Question

Please answer with proper steps -

Suppose that a random sample of size n is drawn from a population with mean µ = 220 and standard deviation σ = 20.

i. Determine the required sample size such that the standard error of the sample mean is reduced to less than 3. [2 marks]

ii. Determine the required sample size if we want to be 90% confident that the maximum error is 5.

Answer #1

(i)

the standard error of the sample mean is given by:

Substituting values, w get:

So, we get:

= 45 (Round to integer)

So,

Answer is:

**45**

(ii)

Sample Size (n) is given by:

Given:

= 0.10

From Table, critical values of Z = 1.645

= 20

e = 5

Substituting values, we get:

= 44 (Round to integer)

Answer is:

**44**

Q.6. (a) A random sample is drawn from a population
with a known standard deviation of 2.0. Find the standard error
(SE) of the sample mean if the sample size is (i) 16, (ii) 36,
(iii) 81.
(b) If the size of sample is 36 and the standard error of the mean
is 2, what should be the size of the sample if the standard error
is reduced to 1.2?
