Question

**Calculate a 90% for ?, however assume that we do not
know ?. Explain how we can workaround this problem. Must include
your point estimate, the confidence coeffcient, and the standard
error ofX.**

C.I = 90%

**N = 35**

**?Xbar = ? = 16477.64**

**?Xbar = 379.905289**

**Was the confidence interval successful in capturing the
true population mean?**

Suppose we know that the population standard deviation for wages
(σ) is $15. A random sample of n = 900 results in a sample mean
wage of $50. (10 points)
Provide 95% confidence interval estimate of µ. Interpret the
result. What is the value of the margin of error?

7. A car dealership would like to estimate the mean mpg of
its new model car with 90% confidence. The population is normally
distributed; however we are taking a sample of 25 cars with a
sample mean of 96.52 and a sample standard deviation of 10.70.
Calculate a 90% confidence interval for the population mean using
this sample data.

Problems 1-5: We want to know the true proportion of students
that are ok with online courses. We take a sample of 120 students,
and 72 said they are ok with online courses. We want to create a
95% confidence interval. Answer the questions below:
1) What is the point estimate for the population proportion?
2) What is the standard error?
3) What is the z score for 95% confidence?
4) What is a 95% confidence interval for this data?...

Suppose we are interested in analyzing the weights of NFL
players. We know that on average, NFL players weigh 247 pounds with
a population standard deviation of 47 pounds. Suppose we take a
sample of 30 new players and we find that the average weight from
that sample is 237 pounds. We are interested in seeing if the
weight of NFL players is decreasing

3. We are interested in estimating the mean annual income of
adults in Sweetwater County. To accomplish this, we select a random
sample of 65 adults residing in the county. We find that the sample
mean is $47,250, and we know from the previous studies that the
population standard deviation is $3,555. a) Calculate a 95%
confidence interval for the population mean, and interpret the
result. B) Calculate a 99% confidence interval for the population
mean, and interpret the result....

1.) A back-of-the-envelope calculation for a 95% CI for the
population mean mu is
[xbar - 2*SE , xbar + 2*SE]
where xbar is the sample mean and SE is the standard error
of the sample mean. When xbar = 3.1 and SE 1.5,
what is the left end point of a back-of-the-envelope 95%
confidence interval for the population mean?

Suppose we are interested in how well people do on a
standardized test when they take it for a second time. In a random
sample of 400 students who took the test for a second time,
students gained an average of X-bar = 12 points. Let’s say that the
sample comes from a population with σ = 42. The 95% confidence
interval for μ (the mean point gain) is:
μ = 12 ± (1.96) (42/√400) = 12 ± 4.12

Assume that a sample is used to estimate a population proportion
p. Find the 90% confidence interval for a sample of size
248 with 84 successes. Enter your answer as an
open-interval (i.e., parentheses) using
decimals (not percents) accurate to three decimal places.
90% C.I. = _______________________
Answer should be obtained without any preliminary rounding.
However, the critical value may be rounded to 3 decimal places.
