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 upper limit of a 95% confidence level estimate of
the mean when the population standard deviation (σ) is unknown and
the sample size is 40, the sample mean is 110.27 and the sample
standard deviation is 18.95. Determine the upper limit of a 95%
confidence level estimate of the population proportion when the
sample size is 200 customers, 35 of whom respond yes to a survey.

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.

the population mean within plus/minus $5? Show your work.

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.)
