Therefore, the confidence interval is 75.8 ± (1.96)(1.188) = 75.8 ± 2.26 = 73.54 to 78.06 lbs. At 95% confidence, z = 2.33. Therefore, the confidence interval is 75.8 ± (2.33)(1.188) = 75.8 ± 2.77 = 73.03 to 78.57 lbs. At 99% confidence, z = 2.58. Therefore, the confidence interval is 75.8 ± (2.58)(1.188) = 75.8 ± 3.07 = 72.73 to 78.87 lbs. 2. 28 10 / = x s = 1.89 At 90% confidence and 27 df , t = 1.703. Therefore, the confidence interval is 45 ± 1.703(1.89) = 45 ± 3.22 = 41.78 to 48.22 minutes. 3. a. 25 001 / . = x s = .0002 The sample size is less than 30, so we should use the t distribution.

2 At 95% confidence and 24 df , t = 2.064. Therefore, the confidence interval is .003 ± 2.064(.0002) = .003 ± .0004 = .0026 to .0034 in. b. 30 01 / . = x s = .00183 The sample size is 30, so we can use the normal distribution. At 95% confidence, z = 1.96. Therefore, the confidence interval is .011 ± 1.96(.00183) = .011 ± .0036 = .0074 to .0146 in. 4. Critical value: z = –2.33 Test statistic: 69 110 410 500 475 2 250 11 840 10 . / , , , = = z = –3.70 The value of the test statistic lies in the rejection region. Therefore, reject the null hypothesis. 5.
