Questions 1

3 refer to the following:
After the earthquake and tsunami in Japan damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant,
a random sample of American adults was polled about their opinions on nuclear power.
39% of those polled support building new nuclear power plants.
For this problem, assume that the sample included 1000 American adults.

1. Find the error bound for the true proportion of all Americans who support building new
nuclear power plants.
Use a 92% confidence level.
A.
0.054
B.
0.029
C.
0.022
D.
0.027
2.
When planning this study, which two actions could we expect would result in a
larger
error bound?
A. Increase the confidence level and increase the sample size.
B. Increase the confidence level and decrease the sample size.
C. Decrease the confidence level and increase the sample size.
D. Decrease the confidence level and decrease the sample size.
3.
In 2009, a similar poll showed that 49% of a sample of 1005 randomly selected American
adults supported the building of new nuclear power plants.
To test whether the true proportion of all American adults who support building new nuclear
power plants has changed between the 2009 survey and the 2011 survey, the most appropriate
alternate hypothesis would be:
A.
Ha:
p
2011
≤
p
2009
B.
Ha:
p
2011
<
p
2009
C.
Ha:
p
2011
≠ 0
.
49
D.
Ha:
p
2011
≠
p
2009

8 refer to the following:
A website at a university housing office claims that the average rent for a room in shared housing
near the university is $726.
A new student is concerned that the true average rent is higher.
Rents for a random sample of 6 recently advertised rooms in shared housing are shown below.
(Assume that the underlying population of rents for individual rooms is approximately normally distributed.)
