6. Let x represent the dollar amount spent on supermarket impulse buying in a 10-minute (unplanned) shopping interval. Based on a newspaper article, the mean of the x distribution is about \$20 and the estimated standard deviation is about \$9. Transcribed Image Text: (a) Consider a random sample of n = 40 customers, each of whom has 10 minutes of unplanned shopping time in a supermarket.
From the central limit theorem, what can you say about the probability distribution of x, the average amount spent by these
customers due to impulse buying? What are the mean and standard deviation of the x distribution?
O The sampling distribution of x is approximately normal with mean 4, = 20 and standard error o; = \$9.
The sampling distribution of x is not normal.
The sampling distribution of x is approximately normal with mean u, = 20 and standard error o, = \$1.42.
O The sampling distribution of x is approximately normal with mean u, = 20 and standard error o, = \$0.23.

O It is necessary to assume that x has a large distribution.
O It is necessary to assume that x has an approximately normal distribution.
It is not necessary to make any assumption about the x distribution because n is large.
O It is not necessary to make any assumption about the x distribution because u is large.
(b) What is the probability that x is between \$17 and \$23? (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
(c) Let us assume that x has a distribution that is approximately normal. What is the probability that x is between \$17 and \$23?
(d) In part (b), we used x, the average amount spent, computed for 40 customers. In part (c), we used x, the amount spent by
only one customer. The answers to parts (b) and (c) are very different. Why would this happen?
O The sample size is smaller for the x distribution than it is for the x distribution.
The standard deviation is smaller for the x distribution than it is for the x distribution.
The x distribution is approximately normal while the x distribution is not normal.
O The mean is larger for the x distribution than it is for the x distribution.
The standard deviation is larger for the x distribution than it is for the x distribution.
In this example, x is a much more predictable or reliable statistic than x. Consider that almost all marketing strategies and
sales pitches are designed for the average customer and not the individual customer. How does the central limit theorem tell us
that the average customer is much more predictable than the individual customer?
The central limit theorem tells us that the standard deviation of the sample mean is much smaller than the population
standard deviation. Thus, the average customer is more predictable than the individual customer.
The central limit theorem tells us that small sample sizes have small standard deviations on average. Thus, the average
customer is more predictable than the individual customer.

Select the type of service you need: writing, calculations, or programming. We’ve created an intuitive order form that tells you what information to enter and where, so make sure to fill out each required field. Also, make your requirements as specific as possible. Don’t rush! Take your time and explain everything in detail how it works.

##### Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.

##### Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?

You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.

##### Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?

No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.

##### When will my custom paper be done?

While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.

Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.

Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.
