Question

Each car in a sample of seven cars was tested for nitrogen-oxide emissions (in grams per mile), and the following results were obtained.

0.050.05,

0.110.11,

0.170.17,

0.150.15,

0.140.14,

0.070.07,

0.150.15

a. Assuming that this sample is representative of cars in use, construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean amount of nitrogen-oxide emissions for all cars.

(Round to the nearest thousandth as needed.)

Answer #1

Each car in a sample of seven cars was tested for
nitrogen-oxide emissions (in grams per mile), and the following
results were obtained. 0.08, 0.11, 0.16, 0.13, 0.12, 0.08,
0.13 a. Assuming that this sample is representative of cars in
use, construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean
amount of nitrogen-oxide emissions for all cars.

In a sample of seven cars, each car was tested for
nitrogen-oxide emissions (in grams per mile) and the following
results were obtained: 0.17, 0.13, 0.09, 0.18 ,0.06, 0.14,
0.09 . Assuming that this sample is representative of the cars in
use, construct a 98% confidence interval estimate of the mean
amount of nitrogen-oxide emissions for all cars. If the EPA
requires that nitrogen-oxide emissions be less than 0.165 g
divided by mi, can we safely conclude that this requirement...

In a random sample of ten cars, each car was tested for
nitrogen- oxide emissions (in grams per mile) and the results are
listed below.
0.06, 0.11, 0.16, 0.15,
0.14, 0.08, 0.15, 0.12, 0.09, 0.1
a. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean amount of
nitrogen-oxide emissions in all cars.
b. Interpret your confidence interval in context of the
problem.

Carbon emissions are being tested for 2 brands of cars. 53 cars
of brand A emitted an average of 435 grams per mile with a standard
deviation of 6.8 grams per mile. 45 cars of brand B emitted an
average 430 grams per mile with a standard deviation of 8.6 grams
per mile.
a) Find the 95% confidence interval of the difference between
emissions of the 2 brands
b) Can you conclude brand A has higher emissions at 1% significance...

1)The level of nitrogen oxides (NOX) in the exhaust of cars of a
particular model varies Normally with standard deviation σ=0.05
grams per mile (g/mi). Government regulations call for NOX
emissions no higher than 0.3 g/mi. A random sample of 12 cars of
this particular model is taken and is found to have a mean NOX
emission of 0.298 g/mi. What is a 90% confidence interval for the
mean NOX emission μ of this particular model?

You are given the sample mean and the population standard
deviation. Use this information to construct the 90% and 95%
confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results
and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. If convenient,
use technology to construct the confidence intervals.
A random sample of 60 home theater systems has a mean price of
$147.00. Assume the population standard deviation is $19.40.
Construct a 90% confidence interval for the population mean.

An automotive manufacturer wants to know the proportion of new
car buyers who prefer foreign cars over domestic.
Step 1: Suppose a sample of 958 new car buyers is drawn. Of
those sampled, 383 preferred foreign over domestic cars. Using the
data, estimate the proportion of new car buyers who prefer foreign
cars. Enter your answer as a fraction or a decimal number rounded
to three decimal places.
Step 2: Suppose a sample of 958 new car buyers is drawn....

The table below contains the amount that a sample of nine
customers spent for lunch ($) at a fast-food restaurant. Complete
parts a and b below.
4.87 5.08 5.84 6.14 7.32 7.58 8.22 8.67 9.33
a. Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate for the
population mean amount spent for lunch at a fast-food restaurant,
assuming a normal distribution. The % confidence interval estimate
is from $??? to $???. (Round to two decimal places as
needed.)
b. Interpret the interval constructed...

A NAPA Auto Parts supplier wants information about how long car
owner plan to keep their cars. A random sample of 35 car owners
results in
a sample average of 7.01 years and a standard deviations of 3.74
years. Assume that the sample is drawn from a normally distributed
population.

As part of a survey, a marketing representative asks a random
sample of 29 business owners how much they would be willing to pay
for a website for their company. She finds that the sample standard
deviation is $3288. Assume the sample is taken from a normally
distributed population. Construct 95% confidence intervals for
(a) the population variance sigmasquared and (b) the population
standard deviation sigma. Interpret the results. (a) The
confidence interval for the population variance is ( nothing,...
