Question

A random sample of 130 adult males was selected as part of a study on weight loss. The average weight at the beginning of the study was 265 pounds with a standard deviation of 22 pounds. Assuming the weight is normally distributed, provide a 99% confidence interval for the mean weight at the start of the study. You MUST show your work to receive full credit.

A random sample of 30 households was selected as part of a study
on electricity usage, and
the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) was recorded for each household
in the sample for the
March quarter of 2006. The average usage was found to be 375kWh. In
a very large study in the
March quarter of the previous year it was found that the standard
deviation of the usage was
81kWh. Assuming the standard deviation is unchanged and that the
usage is...

A random sample of 45 households was selected as part of a study
on electricity usage., and the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) was
recoded for each household. The average usage was found to be 375
kWh. The population standard deviation is given as 51 KWh Assuming
the usage is normally distributed, find the margin of error for a
99% confidence interval for the mean. [3 marks] 12.5 14.9 19.6

A random sample of 30 households was selected as part of a study
on electricity usage, and the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) was
recorded for each household in the sample for the last quarter of
2010. The average usage was found to be 450 kWh. In a very large
study in the last quarter of the previous year, it was found that
the standard deviation of the usage was 81 kWh. Assuming that the
standard deviation is unchanged and that...

Assume the weight of adult males is normally
distributed. The following weight of adult males in lbs taken in a
recent study.

Obesity is a topic of ongoing health
concern. A random sample of 25 adult males were examined and found
to be an average of 18 pounds overweight, with a standard deviation
of 10 pounds. These results will be used to address the following
statistical question: Do these results provide evidence that, on
average, adult males are overweight more than the 15 pounds
reported by a television documentary?

A sample of 7 adult elephants has an average weight of
12,800 pounds. the standard deviation for the sample was 21
pounds.find the 99% confidence interval of the population mean for
the weight of adult elephants.assume the value is normally
distributed. use a graphing calculator and round up answer to the
nearest whole number.

Assume a 2015 Gallup Poll asked a national random sample of 482
adult women to state their current weight. Assume the mean weight
in the sample was ?¯=164. We will treat these data as an SRS from a
normally distributed population with standard deviation ?=36
pounds. Give a 90% confidence interval for the mean weight of adult
women based on these data. Enter the upper and lower values of your
confidence interval into the spaces provided rounded to two decimal...

In a random sample of 678 adult males 20 to 34 years of age, it
was determined that 58 of them have hypertension(high blood
pressure). a) what conditions must be checked in order to calculate
a 96% confidence interval? b) Construct a 96% confidence for the
proportion of adult males 20 to 34 years of age who have
hypertension. Round the endpoints to 3 decimal places. c) If we
wish to conduct our own study to determine the proportion of...

A
simple random sample of electronic components will be selected to
test for the mean lifetime in hours. Assume that component
lifetimes are normally distributed with population standard
deviation of 31 hours. How many components must be sampled so that
a 99% confidence interval will have margin of error of 6 hours?
Write only an integer as your answer.

A random sample of 17 adult male wolves from the Canadian
Northwest Territories gave an average weight x1 = 97.4 pounds with
estimated sample standard deviation s1 = 5.5 pounds. Another sample
of 22 adult male wolves from Alaska gave an average weight x2 =
89.6 pounds with estimated sample standard deviation s2 = 6.9
pounds. Please show all steps in getting the answer. Thanks
