Question

Attempt 3

Suppose Jason read an article stating that in a 2003–2004 survey, the average American adult woman aged 19–30 drank an average of 1.04 liters of plain water per day with a standard deviation of 0.11 liters. Jason wants to find out if the women at his college drink a similar amount per day. He asks 45 of his female classmates in his Introductory Economics class to record the amount of water they drink in one day, and he is willing to assume that the standard deviation at his college is the same as in the 2003–2004 survey.

Jason wants to construct a 95% confidence interval for μ, the average amount of water the women at his college drink per day. Have the requirements for constructing a z-confidence interval for a mean been met?

Mark all of the following requirements that have been met with
**yes**, and all the requirements that have not been
met with **no**.

-The sample is a simple random sample.

-The population standard deviation is known.

-The population from which the data are obtained is normally
distributed, or the sample size is large enough.

-The requirements for constructing a z-confidence interval for a
mean have been met.

Answer #1

-The sample is a simple random sample. :No (since sampling is convenience , ask only student from his class which is not representative of population

-The population standard deviation is known. :Yes

-The population from which the data are obtained is normally distributed, or the sample size is large enough. :yes (sample size is greater than 30)

-The requirements for constructing a z-confidence interval for a mean have been met. :No

(since sample is not random)

Suppose Jason read an article stating that in a 2003‑2004
survey, the average American adult age 19‑30 drank an average of
1.47 liters of plain water per day with a standard deviation of
0.09 liters. Jason wants to find out if the men at his college
drink a similar amount per day. He asks a random sample of 45 male
students in his college to record the amount of water they drink in
one day, and he is willing to...

A survey of 25 randomly selected customers found that their
average age was 31.84 years with a standard deviation of 9.84
years.
What is the standard error of the mean?
How would the standard error have changed if the sample size
had been 100 instead of 25 (assuming that the mean and standard
deviations were the same)?
How many degrees of freedom would the t-statistic have for this
set of data?
What would the critical value t* be for a...

In the survey "How America Pays for College" the average annual
amount the n=1643 families paid for college was $20977. (a) If the
population standard deviation is $7500, give the 90% confidence
interval (±0.01) for μ, the average amount a family pays for a
college undergraduate The interval is from $ to $ . (b) Would the
margin of error for 99% confidence be larger or smaller? A 99%
confidence interval would have a larger margin of error A 99%...

The American Time Use Survey measures the amount of time that
people spend on various activities. A 2016 random sample of 2,190
households found that the average person watches 2.73 hours of TV
per day (TRUE!!) with a standard deviation of 1.64 hours. Show your
work.
a. Build a 90% confidence interval for average daily TV
viewing.
b. Briefly explain what this confidence interval means.

A survey conducted by the American Automobile Association showed
that a family of four spends an average of $215.60 per day while on
vacation. Suppose a sample of 64 families of four vacationing at
Niagara Falls resulted in a sample mean of $252.45 per day and a
sample standard deviation of $75.50.
a. Develop a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean amount
spent per day by a family of four visiting Niagara Falls (to 2
decimals).
( , )
b. Based...

A survey conducted by the American Automobile Association showed
that a family of four spends an average of $215.60 per day while on
vacation. Suppose a sample of 64 families of four vacationing at
Niagara Falls resulted in a sample mean of $252.45 per day and a
sample standard deviation of $78.50.
a. Develop a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean amount
spent per day by a family of four visiting Niagara Falls (to 2

The owner of a local golf course wants to estimate the
difference between the average ages of males and females that play
on the golf course. He randomly samples 12 men and 10 women that
play on his course. He finds the average age of the men to be 30.81
with a standard deviation of 5.071. The average age of the women
was 46.19 with a standard deviation of 11.982. Construct a 95%
confidence interval to estimate the difference of...

3) A random sample of 420 American teens finds that they spend
an average of 7.2 hours per day using screens, with a standard
deviation of 2.4 hours.
a) Use the 2SD method to find a 95% confidence interval estimate
of the average (mean) hours of screen time that American teens use
per day. Show all work/steps to get the 2SD estimate. Round your
margin of error to three decimal places. Work and Answer:
b) A cell phone company claims...

A nutritionist wants to determine how much time nationally
people spend eating and drinking. Suppose for a random sample of
1124 people age 15 or older, the mean amount of time spent eating
or drinking per day is 2.09 hours with a standard deviation of 0.76
hours. Complete parts (a) through (d) below.
(a) A histogram of time spent eating and drinking each day is
skewed right. Use this result to explain why a large sample size is
needed to...

A nutritionist wants to determine how much time nationally
people spend eating and drinking. Suppose for a random sample of
978 people age 15 or older, the mean amount of time spent eating
or drinking per day is 1.76 hours with a standard deviation of 0.67
hour.
Determine and interpret a 95% confidence interval for the mean
amount of time Americans age 15 or older spend eating and drinking
each day. Select the correct choice below and fill in the...
