Physical activity of obese young adults. In a study on the physical activity of young adults, pediatric researchers measured overall physical activity as the total number of registered movements (counts) over a period of time and then computed the number of counts per minute (cpm) for each subject (International Journal of Obesity, Jan. 2007). The study revealed that the overall physical activity of obese young adults has a mean of μ = 320 cpm μ = 320   cpm and a standard deviation of σ = 100 c p m . σ = 100 c p m . (In comparison, the mean for young adults of normal weight is 540 cpm.) In a random sample of n = 100 n = 100 obese young adults, consider the sample mean counts per minute, ¯ x x ‾ . Describe the sampling distribution of ¯ x x ‾ . What is the probability that the mean overall physical activity level of the sample is between 300 and 310 cpm? What is the probability that the mean overall physical activity level of the sample is greater than 360 cpm?

As a data scientist of a company, you want to analyze the following data collected by your company which relates the advertising expenditure A in thousands of dollars to total sales S in thousands of dollars. The following table shows this relationship

 Advertising Expenditure (A) Total Sales (S) 18.6 312 18.8 322 18.8 333 18.8 317 19 301 19 320 19.2 305

Using Advertising expenditure (A) as the domain and Total Sales (S) as the range, the data is not a function because the value 18.8 and 19 appear in the domain more than once with a different corresponding value of the range each time.

--Interpret the slope and y-intercept of this equation.

--Express this equation as a function S of A and find its domain.

--Predict the sales if the advertising expenditure is $25000. In: Math ##### A prominent university conducted a survey on the effect of part-time work on student grade point...

Let X and Y be independent Exponential random variables with common mean 1.

Their joint pdf is f(x,y) = exp (-x-y) for x > 0 and y > 0 , f(x, y ) = 0 otherwise. (See "Independence" on page 349)

Let U = min(X, Y) and V = max (X, Y).

The joint pdf of U and V is f(u, v) = 2 exp (-u-v) for 0 < u < v < infinity, f(u, v ) = 0 otherwise. WORDS: f(u, v ) is twice f(x, y) above the diagonal in the first quadrant, otherwise f(u, v ) is zero.

(a). Use the "Marginals" formula on page 349 to get the marginal pdf f(u) of U from joint pdf f(u, v) HINT: You should know the answer before you plug into the formula.

(b) Use the "Marginals" formula on page 349 to get the marginal pdf f(v) of V from joint pdf f(u, v) HINT: You found f(v) in a previous HW by finding the CDF of V. You can also figure out the answer by thinking about two independent light bulbs and adding the probabilities of the two ways that V can fall into a tiny interval dv.

(c) Find the conditional pdf of V, given that U = 2. (See page 411). HINT: You can figure out what the answer has to be by thinking about two independent light bulbs and remembering the memoryless property.

(d) Find P( V > 3 | U= 2 ). (See bottom of page 411. Do the appropriate integral, but you should know what the answer will be.)

(e) Find the conditional pdf of U, given that V = 1. (See page 411).

(f) Find P ( U < 0.5 | V = 1).

HINT: You should know ahead of time whether the answer is > or < or = 1/2.
