Green M&M’s: Consider a class of 20 statistics students, where each student is given 5 small bags of M&M’s and asked to count the number of green M&M’s. The results are shown below. The population mean is for a bag of this size is 10.06 and the population standard deviation is 2.59.

MA3110: Module 3 Sampling Distribution and Confidence Interval Exercise 3.2 Sample Mean Distribution and T-Interval

1. Create a histogram of the sample means, and calculate the mean and standard deviation of the sample means. To construct a histogram, follow the given steps:

1. Obtain a frequency (relative-frequency, percent) distribution of the data.

2. Draw a horizontal axis on which to place the bars and a vertical axis on which to display the

frequencies (relative frequencies, percents).

3. For each class, construct a vertical bar whose height equals the frequency (relative

frequency, percent) of that class.

4. Label the bars with the classes, the horizontal axis with the name of the variable, and the

vertical axis with “Frequency” (“Relative frequency,” “Percent”).

2. Theoretically, what are the mean, standard deviation, and distribution of all possible sample means

for a sample size of 5?

In a Singapore Edition of Business Times, diamond pricing was explored. The price of a diamond is based on the diamond’s weight, color, and clarity. A simple random sample of 18 one-half-carat diamonds had the following prices, in dollars:

Based on the above information, solve the following problems:

1. Apply the t-interval procedure to these data to find a 90% confidence interval for the mean price of

all one-half-carat diamonds. Interpret your result. (Note: x \$1964.7 and s \$206.5.)

Obtain a normal probability plot, a boxplot, a histogram, and a stem-and-leaf diagram of the data.

2. Based on your graphs from part (b), is it reasonable to apply the t-interval procedure as you did in
