  1. Answer true (T) or false (F). (True answers are highlighted in yellow)




  1. The total area under the bell curve equals one.



2. In a population of heights of 10,000 women, m = 63 inches and s = 5 inches. The number of


heights in the population that fall between 66 inches and 68 inches is 1156.



3. In a normal distribution, approximately 91.31% of the area under the curve is found to the


right of a point -1.36 standard deviations from the mean.



4. Approximately 92.5% of the area under the normal curve is located between the mean and


+/-1.78 standard deviations from the mean.



5. It is incorrect to say that the standard error of the mean is also the standard deviation of a


sampling distribution of means.



6. The most practical way to reduce standard error is to increase the sample size.



7. The standard error of a sampling distribution of means can be larger than the standard


deviation of the population upon which the sampling distribution is based.



8. With  remaining constant, increasing the sample size yields a smaller standard error.




9. As n increases, the width of a confidence interval for m increases, assuming s is constant.



10. Expanding confidence from 95% to 99% will increase the width of a confidence interval.



11. Given n = 100 and s^2 = 400, the estimate of the standard error of the mean is 2.



12. Given a sample with n = 100, Ho: m = 500, Ha: m ¹ 500, and  = 0.05, the null hypothesis


can be rejected if and only if z ³ 1.645 or z £ -1.645.



13. In problem 12 if x-bar = 505 and s = 20, the null hypothesis can be rejected with p = 0.0062.



14. Convicting an innocent defendant is a Type I Error.



  1. If n = 16, x-bar = 43 and s = 4, then a 98% confidence interval for  is (40.869, 45.131).



16. The table value of Z required to reject a null hypothesis at a given -level is larger for a


two-tailed test than for a one-tailed test.



17. According to the Central Limit Theorem, a distribution of sample means based on a sample of


n = 7 will approximate normality even if the data in the parent population are not normal.



18. When performing hypothesis tests or computing confidence intervals based on large samples,


it is necessary to assume that the data in the parent population(s) are distributed normally.



19. To estimate  within two units with 95% confidence and  = 10 requires n be at least 100.



20. If a two-tailed test assumes a 5% rejection region, then the total rejection region is 5%.



21. The p-value for a hypothesis test resulting in z < -2.74 is approximately 0.0310.



22. Allowing a guilty defendant to go free is a Type II Error.



23. The Student t-distribution approaches a normal distribution as the df get larger.



24. Statistical significance is the rejection of a null hypothesis at some alpha level.



25. Two samples of size 25 each yielding x-bar = 6.47, Sx = 1.14, y-bar = 6.17, and Sy =1.166


show a significant difference between means with a p-value of 0.3623.
