# please give breakdown of formula to answer these homework question A transect is an archaeological study area that is 1/5 mile wide and 1 mile long.

A transect is an archaeological study area that is 1/5 mile wide and 1 mile long. A site in a transect is the location of a significant archaeological find. Let x represent the number of sites per transect. In a section of Chaco Canyon, a large number of transects showed that x has a population variance σ2 = 42.3. In a different section of Chaco Canyon, a random sample of 18 transects gave a sample variance s2 = 48.3 for the number of sites per transect. Use a 5% level of significance to test the claim that the variance in the new section is greater than 42.3. Find a 95% confidence interval for the population variance.

(b) Find the value of the chi-square statistic for the sample. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

What are the degrees of freedom?

(f) Find the requested confidence interval for the population variance. (Round your answers to two decimal places.)
