The student will demonstrate and compare properties of the central limit theorem.

Calculate the following:
μ
_{x} = _______
σ
_{x} = _______
Collect the data
Use a random number generator to randomly select four samples of size
n = 5 from the given population. Record your samples in
[link] . Then, for each sample, calculate the mean to the nearest tenth. Record them in the spaces provided. Record the sample means for the rest of the class.
Complete the table:
Sample 1
Sample 2
Sample 3
Sample 4
Sample means from other groups:
Means:
$\overline{x}$ = ____
$\overline{x}$ = ____
$\overline{x}$ = ____
$\overline{x}$ = ____
Calculate the following:
$\overline{x}$ = _______
s_{
$\overline{x}$ } = _______
Again, use a random number generator to randomly select four samples from the population. This time, make the samples of size
n = 10. Record the samples in
[link] . As before, for each sample, calculate the mean to the nearest tenth. Record them in the spaces provided. Record the sample means for the rest of the class.
Sample 1
Sample 2
Sample 3
Sample 4
Sample means from other groups
Means:
$\overline{x}$ = ____
$\overline{x}$ = ____
$\overline{x}$ = ____
$\overline{x}$ = ____
Calculate the following:
$\overline{x}$ = ______
s_{
$\overline{x}$ } = ______
For the original population, construct a histogram. Make intervals with a bar width of one day. Sketch the graph using a ruler and pencil. Scale the axes.
Draw a smooth curve through the tops of the bars of the histogram. Use one to two complete sentences to describe the general shape of the curve.
Repeat the procedure for
n = 5
For the sample of
n = 5 days averaged together, construct a histogram of the averages (your means together with the means of the other groups). Make intervals with bar widths of
$\frac{1}{2}$ a day. Sketch the graph using a ruler and pencil. Scale the axes.
Draw a smooth curve through the tops of the bars of the histogram. Use one to two complete sentences to describe the general shape of the curve.
Repeat the procedure for
n = 10
For the sample of
n = 10 days averaged together, construct a histogram of the averages (your means together with the means of the other groups). Make intervals with bar widths of
$\frac{1}{2}$ a day. Sketch the graph using a ruler and pencil. Scale the axes.
Draw a smooth curve through the tops of the bars of the histogram. Use one to two complete sentences to describe the general shape of the curve.
Discussion questions
Compare the three histograms you have made, the one for the population and the two for the sample means. In three to five sentences, describe the similarities and differences.
State the theoretical (according to the clt) distributions for the sample means.
n = 5:
$\overline{x}$ ~ _____(_____,_____)
n = 10:
$\overline{x}$ ~ _____(_____,_____)
Are the sample means for
n = 5 and
n = 10 “close” to the theoretical mean,
μ
_{x} ? Explain why or why not.
Which of the two distributions of sample means has the smaller standard deviation? Why?
As
n changed, why did the shape of the distribution of the data change? Use one to two complete sentences to explain what happened.

A population consists of five numbers 2,3,6,8,11.consists all possible samples of size two which can be drawn with replacement from this population. calculate the S.E of sample means
A particular train reaches the destination in time in 75 per cent of the times.A person travels 5 times in that train.Find probability that he will reach the destination in time, for all the 5 times.
population is the whole set and the sample is the subset of population.
umair
if the data set is drawn out of a larger set it is a sample and if it is itself the whole complete set it can be treated as population.

hello everyone
if I have the data set which contains measurements of each part during 10 years, may I say that it's the population or it's still a sample because it doesn't contain my measurements in the future?
thanks
Alexander
Pls I hv a problem on t test is there anyone who can help?
Peggy
What's your problem Peggy Abang
Dominic
Bhavika is right
Dominic
what is the problem peggy?

Hi eny population has a special definition. if that data set had all of characteristics of definition, that is population. otherwise that is a sample

three coins are tossed. find the probability of no head
if the diameter will be greater than 3 cm then the bullet will not fit in the barrel of the gun so you are bothered for both the sides.
umair
in this test you are worried on both the ends
umair
lets say you are designing a bullet for thw gun od diameter equals 3cm.if the diameter of the bullet is less than 3 cm then you wont be able to shoot it

In order to apply weddles rule for numerical integration what is minimum number of ordinates
We have rules of numerical integration like Trapezoidal rule, Simpson's 1/3 and 3/8 rules, Boole's rule and Weddle rule for n =1,2,3,4 and 6 but for n=5?
John
Someone should help me please, how can I calculate the Class Mark, Relative frequency and the cumulative frequency on a frequency table?
descriptive statistics gives you the result on the the data like you can calculate various things like variance,mean,median etc. however, inferential stats is involved in prediction of future trends using the previous stored data.
umair
if you need more help i am up for the help.
umair
Thanks a lot

Inferential Statistics involves drawing conclusions on a population based on analysis of a sample. Descriptive statistics summarises or describes your current data as numerical calculations or graphs.
fred
my pleasure😊. Helping others offers me satisfaction 😊
umair
inferential statistics the results of the statistical analysis of the sample data of the population are used for generalization or decision making about the population
why
descriptive statistics, the analyzed data are presented without generalization or decision making about the population.
