Step 1
(a)
The spread is represented by standard deviation. If the standard deviations of the two or more normal distributions are same then the spread of the two or more normal distributions is same.
Here, it is observed that the standard deviations of the two normal distributions are same. Thus, it can be concluded that the spread of the two normal distributions is same.
Hence, the given statement is true.
Step 2
(b)
The parameter mean affects where the normal curve is centered. If the mean of the normal distributions are different, then the normal curve is centered at a different place.
Here, it is observed that the mean of the two normal distributions are different then the normal curve is centered at a different place.
Hence, the given statement is false.

Consider the accompanying data on flexural strength (MPa) for concrete beams of a certain type.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline 11.8 & 7.7 & 6.5 & 6 .8& 9.7 & 6.8 & 7.3 \\ \hline 7.9 & 9.7 & 8.7 & 8.1 & 8.5 & 6.3 & 7.0 \\ \hline 7.3 & 7.4 & 5.3 & 9.0 & 8.1 & 11.3 & 6.3 \\ \hline 7.2 & 7.7 & 7.8 & 11.6 & 10.7 & 7.0 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
a) Calculate a point estimate of the mean value of strength for the conceptual population of all beams manufactured in this fashion. \([Hint.\ ?x_{j}=219.5.]\) (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
MPa
State which estimator you used.

\(p?\)
\(\frac{s}{x}\)
\(s\)

b) Calculate a point estimate of the strength value that separates the weakest \(50\%\) of all such beams from the strongest \(50\%\).
MPa
State which estimator you used.
\(s\)

\(p?\)
\(\tilde{\chi}\)
\(\frac{s}{x}\)
c) Calculate a point estimate of the population standard deviation ?. \([Hint:\ ?x_{i}2 = 1859.53.]\) (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
MPa
Interpret this point estimate.
This estimate describes the linearity of the data.
This estimate describes the bias of the data.
This estimate describes the spread of the data.
This estimate describes the center of the data.
Which estimator did you use?

d) Calculate a point estimate of the proportion of all such beams whose flexural strength exceeds 10 MPa. [Hint: Think of an observation as a "success" if it exceeds 10.] (Round your answer to three decimal places.)
e) Calculate a point estimate of the population coefficient of variation \(\frac{?}{?}\). (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
State which estimator you used.
\(p?\)
