Question

The retail advertising and marketing association would like to estimate the average amount of money that a person spends for Mother’s Day with a 95% confidence interval in a margin of error within plus or -6 dollars. Assuming a standard deviation for spending on Mother’s Day is $36. The required sample is

Answer #1

Solution

standard deviation = =$36

Margin of error = E = $6

At 95% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 95% = 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

/ 2 = 0.05 / 2 = 0.025

Z/2 = Z0.025 = 1.96

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

n = ( 1.96* 36 / 6 )2

n =138.29

Sample size = n =139

You own a small storefront retail business and are interested in
determining the average amount of money a typical customer spends
per visit to your store. You take a random sample over the course
of a month for 24 customers and find that the average dollar amount
spent per transaction per customer is $80.117 with a standard
deviation of $13.8918. When creating a 95% confidence interval for
the true average dollar amount spend per customer, what is the
margin of...
