Find the probability that a randomly selected adult has IQ > 70c. Find P30, which is the IQ separating the bottom 30% from the top 70% 3. a. When would the mean grade in a class on a final exam be considered a statistic?b. When would it be considered a parameter?c.. Define bias in terms of expected value.b.Is it possible for a statistic to be unbiased yet very imprecise? Can it be accurate butbiased?4. a. Why is a 99% confidence interval wider than a 95% confidence interval?b. When you construct a 95% confidence interval, what are you 95% confident about?5. My parents lived in Florida and wanted to know the probability of winning the FloridaFantasy 5 if they bought one ticket. They had to pick the five winning numbers from 136. Each randomly selected number is different and order doesn’t matter. What is theProbability of their winning? 6.
