Question

Suppose you want to know the average amount of sleep you get per
night. You record your elapsed sleep time over 35 nights. The mean
is 7.1 and standard deviation is 2.3. Find a 95% confidence
interval for your mean number of hours of sleep per night. Report
the answer accurate to four decimal places

< μμ <

Answer #1

Solution :

degrees of freedom = n - 1 = 35 - 1 = 34

t/2,df = t0.025,34 = 2.032

Margin of error = E = t/2,df * (s /n)

= 2.032 * ( 2.3 / 35)

Margin of error = E = 0.7900

The 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean is,

- E < < + E

7.1 - 0.7900 < < 7.1 + 0.7900

6.3100 < < 7.8900

A researcher wants to determine how many hours of sleep adults
get per night. She asks a random sample of 32 adults how many hours
of sleep they get per night. The mean of their answers is 7.1
hours, and the standard deviation is 1.5 hours. Make a 95%
confidence interval for the mean number of hours of sleep per night
for adults. Round the end points of the confidence interval to 2
decimal points.

Based on a random sample of 1120 adults, the mean amount of
sleep per night is 8.91 hours. Assuming the population standard
deviation for amount of sleep per night is 3.2 hours, construct
and interpret a 95% confidence interval for the mean amount of
sleep per night.
A 95% confidence interval is (___,___)

Suppose you perform a study about the hours of sleep that
college students get. You know that for all people, the average is
about 7 hours. You randomly select 35 college students and survey
them on their sleep habits. From this sample, the mean number of
hours of sleep is found to be 6.2 hours with a standard deviation
of 0.97 hours. We want to construct a 95% confidence interval for
the mean nightly hours of sleep for all college...

Suppose we want to know the average number of hours of sleep
each night for all students attending colleges and universities in
the US.
We conduct a poll of 2000 students and find the average number
of hours of sleep in the sample is 7.2 hours.
Based on this information, we say that we think the nationwide
average is between 6.0 to 8.4 hours a night.

. The average college student gets 8 hours of sleep a night.
Health services wants to know if UNH students get more or less
sleep than the average student. They sample 46 students and find
that they sleep on average 7 hours a night with a standard
deviation of 1.86.
a.
State the null and alternative hypothesis.
b.
Conduct the most appropriate test.
c.
What do you conclude?
d.
If applicable, what is the 95% confidence interval?

Sleep – College Students: Suppose you perform a
study about the hours of sleep that college students get. You know
that for all people, the average is about 7 hours. You randomly
select 50 college students and survey them on their sleep habits.
From this sample, the mean number of hours of sleep is found to be
6.2 hours with a standard deviation of 0.97 hours. We want to
construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean nightly hours of...

The results of a national survey showed that on average, adults
sleep 7.1 hours per night. Suppose that the standard deviation is
1.5 hours and that the number of hours of sleep follows a
bell-shaped distribution. If needed, round your answers to two
decimal digits. If your answer is negative use “minus sign”.

individuals who sleep between 4.1 and 10.1 hours per day.
Enter your answer as a percentage.

How much sleep do you get on a typical school night? A group of
10 college students were asked to report the number of hours that
they slept on the previous night with the following results.

(a)
Find a 99% confidence interval for the average number of hours that
college students sleep.

A survey was conducted to determine whether hours of sleep per
night are independent of age. A sample of individuals was asked to
indicate the number of hours of sleep per night with categorical
options: fewer than 6 hours, 6 to 6.9 hours, 7 to 7.9 hours, and 8
hours or more. Later in the survey, the individuals were asked to
indicate their age with categorical options: age 39 or younger and
age 40 or older. Sample data follow.
