Q:

Mary purchased \( 4 \) tires by mail order. She paid \( \$ 61.10 \) per tire plus \( \$ 5.40 \) per tire for shipping and handling. There is no sales tax, because the tires were purchased out of state. She also had to pay \( \$ 8.11 \) per tire for mounting and balancing. At a local store, Mary's total for the \( 4 \) tires with mounting and balancing would be \( \$ 328 \) plus \( 6 \% \) sales tax. How much did Mary save by purchasing the tires through the mail?

Q:

Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), statisticians Traci Clemons and Marcello Pagano found that the birth weights of babies in the United States are not symmetric ("Are babies normal?" The American Statistician, N \( 1999,53 : 4 \) ). However, they also found that when infants born outside of the "typical" \( 37 - 43 \) weeks and infant born to mothers with a history of diabetes are excluded, the birth weights of the remaining infants do follow a Normal model with mean \( \mu = 3432 g \) and standard deviation \( \sigma = 482 g \) .

Compute the z-score of an infant who weighs \( 3607 g \) . (Round your answer to two decimal places.) 

Approximately what fraction of infants would you expect to have birth weights between \( 2960 g \) and \( 3990 g \) ?

Q:

A farmer uses the equation below to determine what she will receive after selling her wheat crop. 

       \(p = 0.33 b u - s\)    

In the equation \( p = \) total payment, \( b = \) total bushels of wheat harvested, \( u = \) the unit price (price per bushel), and \( s = \) fee for storing wheat. The farmer had the wheat planted and harvested by farmhands, so she will receive payment on \( 33 \% \) of the total bushels harvested. 

 

The total payment is \( \$ 45,605 \) , the price per unit is \( \$ 4.66 \) , and the storage fee is \( \$ 2467 \) . The farmer wishes to calculate the total bushels harvested. The steps to find \( b \) are shown below. 

(1) \( 45,605 = 0.33 ( b ) ( 4.66 ) - 2,467 \) 

(2) \( 48,072 = 0.33 ( b ) ( 4.66 ) \) 

(3) \( 15,864 = ( b ) ( 4.66 ) \) 

(4) \( b \approx 3,404\)

  The solution is not valid because both sides of the equation should be divided by \( 0.33 \) in step (2). 

  The solution is valid because all steps to solve for \( b \) are correct. 

  The solution is not valid because \( 15,864 \) minus \( 4.66 \) is \( 15.859 .34 \) in step (4). 

  The solution is not valid because \( \frac { 48,072 } { 0.33 } \) is \( 145,672.73 \) in step (3).

Q:

Miranda estimates that it will take \( 1.75 \) gallons to put one coat of paint on her bedroom walls. One gallon of paint costs \( \$ 25.50 \) . For \( \$ 75 \) , her friend has offered to help paint. Miranda creates the following inequality to show the minimum amount of money needed to paint her room: 

\(b \geq 25.50 p + 75.00 , \) where \( b = \) money to complete the job and 

\( p = \) cans of paint. Miranda substitutes \( \$ 150 \) for \( b \) and solves for \( p \) . She determines that \( \$ 150 \) will pay for her friend's help and \( 2 \) gallons of paint. 

(1) \( 150 \geq 25.50 p + 75.00 \) 

(2) \( 150.00 - 75.00 \geq 25.50 p \) 

(3) \( \frac { 75.00 } { 25.50 } \geq p \) 

(4) \( p \leq 2.9\) 

Which statement describes the validity of Miranda's solution? 

The solution is not valid because both sides of the equation should be divided by \( 25.50 \) in step (2). 

The solution is valid because all steps to solve for \( p \) are correct. 

The solution is not valid because \( 75.00 \) minus \( 25.50 \) is \( 24.50 \) in step (4).

Q:

In \( 2000 \) , when the federal budget showed a large surplus, the Pew Research Center asked two questions of random samples of adults. Both questions stated that Social Security would be "fixed." Here are the uses suggested for the remaining surplus: 

 

Should the money be used for a tax cut, or should it be used to fund new government programs? 

 

Should the money be used for a tax cut, or should it be spent on programs for education, the environment, health care, crime-fighting and military defense? 

 

Which wording pulls respondents toward a tax cut? 

    The second wording pulls respondents toward a tax cut because it makes the tax cut sound better.     The first wording biases respondents towards a tax cut because it lists the possible uses of the surplus.
