A. Smaller, the same A. Smaller, the same C. Larger, n(1-p) C. Larger, n(1-p) B.Larger, np B.Larger, np D. Smaller, n(1-p) D. Smaller, n(1-p) _______ samples give larger spread. As long as the pop.size is at least 10x the sample size, the spread of the sampling distribution is approx. ________ for any pop. size
A. smaller A. smaller C. you can’t tell from C. you can’t tell from the info given B. larger B. larger D. about the same D. about the same A national opinion poll recently estimated that 44% of all adults agree that parents of school-age children should be given vouchers for any public or private school of their choice. The polling organization used a probability sampling method for which the sample proportion has a normal distribution with a standard deviation of 1.5%. If the sample were drawn by the same method from the state of North Carolina (population 9.3 million) instead of from the entire U.S. (population 280 million), would this standard deviation be larger, about the same or smaller?
A. the sample size is at A. the sample size is at least 10x the population size C. the population is at C. the population is at least 10x the sample size B. np>= 10 B. np>= 10 and n(1-p)>=10 D. population proportion D. population proportion is close to 1 We can only use the standard deviation formula for when
A. the population is at A. the population is at least 10x the sample size C. p is close to 1 or 0 C. p is close to 1 or 0 B. np>=10 B. np>=10 and n(1-p)>=10 D. the population distribution D. the population distribution is close to normal We can use the normal approximation to the sampling distribution of when
A. P ( 0.67) A. P ( 0.67) C. P( 0.67) C. P( 0.67) B. P (p 0.67) B. P (p 0.67) D. P(p 0.67) D. P(p 0.67) If I wanted to find the probability that a sample of 1012 adults in which 67% or fewer say they drink the cereal milk, I would be looking for..
