Central limit theorem: Sample mean
A soft drink company has recently received customer complaints about its one-liter-sized soft drink products. Customers have been claiming that the one-liter-sized products contain less than one liter of soft drink. The company has decided to investigate the problem. According to the company records, when there is no malfunctioning in the beverage dispensing unit, the bottles contain liters of beverage on average, with a standard deviation of liters. A sample of bottles has been taken to be measured from the beverage dispensing lot. The mean amount of beverage in these bottles was liters. Find the probability of observing a sample mean of liters or less in a sample of bottles, if the beverage dispensing unit functions properly.
Carry your intermediate computations to at least four decimal places. Round your answer to at least three decimal places.

Central Bank

...Should the central bank play some role in bursting asset bubbles? This is a contentious issue that has been discussed for a long time. Some argue in favor of the view that central banks should burst bubbles. But, in their view, monetary policy should respond to asset bubbles in a cautious and moderate manner in order to avoid economic distortions. Some others argue against the role of central bank in bursting bubbles. They say bubbles generally arise out of some combination of irrational exuberance, jumps forward in technology and financial deregulation, for which the connection between monetary conditions and the rise of bubbles is tenuous. However, the central bank is at the centre point in this debate. The recent crash in the stock market in Bangladesh is also associated with some policies of the central bank. The aim of this article is to analyse the following two aspects: (i) whether the monetary policy response was appropriate to the rise and the recent collapse of the bubble, and (ii) whether the behaviour of financial institutions was optimal to the policy response. Commercial banks have been involved heavily in the stock market business in the last few years. Allowing merchant banking has exaggerated the situation. They became the key player in the stock market. Undoubtedly, any policies to control banks' exposure to the stock market could have significant impact on the capital market. Monetary easing during last two or more years (money supply was more than 22......

Central Park

...Central Park Central Park, located in New York City is a public park designed for people to enjoy sightseeing, tours, exercising, or just plain relaxing. It is an attraction sight for many tourists as well as New Yorkers. According to the book “Central Park, An American Masterpiece” by Sara Cedar Miller, the eight hundred and forty three acres of land began construction in 1857 and won the title of being a National Historic Landmark since 1962. The park which is located in the center of Manhattan, starts from 59th street and extends all the way to 110th street. Based on Miller’s assertions, Central Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, after he won a park design contest. Olmsted also received help from Calvert Vaux, who was an architect. When the first landscaped public park in the United States was initially created, it was an attraction for wealthy people; however, after the park’s decline, and post adding more attraction sites, the park became less elite. As a result, it became a place for everyone from tourists to residents all over New York. Frederick Law Olmsted is best known for creating Manhattan's Central Park with the help of architecture Calvert Vaux, according to Scott Kirkwood, author of “The Lay of the Land.” Kirkwood claims that Central Park gave Olmsted and Vaux an opportunity to use landscape design for a social purpose. He states, “The two believed that there is no beauty without utility and based their work on the "noble motive," which drove their...

...The Role of Central Banks We operate today in modern advanced economies which rely on a system of fiat money. The agency that controls this system is known as a central bank. A central bank has the power to increase and decrease the amount of currency made available in an economy. Furthermore, the set of actions that make this possible is called the monetary policy and there are different tools that central banks use to operate a stable economy. The two agencies which control the European monetary policy are called the European Central Bank and the Bank of England. In US, the central bank is called the Federal Reserve. This essay will provide fact and information to what extent central banks control our economy. Initially, central banks are important institutions of our advanced modern economy. Changes in the money supply can affect our economy when it comes to rate of inflation, unemployment, prices and production of goods. Because of the link between the amount of money in an economy and the inflation rate, central banks will act as a price guardian. Their policy is to keep the inflation rate as close to the inflation target as possible. For that reason, central banks are able to increase and decrease the available currency in an economy. Therefore, central banks should be seen as a guardian of inflation stability, rather than a guardian of price stability. There are several tools that central banks use to fulfil their role as a guardian of inflation stability to......

Just like the public grounds of London and Paris, it urged that New York needed a comparable facility to establish its international reputation. “In 1853 the state legislature authorized the City of New York to use the power of eminent domain to acquire more than 700 acres of land in the center of Manhattan.”1 During the nineteenth century the construction of Central Park was one of the most massive public works with over 20,000 workers on site. Through the years it has gone over countless facelifts and popularity the remarkable landmark has some breathtaking monuments and historic places in New York City.

Central America

...Explain why labor unions in many Central American countries have developed more slowly than those in the United States. Find an article in a professional journal that includes correlation and regression analysis similar to the Case Study on pages 143 and 550. Write a brief report describing the correlation and regression analysis and its role in the context of the article. Correlation and regression analysis are related in the sense that both deal with relationships among variables. Yes, due to violence against members and supports of labor unions in Central America, the development has suffered. Violence as serious as death has occurred as result of many people who support the unions and decide to protest. The use of violence, threats and even murder over labor protests that can land people in prison in the US are looked at as common crimes in many areas of Central America. In recent years the murderers of union members have gotten their cases overturned, never to pay for their crimes. Violence is used as a way of getting the message out that unions will not and should not be supported and the non-supporters will not stand for labor unions. Non-supporters want power over their employees and if unions were to be accepted, they would lose that power. As a result many organizers are afraid for their lives and hesitate to move forward with implanting labor unions and its laws. Also, the violence has made it difficult to attempt to organize as it occasionally ends in......

Central Tendencies

...Andrea Roberson PSY 351 Monstrous Methods for Teaching Central Tendency Concepts This article discusses a new creative approach to introducing central tendencies to students. It involves incorporating gaming techniques and concepts to make learning the new material fun and interactive. Math can be rather difficult for students of all ages. However, with this learning tactic, one may over look the difficulties and focus on the entertaining aspect. The “game” begins with the teaching of basic knowledge of central tendencies – mean, median, and mode. From there, students are introduced to the game and given a story about evil monsters and their means of survival. The story occurs in a dungeon and all the exits are blocked with monsters. There are three exits, each marked with the central tendency that describes the size of the monsters standing between that door and freedom. They are given an opportunity to choose from three doors marked mean, median, and mode with numerical values. There is no particular order the doors should be marked for each game. For example, door number one may be marked as “mode = 75” one game and marked as median = 7 for the next. Behind the door marked with “the mode” are many small monsters and a few giant monsters. Unfortunately, students who choose this door are typically eaten. It helps the students understand that the numeric value of the mode describes the different variety of creatures behind the door and which kind is most abundant......

Central Bank

...Academic supervisor: Dr. Abdlsalam Alhamad To begin with, Dr. Adel Sharkas claimed and addressed his case and point of view of the central bank of Jordan and its achievements and accomplishment. He also spoke about his personal life and how he became the person he is now. As an audience member, I was significantly inspired and ideas of what I can do to grow as a person flood into my thoughts. Background Moreover, Jordan set out preparations to establish the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ) in the late 1950s. The Law of the CBJ was enacted in 1959. Thereafter, its operational procedures were commenced on the first day of October 1964. The CBJ succeeded the Jordan Currency Board which had been established in 1950. The capital of the CBJ, which is totally owned by the government, was increased gradually, from one million to 18 million Jordanian Dinars. The CBJ enjoys the status of an independent and autonomous corporate body, although its capital is owned entirely by the government. Objective The law establishing the CBJ stipulates that "the objectives of the Central Bank shall be to maintain monetary stability in the Kingdom, to ensure the convertibility of the Jordanian Dinar, and to promote the sustained growth of the Kingdom's economy in accordance with the general economic policy of the government." The most important objective of the central bank is to achieve the stability of the exchange rate is crucial for continuous economic growth; also the control of the......

Central America

...the internal political and cultural tensions in the Central America region from the colonial period to the present day? Describe these turning points in terms of the people who were involved in creating change and the controversies of the times. The history of Central America is considered to be a colorful one but rather complicated and even tragic because a lot of historical events took place and influenced greatly the political, economic and cultural development of the Central America region. (Perez-Brignoli, 1989) It is known that Central America has seen wars and dictators, foreign interventions and economic crises. (Booth & Walker, 1999) To my mind, the three turning points that have created the internal political and cultural tensions in the Central America region from the colonial period to the present day are the following ones: • Colonization of Central America by Spain in 1523. • When Central America declared Independence in 1821 and on June 1, 1823 five countries of Central America were united. • Revolution in 1944-1954 in Guatemala. The first turning point can be related to the period of colonization. The local population tried to stand against the Spaniards but Indian tribes had no chances to win. All the cities were captured by the colonizers. Some cities were burned and great deals of local people were killed. The Spaniards had control over the whole territory of Guatemala and other countries of Central America. The life of local population changed......
