6. A sample of 500 batteries is tested and the average lifetime of this sample is found to be 225 hours. Based on this information, you report that the average lifetime of all batteries of this type is 225 hours, plus or minus 50 hours. The 225 hours in this problem represents a: a) Parameter b) Statistic 7. If the confidence level of a confidence interval decreases, then the margin of error: 8. Suppose you have a confidence interval for the population mean. If the sample mean X were to increase (and everything else stayed the same) then the margin of error for your confidence interval would: 9. The amount of bias in a survey is included in the margin of error of the survey. a) True b) False

### What students are saying

• 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.
