MULTIPLE CHOICE. Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. Determine whether the Normal model may be used to describe the distribution of the sample proportions. If the Normal model may be used, list the conditions and explain why each is satisfied. If Normal model may not be used, explain which condition is not satisfied. 1) A candy company claims that 25% of the jelly beans in its spring mix are pink. Suppose that the 1) candies are packaged at random in small bags containing about 300 jelly beans. A class of students opens several bags, counts the various colors of jelly beans, and calculates the proportion that are pink in each bag. Is it appropriate to use a Normal model to describe the distribution of the proportion of pink jelly beans? A) A Normal model is not appropriate because the population distribution is not Normal. B) A Normal model is not appropriate because the randomization condition is not satisfied: the 300 jelly beans in the bag are not a simple random sample and cannot be considered representative of all jelly beans. C) A Normal model is appropriate: Randomization condition is satisfied: the 300 jelly beans in the bag are selected at random and can be considered representative of all jelly beans 10% condition is satisfied: the sample size, 300, is less than 10% of the population of all jelly beans. success/failure condition is satisfied: np = 75 and nq = 225 are both greater than 10 D) A Normal model is not appropriate because the success/failure condition is not satisfied: np = 75 and nq = 225 neither of which is less than 10 E) A Normal model is not appropriate because the 10% condition is not satisfied: the sample size, 300, is larger than 10% of the population of all jelly beans.

Answer the question. 2) In a large class, the professor has each person toss a coin 200 times and calculate the proportion of his or her tosses that were tails.

The college has a total of 850 students. The researcher selects 200 students at random and determines the mean test score, x, for the students in the sample. May the Normal model be used to describe the sampling distribution of the mean, x? A) No, Normal model may not be used. 10% condition is not satisfied : the 200 students in the sample represent more than 10% of students at the college. This means that the independence assumption will not be satisfied. B) Yes, Normal model may be used. Randomization condition: The students were selected at random Independence assumption: It is reasonable to think that scores of randomly selected students are mutually independent. Large enough sample condition: a sample of 200 is certainly large enough, whatever the distribution of the scores in the original population 10% condition is satisfied since the 200 students represent more than 10% of students at the college. C) No, Normal model may not be used. Large enough sample condition is not satisfied: since the original population is skewed to the left, 200 is not a large enough sample D) No, Normal model may not be used since scores for students at the college are not normally distributed E) No, Normal model may not be used. Randomization condition is not satisfied since the 200 students in the sample may not be representative of all students at the college.
