Homework Help: statistics

Posted by dinhgde on Monday, March 14, 2011 at 3:51pm.

studies indicate that drinking water supplied by some old lead-lined city piping systems may contain harmful levels of lead. an important study of the Boston water supply system showed that the distribution of lead content readings for individual water specimens had a mean and standard deviation of approximately .033 milligrams per liter (mg/l) and .10mg/l,respectively.
(a)explain why you believe this distribution is or is not normally distributed.
(b) because the researchers were concerned about the shape of the distribution in part a, they calculated the average daily lead levels at 40 different locations on each of 23 randomly selected days. what can you say about the shape of the distribution of the average daily lead levels from which the sample of 23 days was taken?
(c) what are the mean and standard deviation of the distribution of average lead levels in part b?
