Question

What percentage of hospitals provide at least some charity care? Based on a random sample of hospital reports from eastern states, the following information is obtained (units in percentage of hospitals providing at least some charity care):

57.2 | 55.7 | 52.9 | 65.7 | 59.0 | 64.7 | 70.1 | 64.7 | 53.5 | 78.2 |

Assume that the population of *x* values has an
approximately normal distribution.

(a) Use a calculator with mean and sample standard deviation
keys to find the sample mean percentage *x* and the sample
standard deviation *s*. (Round your answers to one decimal
place.)

x = |
% |

s = |
% |

(b) Find a 90% confidence interval for the population average
*μ* of the percentage of hospitals providing at least some
charity care. (Round your answers to one decimal place.)

lower limit | % |

upper limit | % |

Answer #1

a)

Sample Mean, x̅ = ΣX/n = 62.2%

sample std dev , s = √(Σ(X- x̅ )²/(n-1) ) = 8.0 %

b)

degree of freedom= DF=n-1= 9

't value=' tα/2= 1.8331 [Excel
formula =t.inv(α/2,df) ]

Standard Error , SE = s/√n =
2.5448

margin of error , E=t*SE =
4.665

confidence interval is

Interval Lower Limit= x̅ - E = 57.5
%

Interval Upper Limit= x̅ + E = 66.8
%

confidence interval is ( 57.5 < µ <
66.8 )
