Introduction to Statistics
Revision for Test 2
Question 11
A study by the Statistics Department concluded that 83.1 percent of students of UCSF get score marks
in Test. A sample of 12 students is selected.
What is the probability the students get A grade exactly 7 of the 12 students?

Question 12
An American Society of Investor survey found 25% of individual investors have used a discount
broker. In a random sample of nine individuals, what is the probability:
(a) Exactly two of the sampled individuals have used a discount broker?
(b) Exactly four of them have used a discount broker?
(c) None of them have used a discount broker?

Question 13
Assume baggage is rarely lost by Northeast Airlines. Suppose a random sample of 1,000 flights shows
a total of 300 bags were lost. If the number of lost bags per flight follows a Poisson distribution with
u = 0.25, find the probability of not losing any bags.

Question 14
Southwest Arizona State University provides bus service to students while they are on campus. A bus
arrives at the North Main Street and College Drive stop every 45 minutes between 6 A.M. and 11 P.M.
during weekdays. Students arrive at the bus stop at random times. The time that a student waits is
uniformly distributed from 0 to 45 minutes.
a. Draw a graph of this distribution.
b. Show that the area of this uniform distribution is 1.00.
c. How long will a student typically have to wait for a bus? In other words, what is the mean
waiting time? What is the standard deviation of the waiting times?
d. What is the probability a student will wait more than 35 minutes?
e. What is the probability a student will wait between 15 and 25 minutes?

Question 15
i.
ii.

Draw the normal distribution graph and level the area.


List 3 (THREE) characteristics of normal probability distribution.

Question 16
The weekly incomes of shift foremen in the glass industry follow the normal probability distribution
with a mean of RM1,000 and a standard deviation of RM100.
(a) What is the z-value for the income, lets call it X, of a foreman who earns RM1,100 per week?
(b) What is the likelihood of selecting a foreman whose weekly income is between $1,000 and
$1,100?
(c) What is the probability of selecting a shift foreman in the glass industry whose income is:
i. Between RM790 and RM1,000?
ii. Less than RM790?
iii. Between RM1,150 and RM1,250

Question 17
A Washington, D.C., think tank announces the typical teenager sent 50 text messages per day in
2011. To update that estimate, you phone a sample of teenagers and ask them how many text
messages they sent the previous day. Their response were:
52

165

48

50

47

58

135

213

29

59

62

120

At the 0.05 level, can you conclude that the mean number is greater than 50?

Question 18
The mean income per person in the United States is $35,000 and the distribution of incomes follows a
normal distribution. A random sample of 10 residents of Wilmington, Delaware, had a mean of
$45,000 with a standard deviation of $8,000. At the 0.05 level of significance, is enough evidence to
conclude that residents of Wilmington, Delaware, have more income than the national average?
