(1 pt) The following random sample was se- lected from a normal distribution: 5 18 11 4 3 9 15 2 1 7 (a) Construct a 90% confidence interval for the population mean μ . μ (b) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean μ . μ Correct Answers: 4.1953139507171 10.8046860492829 3.42183306334819 11.5781669366518 Problem 2. 2. (1 pt) One of the few negative side effects of quitting smoking is weight gain. Suppose that the weight gain in the 12 months following a cessation in smoking is normally distributed with a standard deviation of 6 pounds. To estimate the mean weight gain, a random sample of 60 quitters was drawn and the sample mean was found to be 28 pounds. Determine the 96% confi- dence interval estimate of the mean 12-month weight gain for all quitters. Note: For each confidence interval, enter your answer in the form (Lower limit, Upper limit). You must include the paren- theses and the comma between the confidence limits. Confidence Interval = Correct Answers: (26.4091720905453,29.5908279094547) Problem 3. 3. (1 pt) (a) A random sample of elementary school children in New York state is selected to estimate the proportion p of school children who have received a medical ex- amination during the past year. The survey found that x = 474 children were examined during the past year. Construct the 95% confidence interval estimate of the population proportion p of school children who have received a medical examination in the past year if the sample size was n = 600 . < p < (b) Which of the following is the correct interpretation for your answer in part (a)?

    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.
