Question

When designing a study to determine the population mean, what is the minimum number you would need to survey to be 95% conﬁdent that the population mean is estimated to within 3 participants? Take the population standard deviation σ = 15. Will your project sample size n = 100 be enough? [10 points]

Answer #1

Solution

standard deviation =s = =15

Margin of error = E = 3

At 95% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 95% = 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

/ 2 = 0.05 / 2 = 0.025

Z/2 = Z0.025 = 1.96

sample size = n = [Z/2* / E] 2

n = ( 1.96*15 /3 )2

n =96.04

Will your project sample size n = 100 be enough yes

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
95% confident that the sample mean is within 1.2 unites of the
population mean. Assume that the population is normally distributed
with standard deviation σ = 4.8.

You are getting ready to take a sample from a large population,
and need to determine the appropriate sample size. You are
estimating sales at a large chain of department stores. A previous
survey from the same population found a standard deviation of $18.
What sample size is needed to have a 95% confidence of estimating
the population mean within plus/minus $5? Show your work.

4. What is the minimum sample size to select to find the mean
number of absences per month for school children, within ±0.2
points at a 95 % Confidence Level if it is known that the standard
deviation is 1.1 days?

Given the population mean, μ = 45, and the population standard
deviation, σ = 15 with a sample size of, n = 100.n = 100. Determine
P ( x ¯ ≤ 42 ). To do this problem first determine the sampling
mean and the sampling standard deviation in order to convert to a
z-score. Round your answer to 4 decimals.

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.)

You want to obtain a sample to estimate a population mean. Based
on previous evidence, you believe the population standard deviation
is approximately σ=75.4σ=75.4. You would like to be 95% confident
that your estimate is within 5 of the true population mean. How
large of a sample size is required? n=____

Determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be
99% confident that the sample mean is within 0.50 units of the
population mean. Assume a population standard deviation of 1.4 in a
normally distributed population.

Suppose that we take a random sample of size n from a population
having a mean μ and a standard deviation of σ. What is the
probability or confidence we have that our sample will be within
+/- 1 of the population mean μ?
(a) μ = 10, σ = 2, n = 25

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.
