Question

Determine the sample size needed to construct a 90% confidence interval to estimate the average GPA for the student population at a college with a margin of error equal to 0.4. Assume the standard deviation of the GPA for the student population is 3.5

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

standard deviation = = 3.5

margin of error = E = 0.4

At 90% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 90% = 1 - 0.90 = 0.10

/ 2 = 0.10 / 2 = 0.05

Z/2 = Z0.05 = 1.645

Sample size = n = ((Z/2 * ) / E)2

= ((1.645 *3.5 ) /0.4 )2

= 207

Sample size = 207

Assume that you want to construct a 95% confidence interval
estimate of a population mean. Find an estimate of the sample size
needed to obtain the specified margin of error for the 95%
confidence interval. The sample standard deviation is given
below.
Margin of errors=$6,
standard deviation=$22
The required sample size is __

Construct a 90% confidence interval to estimate the population
proportion with a sample proportion equal to 0.50 and a sample size
equal to 150. What are the upper and lower limits?

1,) Construct a 90% confidence interval for the population
proportion if an obtained sample of size n = 150 has x = 30
2.) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean
if an obtained sample of size n = 35 has a sample mean of 18.4 with
a sample standard deviation of 4.5.

(S 9.2) Recall that a confidence interval for the sample mean
can be calculated using the interval
x¯?tn?1?sn??????x¯+tn?1?sn???
Thus, the margin of error is
tn?1?sn???
We can recover the margin of error from an interval constructed
on the calculator using algebra.
Suppose a random sample of size 16 was taken from a normally
distributed population, and the sample standard deviation was
calculated to be s = 6.3. We'll assume the sample mean is
10 for convenience.
a) Calculate the margin...
