Question #1

How hot is the air in the top (crown) of a hot air balloon? Information from Ballooning: The Complete Guide to Riding the Winds, by Wirth and Young (Random House), claims that the air in the crown should be an average of 100°C for a balloon to be in a state of equilibrium. However, the temperature does not need to be exactly 100°C. What is a reasonable and safe range of temperatures? This range may vary with the size and (decorative) shape of the balloon. All balloons have a temperature gauge in the crown. Suppose that 50 readings (for a balloon in equilibrium) gave a mean temperature of x = 97°C. For this balloon, σ ≈ 13°C.

Compute a 95% confidence interval for the average temperature at which this balloon will be in a steady-state equilibrium. (Round your answers to one decimal place.)

Question #2

The personnel office at a large electronics firm regularly schedules job interviews and maintains records of the interviews. From the past records, they have found that the length of a first interview is normally distributed, with mean μ = 37 minutes and standard deviation σ = 7 minutes. (Round your answers to four decimal places.)

Seventeen first interviews are usually scheduled per day. What is the probability that the average length of time for the seventeen interviews will be 40 minutes or longer?

Question #3

How much do wild mountain lions weigh? Adult wild mountain lions (18 months or older) captured and released for the first time in the San Andres Mountains gave the following weights (pounds):

74 109 135 123 60 4

Assume that the population of x values has an approximately normal distribution.

Use a calculator with mean and sample standard deviation keys to find the sample mean weight x and sample standard deviation s. (Round your answers to one decimal place.)

x =        lb

s=         lb

Find a 75% confidence interval for the population average weight μ of all adult mountain lions in the specified region. (Round your answers to one decimal place.)

Question 1

Confidence Interval :-   Lower Limit = Lower Limit = 93.3967
Upper Limit = Upper Limit = 100.6033
95% Confidence interval is ( 93.4 , 100.6 )

Question 2 P ( X >= 40 ) = 1 - P ( X <= 40 )
Standardizing the value  Z = 1.77 P ( Z > 1.77 )
P ( X >= 40 ) = 1 - P ( Z < 1.77 )
P ( X >= 40 ) = 1 - 0.9614
P ( X >= 40 ) = 0.0386
