# 7.5 Practice: central limit theorem (modified r. bloom)

 Page 1 / 1
This module contains practice problems for the Central Limit Theorem from Collaborative Statistics by Susan Dean and Dr. Barbara Illowsky. The problems relating to Central Limit Theorem for averages have not been changed in this module. The problems relating to Central Limit Theorem for sums have been removed from this module.

## Student learning outcomes

• The student will explore the properties of data through the Central Limit Theorem.

## Given

Yoonie is a personnel manager in a large corporation. Each month she must review 16 of the employees. From past experience, she has found that the reviews take her approximately 4 hours each to do with a population standard deviation of 1.2 hours. Let $X$ be the random variable representing the time it takes her to complete one review. Assume $X$ is normally distributed. Let $\overline{X}$ be the random variable representing the average time to complete the 16 reviews. Let $\mathrm{\Sigma X}$ be the total time it takes Yoonie to complete all of the month’s reviews.

## Distribution

Complete the distributions.

1. $X$ ~
2. $\overline{X}$ ~

## Graphing probability

For each problem below:

• Sketch the graph. Label and scale the horizontal axis. Shade the region corresponding to the probability.
• Calculate the value.

Find the probability that one review will take Yoonie from 3.5 to 4.25 hours.

• $P\left($ ________ $\begin{array}{} ________ $\right)=$ _______

• 3.5, 4.25, 0.2441

Find the probability that the average of a month’s reviews will take Yoonie from 3.5 to 4.25 hrs.

• $P\text{( )}=$ _______

• 0.7499
• When calculating the standard deviation for the mean using the Central Limit Theorem in this problem, the sample size is n = 16, the number of reviews she completes in a month.

Find the 95th percentile for the average time to complete one month’s reviews.

• The 95th Percentile=

• 4.49 hours

## Discussion question

what does nano mean?
nano basically means 10^(-9). nanometer is a unit to measure length.
Bharti
do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?
absolutely yes
Daniel
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now
it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well

for teaching engĺish at school how nano technology help us
Anassong
Do somebody tell me a best nano engineering book for beginners?
what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
Tarell
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
Virgil
is Bucky paper clear?
CYNTHIA
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
s.
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
SUYASH
What is lattice structure?
of graphene you mean?
Ebrahim
or in general
Ebrahim
in general
s.
Graphene has a hexagonal structure

On having this app for quite a bit time, Haven't realised there's a chat room in it.
Cied
what is biological synthesis of nanoparticles
what's the easiest and fastest way to the synthesize AgNP?
China
Cied
types of nano material
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
Porter
many many of nanotubes

what is the k.e before it land
Yasmin
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
Cesar
I'm interested in nanotube
Uday
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.
what is nano technology
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
how to synthesize TiO2 nanoparticles by chemical methods
