(a) The mean age at death is 15 years and the standard deviation is 7 years. What percentage of the dinosaurs' ages were within 1 standard deviation of the mean? (Answer as a whole number.)
%
(b) What percentage of the dinosaurs' ages were within 2 standard deviations of the mean? (Answer as a whole number.)
%
(c) The units of standard deviation s are years. What would be the units of variance s^{2}?
yearssquared years no units
(d) The shape of the stemplot is fairly normal, with only a bit of leftskewness. What would be the shape of the distribution for age at death of humans?
symmetric but not normalfairly normal leftskewedrightskewed
(e) If paleontologists want to use the mean age, 15 years, to estimate the mean age at death of all dinosaurs, what is their main concern?
data productionstatistical inference displaying and summarizing dataprobability
(f) Based on the information from this sample, which of these would be the most plausible value for mean age at death of all dinosaurs?
10 years14 years 18 years
Waist circumference of women in their twenties follows a somewhat normal distribution with mean 32 inches, standard deviation 5 inches.
(a) Use the 689599.7 Rule to sketch a histogram for a large data set of women's waist circumferences, marking off the circumferences that are within 1, 2, and 3 standard deviations of the mean. What would be the seven key values marked off on the histogram from left to right? (Answer as whole numbers.)

(c) Approximately what is the percentage of waists that are larger than 42 inches? (Round your answer to one decimal place.)

(d) The smallest 16% of waists are less than how many inches? (Answer as a whole number.)

(e) More precisely, the mean for women in their twenties is 32.2, and their median is 30.6. The mean for women in their eighties is 36.7, and their median is 36.4. Which age group has more skewness in the distribution of waist circumferences?

(f) What type of skewness is it?

Suppose that weights of 1yearold male children are fairly normally distributed with mean 27 pounds, standard deviation 2 pounds.
(a) If we use the 689599.7 Rule to sketch a curve for this distribution, marking off the weights that are within 1, 2, and 3 standard deviations of the mean, report the 7 values that should be marked off in the sketch, in increasing order. (Answer as whole numbers.)

(b) Find the zscore for a male 1yearold who weights 23 pounds. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
(c) Find the weight (to the nearest pound) for a 1yearold male whose zscore is
−1.81.

(d) What percentage of male 1yearolds weigh less than 23 pounds? (Round your answer to one decimal place.)

It is reported that the proportion of college students at large public institutions who seek help at counseling centers is 0.10.
(a) If we test
H_{0}: p = 0.10 vs. H_{a}: p ≠ 0.10,
which of these sample proportions would provide the most evidence against the null hypothesis, in favor of the alternative?
0.050.11 0.13
(b) If we test
H_{0}: p = 0.10 vs. H_{a}: p ≠ 0.10,
which of these sample proportions would provide the least evidence against the null hypothesis?
0.050.11 0.13
(c) If we test
H_{0}: p = 0.10 vs. H_{a}: p > 0.10,
which of these sample proportions would provide the most evidence against the null hypothesis, in favor of the alternative?
0.050.11 0.13
(d) If we test
H_{0}: p = 0.10 vs. H_{a}: p > 0.10,
which of these sample proportions would provide the least evidence against the null hypothesis?
0.050.11 0.13
In a national poll of 1,706 Americans aged 45 and older conducted in 2004 for the AARP, 1,228 of respondents agreed with the statement, "Adults should be allowed to legally use marijuana for medical purposes if a physician recommends it." We want to use software to test if a majority (more than 0.5) of all Americans aged 45 and older support legalization of marijuana for medical purposes.
(a) First identify
H_{0} and H_{a}.
H_{0}: μ = 0.72 vs. H_{a}: μ > 0.72
H_{0}: μ = 0.50 vs. H_{a}: μ > 0.50
H_{0}: μ = 0.72 vs. H_{a}: μ ≠ 0.72
H_{0}: μ = 0.50 vs. H_{a}: μ ≠ 0.50
H_{0}: p = 0.72 vs. H_{a}: p > 0.72
H_{0}: p = 0.50 vs. H_{a}: p > 0.50
H_{0}: p = 0.72 vs. H_{a}: p ≠ 0.72
H_{0}: p = 0.50 vs. H_{a}: p ≠ 0.50
H_{0}: pÌ‚ = 0.72 vs. H_{a}: pÌ‚ > 0.72
H_{0}: pÌ‚ = 0.50 vs. H_{a}: pÌ‚ > 0.50
H_{0}: pÌ‚ = 0.72 vs. H_{a}: pÌ‚ ≠ 0.72
H_{0}: pÌ‚ = 0.50 vs. H_{a}: pÌ‚ ≠ 0.50
(b) According to the output, what is the sample proportion pÌ‚? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
(c) According to the output, what is the standardized sample proportion z? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
(d) According to the output, what is the Pvalue? (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
(e) Does the poll provide convincing evidence that a majority of all Americans aged 45 and older support legalization of marijuana for medical purposes?
Yes, with strong evidence.Yes, but just barely. No, not quite.No, not at all.
