Chap. 6: 6.4 (a), 6.5, 6.13, 6.18(a, b), 6.20, 6.30, 6.32, 6.39, 6.43, 6.48 6.4 (a) 3.06/= .33 mm 6.5 (a) We would predict the SD of the new measurements to be about 3 mm because this is our estimate (based on Exercise 6.4) of the population SD. (b) We would expect the SE of the new measurements to be 3/ .13 mm. 6.13 (a) This statement is false. The confidence interval allows us to make an inference concerning the mean of the entire population. We know that 59.77 < < 61.09. (b) This statement is true. (See part (a).) 6.18 (a) 5,111 ± (2.306)(818/) (4482,5740) or 4,482 < μ < 5,740 units (b) We are 95% confident that the average invertase activity of all fungal tissue incubated at 95% relative humidity for 24 hours is between 4,482 units and 5,740 units. 6.20 = 1.20; s = .14; n = 50. The degrees of freedom are 50 - 1 = 49. From Table 4 with df = 50 (the df value closest to 49) we find that t .05 = 1.676. The 90% confidence interval for μ is ± t .05 1.20 ± 1.676 () (1.17,1.23)
