Chapter 8 odd number solutions 7. A larger sample size would be needed to reduce the margin of error. Section 8.3 can be used to show that the sample size would need to be increased to n = 246. Solving for n , shows n = 246 15. 90% confidence df = 64 t .05 = 1.669 19.5 ± 1.669 19.5 ± 1.08 or 18.42 to 20.58 95% confidence df = 64 t .025 = 1.998 19.5 ± 1.998 19.5 ± 1.29 or 18.21 to 20.79 21. liters of alcoholic beverages t .025 = 2.093 df = 19 95% confidence interval: ± t .025

Sampling 5403 college graduates to obtain the $100 margin of error would be viewed as too expensive and too much effort by most researchers. 43. a. Margin of Error = 95% Confidence Interval: .53 ± .0253 or .5047 to .5553 b. Margin of Error = 1.96= .0234 95% Confidence Interval: .31 ± .0234 or .2866 to .3334 c. Margin of Error = 1.96= .0110

95% Confidence Interval: .05 ± .0110 or .039 to .061 d. The margin of error decreases asgets smaller. If the margin of error for all of the interval estimates must be less than a given value (say .03), an estimate of the largest proportion should be used as a planning value. Usingas a planning value guarantees that the margin of error for all the interval estimates will be small enough.

    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.
