Question

The service life, in hours, of certain types of light bulbs can be modeled as a Normal random variable with mean ? and standard deviation ?=40 hours. If a random sample of N bulbs is taken. What is the minimum sample size required to ensure with a confidence level of 96%, that the true mean bulb life,?, is between less than 10 hours and more than 10 hours, with respect to the sample mean?

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

standard deviation = = 40

margin of error = E = 10

At 96% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 96% = 1 - 0.96 = 0.04

/ 2 = 0.04 / 2 = 0.02

Z/2 = Z0.02 = 2.054

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

= ((2.054 * 40) / 10)2

= 67

Sample size = 67

The life in hours of a 75-W light bulb is known to be
approximately normally distributed, with a standard deviation of σ
= 25 hours. A random sample of 20 bulbs has a mean life of x¯ =
1014 hours.
Suppose we wanted to be 90% confidence that the error in
estimating the mean life in hours is less than 10. What sample size
should be used? NOTE: This requires an INTEGER.

Q7:
There is a large supply of light bulbs with the
average life of 1000 hours and the standard
deviation of 50 hours.
A light bulb is drawn at random. Find the probability that it
will last more than 1020 hours.
A random sample of 25 light bulbs is drawn.
Find the probability that the sample average life
is more than 1020 hours.

The quality control manager at a light-bulb factory needs to
estimate the mean life of a new type of light-bulb. The population
standard deviation is assumed to be 65 hours. A random sample of 40
light-bulbs shows a sample mean life of 505 hours. Construct and
explain a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean
life of the new light-bulb.
what size sample would be needed to achieve a margin of error of
15 hours or less?

A package of light bulbs promises an average life of more than
750 hours per bulb. A consumer group did not believe the claim and
tested a sample of 40 bulbs. The average lifetime of these 40 bulbs
was 740 hours with ? = 30hours. The manufacturer responded that its
claim was based on testing hundreds of bulbs.
b.Given the usual sampling assumptions, is there a 95%
probability that 750 lies in the 95% confidence interval of the
manufacturer?
c.If...

a light bulb manufacturer guarantees that the mean
life of a certain type of light bulb is at least 762 hours.A random
sample of 20 light bulbs has a mean life of 736 hours. assume the
population. is normally distributed and the population standard
deviation is 65 hours. at a=0.08

an electrical firm manufactures light bulbs that have a length
of life that is approximately normally distributed with a standard
deviation of 40 hours. the firm claims that the mean life of the
light bulb is 800 hrs
a?if a sample of 30 light bulbs were tested to failure and had
an avg life of 780 hours, find 90% confidence interval on the
mean
b) based on this confidence interval, would you be able to

1) An electrical firm manufactures light bulbs that have a
length of life that is approximately normally distributed with a
standard deviation of 40 hours. If a sample of 36 bulbs has an
average life of 780 hours, calculate the 95% confidence interval
for the population mean of all bulbs produced by this firm
2) Is it true that the confidence interval is narrower for 95%
confidence than for 90% confidence? Explain
3) Is it true that the Sample means...

Question: Light bulbs have lifetimes that are known to be
approximately normally distributed.
Suppose a random sample of 35 light bulbs was tested, and =
943 hours and s = 33 hours.
a. Find a 90% confidence interval for the true mean life of a
light bulb.
b. Find a 95% lower confidence limit for the true mean life of
a light bulb.
c. Are the results obtained in (a) and (b) the same or
different? Explain why.

A random sample of 12 light bulbs has a mean life of 1421 hours
with a standard deviation of 68 hours. Construct a 95% confidence
interval for the mean life, μ, of all light bulbs of this
type. Assume the population has a normal distribution.
