Exam 3: Chapters 5, 6, & 7

Module by: Susan Dean, Barbara Illowsky, Ph.D.. E-mail the authors

Summary: Practice final exam for use with Collaborative Statistics (col10522) by Barbara Illowsky and Susan Dean.

Questions 1 – 3 refer to the following:

Assume the amount of money seventh–grade students spend on food each day at school is exponentially distributed with an average of $2.50.

Exercise 1

Which graph best describes the distribution?

  • A. An exponentially decreasing function in the first quadrant. The function crosses the y-axis at 2.5 and nears the x-axis at 1/2.5
  • B. An exponentially decreasing function in the first quadrant. The function crosses the y-axis at 1/2.5 and nears the x-axis at 2.5
  • C. An exponentially decreasing function in the first quadrant. The function crosses the y-axis at 2.5 and nears the x-axis at 2.5
  • D. An exponentially decreasing function in the first quadrant. The function crosses the y-axis at 1/2.5 and nears the x-axis at 1/2.5

Solution

B

Exercise 2

Find the probability that a randomly selected seventh–grade student spends less than $4 a day on food.

  • A. 0.7981
  • B. 0.2019
  • C. 0.9999
  • D. 0.0001

Solution

A

Exercise 3

85% of the seventh–grade students spend more than what amount per day?

  • A. $2.12
  • B. $0.75
  • C. $4.74
  • D. $0.41

Solution

D

Questions 4 – 5 refer to the following:

The amount of time that intermediate algebra students at Leland High School spend doing their homework per day is normally distributed with a mean 1.5 hours and standard deviation 0.75 hours.

Exercise 4

If one student is randomly chosen, what is the probability that the student does intermediate algebra homework at least 2 hours per day?

  • A. 0.7475
  • B. 0.4259
  • C. 0.2525
  • D. 0.6784

Solution

C

Exercise 5

60% of these students spend at most how many hours doing their homework?

  • A. 1.69 hours
  • B. 1.31 hours
  • C. 1.5 hours
  • D. 0.2533 hours

Solution

A

Questions 6 – 7 refer to the following:

Llamas are excellent pack animals. It is known that the weight of supplies carried by llamas follows a normal distribution with a mean of 62.5 pounds and a standard deviation of 6 pounds.

Exercise 6

Find the probability that the weight of supplies carried by one randomly chosen llama is between 60 and 70 pounds.

  • A. 0.4441
  • B. 0.5559
  • C. 0.8944
  • D. 1

Solution

B

Exercise 7

The middle 50% of weights of supplies carried by a randomly chosen llama is between _____ and _____.

  • A. 0 and 62.5 pounds
  • B. 58.45 and 66.55 pounds
  • C. 56.5 and 68.5 pounds
  • D. There is not enough information given.

Solution

B

Exercise 8

Which of the following are true for the normal distribution?

  • I. More values fall close to the mean than fall far away from the mean.
  • II. The mean and standard deviation cannot be the same.
  • III. A change in µ causes the graph to shift to the left or right and changes the shape of the graph.
  • IV. A change in s causes a change in the shape of the normal curve.
  • A. I, IV
  • B. I, II, III, IV
  • C. I, II, III
  • D. III, IV

Solution

A

Questions 9 – 13 refer to the following:

The length of time junior high school students sleep per night follows an approximate uniform distribution from seven to eleven hours. Suppose we randomly select a junior high student.

Exercise 9

Find the probability that the randomly selected student sleeps less than 8 1/2 hours per night.

  • A. .2143
  • B. 0.7727
  • C. 0.4705
  • D. 0.375

Solution

D

Exercise 10

Find the probability that the randomly selected student sleeps eight to twelve hours per night.

  • A. 0
  • B. 1
  • C. 0.75
  • D. 0.25

Solution

C

Exercise 11

On average, how long does a junior high school student sleep per night?

  • A. .2143
  • B. 0.7727
  • C. 0.4705
  • D. 0.375

Solution

B

Exercise 12

On average, how long does a junior high school student sleep per night?

  • A. 9.6 hours
  • B. 6.5 hours
  • C. 7.8 hours
  • D. 8.4 hours

Solution

D

Exercise 13

We are interested in the probability that a randomly selected student sleeps less than eight hours, knowing that he/she sleeps less than ten. Which graph best depicts this situation?

  • A. A rectangular block reaching on the x-axis from 7 to 12, and on the y-axis from 0 to 1/5. The section from 7 to 8 on the x-axis is shaded in.
  • B. A rectangular block reaching on the x-axis from 7 to 12, and on the y-axis from 0 to 1/5. The section from 8 to 11 on the x-axis is shaded in.
  • C. A rectangular block reaching on the x-axis from 7 to 10, and on the y-axis from 0 to 1/3. The section from 7 to 8 on the x-axis is shaded in.
  • D. A rectangular block reaching on the x-axis from 7 to 10, and on the y-axis from 0 to 1/3. The section from 9 to 11 on the x-axis is shaded in.

Solution

C

Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
