An engineer reports that in a sample of 50 microdrills drilling a low-carbon alloy steel, the average lifetime (expressed as the number of holes drilled before failure) was 12.68 with a standard deviation of 6.83. (a) Find an approximate 95% condence interval for the mean lifetime of microdrills under these conditions. (b) Based on the same data, another engineer previously reported an approximate condence interval of (11.09, 14.27), but neglected to specify the level. What is the level implied by this condence interval. (c) Find an approximate 99% upper condence bound for the mean lifetime of microdrills. 10. Devore (7e) Text: 7.32 (p. 276)...
