Can anyone confirm these answers from wednesday?

Page 36

#3)

BINOMDIST = .13788

NORMDIST = .13807

#4)

NORMDIST = .31739

#5)

P([Z<=94)= .739 P([Z<=86)= .310 subtract the two and get = .429 Page 41 #1) Bin(900,.5) 1-P([X<=474])= .05117 ...so we are able to conclude median temp is greater than 98.6 #2) Bin(260,.1) 1-P([X<=37])= .01157 ...No, I do not have reason to doubt the claim because the probability of finding 38 left hand golfers is extremely small. If it was above .05, then it could be possible and give doubt to the 10% claim.

Friday’s Homework

Problems 6,7 pg. 36

#6)

BINOMDIST= .3001

Laplace-DeMoivre= -.5178

NORMDIST= .3022989

#7)

– Find the smallest positive integer K such

that P([S5>=k])< =.10? k | k-1 | 1-BINOMDIST -------------------------- 5 | 4 | .03125 <---- answer is 5 4 | 3 | .1875 3 | 2 | .5 2 | 1 | .8125 1 | 0 | .96875 0 | | #8) - Find he largest value of p? p | BINOMDIST --------------- .7 | .85 .6 | .95 <---- answer is .6 .5 | .989 .4 | .998 Problems 4,5 pg. 43 #4) Laplace= -16.938 NORMDIST= .17233e-64 #5) Patient | Upright | Down | + = lower rate ----------------------------------------- 1 | 142 | 154 | + 2 | 100 | 106 | + 3 | 112 | 110 | - 4 | 92 | 100 | + 5 | 104 | 112 | + 6 | 100 | 101 | + 7 | 108 | 120 | + 8 | 94 | 90 | - 9 | 104 | 105 | + 10 | 98 | 114 | + ------------------------------------------ 10 plays, p(+)=1/2 # +'s is Bin(10,.05) P([X>=8])

= 1-P([X<=7]) BINOMDIST= .9999... 1-BINOMDIST= 1.6058e-09 So, upright is better.

#5 should have a probability of .5 NOT .05.
