Question

The principal of a large local high school wants to know what proportion of her students are planning to attend college. Suppose that 72% of all students in her high school are planning to attend college. What is the probability that an SRS of size 200 will give a sample proportion between 66% and 78%?

0.939

0.061

0.099

0.815

Answer #1

Solution

Given that,

p = 0.72

1 - p = 1 - 0.72 = 0.28

n = 200

= p = 0.72

[p ( 1 - p ) / n] = [(0.72 * 0.28 ) / 200 ] = 0.032

P( 0.66 < < 0.78 )

= P[(0.66 - 0.72) /0.032 < ( - ) / < (0.78 - 0.72) / 0.032]

= P(-1.875 < z < 1.875 )

= P(z < 1.875 ) - P(z < -1.875 )

Using z table,

= 0.9696 - 0.0304

= 0.9392

Answer = 0.939

9- The dean of the school wants to know the proportion of
students in the school who prefer online classes for the next
semester. How do you conduct a research to estimate this proportion
by sampling (suppose that you can take only one sample of size n
which is smaller than the population size N, and also suppose that
a %90 percent confidence interval is fine). - You should explain
all steps you take including how you make decision about...

Dylan wants to determine a 95 percent confidence interval for
the true proportion of high school students in the area who attend
their home basketball games. How large of a sample must he have to
get a margin of error less than 0.02? [To find n, use the value p*
= 1/2 for the sample proportion and the values for z* from a
z-table or t-table.]

A sporting goods manager wants to know what percentage of high
school students play tennis. They want their estimate to be
accurate within + .02 (E) at the 95% confidence level. If secondary
data indicated that 25% of high school students played tennis, how
many interviews should be done?

Kim wants to determine a 90 percent confidence interval for the
true proportion of high school students in the area who attend
their home basketball games. How large of a sample must she have to
get a margin of error less than 0.03?
HINT: To find n, since no previous study has been done, use the
value p = 0.5 for the proportion and one of the values (1.282,
1.645, 1.96, 2.576) for the critical value depending on the
confidence...

A survey is planned to determine what proportion of high-school
students in a metropolitan school system have regularly smoked
marijuana. The school administrators would like to estimate the
proportion with 95 % confidence and a margin of error of no more
than 4%.
It was reported that 31.03% of high school students in a
similar metropolitan area regularly smoke marijuana. If this
estimate is used, what sample size would be required? n =
If the administrators choose not to use...

12) A high school principal wanted to know how the teachers at
her school felt about early dismissal for Homecoming. She put the
names of the 114 faculty in a hat and randomly selected 30 of the
names. She gave questionnaires to those 30 people asking whether
they agreed or disagreed with the following statement: Valuable
learning time should not be sacrificed for extracurricular social
activities.The questionnaires were filled out anonymously. Her
conclusion was that 80% of the faculty were...

Suppose the national reading level for high school students 120
words per minute with a standard deviation of 14. A local high
school wants to know their students read at a level different from
the national average. The level of the test is set at 20. A random
sample size of 122 students has been drawn and the resulting
average is 130 words per minute. Provide the critical value, test
statistia and the number of this hypothesis test has. Show...

Cora wants to determine a 80 percent confidence interval for the
true proportion of high school students in the area who attend
their home basketball games. How large of a sample must she have to
get a margin of error less than 0.02? Assume we have no prior
estimate of the proportion and want a conservative choice for the
sample size.

Suppose the national reading level for high school students is
140 words per minute with a standard deviation of 12. A local high
school wants to know if their students read at a level different
from the national average. The level of the test is set at .20. A
random sample size of 125 students has been drawn and the resulting
average is 132 words per minute. Provide the critical value, the
test statistic and the number of tails this...
