- 1. Today’s Agenda Attendance / Announcements Sections 10.4b Have a good Holiday!
- 2. Exam Schedule Exam 5 (Ch 10) Thur 12/5 Final Exam (All) Thur 12/12 1 hour, 50 mins
- 3. The Normal Curve
- 4. The Normal Curve
- 5. The Normal Curve
- 6. The Normal Curve
- 7. The Normal Curve Z-scores:
- 8. The Normal Curve The following are synonymous when it comes to the normal curve: • Find the area under the curve … • Find the percentage of the population … • Find the probability that …
- 9. The Normal Curve
- 10. Using a Z-Table to find probabilities Note: Our Z-table only gives area to the left (or probabilities less than z)
- 11. The Normal Curve Find Probability that z < 0.97 P(z Find area under the curve to the left of z = 0.97 0.97) Z-scores: -3 -2 -1 0 1 0.97 2 3
- 12. Using a Z-Table to find probabilities Find Probability that z < 0.97 Since z > 0, use positive side
- 13. The Normal Curve Find Probability that z < -2.91 Z-scores: -3 -2.91 -2 Find area under the curve to the left of z = -2.91 -1 0 1 2 3
- 14. Using a Z-Table to find probabilities Find Probability that z < -2.91 Since z < 0, use negative side
- 15. Using a Z-Table to find probabilities • Not all Z-Tables are alike!
- 16. Using a Z-Table to find probabilities • But we can still use our z-table to find areas to the right (probability greater than), as well as areas between two values (probability between two values).
- 17. The Normal Curve Find Probability that z > 0.75 Z-scores: -3 -2 Find area under the curve to the right of z = 0.75 -1 0 1 0.75 2 3
- 18. Finding Area to the Right • Two Methods –Using the Complement of 1 –Using Symmetry
- 19. Complement Method Find Probability that z > 0.75 Z-scores: -3 -2 Find area under the curve to the right of z = 0.75 -1 0 1 0.75 2 3
- 20. Complement Method Use fact that area under entire curve is 1. And that we can find area to the left Z-scores: -3 -2 Find area under the curve to the right of z = 0.75 -1 0 1 0.75 2 3
- 21. Complement Method Use fact that area under entire curve is 1. And that we can find area to the left Z-scores: -3 -2 Find area under the curve to the right of z = 0.75 -1 0 1 0.75 2 3
- 22. The Normal Curve Find Probability that z > 0.75 Z-scores: -3 -2 Find area under the curve to the right of z = 0.75 -1 0 1 0.75 2 3
- 23. Symmetry Method
- 24. Symmetry Method Use symmetry of the normal curve to find area Z-scores: -3 -2 Find area under the curve to the right of z = 0.75 1 -1 0 - 0.75 0.75 2 3
- 25. Finding Area between two values • Just use difference of the two areas
- 26. Difference of Area Find Probability that -1.25 < z < 0.75 Z-scores: -3 Find area under the curve between -1.25 and 0.75 -2 -1 -1.25 0 1 0.75 2 3
- 27. Finding Probabilities of Normal Distributions 1. For data that is normally distributed, find the percentage of data items that are: a) below z = 0.6 b) above z = –1.8 c) between z = –2 and –0.5
- 28. Finding Probabilities of Normal Distributions 2. Given a data set that is normally distributed, find the following probabilities: a) P(0.32 ≤ z ≤ 3.18) b) P(z ≥ 0.98)
- 29. Solving Applications of Normal Distributions Before solving real world applications of data that is normally distributed, we need to first calculate any appropriate z-scores based on the data. This is called normalizing the data.
- 30. Solving Applications of Normal Distributions Systolic blood pressure readings are normally distributed with a mean of 121 and a standard deviation of 15. After converting each reading to its z-score, find the percentage of people with the following blood pressure readings: a) below 142 b) above 130 c)between 142 and 154
- 31. Solving Applications of Normal Distributions A machine produces bolts with an average diameter of 7 mm and a standard deviation of 0.25 mm. What is the probability that a bolt will have a diameter greater than 7.1 mm? Assume the distribution is normal.
- 32. Solving Applications of Normal Distributions The placement test for a college has scores that are normally distributed with = 500 and = 100. If the college accepts only the top 10% of examinees, what is the cutoff score on the test for admission? (hint: you’ll need to use the table first, and work backwards)
- 33. Classwork / Homework • 10.4 Worksheet • Page 638 • 1 – 4, 9 – 19 odd, 25 – 35 odd
