population mean?
1m
b) Write general equation for Confidence interval for difference between
2 sample mean?
1m
c) Write general equation for Confidence interval for difference between sample proportion
and population proportion?
1m
d) Write general equation for Confidence interval for difference between
2 sample proportion?
1m
e) What is central limit theorem
2m
f) Suppose it is known that the heights of a certain population of individuals are
approximately normally distributed with a mean of 70 inches and a standard deviation of
3 inches. What is the probability that a person picked up at random from this group will
be between 65 and 74 inches tall?
g) Less than 70 inches?
2m
h) More than 72 inches?
2m
i) Evans conducted a study to determine if the prevalence and nature of podiatric problems
In elderly diabetic patients are different from those found in similarly aged group of
non diabetic patients. Subjects who were seen in out patients clinics were 70 to 90
years old. Among the investigators findings were the following statistics w.r.t scores
on the measurement of deep tendon reflexes:
Sample
n
mean
SD
Non Diabetic
79
2.1
1.1
Diabetic
74
1.6
1.2
Construct a 90% confidence interval for difference between populations means 2m
j) 95% confidence interval for difference between populations means
2m
k) 98% confidence interval for difference between populations means
2m
l) 99% confidence interval for difference between populations means
2m
Question no 2
a) Suppose it is known that 25% of certain populations are immune to a disease. If a
random sample of size 15 is selected from this population, what is the probability
that it will contain exactly 5 immune persons.?
6m
b) Suppose that the ages at time of onset of a certain disease are approximately normally
distributed with a mean of 11.5 years and a SD of 3 years. A child has just come down
with the disease .Find the probability that the child is:
i) Between ages of 7.5 to 13.5 years
ii) Over 9 years of age

iii) Under 12

6m

c) If the mean number of serious accidents per year in a large factory is 5, find the
Probability that in the current year there will be
i)
Exactly 7 accidents
ii)
10 or more accidents
iii)
Fewer than 5 accidents
8m
Question no 3
a) Suppose it is known that in a certain large human populations cranial length is
approximately normally distributed with a mean of 185.6 mm and a SD of 12.7mm
What is the probability that a random sample of size 10 from this population
will have a mean
i) Greater than 190
ii) less than 187
iii) Between 185 and 195
6m
b) Suppose that a population consists of the following values: 1,3,5,7,9. Construct
the sampling distribution of means based on the sample size of 2 selected with
and without replacement respectively.

6m

c) A sample of 1000 members has a mean 3.4 inches and SD 2.61 inches. Can we conclude
that the sample is drawn from a large population of mean 3.25 inches and SD 2.61 inches
by 5% LOS? If the population is normal and mean is unknown find 95,99 % limits for
true population mean.?
8m
Question no 4
a) A simple sample of heights of 6500 English men has a mean of 170cms with a SD of
6.4cms and 1500 American men has a mean of 172cms with a SD of 6.3cms. Do the
Data indicate that the Americans are taller than English by 5% LOS?
6m
b) In a survey of injection drug users in a large city, researchers found that 20 out of
420 were HIV positive. We wish to know that if we can conclude that fewer than
6 % of the injection drug users in the samples population are HIV positive.
6m
c)
In a study of obesity the following results were obtained from samples of males
and females between ages of 20 and 75:
sex
size of sample
number of observations overweight
Males
150
21
Females
200
48
Can we conclude from these data that in the sampled populations there is significant
Difference in the proportion who are overweight?
