Salaries for teachers in a particular elementary school district
are normally distributed with a mean of $44,000 and a

standard deviation of $6,500. We randomly survey ten teachers from
that district.

1.Find the probability that the teachers earn a total of over
$400,000

2.If we surveyed 70 teachers instead of ten, graphically, how would that change the distribution in part d?

3.If each of the 70 teachers received a $3,000 raise,
graphically, how would that change the distribution in part
b?

1.0.0262

2. Probability increases as sample size increases. So sampling 70 teachers instead of ten would cause the distribution to be more spread out. It would be a more symmetrical normal curve.

3. If every teacher received a $3,000 raise, the distribution of X would shift to the right by $3,000. In other words, it would have a mean of $47,000.

Salaries for teachers in a particular elementary school district
are normally distributed with a mean of $44,000 and a standard
deviation of $6,500. We randomly survey ten teachers from that
district. Find the 85th percentile for the sum of the sampled
teacher's salaries to 2 decimal places.

Salaries for teachers in a particular elementary school district
have a mean of $44,000 and a standard deviation of $6,500. We
randomly survey 36 teachers from that district.
Why can we say the sampling distribution of mean salaries for
teachers in this district is approximately normal?
Find the probability that the mean salary is less than
$43,000.
Find the probability that the mean salary is between $45,000
and $47,000.

A researcher claims that the mean of the salaries of elementary
school teachers is greater than the mean of the salaries of
secondary school teachers in a large school district. The mean of
the salaries of a random sample of 26 elementary school teachers is
$48,250 and the sample standard deviation is $3900. The mean of the
salaries of 24 randomly selected secondary school teachers is
$45,630 with a sample standard deviation of $5530. At ? = 0.05, can
it...

A study was conducted to estimate the difference in the mean
salaries of elementary school teachers from two neighboring states.
A sample of 10 teachers from the Indiana had a mean salary of
$28,900 with a standard deviation of $2300. A sample of 14 teachers
from Michigan had a mean salary of $30,300 with a standard
deviation of $2100. Determine a 95% confidence interval for the
difference between the mean salary in Indiana and Michigan.(Assume
population variances are different.)
*Include...

A study was conducted to determine if the salaries of elementary
school teachers from two neighboring districts were equal. A sample
of 15 teachers from each district was randomly selected. The mean
from the first district was $28,900 with a standard deviation of
$2300. The mean from the second district was $30,300 with a
standard deviation of $2100. Assume the samples are random,
independent, and come from populations that are normally
distributed. Construct a 95% confidence interval for μ1 -...

In one school district, there are 89 elementary school (K-5) teachers, of which 18 are male (or male-identifying). In a neighboring school district, there are 102 elementary teachers, of which 17 are male. A policy researcher would like to calculate the 99% confidence interval for the difference in proportions of male teachers.To keep the signs consistent for this problem, we will calculate all differences as p1−p2. That is, start with the percentage from the first school district and then subtract...
