9. TOSSING A COIN: Using the Normal to approximate the Binomial (NOT the complex formulas) with a What is the probability of (binomial) data getting 17 to 21 heads out of 36 tosses? THE RANGE FOR WHICH WE DETERMINE THE Z VALUES FOR THE LOW AND HIGH ENDS IS?

(a) 17 to 21 (b) 17.5 to 19.5 (c) 16 to 22 (d) 16.5 to 21.5

(a) z-Tables and t-Tables (b) t-Tables and z-Tables (c) neither, we can’t calculate a confidence interval.

15. Using the t-Tables with an α of 5% the Confidence Interval would have limits at:

(a) 5% and 95% (b) 0.025 and 0.975 (c) 1% and 99% (d) none of these

16. Calculate the 99% Confidence Interval for 41 sample data points with a mean (m) of 25 and a standard deviation (s) of 5
