Question

Determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be 95% confident that the sample mean is within one unit of the population mean and sigmaequals13.7. Assume the population is normally distributed. A 95 % confidence level requires a sample size of nothing. (Round up to the nearest whole number as needed.)

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

standard deviation = = 13.7

margin of error = E = 1

At 95% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 95% = 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

/ 2 = 0.05 / 2 = 0.025

Z_{/2}
= Z_{0.025} = 1.960

Sample size = n = ((Z_{/2}
*
) / E)^{2}

= ((1.960 * 13.7) / 1)^{2}

= 721.03

= 721

Sample size = 721

determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be
95% confident that the sample mean is within 1.4 unites of the
population mean. Assume that the population is normally distributed
with standard deviation σ = 4.7
1. whats the critical value?
2. whats the margin of error?
3. whats the sample size?

Determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be
90% confident that the sample mean is within one unit of the
population mean and sigma=16.7. Assume the population is normally
distributed.

(CO6) Market research indicates that a new product has the
potential to make the company an additional $3.8 million, with a
standard deviation of $1.7 million. If this estimate was based on a
sample of 10 customers from...

A researcher wishes to? estimate, with 95?% ?confidence, the
population proportion of adults who are confident with their?
country's banking system. His estimate must be accurate within 3?%
of the population proportion. ?(a) No preliminary estimate is
available. Find the minimum sample size needed. ?(b) Find the
minimum sample size? needed, using a prior study that found that
22?% of the respondents said they are confident with their?
country's banking system. ?(c) Compare the results from parts ?(a)
and ?(b)....

Determine the required sample size if you want
to be 99% confident that the sample proportion is within 2% of the
population proportion if no preliminary estimate
of the true population is available.

If you want to be 95% confident of estimating the population
mean to within a sampling error of plus or minus 6 and the standard
deviation is assumed to be 20, what sample size is required?
The sample size required is __
(Round up to the nearest integer.)

Assume that a population data is normally distributed with
standard deviation of 1.4. Determine the minimum sample size
required when you want to be 99% confident that the sample mean is
within two units of the population mean.

If you want to be 95% confident that estimating the population
mean is within a sampling error of + -200 and the standard
deviation is assumed to be 1000, what is the sample size required?
Round up the answer to the nearest integer.

If you want to be 95% confident when estimating the population
