The new mean would be 1, and the standard deviation would be 5. C. The new mean would be 0, and the standard deviation would be 1. D. The new mean would be 1, and the standard deviation would be 0. QUESTION 25 Let x stand for the percentage of an individual student's math test score. 100 students were sampled at a time. The population mean is 75 percent and the population standard deviation is 12 percent. What are the mean and standard deviation of the sampling distribution of sample means? A. mean = 75, standard deviation = 12 B. mean = 75, standard deviation = 1.2 C. mean = 7.5, standard deviation = 1.2 D. mean = 7.5, standard deviation = 12 QUESTION 26 Which of the following statements is NOT true? A. The Central Limit Theorem is applicable only for data sets comprising 30 or more samples. B. According to the Central Limit Theorem, the mean of the sampling distribution is equal to the population mean. C. For a large enough sample size, the Central Limit Theorem states that the sample means of repeated samples of a population are normally distributed. D. For the Central Limit Theorem to be true, you must have a large sample, the underlying population must be normally distributed, and the standard deviation should not be finite [Show More]
