Question

Independent samples from two regions of the same area gave the following chemical measurements (ppm). Assume the population distributions are approximately normal. Region 1: 438, 306, 402, 1155, 1075, 500, 340 Region 2: 778, 387, 816, 767, 479, 710, 389, 826 Find a 90% confidence interval for the difference between the means.

(a) What is the point estimate?

(b) What is the margin of error?

(c) What is the lower limit?

(d) What is the upper limit?

(e) What is the confidence interval?

Answer #1

The sample sizes are small, . Since the population standard deviations are not known, we use T-test.

a)Here, the sample means are . The sample standard deviations are

The point estimate of the difference in means is

b) The margin of error is

With , The margin of error is

e)The 90% confidence interval for difference in means is

c) The lower limit is

d)The upper limit is

.

Independent random samples from two regions in the same area
gave the following chemical measurements (ppm). Assume the
population distributions of the chemical are mound-shaped and
symmetric for these two regions. Let u1 be the population mean for
x1 and u2 be the population mean for x2 . Suppose the confidence
interval for u1-u2 for a specific level of confidence is - 30.77 to
2.25. Does the interval consist of numbers that are all positive?
all negative? or different signs?...

A study of fox rabies in a country gave the following
information about different regions and the occurrence of rabies in
each region. A random sample of
n1 = 16
locations in region I gave the following information about the
number of cases of fox rabies near that location.

Inorganic phosphorous is a naturally occurring element in all
plants and animals, with concentrations increasing progressively up
the food chain (fruit < vegetables < cereals < nuts <
corpse). Geochemical surveys take soil samples to determine
phosphorous content (in ppm, parts per million). A high phosphorous
content may or may not indicate an ancient burial site, food
storage site, or even a garbage dump. The Hill of Tara is a very
important archaeological site in Ireland. It is by legend...
