Question

Using the simple random sample of weights of women from a data set, we obtain these sample statistics: nequals40 and x overbarequals153.03 lb. Research from other sources suggests that the population of weights of women has a standard deviation given by sigmaequals30.91 lb. a. Find the best point estimate of the mean weight of all women. b. Find a 90% confidence interval estimate of the mean weight of all women. Click here to view a t distribution table. LOADING... Click here to view page 1 of the standard normal distribution table.

a. The best point estimate is nothing lb. (Type an integer or a decimal.)

b. The 90% confidence interval estimate is nothing lbless thanmuless than nothing lb.

Answer #1

a)

Point estimate = = 153.03

b)

90% confidence interval for is

- Z * / sqrt(n) < < + Z * / sqrt(n)

153.03 - 1.645 * 30.91 / sqrt(40) < < 153.03 + 1.645 * 30.91 / sqrt(40)

**144.99 < <
161.07**

In a study designed to test the effectiveness of magnets for
treating back? pain, 35 patients were given a treatment with
magnets and also a sham treatment without magnets. Pain was
measured using a scale from 0? (no pain) to 100? (extreme pain).
After given the magnet? treatments, the 35 patients had pain scores
with a mean of 6.0 and a standard deviation of 2.4. After being
given the sham? treatments, the 35 patients had pain scores with a
mean...

In a test of the effectiveness of garlic for lowering
cholesterol, 50 subjects were treated with garlic in a processed
tablet form. Cholesterol levels were measured before and after the
treatment. The changes (beforeminusafter) in their levels of LDL
cholesterol (in mg/dL) have a mean of 4.2 and a standard deviation
of 15.5. Construct a 90% confidence interval estimate of the mean
net change in LDL cholesterol after the garlic treatment. What does
the confidence interval suggest about the effectiveness...
