H ADM 201 Prelim II Spring 2007 Question 1 B. 20 points. New regulations force a vendor of theme t-shirts to move her stand further away from a concert hall. The vendor wants to know how her new location compares with the old one. She records the number of t-shirts sold the first four nights at the new location; the hall is sold out during those nights: 116, 128, 132, 120 A) (8 points) Using the data above, compute AND INTERPRET a 95% confidence interval for the mean number of t-shirts sold per night at the new location. Assume all assumptions for inference are met. B) (8 points) Has the location change reduced the number of t-shirts sold from 130 per night, the mean at the old location? Define the parameter of interest, state the hypotheses in terms of the parameter of interest, compute the test statistic, a range for the p-value, and then your conclusions using α = 0.05.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
