Unformatted text preview: 8-1 CHAPTER 8 Section 8-28-1a.) The confidence level for nxnx/14.2/14.2+-is determined by the by the value of z0 which is 2.14. From Table II, we find (2.14) = P(Z<2.14) = 0.9838 and the confidence level is 100(1-.032354) = 96.76%. b.) The confidence level for nxnx/49.2/49.2+-is determined by the by the value of z0 which is 2.14. From Table II, we find (2.49) = P(Z<2.49) = 0.9936 and the confidence level is is 100(1-.012774) = 98.72%. c.) The confidence level for nxnx/85.1/85.1+-is determined by the by the value of z0 which is 2.14. From Table II, we find (1.85) = P(Z<1.85) = 0.9678 and the confidence level is 93.56%. 8-2 a.) A z= 2.33 would give result in a 98% two-sided confidence interval. b.) A z= 1.29 would give result in a 80% two-sided confidence interval. c.) A z= 1.15 would give result in a 75% two-sided confidence interval. 8-3 a.) A z= 1.29 would give result in a 90% one-sided confidence interval. b.) A z= 1.65 would give result in a 95% one-sided confidence interval. c.) A z= 2.33 would give result in a 99% one-sided confidence interval. 8-4a.) 95% CI for 96.1,100020,10,====zxn4.10126.987)10/20(96.11000)10/20(96.11000//+-+-nzxnzxb.) .95% CI for 96.1,100020,25,====zxn8.10072.992)25/20(96.11000)25/20(96.11000//+-+-nzxnzxc.) 99% CI for 58.2,100020,10,====zxn3.10167.983)10/20(58.21000)10/20(58.21000//+-+-nzxnzxd.) 99% CI for 58.2,100020,25,====zxn3.10107.989)25/20(58.21000)25/20(58.21000//+-+-nzxnzx8-2 8-5 Find n for the length of the 95% CI to be 40.

Interval (1): 7.32159.3124was calculated with 95% Confidence because it has a smaller half-length, and therefore a smaller confidence interval. The 99% confidence level will make the interval larger. 8-7 a.) The 99% CI on the mean calcium concentration would be longer. b). No, that is not the correct interpretation of a confidence interval. The probability that is between 0.49 and 0.82 is either 0 or 1. c). Yes, this is the correct interpretation of a confidence interval. The upper and lower limits of the confidence limits are random variables. 8-8 95% Two-sided CI on the breaking strength of yarn: where x = 98 , = 2 , n=9 and z0.025= 1.96 3.997.969/)2(96.1989/)2(96.198//025.025.+-+-nzxnzx8-9 95% Two-sided CI on the true mean yield: where x = 90.480 , = 3 , n=5 and z0.025= 1.96 11.9385.875/)3(96.1480.905/)3(96.1480.90//025.025....
