The normal distribution is sometimes called the bell curve because Alexander Graham Bell discovered it.

false


In the normal distribution, values in the distribution being measured are close to the mean (high or low values are infrequently found).

true


For a given distribution the average is 15.5 and the standard deviation is 1.5.
If a sample is taken at random, which value is most likely? 
16.3


In the standard normal curve, the mean is and a standard deviation of .

0
1 

Jim Tree wants to analyze his shipment of trees based on height. He knows the height of the trees is normally distributed so he can use the standard normal distribution. He measures the height of 100 randomly selected trees in his shipment. He finds the mean is 65 inches and the standard deviation is 10 inches.
What percentage of the trees will be between 55 inches and 75 inches? 
68%


Choose the correct answer.
Tommy Teacher wants to analyze the weights of the students at his school. He knows the weight of the students is normally distributed so he can use the standard normal distribution. He measures the weight of 100 randomly selected students in the school. He finds the mean is 80 pounds and the standard deviation is 8 pounds. Out of 100 students, how many should weigh between 64 and 96 pounds? 
95


The deviation of a value (x) from the mean of the sample divided by the standard deviation (s)of the sample is known as the "z" value or zscore.

true


A zscore of 1.0 corresponds to a value one standard deviation from the mean.

true


Since the normal curve is not symmetrical the area corresponding to a zscore of +1.0 will be different from that corresponding to 1.0.

false


Choose the correct answer.
A home business has an average income of $900.00 per month with a standard deviation of $15.00. If the income in a given month is $930.00, what zscore corresponds to this value? 
2


Enter the answer to the nearest tenth.
Another home business has an average income of $1.200.00 per month with a standard deviation of $100.00. If the income in a given month is $1,030.00, what zscore corresponds to this value? 
1.7


Clyde Cement wants to analyze a shipment of bags of cement. He knows the weight of the bags is normally distributed so he can use the standard normal distribution. He measures the weight of 600 randomly selected bags in the shipment. Next, he calculates the mean and standard deviation of their weights. The mean is 50 lbs and the standard deviation is 1.5 lbs. What percentage of the bags of cement will weigh less than 50 lbs.?

50


Given a population that meets the conditions of a normal distribution, samples taken at random will also be normally distributed regardless of sample size.

true


Given an infinite population that does not meet the conditions of a normal distribution, samples taken at random will also not be normally distributed regardless of sample size.

false


Complete the following statement.
The area under the curve associated with a z score of 3 is _____. 
0.4987


Standard error describes a measure of the variability for the means of samples taken from a population

true


Because sample means were being tested, the is used to calculate the zscore.

standard error


The term describes a measure of the variability for the different means.
The is a measure of the variability of individual data items. 
standard error
standard deviation 

Deviation is the difference between any value and the mean of the set.

true


Use the following data to answer the question.
10, 9, 4, 7, 5.5 The range for this data is _____. 
6


A value one standard deviation from the mean is less likely to occur than a value three standard deviations from the mean.

false


If a data point has a corresponding zscore of 1.5, then it is one and a half standard deviations above the mean value.

false


Enter the answer to the nearest tenth.
A small business has an average income of $3,000.00 per month with a standard deviation of $250.00. If the income in a given month is $3,300.00, what zscore corresponds to this value? 
1.2


To find the range of a set of data, you must _____.

subtract the smallest number from the largest

A family needs a new car, but isn't sure they can fit the payment into their budget. A sample of 36 months of grocery bills yields a mean of $94 with a standard deviation of $10. If the upper limit of a 95% confidence level is below $100, the family can afford to buy the car.
