1 Warm-up 7.2 Generating Sampling Distributions Free Response QuestionSimple random samples of young and older adults in a large city were surveyed as to credit card debt, and the data are summarized:n Mean Median Min Max Q Q SDYoung:Older:(a) Is there evidence that either of these samples were drawn from populations with normal distributions? Explain.(b)Assume that both samples are drawn from normally distributed populations. Would a greater percentage of younger or older adults more likely be able to pay off their credit debt with $1,550? Explain.
4 E #1 - 4E1. a. b. The larger the sample size, the more trials listed under frequency for the true mean of the data. c. The larger the sample size the smaller the spread of the sampling distribution E 3. a. b. c. The midrange for the entire page is = 19/2 = 9.5 As shown in the table the true range is 7.5. The midrange of the samples will be higher than the average rectangle area.
7 7.2 Generating Sampling Distributions Sampling Distribution of a Mean If you toss two fair dice 10,000, how would you expect the histogram to look like if you were graphing the results of the average of two die?
8 Central Limit TheoremThe sampling distribution of any mean becomes more nearly Normal as the sample size grows. Most importantly the observations need to be independent and collected with randomization.FYI “central” in the theorem name means “fundamental”
9 CLT and EquationsThe CLT requires essentially the same assumptions andconditions from modeling proportions: Independence,Sample size, Randomization, 10% and large enough sampleThe standard deviation of the sampling distribution issometimes called the standard error of the mean.
10 Properties of Sampling Distribution of Sample Mean pg 430 If a random sample of size n is selected from a populationwith mean and standard deviation , thenThe mean of the sampling distribution of x equation equals the mean of the population, :The standard deviation , the sampling distribution of, sometimes called the standard error of the mean:Using the formula above you can find standard error of the sample mean without simulation
13 Physical Education Department and BMI study A college physical education department asked a random sample of 200 female students to self-report their heights and weights, but the percentage of students with body mass indexes over 25 seemed suspiciously low. One possible explanation may be that the respondents “shaded“ their weights down a bit. The CDC reports that the mean weight of 18-year-old women is lb, with a standard deviation of lb, but these 200 randomly selected women reported a mean weight of only 140 lb. Question: Based on the Central Limit Theorem and the Rule, does the mean weight in this sample seem exceptionally low or might this just be random sample-to-sample variation?
14 7.1 to 7.2 ReviewExample 1: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the average weight of a man is 190 lb with a standard deviation of 59 lb. An elevator in our building has a weight limit of 10 persons or 2500 lb. What’s the probability that if 10 men get on the elevator, they will overload its weight limit?

15 Example 2: Harold fails to study for his statistics final Example 2: Harold fails to study for his statistics final. The final has 100 multiple choice questions, each with 5 choices. Harold has no choice but to guess randomly at all 100 questions. What is the probability that Harold will get at least 30% on the test?

16 Common Test Mistakes2. Suppose you buy a raffle ticket in each of 25 consecutive weeks in support of your favorite charity. One of the 1200 raffle tickets sold each week pays $2000. What do you expect to win for those 25 weeks, and with what standard deviation? A. win about $0, give or take about $58 B. win about $25, give or take about $58 C. win about $42, give or take about $58 D. win about $42, give or take about $289 E. win about $210, give or take about $1443
17 3. Suppose Alex rolls a fair die until either a one or three appears on top. What is the probability that it will take Alex more than three rolls to get either a one or three the first time? A. B. C. D. E. FORM B 10. d. was not capable of being solved using Ch. 6 concepts.
18 Common Mistakes on Test what is the mean and standard deviation for the number of defects for pairs of shoes produced by this company.Form A Form B1. This table gives the percentage of women who ultimately have a given number of children. For example, 19% of women ultimately have 3 children. What is the probability that two randomly selected women will have a combined total of exactly 2 children?0 and 2, and 1, and 00.18* * * 0.18 = 0.1592. For the sake of efficiency, a shoe company decides to produce the left shoe of each pair at one site and the right shoe at a different site. If the two sites produce shoes with a number of defects reflected by
19 Expected Number of Success and Expected Number of Trials Binomial Distribution: Flipping a coin 6 times, about howmany times flip head on average.In a simple random sample of 15 students, how many are expected to be younger than % of students are under 20.Geometric Distribution: Flipping a coin, when do you expect(on average) to have your first success.What is the expected number of interview before the second personwithout health insurance is found? (16% no health insurance)
20 Expected Number of Success and Expected Number of Trials Binomial Distribution: Flipping a coin 6 times, about howmany times flip head on average.What is the average number of students without laptops you would expect to find after sampling 5 random students? (60% w/ laptops)Geometric Distribution: Flipping a coin, when do you expect(on average) to have your first success.On average how many otters would biologists have to check before finding an infected otter? (20% are infected)
