Question

In the US, the population mean height for 3-yr-old boys is 38 inches. Suppose a random sample of 15 non-US 3-yr-old boys showed a sample mean of 37.2 inches with a standard deviation of 3 inches. Assume that the heights are normally distributed in the population. After conducting the hypothesis testing to determine whether the population mean for non-US boys is significantly different from the US population mean, we fail to reject the null hypothesis at 0.05 level.

If you were to construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean, do you expect to contain 38 inches in the interval?

Select one:

a. Not contain.

b. Contain.

Answer #1

Ans : b. Contain.

( we fail to reject the null hypothesis at 0.05 level. )

The heights of 11-year old boys in the United States are
normally distributed. A random sample of 9 boys
was taken and their mean height (in inches) was 56.67 and their
sample standard deviation was 3 inches. Perform a
hypothesis test at the 10% significance level to determine if the
mean height of 11-year old boys is more than 54
inches. Give the hypotheses, test statistic, rejection
region, P-value, decision, and interpretation.

Among American women aged 20 to 29 years, mean height = 64.2
inches, with a standard deviation of 2.7 inches.
A)Use Chebyshev’s Inequality to construct an interval guaranteed
to contain at least 75% of all such women`s heights. Include
appropriate units.
B)Suppose that a random sample size of n = 50 is selected from
this population of women. What is the probability that the sample
mean height will be less than 63.2 inches?

How large a sample size is required to determine the
mean height of eight-year-old boys within + 1 inch with 95%
confidence if the population standard deviation is 2.1
inches?
