Question

A researcher is interested in estimating the mean weight of a semi tracker truck to determine the potential load capacity. She takes a random sample of 36 trucks and computes a sample mean of 20,000 pounds with sample variance of 1,600. The 95% confidence interval for the population mean weight of a semi tracker truck is ______________.

19,429 to 20,761

19,229 to 20,211

18,229 to 20,771

19,229 to 20,771

A researcher is interested in estimating the proportion of low
birth weight (LBW) infants delivered at less than 6.0 lbs in a
population of low income mothers. Suppose the researcher is
estimating based on a national prevalence for LBW published by the
US Census bureau indicating that 16% of infants are born
categorized as LBW. Calculate the margin of error for a 95%
confident sample size and estimating the need to enroll 36
patients.

A national survey of seventh graders found a mean weight of 111
pounds. A researcher wondered whether seventh graders at her school
differed from this value. She measured the weight of a random
sample of 25 seventh graders and found a mean of 116 with a
standard deviation estimate (i.e., �̂) of 10.0. Test the viability
of the hypothesis that µ = 111. Calculate the 95% confidence
interval as well.

Suppose a researcher, interested in obtaining an estimate of
the average level of some enzyme in a certain human population,
takes a sample of 36 individuals, determines the level of the
enzyme in each, and computes a sample mean of 22.
Suppose further it is known that the variable of interest is
approximately normally distributed with standard deviation of 7.
Give a 94% confidence interval of population mean.

1. A university with a high water bill is interested in
estimating the mean amount of time that students spend in the
shower each day. In a sample of 11 students, the average time was
5.33 minutes and the standard deviation was 1.33 minutes. Using
this sample information, construct a 99% confidence interval for
the mean amount of time that students spend in the shower each day.
Assume normality.
a) What is the lower limit of the 99% interval? Give...

You are interested in estimating the the mean weight of the
local adult population of female white-tailed deer (doe). From past
data, you estimate that the standard deviation of all adult female
white-tailed deer in this region to be 39 pounds. What sample size
would you need to in order to estimate the mean weight of all
female white-tailed deer, with a 98% confidence level, to within 5
pounds of the actual weight? (Use Excel to find the appropriate
critical...

A sanitation department is interested in estimating the mean
amount of garbage per bin for all bins in the city. In a random
sample of 40 bins, the sample mean amount was 51.5 pounds and the
sample standard deviation was 3.6 pounds. Construct 95% and 99%
confidence intervals for the mean amount of garbage per bin for all
bins in the city.
a) What is the lower limit of the 95% interval? Give your answer to
three decimal places.
b)...

An
inspector needs an estimate of the mean weight of trucks crossing a
bridge. She selects a random sample of 25 trucks and finds a mean
of 16 tons with a sample standard deviation of 2 tons. find the 95
percent confidence interval for the population mean.

A doctor at a local hospital is interested in estimating the
birth weight of infants. How large a sample must she select if she
desires to be 95% confident that her estimate is within 2 ounces of
the true mean? Assume that s = 6 ounces based on earlier
studies.

QUESTION 1: A researcher is investigating whether the mean
weight of non-vegetarian women is more than mean weight vegetarian
women. A sample of 30 non-vegetarian women had a mean of 152 pounds
and standard deviation 5 pounds and a sample of 40 vegetarian women
had a mean of 135 pounds and standard deviation 4 pounds.
a) Find and interpret a 95% confidence interval for the
difference between the mean weight of non-vegetarian and vegetarian
women. (You don’t need to show...

3. We are interested in estimating the mean annual income of
adults in Sweetwater County. To accomplish this, we select a random
sample of 65 adults residing in the county. We find that the sample
mean is $47,250, and we know from the previous studies that the
population standard deviation is $3,555. a) Calculate a 95%
confidence interval for the population mean, and interpret the
result. B) Calculate a 99% confidence interval for the population
mean, and interpret the result....
