Unformatted text preview: STA3032 Section 7347 Quiz 3 Solution 12 In sample of 80 tennis balls, the average weight was 59 . 32 g and standard deviation was 4 . 72 g . x = 59 . 32 s = 4 . 72 n = 80 1. What is a 90% confidence interval for the mean weight of tennis ball? ( 3 points ) (a) (58 . 45 , 60 . 19): with z / 2 = z . 1 / 2 = z . 05 = 1 . 645, x z / 2 s n = 59 . 32 1 . 645 4 . 72 80 = (58 . 45 , 60 . 19) . 2. How many tennis balls must be sampled so that a 95% confidence interval specifies the mean to within . 70 g ? ( 2 points ) (b) 175 z / 2 s n = 0 . 7 1 . 96 4 . 72 n = 0 . 7 n = 174 . 6627 175 3. Suppose that we conducted a survey of students and asked them how many hours they spent studying for one course per week. We then found the 95% confidence interval for the true mean number of hours studied per week for one course to be (2 . 3 , 5 . 4). Which of the following statements are true? ( 2 points ) (a) We are 95% confident that the true average number of hours stu dents spend studying for one course in one week is between 2 . 3 and 5 . 4 hours. (d) The probability that the true mean is in the 95% confidence interval is . 95 ....
