Question

Assume that you want to construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of a population mean. Find an estimate of the sample size needed to obtain the specified margin of error for the 95% confidence interval. The sample standard deviation is given below.

Margin of errors=$6,

standard deviation=$22

The required sample size is __

Answer #1

Standard deviation =$22

Margin of error =E=$6

Level of significance = 1-0.95=0.05

Z critical value is (by using Z table)=1.96

Sample size formula is

=51.65

You want to construct a 95% confidence interval to estimate an
unknown population proportion with a margin of error of ±2%. What
is the minimum necessary sample size that you should obtain?

You want to construct a confidence interval for the mean number
of taste buds in top chefs. Assume the population standard
deviation is 900.
(a) Calculate the minimum required sample size if you want a
margin of error no greater than 300 at the 95% confidence
level.
The minimum sample size is ___ chefs.
(b) What will cause the minimum required sample size to
increase?
increasing the confidence level
increasing the acceptable margin of error
decreasing the acceptable margin of...

A manager wishes to estimate a population mean using a 95%
confidence interval estimate that has a margin of error of
±44.0 If the population standard deviation is thought to be
610, what is the required sample size?

(S 9.2) Recall that a confidence interval for the sample mean
can be calculated using the interval
x¯?tn?1?sn??????x¯+tn?1?sn???
Thus, the margin of error is
tn?1?sn???
We can recover the margin of error from an interval constructed
on the calculator using algebra.
Suppose a random sample of size 16 was taken from a normally
distributed population, and the sample standard deviation was
calculated to be s = 6.3. We'll assume the sample mean is
10 for convenience.
a) Calculate the margin...

How's the economy? A pollster wants to construct a 95 %
confidence interval for the proportion of adults who believe that
economic conditions are getting better.
(a) A poll taken in July 2010 estimates this proportion to be
0.41 . Using this estimate, what sample size is needed so that the
confidence interval will have a margin of error of 0.02 ?
(b) Estimate the sample size needed if no estimate of p is
available. Part 1 of 2
(a)...
