A sample of 36 sheets of metal from a large normal population
has a mean thickness of 30 mm. We know from previous quality
control testing that the population standard deviation is 3.3 mm.
Develop a 95% confidence interval for the true mean for the
population.

You want to obtain a sample to estimate a population mean. Based
on previous evidence, you believe the population standard deviation
is approximately σ=59.1σ=59.1. You would like to be 90% confident
that your estimate is within 5 of the true population mean. How
large of a sample size is required?
As in the reading, in your calculations:
--Use z = 1.645 for a 90% confidence interval
--Use z = 2 for a 95% confidence interval
--Use z = 2.576 for...

A certain test has a population mean (mu) of 285 with a
population standard deviation (sigma) or 125. You take an SRS of
size 400 find that the sample mean (x-bar) is 288.
The sampling distribution of x-bar is approximately Normal with
mean:
The sampling distribution of x-bar is approximately Normal with
standard deviation:
Based on this sample, a 90% confidence interval for mu is:

Let the following sample of 8 observations be drawn from a
normal population with unknown mean and standard deviation: 16, 26,
20, 14, 23, 10, 12, 29. [You may find it useful to
reference the t table.]
a. Calculate the sample mean and the sample
standard deviation. (Round intermediate calculations to at
least 4 decimal places. Round "Sample mean" to 3 decimal places and
"Sample standard deviation" to 2 decimal places.)
b. Construct the 95% confidence interval for
the population...

A statistics practitioner took a random sample of 80
observations from a population with a standard deviation of 25 and
compute the sample mean to be 100.
(a) Estimate the population mean confidence interval with 90%
confidence level, 95% confidence level and 99% confidence
level.
(b) Describe the effect of increasing the confidence level on
the confidence interval.
(c) At 99% confidence level, if the population standard
deviation is reduced to 16, will the confidence interval be wider
or narrower?

You are given the sample mean and the population standard
deviation. Use this information to construct the 90% and 95%
confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results
and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. If convenient,
use technology to construct the confidence intervals. A random
sample of 55 home theater systems has a mean price of $115.00.
Assume the population standard deviation is $17.70.
