Question

In a random sample of 18 people, the mean commute time to work was 33.1 minutes and the standard deviation was 7.2 minutes. Assume the population is normally distributed and use a t-distribution to construct a 98% confidence interval for the population mean mu . What is the margin of error of mu? Interpret the results.

The confidence interval for the population mean mu is:

The margin of error of mu is:

Answer #1

Solution :

degrees of freedom = n - 1 = 18 - 1 = 17

t/2,df
= t_{0.01,17} = 2.567

Margin of error = E = t_{/2,df}
* (s /n)

= 2.567 * ( 7.2 / 18)

Margin of error = E = 4.36

The 98% confidence interval estimate of the population mean is,

± E

= 33.1 ± 4.36

= ( 28.74, 37.46 )

We are 98% confidence that the true mean commute time to work was between 28.74 and 37.46 minutes.

In a random sample of 8 people, the mean commute time to work
was 35.5 minutes and the standard deviation was 7.2 minutes. A 95%
confidence interval using the t-distribution was calculated to be
left parenthesis 29.5 comma 41.5 right parenthesis. After
researching commute times to work, it was found that the
population standard deviation is 9.2 minutes. Find the margin of
error and construct a 95% confidence interval using the standard
normal distribution with the appropriate calculations for a...
