A confidence interval with a = 0.10 (that is a 90% CI) for the population parameter p is (1333,1570). This means that the probability that u is between 13.33 and 15.70 is 0.90.

Using data collected over the last month, a 90% confidence interval for the mean number is (17.11, 25.12). A 95% confidence interval of (16.38, 25.48) is also created. What is the correct conclusion for the p—value associated with the hypothesis test of H0 : ,u = 25? O O The p—value will be greater than 0.10.

A researcher wants to test whether attending a marketing seminar for a product will change customers perception of the product/service. The researcher has the 11 cus— tomers rate the product before and after the seminar. Using what method will he perform a hypothesis test? K Test for the difference between population proportions.

A sample of 100 components is drawn, and a 95% confidence interval for the proportion defective specifies this proportion to within i 0.06. To get a more precise estimate of the number of defective components, the sample size will be increased to 400, and the confidence interval will be recomputed. What will be the approximate total width of the new confidence interval?
