95 percent confidence interval: 3.600956 10.987279 sample estimates: mean of x 7.294118 > mean(x)-qt(.975,length(x)-1)*(sd(x)/sqrt(length(x))) [1] 3.600956 > mean(x)+qt(.975,length(x)-1)*(sd(x)/sqrt(length(x))) [1] 10.98728 8.36 a)The confidence intervals refers to means, not individual scores. b)This should say, if random samples of 9 women were repeatedly selected, then 95% of the time, the confidence interval would contain the population mean. c)We KNOW that ¯ x falls in the confidence interval; this is the sample mean on which the confidence interval is based. d)If we sample the entire population and take the mean, we are going to get the exact mean of the population. 8.51 a) n = σ 2 z 2 m 2 = 200 2 × 1 . 96 2 25 2 = 246 b) We can use the same formula as in part (a).

### What students are saying

• 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.
