1 Unit 4 – Probability and Statistics Section 12.7 Day 10

2 Warm-Up Using the given data set: 77, 76, 83, 88, 90, 85, 81, 77, 95, Find the mean, median, mode 2. Find the range and interquartile range 3. Create a box-and-whisker plot of the data 4. Find the standard deviation (Show all your work.)

3 Warm-Up Answers Data set in order: 76, 77, 77, 81, 83, 85, 88, 89, 90, Mean = 84.1; Median = 84 ; Mode = Range = 19; Interquartile range = Create a box-and-whisker plot of the data 4. Standard deviation σ = 6.1

4 Section 12.7 Normal Distributions Goal: calculate probabilities using normal distributions Normal Curve – symmetrical bell-shaped curve Important symbols  σ (Sigma) represents standard deviation  x (x-bar) represents mean

5 Section 12.7 Normal Distributions Important Aspects of a Normal Curve  Total Area under the curve is 1  68% of the area lies within 1 standard deviation of the mean  95% of the area lies within 2 standard deviations of the mean  99.7% of the area lies within 3 standard deviations of the mean

7 Example 1 The price of sandals is normally distributed with a mean of $36 and a standard deviation of $9. A) What percent were priced between $18 and $72? B) What is the probability that a randomly chosen pair is priced between $9 and $18?

8 Example 1 (cont.) $36 $45$54$63$27$18$9 34% 13.5% 2.35% 13.5% 0.15% A) What percent were priced between $18 and $72? 97.5%

9 Example 1 (cont.) $36 $45$54$63$27$18$9 34% 13.5% 2.35% 13.5% 0.15% B) What is the probability that a randomly chosen pair is priced between $9 and $18? 2.35%

10 Example 2 The weight of strawberries packed in a medium-sized container was normally distributed with a mean of ounces and a standard deviation of 0.34 ounce. A) If you randomly choose 2 containers of strawberries, what is the probability that both weigh less than 15.5 ounces? B) If you randomly choose 2 containers of strawberries, What is the probability that both of the containers weighs at least ounces? C) If you randomly choose 2 containers of strawberries, that one container weighs between 15.5 and ounces, and the 2 nd container weighs at least ounces?

11 Example 2 (cont.) % 13.5% 2.35% 13.5% 0.15% (oz.) A) Both containers weigh less than 15.5 oz? = or %

12 Example 2 (cont.) % 13.5% 2.35% 13.5% 0.15% (oz.) B) Both containers weigh at least oz? = or 70.56%

13 Example 2 (cont.) % 13.5% 2.35% 13.5% 0.15% (oz.) C) Between 15.5 and oz and at least 16.86? ( ) = or %
