Question

A sample of 7 adult elephants has an average weight of 12,800 pounds. the standard deviation for the sample was 21 pounds.find the 99% confidence interval of the population mean for the weight of adult elephants.assume the value is normally distributed. use a graphing calculator and round up answer to the nearest whole number.

Answer #1

**Given:**

n = 7, Sample mean = = 12800, Sample standard deviation (S) = 21,

Confidence level = 99% = 0.99

Therefore, = 1 - Confidence level = 1 - 0.99 = 0.01

Degrees of freedom = n-1 = 7-1 = 6

**Critical value:**

................Using t table

**99% Confidence
interval:**

A random sample of 130 adult males was selected as part of a
study on weight loss. The average weight at the beginning of the
study was 265 pounds with a standard deviation of 22 pounds.
Assuming the weight is normally distributed, provide a 99%
confidence interval for the mean weight at the start of the study.
