Explain the concept of probability (1 point). 13.    In a study of 420,095 cell phone users in Denmark, it was found that 135 developed cancer of the brain or nervous system. Estimate the probability that a randomly selected cell phone user will develop such a cancer. Is the result very different from the probability of 0.000340 that was found for the general population?

Explain the multiplication rule (1 point). 16.    In a survey of 1,012 people, researchers record whether there is a should not response to this question: Do you think the cloning of humans should or should not be allowed? Does this procedure result in a binomial distribution? Explain why or why not (1 point). 17.    In a study, 728 artificial hips are examined to determine whether they are acceptable, show excessive wear, or have manufacturing defects. Does this procedure result in a binomial distribution? Explain why or why not (1 point). 18.    Choose the procedure that will allow dental patients to be researched using a binomial distribution (0.5 point): 19.    Select the procedure that results in a Poisson distribution and explain (1 point). 20.    Choose the procedure that will allow fire ants to be researched using a Poisson distribution (0.5 point).

Week 3 Learning Team Life Science Article Analysis

Week 4 Individual Assignment Distribution, Hypothesis Testing, and Error Worksheet 1.    Describe a normal distribution in no more than 100 words (0.5 point). 2.    Construct a normal quantile plot in Statdisk, show the regression line, and paste the image into your response. Based on the normal quantile plot, does the data above appear to come from a population of Bigcone Douglas-fir tree ages that has a normal distribution? Explain (0.5 point). 3.    Calculate the sample mean and standard deviation for the age of Bigcone Douglas-fir trees based on the data above. If this accurately represents the population mean and standard deviation for the age of surviving Bigcone Douglas-fir trees in the burn area, what is the probability that a randomly selected surviving Bigcone Douglas-fir tree from the burn area will be 111 years old or less? Round to the nearest hundredth (0.5 point). 4.    Calculate the sample mean and standard deviation for the age of Bigcone Douglas-fir trees based on the data above. If this accurately represents the population mean and standard deviation for the age of surviving Bigcone Douglas-fir trees in the burn area, what is the probability that a randomly selected surviving Bigcone Douglas-fir tree from the burn area will be less than 0 years old? Round to the nearest hundredth. Based on this result, is it logical to assume that the population of age of surviving Bigcone Douglas-fir trees in the burn area is normally distributed with the parameters identified. Why or why not (0.5 point)? 5.    Describe a standard normal distribution in no more than 100 words (0.5 point). 6.    In a standard normal distribution, what is the probability of randomly selecting a value between -2.555 and -0.745? Round to four decimal places (0.5 point). 7.    Describe a uniform distribution in no more than 100 words (0.5 point). 8.    Describe the sampling distribution of the mean in no more than 100 words (1 point). 9.    Explain the central limit theorem in no more than 150 words (1 point). 10.    Describe the z distribution in no more than 100 words (0.5 point). 11.    Explain when the z distribution can be used in no more than 150 words (0.5 point). 12.    Describe the t distribution in no more than 100 words (0.5 point). 13.    Explain when the t distribution can be used in no more than 150 words (0.5 point). 14.    Describe the chi-square distribution in no more than 100 words (0.5 point). 15.    Explain when the chi-square distribution can be used in no more than 150 words (0.5 point). 16.    Determine the appropriate approach to conduct a hypothesis test for this claim: Fewer than 5% of patients experience negative treatment effects. Sample data: Of 500 randomly selected patients, 2.2% experience negative treatment effects (0.5 point). 17.    Determine the appropriate approach to conduct a hypothesis test for this claim: The systolic blood pressure of men who run at least five miles each week varies less than does the systolic blood pressure of all men. Sample data: n = 100 randomly selected men who run at least five miles each week, sample mean = 108.4, and s = 20.3 (0.5 point). 18.    Determine the appropriate approach to conduct a hypothesis test for this claim: The mean sodium content of a 30 g serving of snack crackers is 2,200 mg.
