# Liberty MATH 114 Homework 4 Answers Complete Solutions

It saves a lot of time. You don’t need to solve questions. You would just need to put your values into excel. I put all mathematical formulas. They are the same questions with different values. So easy piece of cake if you just buy this excel solution.

### Question 1

Use the normal distribution of IQ scores, which has a mean of 90 and a standard deviation of 15, and the following table with the standard scores and percentiles for a normal distribution to find the indicated quantity.

Percentage of scores greater than 105 is

### Question 2

The scores on a psychology exam were normally distributed with a mean of 65 and a standard deviation of 5. A failing grade on the exam was anything 2 or more standard deviations below the mean. What was the cutoff for a failing score? Approximately what percentage of the students failed?

The cutoff for a failing score was

Approximately percent of the students failed

### Question 3

A set of data items is normally distributed with a mean of 180 and a standard deviation of 24. Convert 156 to a z-score.

### Question 4

Use the accompanying table of standard scores and their percentiles under the normal distribution to find the approximate standard score of the following data values. Then state the approximate number of standard deviations that the value lies above or below the mean.

a. A data value in the 30th percentile

b. A data value in the 60th percentile

c. A data value in the 17th percentile

a. The standard score for the 30th percentile is approximately

The 30th percentile lies approximately standard deviations the mean.

b. The standard score for the 60th percentile is approximately

The 60th percentile lies approximately standard deviations the mean.

c. The standard score for the 17th percentile is approximately

The 17th percentile lies approximately standard deviations the mean.

### Question 7

Exam results for 100 students are given below. For the given exam grades, briefly describe the shape and variation of the distribution.

median=85, mean=70, low score=27, high score=91

median=96, mean=90, low score=24, high score=98

### Question 8

The histogram to the right shows the times between eruptions of a geyser for a sample of 300 eruptions (which means 299 times between eruptions). Over the histogram, draw a smooth curve that captures its general features. Then classify the distribution according to its number of peaks and its symmetry or skewness.

Chose the correct answer below.
