using empirical rule, 95% falls within 2 sd from the mean 31 - 27.4 = 3.6 3.6/2 = 1.8 sd = 1.8

6-35 A recent study by an environmental watchdog determined that the amount of contaminants in Minnesota lakes (in parts per million) it has a normal distribution with a mean of 64 ppm and variance of 17.6. Assume that 35 lakes are randomly selected and sampled. Find the probability that the sample average of the amount of contaminants is a) Greater than 72 ppm. b) Between 64 and 72 ppm. c) Exactly 64 ppm. d) Greater than 94 ppm.
Exercise 1 An ejidal association wishes to determine the distribution for the three different crops that it can plant for the next season on its available 900 hectares. Information on the total available and how many resources are required for each hectare of cultivation is shown in the following tables: Total available resource Water 15,000 m3 Fertilizer 5,000 kg Labor 125 day laborers Requirements per cultivated hectare Corn Soybeans Wheat Water 15 25 20 Fertilizer 5 8 7 Labor** 1/8 1/5 1/4 *The data in fraction means that with one day laborer it will be possible to care for 8, 5 and 4 hectares respectively. * Sales of crops 1 and 3, according to information from the Department of Agriculture, are guaranteed and exceed the capacity of the cooperative. However, soybeans must be limited to a maximum of 150 hectares. On the other hand, the profits for each hectare of crop obtained are estimated at: $7,500 for corn, $8,500 for soybeans and $8,000 for wheat. The objectives are to determine: • How many hectares of each crop must be allocated so that the profit is maximum. R= • The estimated profits for the ejidal cooperative in the next growing season. R=

Which statement best describes the key changes in perspectives on inclusion? An inclusive program must consider the unique experiences of every child and family as well as the child's strengths and needs. There is a shift in thinking about individual programs as "inclusive programs" to thinking about inclusion as something that reflects the cultural influence of the family. There is a greater emphasis on barriers to full participation and the acknowledgement that all children are unique and must be fully and meaningfully engaged in a program. In an inclusive program all participants are accepted by their peers and other members of the community.
