Question

A study conducted several years ago reported that 24 percent of university graduates applied for an MBA degree within 2 years of graduation . The Council of Higher Education would like to update the study. They would like to estimate the population proportion of university graduates who applied for an MBA degree within 2 years of graduation with a margin of error of 2% and a 99% level of confidence. (Round your z value to 3 decimals. Round up your answers to the next whole number.)

To update this study, the files of how many graduates should be studied?(sample size)

Answer #1

Solution,

Given that,

= 24% = 0.24

1 - = 1 - 0.24 = 0.76

Margin of error = E = 2% = 0.02

At 99% confidence level

= 1 - 99%

= 1 - 0.99 =0.01

/2
= 0.005

Z/2 =
Z0.005 = 2.576

Sample size = n = (Z / 2 / E )2 * * (1 - )

= ( 2.576 / 0.02 )2 * 0.24 * 0.76

= 3025.91

**Sample size = n = 3026**

Business Week conducted a survey of graduates from 30
top MBA programs (Business Week, September 22, 2003). The
survey found that the average annual salary for male and female
graduates 10 years after graduation was $168,000 and $117,000,
respectively. Assume the population standard deviation for the male
graduates is $40,000, and for the female graduates it is
$25,000.
When calculating values for z, round to two decimal places.
What is the probability that a simple random sample of 40 male...

simple random sample of 70 graduates.
Find the probability that a single randomly selected policy has a
mean value between 153848.5 and 170892.5 dollars.

7. A prospective study was conducted many years ago on a sample
of young women in Nebraska, to determine if there was an
association between cigarette smoking during pregnancy and the
incidence of miscarriages. Of the 385 mothers, 50 reported smoking
cigarettes during pregnancy, and 10 of these had miscarriages. A
total of 25 miscarriages occurred altogether. Assuming that the
smoking and non-smoking subgroups were similar with regard to other
factors and study was not biased, the relative risk (RR)...

In a recent marketing study, a demographic item asked

with a bachelor’s degree; and anything higher than 16 would
indicate graduate work. Below are the answers from the 12
individuals who responded.
