Question

Among various ethnic groups, the standard deviation of heights
is known to be approximately three inches. We wish to construct a
95% confidence interval for the mean height of males from sweden.
Forty-eight males are surveyed from sweden. The sample mean is
71inches. The sample standard deviation is 2.8 inches.

1. what is the population standard deviation?

2.8 inches 3.0 inches 71 inches

2. what is the error bound margin?

.50 .80 1.00

3. what is the confidence level for the interval?

90% 95% 99%

4. what is the sample size?

40 44 48

5. what is the lower bound of the confidence interval?

70.2 71 71.8

6. what is the correct conclusion?

with 95% confidence, the population mean falls between 71.0
and 71.8 inches

with 95% confidence, the population mean falls between 70.2
and 71.8 inches

with 95% confidence, the population mean falls between 70.2
and 71.0 inches

7. what is the sample mean?

2.8 inches 3.0 inches 71 inches

8. what is the upper bound of the confidence interval?

70.2 71 71.8

Answer #1

1. what is the population standard deviation?

3.0 inches

2. what is the error bound margin?

0.80

3. what is the confidence level for the interval?

95%

4. what is the sample size?

48

5. what is the lower bound of the confidence interval?

70.2

6. what is the correct conclusion?

with 95% confidence, the population mean falls between 70.2 and 71.8 inches

7. what is the sample mean?

71 inches

8. what is the upper bound of the confidence interval?

71.8

71.00 | mean 1 |

2.80 | std. dev. |

0.40 | std. error |

48 | n |

47 | df |

70.2 | confidence interval 95.% lower |

71.8 | confidence interval 95.% upper |

0.81 | margin of error |

Please give me a thumbs-up if this helps you out. Thank you!

Among various ethnic groups, the standard deviation of heights
is known to be approximately three inches. We wish to construct a

Heights of adult males are approximately normally distributed
with a mean of 66.6 inches and a standard deviation of 1.9 inches.
If a sample of 50 adult males are chosen, what is the probability
their mean height will be between 67 inches and 67.4 inches?
Report your answer to four decimal places.

The heights (in inches) of the students on a campus have a
normal distribution with a population standard deviation σ =5
inches. Suppose we want to construct a 95% confidence interval for
the population mean height and have it accurate to within 0.5
inches. What is the required minimum sample size?

Suppose the heights of 18-year-old men are approximately
normally distributed, with mean 71 inches and standard deviation 4
inches. If a random sample of twenty-eight 18-year-old men is
selected, what is the probability that the mean height x is between
70 and 72 inches?

Suppose that the distance of fly balls hit to the outfield (in
baseball) is normally distributed with a mean of 248 feet and a
standard deviation of 54 feet. We randomly sample 49 fly balls.

the distribution of X. Round your standard deviation to two decimal
places.
