INEN314 Homework #5 (Due 10/10) Problems 1-2 are related to your experiments in Lab#5. You need to use the data collected from the Lab to finish this homework. 1. [10 pts] (Part 1 from in Lab #5). 1a) What do you think would be the most appropriate distribution to assume for x and y ? Why? 1b) Let µ x , µ y , σ x , and σ y denote the population mean and standard deviation of x and y . Calculate point estimates of μ x and μ y . Calculate the sample standard deviation of x and y . For the remaining parts of Problems 1 and 2, assume the population standard deviations (which you do not know) are equal to the sample standard deviations . 1c) Find a two-sided 95% confidence interval for µ x . Based on the confidence interval, do you think it is unlikely that µ x is equal to the target value 0? 1d) Find a lower one-sided 99% (not 95%) confidence interval for µ y . 2. [8 pts] (Part 2 from Lab #5). 2a) Assuming your data are normally distributed, what is the distribution of new x old x ? You can leave this as a function of µ new and µ old .

    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.
