these 39 patients, the mean angle of deformity was 24.66 degrees and the standard deviation was 6.24 degrees. A dotplot of the data revealed no outliers or strong skewness. a. What parameter do you want to estimate, and at what confidence level? b. What inference method will you be using? Check the conditions. c. What is your 90% C.I.? d. Interpret the C.I. in the context of the problem. e. Is it plausible that the mean angle in deformity is 27 degrees? Explain. 7. Gloria Chavez and Ronald Flynn are the candidates for mayor in a large city. We want to estimate the proportion p of all registered voters in the city who plan to vote for Chavez with 94% confidence and a margin of error no greater than 0.04. a. How large a random sample do we need? Show your work. b. How large a random sample do we need, if we have prior knowledge that 42% of voters will vote for Chavez. 8. Suppose we want a 90% confidence interval for the average amount spent on books by freshmen in their first year at a major university. The interval is to have a margin of error of $3. Based on last year’s book sales, we estimate that the standard deviation of amount spent will be close to $29. How many observations will be required? Show your work.

    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.
