Question

In a random sample of 29 people, the mean commute time to work was 30.1 minutes and the standard deviation was 7.2 minutes. Assume the population is normally distributed and use a t-distribution to construct a 80% confidence interval for the population mean μ? What is the margin of error of μ? Interpret the results.

Answer #1

df = n -1 = 29 - 1 = 28

t critical value at 0.20 significance level with 28 df = 1.313

Margin of error = t * S / sqrt(n)

= 1.313 * 7.2 / sqrt(29)

= **1.755**

80% confidence interval for is

- E < < + E , Where E is margin of error.

30.1 - 1.755 < < 30.1 + 1.755

28.345 < < 31.855

80% CI Is **( 28.345 , 31.855 )**

Interpretation -

**We are 80% confident that true mean of commute time to
work is between 28.345 min and 31.855 min**

In a random sample of 21 ?people, the mean commute time to work

What is the margin of error of ???
Interpret the results.

In a random sample of 18 people, the mean commute time to work
was 33.1 minutes and the standard deviation was 7.2 minutes. Assume
the population is normally distributed and use a t-distribution to
construct a 98% confidence interval for the population mean mu .
What is the margin of error of mu? Interpret the results.
The confidence interval for the population mean mu is:
The margin of error of mu is:

In a random sample of 8 people, the mean commute time to work
was 35.5 minutes and the standard deviation was 7.2 minutes. A 95%
confidence interval using the t-distribution was calculated to be
left parenthesis 29.5 comma 41.5 right parenthesis. After
researching commute times to work, it was found that the
population standard deviation is 9.2 minutes. Find the margin of
error and construct a 95% confidence interval using the standard
normal distribution with the appropriate calculations for a...
