The **z-score** for a score of 92 is higher than the **z-score** of a score of 688, therefore, the score that is *better* is: __b. A score of 92__

__Recall:__

- In comparing scores or determining how relatively far scores are from the mean in a distribution, we can transform the score using the
**z-score.**

**Z-score**=*(raw score - mean)/standard deviation.*

**Z-score** for a score of 92:

raw score = 92

**mean **= 71

**standard deviation **= 15

**Z-score** = (92 - 71)/15 = **1.4**

**Z-score** for a score of 688:

raw score = 688

**mean** = 493

**standard deviation** = 150

**Z-score** = (688 - 493)/150 = **1.3**

Therefore, the **z-score** for a score of 92 is higher than the **z-score** of a score of 688, therefore, the score that is *better* is: __b. A score of 92__

**Answer:**

b. A score of 92

**Step-by-step explanation:**

The z-score measures how many standard deviations a score is above or below the mean.

It is given by the following formula:

In which is the score, is the mean and is the standard deviation.

**In this problem, we have that:**

The best score is the one with a higher z-score. If the z-score is the same for both, then they have the same relative position.

**A score of 92 on a test with a mean of 71 and a standard deviation of 15.**

Here we have

So

**A score of 688 on a test with a mean of 493 and a standard deviation of 150**

Here we have

The score of 92 has a higher Z-score, so it is better.

**The correct answer is:**

b. A score of 92

Question

An aptitude test has a mean score of 80 and a standard deviation of 5. The population of scores is normally distributed. What proportion of tests has scores over 90?

Solution 1

**Answer:**

2.28% of tests has scores over 90.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**Problems of normally distributed samples are solved using the z-score formula.**

In a set with mean and standard deviation , the zscore of a measure X is given by:

The Z-score measures how many standard deviations the measure is from the mean. After finding the Z-score, we look at the z-score table and find the p-value associated with this z-score. This p-value is the probability that the value of the measure is smaller than X, that is, the percentile of X. Subtracting 1 by the pvalue, we get the probability that the value of the measure is greater than X.

**In this problem, we have that:**

**What proportion of tests has scores over 90?**

This proportion is 1 subtracted by the pvalue of Z when X = 90. So

has a pvalue of 0.9772.

So 1-0.9772 = 0.0228 = 2.28% of tests has scores over 90.

Question

The maturity value of a 50-day loan of $550 is $560. What is the annual simple interest rate (in percent) on this loan? Round to the nearest tenth of a percent. Use 360 days in 1 year.

Solution 1

**Answer:**

13.1%

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Principal value of the loan = $550

Maturity Value of the loan = $560

Let the rate of simple interest = R

Time = 50 days = years

Simple Interest = Maturity Value - Principal Value = $560 - $550 = $10

But Simple Interest =

Substituting,

Question

A delivery of 50 transistors contains 40 good ones and 10 defectives. In a test five of them are checked. How many possibilities are there to have 3 good ones and 2 defective transistors in the test set?

Solution 1

**Answer:**

0.2048

**Step-by-step explanation:**

p(good transistor) = 40/50 = 4/5

p(defective transistor) = 10/50 = 1/5

the probability of having 3 good ones and 2 defective transistors in the test set :

= 5C3Ã—(4Ã·5)Â³Ã—(1Ã·5)Â²

= 0.2048

Solution 2

**Answer:**

0.2048

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Question

You are standing next to a really big circular lake. You want to measure the diameter of the lake, but you don't want to have to swim across with a measuring tape! You decide to walk around the perimeter of the lake and
measure its circumference, and find that it's 4007 m.

Solution 1

**Answer:**

1 275.5 m

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Measure of the circumference = 4007

on the other hand ,the Measure of the circumference = (diameter)Ã—Ï€

then

the measure of the diameter = 4 007Ã·Ï€ = 1 275.46771393845 m

Question

A certain delivery service offers both express and standard delivery. 75% of parcels are sent by standard delivery, and 25% are sent by express. Of those sent standard, 80% arrive the next day, and of those sent express, 95% arrive the next day. A record of parcel delivery is chosen at random from the company's files.What is the probability that the parcel was shipped expressed and arrived the next day?

Solution 1

**Answer:**

**The probability that the parcel was shipped expressed and arrived the next day = 0.2375 .**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

We are given that a certain delivery service offers both express and standard delivery.

Let **Proportion of parcels sent by standard delivery, P(****) = 0.75**

** Â Â Â Proportion of parcels sent by express delivery, P(****) = 0.25**

Let *event B = Parcel arriving the next day*

Also, Probability of parcel arriving the next day given it was sent through standard delivery, P(B/) = 0.8

Probability of parcel arriving the next day given it was sent through express delivery, P(B/) = 0.95

**Now, Probability that the parcel was shipped expressed and arrived the next day = P(****) * P(B/****) = 0.25 * 0.95 = 0.2375 .**

Question

Suppose you are the manager of a firm. The accounting department has provided costâ€‹ estimates, and the sales department salesâ€‹ estimates, on a new product. Analyze the data they giveâ€‹ you, determine what it will take to breakâ€‹ even, and decide whether to go ahead with production of the new product. The product has a production cost function â€‹C(x)equals75xplus3 comma 350 and a revenue function â€‹R(x)equals100x.

Solution 1

**Answer:**

*If more than 134 articles are produced and sold, the firm will have positive profits and shoule start production*

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Cost, Revenue, and Profit Function

The cost function C(x) is given by

where x is the number of produced products.

The revenue function is

With both equations, we can know the profit function as

For the firm to have positive profits, it has to produce x articles with the condition

Or, equivalently

Solving for x

Thus

This means that if more than 134 articles are produced and sold, the firm will have positive profits and shoule start production

Question

A test has 6 multiple choice questions, each with 4 alternatives. What is the probability of guessing 5 or more questions correctly?

Solution 1

**Answer:**

0.0009765625â€¬

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Each multiple choice question has 4 equally likely alternatives.

Hence, probability of guessing the right answer for 1 question is = 0.25

Hence, probability of guessing the wrong answer is = 0.75

The probability of guessing 5 or more questions correctly = probability of guessing 5 questions correctly & 1 question wrong + probability of guessing 6 questions correctly

=

= 0.000732421875 + 0.000244140625

= 0.0009765625â€¬

Question

A fair die is rolled 10 times. What is the probability that an odd number (1, 3, or 5) will occur fewer than 3 times?

Solution 1

**Answer:**

The probability that an odd number rolls of a die for less than 3 times is **0.054**.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

The sample space of rolling a fair die is, S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

The odd numbers are, {1, 3, and 5}.

The probability that an odd number occurs is:

The die was rolled *n* = 10 times.

Let *X* = number of rolls in which an odd number occurs.

The random variable

The probability distribution of binomial is:

Compute the probability that an odd number will occur less than 3 times as follows:

Thus, the probability that an odd number rolls of a die for less than 3 times is **0.054**.

Question

"The weight of a product is normally distributed with a mean of four ounces and a variance of .25 squared ounces. What is the probability that a randomly selected unit from a recently manufactured batch weighs no more than 3.5 ounces?

Solution 1

Answer:

Step-by-step explanation:

Since the weight of the products are normally distributed, we would apply the formula for normal distribution which is expressed as

z = (x - Âµ)/Ïƒ

Where

x = weight of the product.

Âµ = mean weight

Ïƒ = standard deviation

From the information given,

Âµ = 4 ounces

Variance = 0.25Â²

Ïƒ = âˆšvariance = âˆš0.25Â² = 0.25

We want to find the probability that a randomly selected unit from a recently manufactured batch weighs no more than 3.5 ounces. It is expressed as

P(x â‰¤ 3.5)

For x = 3.5,

z = (3.5 - 4)/0.25 = - 2

Looking at the normal distribution table, the probability corresponding to the z score is 0.0228
