This exercise requires the use of a graphing calculator or computer programmed to do numerical integration. The normal distribution curve, which models the distributions of data in a wide range of applications, is given by the function p(x)=12πσe(xμ)2/(2σ2) where π=3.14159265... and sigma and mu are constants called the standard deviation and the mean, respectively. Its graph(for σ=1 and μ=2)is shown in the figure. With σ=5andμ=0, approximate 0+ p(x) dx.

The article “Modeling Sediment and Water Column Interactions for Hydrophobic Pollutants” (Water Research, 1984: 1169-1174) suggests the uniform distribution on the interval (7.5, 20) as a model for depth (cm) of the bioturbation layer in sediment in a certain region. a. What are the mean and variance of depth? b. What is the cdf of depth? c. What is the probability that observed depth is at most 10? Between 10 and 15? d. What is the probability that the observed depth is within 1 standard deviation of the mean value? Within 2 standard deviations?

Aurora is planning to participate in an event at her school's field day that requires her to complete tasks at various stations in the fastest time possible. To prepare for the event, she is practicing and keeping track of her time to complete each station. The x-coordinate is the station number, and the y-coordinate is the time in minutes since the start of the race that she completed the task. (1,3),(2,6),(3,12),(4,24)
Part A: Is this data modeling an algebraic sequence or a geometric sequence? Explain your answer.
Part B: Use a recursive formula to determine the time she will complete station 5.
Part C: Use an explicit formula to find the time she will complete the 9th station.

Nurses wondered if birth weights of babies are going up. They knew that the average bith weight ofa baby last year was 7.6 pounds. A random sample of 15 weights of babies atthe hospital where the nurses work gave an average birth weight of 7.9 pounds. Nurses felt thatthe birth Weights this year ware normally distributed. Which ofthe following is true about the distribution of sample means?
Choose the correct answer below.
A. Even though the sample size is less than 30, the distribution of sample means will be normal because the population data follow a normal distribution.
B. The distribution of sample means will be normal regardless of the shape of the data in the population.
C. Since the sample size is less than 30, the population data cannot be normally distributed. Therefore, the distribution of sample means will not be normally distributed.
D. The distribution of sample means will not be normal even though the population data followed a normal distribution because the sample size is less than 30.
