Given:
random variable z follows the standard normal distributions.
a)\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({z}{>}{1.9}\right)}={1}−{P}{\left({z}\le{1.9}\right)}\)
\(P(z>1.9) = 1−0.9713\)
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({z}{>}{1.9}\right)}={0.0287}\approx{0.03}\)
b)\(P(-2\leq z\leq1.2)=P(z\leq1.2)-P(z\leq2)\)
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left(−{2}\le{z}\le{1.2}\right)}={0.8849}−{0.0228}\)
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left(−{2}\le{z}\le{1.2}\right)}={0.8621}\approx{0.86}\)
c)\(P(z\geq0.2)=1-P(z\leq-0.2)\)
\(P(z\geq0.2) = 1−0.4207\)
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({z}\geq{0.2}\right)}={0.5793}\approx{0.58}\)

Distribution Suppose we have a binomial experiment in which success is defined to be a particular quality or attribute that interests us.
(a) Suppose \(n = 100\) and \(p= 0.23\). Can we safely approximate the \(\hat{p}\) distribution by a normal distribution? Why?
Compute \(\mu_{\hat{p}}\) and \(\sigma_{\hat{p}}\).

Suppose you take independent random samples from populations with means \(\displaystyle\mu{1}{\quad\text{and}\quad}\mu{2}\) and standard deviations \(\displaystyle\sigma{1}{\quad\text{and}\quad}\sigma{2}\). Furthermore, assume either that (i) both populations have normal distributions, or (ii) the sample sizes (\(n_1 \text{ and } n_2\)) are large. If \(X_1 \text{ and } X_2\) are the random sample means, then how does the quantity
\(\displaystyle\frac{{{\left(\overline{{{x}_{{1}}}}-\overline{{{x}_{{2}}}}\right)}-{\left(\mu_{{1}}-\mu_{{2}}\right)}}}{{\sqrt{{\frac{{{\sigma_{{1}}^{{2}}}}}{{{n}_{{1}}}}+\frac{{{\sigma_{{2}}^{{2}}}}}{{{n}_{{2}}}}}}}}\)
Give the name of the distribution and any parameters needed to describe it.

Assume that all the distributions are normal, average is always taken to be the arithmetic mean \(\bar{x}\) or \(\mu\). A college Physical Education Department offered an Advanced First Air course last semester. The scores on the comprehensive final exam were normally distributed, and the the z scores for some of the students are shown below:

Robert, 1.10

Juan, 1.70

Susan, -2.00

Joel, 0.00

Jan, -0.80
