(c) df ± 17, t * ± 1.333. 11.5 (c) The t 2 curve is a bit shorter at the peak and slightly higher in the tails (see TI-83 plot below). (d) The t 9 curve has moved toward coincidence with the standard normal curve. (e) The t 30 curve cannot be distinguished from the standard normal curve. As the degrees of freedom increase, the t (df) curve approaches the standard normal density graph. 1 2 3 2 ± 0.0173. s > 2 3 9.3 > 2 27 ± 1.7898. s > 1 n 11.6 (a) 0.228.

174 Chapter 11 11.8 (a) 24. (b) 1.12 is between 1.059 ( p ± 0.15) and 1.318 ( p ± 0.10). (c) The P -value is between 0.30 and 0.20 (in fact, P ± 0.2738). (d) t ± 1.12 is not significant at either ± ± 0.10 or at ± ± 0.05. 11.9 (a) Since the sample size is small ( n ² 15), the distribution of the CSB vitamin C data should be close to normal. We can check this using a stemplot and a normal probability plot. 11 4 2 2236 31 1 Since there are no outliers and the normal plot is reasonably linear, the assumption of nor- mality seems justified despite the small number of observations. We also must assume that the eight observations represent an SRS from the population of all possible amounts of vitamin C in samples of CSB. Since the eight observations were taken from a production run, this seems like a reasonable assumption provided that the observations were taken at regular intervals. (b) We will use the t -procedure. ± 22.50, s ± 7.19, df ± n ³ 1 ± 7. Using Table C with df ± 7, we find t * ± 2.365. The 95% confidence interval is therefore 22.50 ´ (2.365) ± 22.5 ´ 6.0, or (16.5, 28.5). (c) Letting ² ± the mean vitamin C content per 100 g, we wish to test H 0 : ² ± 40 vs. H a : ² µ 40. The t test statistic is and the corresponding P -value (from soft- ware) is 0.0002. Clearly, this result is incompatible with a process mean of ² ± 40. We reject H 0 and conclude that the vitamin C content for this run does not conform to specifications (specifically, it is below the specifications). 11.10 (a) The stemplot shown below has stems in 1000s, split 5 ways. The data are right-skewed with a high outlier of 2433 (and possibly 1933). The normal plot shows these two outliers, but otherwise it is not strikingly different from a line. 03 0 4444455 0 666667777 0 88899999 1 0011 1 22223 14 4 1 19 2 2 24 (b) ± 926, s ± 427.2, standard error ± 69.3 (all in mg). (c) Use of the t -procedure is justified here because the sample size is large ( n ± 38 30) and thus the distribution of will be approximately normal by the central limit theorem.

Inference for Distributions 175 with 30 degrees of freedom, we have t * ± 2.042. The approximate 95% confidence interval is then 926 ² (2.042) (69.3), or 784.5 to 1067.5 mg; MINITAB reports 785.6 to 1066.5 mg.
