    The following data give the number of pets owned for a population of 4

    families

    Family A B C D

    Number of Pets Owned:2 1 4 3

    Samples of size 2 will be drawn at random from the population

    (without replacement).

    母體的平均數為2.5,變異數為1.25,標準差為1.118034。

    (1) Find the mean of the sampling distribution of the sample means.

    有4*3=12種可能抽樣。樣本平均數的均值為2.5。

    (2) Find the standard deviation of the sampling distribution of the sample means.

    樣本平均數的標準差為[√(4-2)/(4-1)] * 1.118034/√2 = 0.6455。

    (3) Find the sampling distribution of X , and use it directly to recalculate the mean and the standard deviation of X .

    P(X_bar=1.5) = 1/6

    P(X_bar=2) = 1/6

    P(X_bar=2.5) = 2/6

    P(X_bar=3) = 1/6

    P(X_bar=3.5) = 1/6

    mean = 1.5*(1/6)+2*(1/6)+2.5*(2/6)+3*(1/6)+3.5*(1/6) = 2.5

    variance = (1.5-2.5)2 *(1/6) + (2-2.5)2 *(1/6) + (2.5-2.5)2 *(2/6) + (3-2.5)2 *(1/6) + (3.5-2.5)2 *(1/6) = 0.4167

    standard deviation = √0.4167 = 0.6455

    Same answers as above in (1) and (2)!
