Question

A company wants to estimate the mean length the machine is cutting the plastic within 0.125 inch. Determine the minimum sample size required to construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean. Assume the population standard deviation is 0.25 inch.?

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

Population standard deviation = = 0.25

Margin of error = E = 0.125

At 95% confidence level the z is,

= 1 - 95%

= 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

/2 = 0.025

Z/2 = Z0.025 = 1.96

sample size = n = [Z/2* / E] 2

n = [ 1.96 * 0.25 / 0.125 ]2

n = 15

**Sample size = n =
15**

A soccer ball manufacturer wants to estimate the mean
circumference of soccer balls within 0.14 inch.
(a) Determine the minimum sample size required to construct a
99% confidence interval for the population mean. Assume the
population standard deviation is 0.7 inch.
(b) The sample mean is 27.2 inches. With a sample size of 175,

Find the minimum sample size for the following: A soccer ball
manufacturer wants to estimate the mean circumference of soccer
balls to within 0.2 of an inch. Determine the minimum sample size
required to have the 90% confident interval for the population
parameter μ. Assume the population standard deviation is 0.3
inches.
Please show all work or if you used a TI 84 please explain the
necessary steps to get the answer, thank you for the help :)
