224 Confidence Interval Estimation CHAPTER 8: CONFIDENCE INTERVAL ESTIMATION 1. The width of a confidence interval estimate for a proportion will be a) narrower for 99% confidence than for 95% confidence. b) wider for a sample size of 100 than for a sample size of 50. c) narrower for 90% confidence than for 95% confidence. d) narrower when the sample proportion is 0.50 than when the sample proportion is 0.20. ANSWER: c TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Moderate KEYWORDS: confidence interval, proportion, properties, width 2. When determining the sample size for a proportion for a given level of confidence and sampling error, the closer to 0.50 that p is estimated to be, the sample size required __________. 3. A 99% confidence interval estimate can be interpreted to mean that 4. If you were constructing a 99% confidence interval of the population mean based on a sample of n =25 where the standard deviation of the sample s = 0.05, the critical value of t will be 5. Which of the following is not true about the Student’s t distribution? a) It has more area in the tails and less in the center than does the normal distribution.

225 Confidence Interval Estimation b) It is used to construct confidence intervals for the population mean when the population standard deviation is known. c) It is bell shaped and symmetrical. d) As the number of degrees of freedom increases, the t distribution approaches the normal distribution. ANSWER: b TYPE: MC DIFFICULTY: Easy KEYWORDS: t distribution, properties 6. True or False: The t distribution is used to construct confidence intervals for the population mean when the population standard deviation is unknown. 7. The t distribution
