Week 5 Assignment Understanding Normal Distribution

Question John averages 58 words per minute on a typing test
with a standard deviation of 11 words per minute. Suppose John’s
words per minute on a typing test are normally distributed. Let X=
the number of words per minute on a typing test. Then X∼N(58,11).

If necessary, round to three decimal places.

Suppose John types 72 words per minute in a typing test on
Sunday. The z-score when x = 72 is $$ . The mean is $$

This z-score tells you that x = 72 is $$ standard
deviations to the right of the mean.

Question Rosetta averages 148 points per bowling game with a
standard deviation of 14 points. Suppose Rosetta’s points per
bowling game are normally distributed. Let X= the number of points
per bowling game. Then X∼N(148,14).

If necessary, round to three decimal places.

Suppose Rosetta scores 110 points in the game on Thursday.
The z-score when x=110 is $$−2.714. The mean is $$148.

This z-score tells you that x=110 is $$2.714 standard
deviations to the left of the mean.

Question The graph below shows the graphs of several normal
distributions, labeled A, B, and C, on the same axis. Determine
which normal distribution has the smallest mean.

A figure consists of three curves along a horizontal
axis, labeled Upper A, Upper B and Upper C. Curve Upper A is
farthest to the left, curve Upper B is farthest to the right, and
curve Upper C is tall and skinny.

B has the larger mean.

The means of A and B are equal.

A has the larger standard deviation.

B has the larger standard deviation.

The standard deviations of A and B are equal.

Question Given the plot of normal distributions A and B

B has the larger standard deviation.

The standard deviations of A and B are equal.

Question Given the plot of normal distributions A and B
below, which of the following statements is true? Select all
correct answers.

A normal bell curve labeled Upper A and a normal elongated
curve labeled Upper B are centered at the same point. Normal curve
Upper B is narrower and above normal curve Upper A.

A has the larger mean.

B has the larger mean.

The means of A and B are
equal.

A has the larger standard deviation.

B has the larger standard deviation.

The standard deviations of A and B are equal.

Question Suppose X∼N(12.5,1.5), and x=11. Find and interpret
the z-score of the standardized normal random variable.

The z-score when x=11 is $$ . The mean is $$.

This z-score tells you that x=11 is $$ standard
deviation(s) to the ___ of the mean.

Question Suppose X∼N(16.5,2), and x=18.5. Find and interpret
the z-score of the standardized normal random variable.

The z-score when x=18.5 is $$. The mean is $$
