  From the Z …

Read the excerpt from “mother tongue.” lately, ive been giving more thought to the kind of english my mother speaks. like others, i have described it to people as broken or fractured english. but i wince when i say that. it has always bothered me that i can think of no other way to describe it other than broken, as if it were damaged and needed to be fixed, as if it lacked a certain wholeness and soundness. what best supports the inference that tan believes nonstandard english is no less valid than standard english? tan spends a lot of time thinking about her mothers fractured english. tan has trouble thinking of descriptive words when she is writing. tans american education makes it difficult for her to understand her mother. tan winces when she describes her mothers english as broken.

Answer : The following option best supports the inference that tan believes nonstandard English is no less valid than standard English : Tan winces when she describes her mothers English as broken. Tan winces because she considers her mother’s nonstandard English as her mother tongue. It is perfectly clear and …
