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.
Questions & Answers
binomial distribution tends to normal distribution
if sample size n very large and probability tends to 0.5
if these both conditions are satisfied by binomial distribution it would tends to normal distribution
sravani
n tends to infinite i.e large
Probability tends to 0 i.e indefinitely small.
np = lamda
Anji
the above is poison to Bin
Anji
no of trails n tends to indefinitely large..i.e infine
neither p nor q is very small
Then bin tends to normal

if the death of of the snow is my yard is normally distributed with the m is equals to 2.5 and
what is the probability that a randomly chosen location with have a no that between 2.25 and 2.76
A consumer advocate agency wants to estimate the mean repair cost of a washing machine. the agency randomly selects 40 repair cost and find the mean to be $100.00.The standards deviation is $17.50. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the mean.
Sixty-four third year high school students were given a standardized reading comprehension test. The mean and standard deviation obtained were 52.27 and 8.24, respectively. Is the mean significantly different from the population mean of 50? Use the 5% level of significance.
Simple Bar Chart is a Diagram which shows the data values in form of horizontal bars. It shows categories along y-axis and values along x-axis. The x-axis displays above the bars and y-axis displays on left of the bars with the bars extending to the right side according to their values.
add all the data and divide by the number of data sets. For example, if test scores were 70, 60, 70, 80 the total is 280 and the total data sets referred to as N is 4. Therfore the mean or arthritmatic average is 70. I hope this helps.
