Question

A company has developed a new type of light bulb, and wants to
estimate its mean lifetime. A simple random sample of 12 bulbs had
a sample mean lifetime of 739 hours with a sample standard
deviation of 45 hours. It is reasonable to believe that the
population is approximately normal. Find the lower bound of the 95%
confidence interval for the population mean lifetime of all bulbs
manufactured by this new process

Round to the nearest integer Write only a number as your
answer. Do not write any units.

Answer #1

The lower bound of confidence interval is given by

Where

Where t is the table value from t distribution with n-1=11 degrees of freedom.

So the lower bound is

So the nearest integer is 710.

Thank you !!

1. A company has developed a new type of light bulb and wants to
estimate its mean lifetime. A simple random sample of 12 bulbs had
a sample mean lifetime of 651 hours with a sample standard
deviation of 31 hours. It is reasonable to believe that the
population is approximately normal. Find the lower bound of the 95%
confidence interval for the population mean lifetime of all bulbs
manufactured by this new process. Round to...

A company has developed a new type of lightbulb, and wants to
estimate its mean lifetime. A simple random sample of 81 bulbs had
a mean lifetime of 585.6 hours with a standard deviation of 28
hours.

The quality control manager at a light-bulb factory needs to
estimate the mean life of a new type of light-bulb. The population
standard deviation is assumed to be 65 hours. A random sample of 40
light-bulbs shows a sample mean life of 505 hours. Construct and
explain a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean
life of the new light-bulb.
what size sample would be needed to achieve a margin of error of
15 hours or less?

a light bulb manufacturer guarantees that the mean
life of a certain type of light bulb is at least 762 hours.A random
sample of 20 light bulbs has a mean life of 736 hours. assume the
population. is normally distributed and the population standard
deviation is 65 hours. at a=0.08

The quality control manager at a light-bulb factory
needs to estimate the mean life of a new type of light-bulb. The
population standard deviation is assumed to be 50 hours. A random
sample of 35 light-bulbs shows a sample mean life of 490 hours.
Construct and explain a 90% confidence interval estimate of the
population mean life of the new light-bulb. What size sample would
be needed to achieve a margin of error of 15 hours or less? Show
all...

A light bulb manufacturer wants to compare the mean lifetimes of
two of its light bulbs, model A and model B. Independent random
samples of the two models were taken. Analysis of 11 bulbs of model
A showed a mean lifetime of 1361hours and a standard deviation of
83 hours. Analysis of 15 bulbs of model B showed a mean lifetime of
1304 hours and a standard deviation of 81hours. Assume that the
populations of lifetimes for each model are...

A technician in a light bulb manufacturing plant desires
to determine the mean lifetime of the light bulbs in the most
recent production run. The technician takes an SRS of 20 light
bulbs. The mean and standard deviation of this sample is 72 hours
and 15 hours respectively.
What is the 99% confidence interval for the mean
lifetime ( µ ) for all light bulbs in this production
run?

A package of light bulbs promises an average life of more than
750 hours per bulb. A consumer group did not believe the claim and
tested a sample of 40 bulbs. The average lifetime of these 40 bulbs
was 740 hours with ? = 30hours. The manufacturer responded that its
claim was based on testing hundreds of bulbs.
b.Given the usual sampling assumptions, is there a 95%
probability that 750 lies in the 95% confidence interval of the
manufacturer?
c.If...

The quality control manager at a light bulb factory needs to
estimate the mean life of a large shipment of light bulbs. The
standard deviation is 91 hours. A random sample of 49 light bulbs
indicated a sample mean life of 290 hours. Complete parts (a)
through (d) below.
A. Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate for the
population mean life of light bulbs in this shipment. The 99%
confidence interval estimate is from a lower limit of [ ]...

A light bulb manufacturer wants to determine how large a sample
is needed to test the hours a light bulb has. The manufacturer
wants to be 99% confident and a margin of error of 25 hours. It is
known that the population standard deviation is 300 hours. What is
the minimum number of light bulbs to be tested?
