1. For a sample of 6 jugs of 2 % low fat milk produced by “Happy Cow Dairy” the fat content X i has been determined as: 2 . 08 2 . 10 1 . 81 1 . 98 1 . 91 2 . 06 a) Making no assumptions on the distribution of the fat content, estimate the proportion of milk jugs having a fat content of 2.05 % or more. b) Estimate the mean fat content of “Happy Cow Dairy” 2 % low fat milk. c) Are the estimators used in a) and b) unbiased? d) Give the estimated standard errors of the estimators used in a) and b). d) Are there any alternative estimators for the parameters in a) and b), if you are given the information that the variable ”fat content” is normally distributed? If so, state the alternative estimators. 2. A random sample of 100 voters is selected and 65 of them are found to favor Candidate C. We want to find a confidence interval for the proportion of the voting population favoring Candidate C. (a) Give the relevant parameter that is to be estimated, and the point estimator and the estimate. (b) Check the appropriate conditions to see whether one can use a large sample confidence interval for the parameter in (a). (c) Find a 95% confidence interval for the parameter you stated in part (a).

    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.
