Question

A fitness center is interested in finding a 98% confidence interval for the mean number of days per week that Americans who are members of a fitness club go to their fitness center. Records of 240 members were looked at and their mean number of visits per week was 3.3 and the standard deviation was 1.8. Round answers to 3 decimal places where possible.

a. To compute the confidence interval use a

distribution.

b. With 98% confidence the population mean number of visits per week is between and visits.

c. If many groups of 240 randomly selected members are studied, then a different confidence interval would be produced from each group. About percent of these confidence intervals will contain the true population mean number of visits per week and about percent will not contain the true population mean number of visits per week.

Answer #1

a)

t-distribution

b)

sample mean, xbar = 3.3

sample standard deviation, s = 1.8

sample size, n = 240

degrees of freedom, df = n - 1 = 239

Given CI level is 98%, hence α = 1 - 0.98 = 0.02

α/2 = 0.02/2 = 0.01, tc = t(α/2, df) = 2.342

CI = (xbar - tc * s/sqrt(n) , xbar + tc * s/sqrt(n))

CI = (3.3 - 2.342 * 1.8/sqrt(240) , 3.3 + 2.342 *
1.8/sqrt(240))

CI = (3.028 , 3.572)

c)

If many groups of 240 randomly selected members are studied, then a
different confidence interval would be produced from each group.
About 98% percent of these confidence intervals will contain the
true population mean number of visits per week and about 2% percent
will not contain the true population mean number of visits per
week.
