14. A random sample of 225 SAT scores has a mean of 1500. Assume that SAT scores have a population
standard deviation of 300. Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean SAT scores.
(15 pts)
Refer to the following information for Questions 15, 16, and 17.
A box contains 5 chips. The chips are numbered 1 through 5. Otherwise, the chips are identical. From this box, we draw one chip at random, and record its value. We then put the chip back in the box. We repeat this process two more times, making three draws in all from this box.
15. How many elements are in the sample space of this experiment? (5 pts)
16. What is the probability that the three numbers drawn are all different? (10 pts)

Consider the following situation for Questions 20 and 21.
Mimi just started her tennis class three weeks ago. On Average, she is able to return 15% of her opponent’s serves. If her opponent serves 10 times, please answer the following questions.
20. Find the probability that she returns at most 2 of the 10 serves from her opponent. (10 pts)
21. How many serves is she expected to return? (5 pts)
22. Given a sample size of 64, with sample mean 730 and sample standard deviation 80, we perform
the following hypothesis test. (20 pts)
Ho ? = 750
H1 ? < 750
What is the appropriate distribution for performing this Hypothesis test?
Z distribution, t distribution, Chi Square distribution, Empirical Rule
What is the critical value of the test statistic at ?= 0.05 level?
What is the Pvalue for this Hypothesis Test?
What is your conclusion (decision) for this hypothesis test at ?= 0.05 level?
Refer to the following information for Questions 23, 24, and 25.

23. What is the probability that a randomly selected pecan tree is between 10 and 12 feet tall? (10 pts)
24. Find the 3^{rd} quartile of the pecan tree distribution. (5 pts)
25. If a random sample of 100 pecan trees is selected, what is the standard deviation of the sample mean? (5 pts)
26. Consider the hypothesis test given by
Ho ? = 530
H1 ? ? 530

women saying the earth is getting warmer is higher than the proportion of men saying the earth is
getting warmer?
