You randomly select 35 cans and carefully measure the contents. The sample mean of the cans is 133.9 ounces. Does the machine need to be reset? Explain your reasoning. N0 , it is likely that you would have randomly sampled 35 cans with a mean equal to 133.9 ounces, because it lies within the range of a usual event, namely within 2 standard deviations of the mean of the sample means. Find the margin of error for the given values of c, s, and n. c=0.90, s:3.3,n=64 E I .679 A doctor wants to estimate the HDL cholesterol of all 20— to 29-year—old females. How many subjects are needed to estimate the HDL cholesterol within 2 points with 99% confidence assuming 6 I 18.]? Suppose the doctor would be content with 95% confidence. How does the decrease in confidence affect the sample size required? A 99% confidence level requires 544 subjects. fillx A 95% confidence level requires 315 subjects. How does the decrease in confidence affect the sample size required? The sample size is the same for all levels of confidence. g The lower the confidence level the smaller the sample size. The lower the confidence level the larger the sample size.

Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of women who change their nail polish once a week. A 95% confidence interval for the population proportion is ( .622 , .644 The mean height of women in a country (ages 20 — 29) is 64.1 inches. A random sample of 65 women in this age group is selected. What is the probability that the mean height for the sample is greater than 65 inches? Assume G = 2.77. The probability that the mean height for the sample is greater than 65 inches is 0.0044 . YOU ANSWERED: .3 Page 2 Submitted: 09/26/11 3:33pm Assignment: Week 5 Quiz Course: Math 201 Fall B10 Book: Larson: Elementary Statistics: Picturing the World, 5e The population mean and standard deviation are given below. Find the required probability and determine whether the given sample mean would be considered unusual. For a sample of n = 75, find the probability of a sample mean being greater than 216 if u = 215 and 6 : 3.9. For a sample of n = 75, the probability of a sample mean being greater than 216 if u = 215 and o I 3.9 is 0.0132 .> If— Would the given sample mean be considered unusual? The sample mean would be considered unusual because it does not lie within the range of a usual event, namely within 2 standard deviations of the mean of the sample means. YOU ANSWERED: .225 lies In a random sample of four microwave ovens, the mean repair cost was $65.00 and the standard deviation was $1 1.50. Assume the variable is normally distributed and use a t-distribution to construct a 90% confidence interval for the population mean 11. What is the margin of error of u? The 90% confidence interval for the population mean u is (51.47 , 78.53 The margin of error is 13.53 . YOU ANSWERED: 52.74 77.26 12.26 Use the confidence interval to find the estimated margin of error. Then find the sample mean. A biologist reports a confidence interval of (2.5,3.3) when estimating the mean height (in centimeters) of a sample of seedlings. The estimated margin of error is .4 . The sample mean is 2.9 . Find the critical value t c for the confidence level 0 : 0.80 and sample size n = 15. tc : 1.345 Page 3 Assignment: Week 5 Quiz Submitted: 09/26/11 3:33pm Course: Math 201 Fall B1 Book: Larson: Elementary Statistics: Picturing the World, Se Let p be the population proportion for the following condition. Find the point estimates for p and q. A study of 4348 adults from country A found. that 2488 were obeSe or overweight. The point estimate for p, 3, is .572 . The point estimate for q, a, is .428 . You are given the sample mean and the sample standard deviation. Use this information to construct the 90% and 95% confidence intervals for the population mean. Which interval is wider? If convenient, use technology to construct the confidence intervals. A random sample of 35 gas grills has a mean price of $631.40 and a standard deviation of $59.40. The 90% confidence interval is (614.88 , 647.92 The 95% confidence interval is (611.72 , 651.08 Which interval is wider?
