1.
Which of the following characteristics do normal and uniform distributions have in common?
Your Answer: The distributions are symmetric and the mean is equal to the median.
Correct
2.
The figure below represents which of the following distributions?
Correct
3.
If x is uniformly distributed from 5 to 12, (5 ≤ x ≤ 12), determine the standard deviation of this
distribution.
4.
The area to the right of the mean in a normal distribution is indicated by which of the following?
Correct
5.
A standard normal distribution has which of the following properties?
Your Answer: The mean is equal to 0 and the variance is equal to 1.
Correct
6.
Let z be a normal random variable with a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. Determine P(z
≤ 1.4).
This is P(z ≤ -1.4).
7.
Let x be a normal random variable with a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 3. A z score was
calculated for x, and the z score is -1.2. What is the value of x?
Correct
8.
Let x be a normal random variable with a mean of 35 and a standard deviation of 4. Determine
P(30 ≤ x ≤ 37).
Correct
9.
What percentage of a normal distribution is found within a range of z scores from -2 to +2?
0.9772 – 0.0228 indicates approximately 95% of the normal distribution falls between z = -2 and
z = +2.
10
.
Suppose you are working with a data set that is normally distributed with a mean of 70 and a
standard deviation of 10. Determine the value of x such that 65% of the values are greater than x.
Correct
11
.
In which of the following continuous distributions are extreme values most likely (within its
range)?
Correct
12
.
On the day before an exam in an online class, students email questions to the professor at a rate
of 1 every 20 minutes, exponentially distributed. Determine the probability that more than 1 hour
elapses between email messages.
Correct
13
.
For an exponential distribution with the parameter lambda equal to 10 per minute, what is the
mean of the exponential distribution?
The mean of a standard normal distribution is 0.
14
.
Let x be a binomial random variable with n = 30 and p = 0.7. Using the normal distribution to
approximate the binomial, to determine the probability of more than 16 but less than 25
successes, which of the following is the correct representation?
Correct Answer: P(16.5 < x < 24.5)
The correction for continuity adjustment is 0.5 units outside of the binomial range. In this case,
we can consider successes between 17 and 24, inclusive, which leads to a normal approximation
that uses 16.5 and 24.5.
15
.
Let x be a binomial random variable with n = 25 and p = 0.6. Using the normal distribution to
approximate the binomial, determine the probability that more than 12 successes will occur.
