Question

Confidence interval for the population mean using random sampling.

I work with 6 other people in an office, all of which are in different stages of life, some with family, some not. Some older, some younger, kids/no kids, and so on.

I asked them how many times weekly that they go to the grocery store.

Person 1 - 5 times

Person 2 - 1 time

Person 3 - 0 times

Person 4 - 2 Times

Person 5 - 1 Time

Person 6 - 1 Time

Population mean would be - 1.6666 (If I figured correctly)

Confidence interval - 99%

What is the solution?

Answer #1

The mean you figured out is not population mean , rather sample mean

The sample standard is given by

The confidence interval for the population mean is given by

Here n=6, so number of degrees of freedom is 6-1=5, Also

Thus, from t table we have

Using the values we have the interval as

Write a confidence interval problem using one of the options
below.
Think about a population mean that you may be interested in and
propose a confidence interval problem for this parameter. Your data
values should be approximately normal.
30 random households were given a survey and asked how many
times a month each household went grocery shopping (confidence
interval for the population mean is 95%). The following answers
were given:
1 Time- 1
2 Times- 3
3 Times- 3
4...

Construct the indicated confidence interval for the population
mean of each data set. If it is possible to construct a confidence
interval, justify the distribution you used. If it is not possible,
explain why.

Construct the indicated confidence interval for the population
mean μ using the t-distribution. Assume the population is normally
distributed.

____________.(Round to one decimal place as needed.)

Assuming that the population is normally distributed, construct
a 95% confidence interval for the population mean for each of the
samples below. Explain why these two samples produce different
confidence intervals even though they have the same mean and
range.

Assuming that the population is normally distributed, construct
a 95% confidence interval for the population mean, based on the
following sample size of n=8.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 16
In the given data, replace the value 16 with 8 and recalculate
the confidence interval. Using these results, describe the effect
of an outlier (that is, an extreme value) on the confidence
interval, in general.
Find a 95% confidence interval for the population mean, using

Think about a population mean that you may be interested in and
propose a confidence interval problem for this parameter. Your data
values should be approximately normal.
For example, you may want to estimate the population mean number
of times that adults go out for dinner each week. Your data could
be that you spoke with seven people you know and found that they
went out 1, 4, 2, 3, 2, 0, and 5 times last week. You then would...
