Nov 4 Normal Distribution

  1. 1. Normal Distribution  Data samples are often collected from very large populations.  the heights of G rade 12 studen ts in Manitoba the number of CDs sold monthly omo biles anc y of new aut th e life expect 1

  3. 3. 3
  4. 4. A histogram of the test results for a larger population of students • smooth curve is bell shaped.  • scores are clustered around the  mean score.  • symmetrical on either side of the  mean.  • very few students scored less than  45 or greater than 85.  4
  5. 5. 34% 34% .15% 13.5% 13.5% .15% 2.35% 2.35% Every normal curve has the following characteristics:  • bell shaped and extends in both directions.  • mean is at the centre of the curve and the curve is symmetrical about the mean.  • mean equals the median.  • scores tend to cluster around the middle with very few values more than three standard  deviations away from the mean on either side.  • 68% (34% + 34%) of all the data falls within one standard deviation of the mean.  • 17% (13.5% + 13.5%) of all data falls between one and two standard deviations of the  mean.  • 4.7% (2.35% + 2.35%) of all data falls between two and three standard deviations of the  mean.  5

  7. 7. Normal distributions come in different sizes and shapes. Depending on the mean and standard deviation, a normal curve may be flat and spread out or tall and skinny. 7
  8. 8. • Find the mean and standard deviation (Sx)  • What percent of data are approximately within      two standard deviations of the mean? 8

The personnel manager of a business employing 50 people finds  that the annual average employee salary is $36,000 with a standard  deviation of $8000. The data is normally distributed.  34% 34% .15% 13.5% 13.5% .15% 2.35% 2.35% • Find the percentage of employees who earn   more than $28,000 annually.  • Find the number of employees who earn less  than $20,000 or more than $44,000 annually.  11
