# A population of values has a normal distribution with \mu=182.5 and \sigma=49.4. You intend to draw a random sample of size n=15. Find the probability that a sample of size n=15 is randomly selected with a mean greater than 169.7. P(M > 169.7) =? Write your answers as numbers accurate to 4 decimal places. Question
Random variables A population of values has a normal distribution with $$\displaystyle\mu={182.5}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={49.4}$$. You intend to draw a random sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={15}$$.
Find the probability that a sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={15}$$ is randomly selected with a mean greater than 169.7.
$$\displaystyle{P}{\left({M}{>}{169.7}\right)}=$$? 2021-03-08
Step 1
Solution:
Let X be the value.
From the given information, X follows normal distribution with mean $$\displaystyle\mu={182.5}$$ and a standard deviation $$\displaystyle\sigma={49.4}$$. The sample size is 15.
Step 2
The probability that a sample of size $$\displaystyle{n}={15}$$ is randomly selected with a mean greater than 169.7 is
$$\displaystyle{P}{\left({M}{>}{169.7}\right)}={P}{\left({\frac{{{M}-\mu}}{{\frac{\sigma}{\sqrt{{{n}}}}}}}{>}{\frac{{{169.7}-{182.5}}}{{\frac{{49.4}}{\sqrt{{{15}}}}}}}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={P}{\left({Z}{>}{\frac{{\sqrt{{{15}}}{\left(-{12.8}\right)}}}{{{49.4}}}}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={P}{\left({Z}\succ{1.003}\right)}$$
$$\displaystyle={1}-{0.1579}={0.8421}{b}{e}{g}\in{\left\lbrace{b}{m}{a}{t}{r}{i}{x}\right\rbrace}{U}{\sin{{g}}}\ {t}{h}{e}\ {e}{x}{c}{e}{l}\ {f}{u}{n}{c}{t}{i}{o}{n}\backslash={N}{O}{R}{M}.{D}{I}{S}{T}{\left(-{1.003},{0},{1},{T}{R}{U}{E}\right)}{e}{n}{d}{\left\lbrace{b}{m}{a}{t}{r}{i}{x}\right\rbrace}$$
