Your company is using random checks of their process to make sure that it is working correctly. They provide you data about the exit concentration of a certain pollutant in one of their waste strems and ask you to construct a confidence interval for the population mean of the pollutant concentration. What criteria determine whether you will choose the standard normal distribution or the t distribution to construct your interval? 2. Assume you will use the t distribution to construct your interval. Write the equation for the confidence interval of the population mean in terms of any of the following symbols:

You perform a t-test for your data against the company’s desired pollutant concenrtation every day for a few months. You always use a significance value for your t-test corresponding to a 95% confidence interval. After 100 days, what is the best guess for the number of times that you would have randomly rejected the null hypothesis in error? Answer: Answer: Answer:...
