Question

A researcher wishes to estimate the number of days it takes an automobile dealer to sell a Ferrari 458. A random sample of 50 cars had a mean time on the dealer’s lot of 54 days. Assume the population standard deviation to be 6.0 days.

1. Find the best point estimate of the population mean.

DAYS. (Round answer to two decimal places)

2. Find the margin of error for the 95% confidence level.

DAYS. (Round answer to two decimal places)

3. Find the 95% confidence interval for the population mean. ((Round answer to two decimal places)

≤ µ ≤

4. What sample size is needed, at the 95% confidence level, to ensure an error of no more than 1 day?

n = (must be a whole number)

Answer #1

n = 50

Sample mean =

Population standard deviation =

1) Best point estimate of the population mean is always a sample mean.

**Best point estimate of the population mean is
54**

2)

Confidence level = c = 0.95

Margin of error (e) :

Where zc is z critical value for (1+c)/2 = (1+0.95)/2 = 0.975

zc = 1.96

e = 1.66 (Round to 2 decimal)

**Margin of error = 1.66**

3)

95% confidence interval for the population mean is

(Round to 2 decimal)

**95% confidence interval for the population mean
is**

4)

Confidence level = c = 0.95

zc is z critical value for (1+c)/2 = (1+0.95)/2 = 0.975

zc = 1.96

e = margin of error = 1

Sample size (n) :

n = 138 (Round to nearest whole number)

**Sample size = 138**

You need to estimate the mean number of travel days per year for
outside salespeople. The mean of a small pilot study was 140 days,
with a standard deviation of 15 days. If you must estimate the
population mean within 3 days, how many outside salespeople should
you sample? Use the 99% confidence level. (Round the
intermediate calculation to 3 decimal places. Round the final
answer to the nearest whole
number.)
Number of outside salespeople

You need to estimate the mean number of travel days per year for
outside salespeople. The mean of a small pilot study was 160 days,
with a standard deviation of 19 days. If you must estimate the
population mean within 2 days, how many outside salespeople should
you sample? Use the 98% confidence level. (Round the intermediate
calculation to 3 decimal places. Round the final answer to the
nearest whole number.) Number of outside salespeople

You need to estimate the mean number of travel days per year for
outside salespeople. The mean of a small pilot study was 140 days,
with a standard deviation of 11 days. If you must estimate the
population mean within 4 days, how many outside salespeople should
you sample? Use the 99% confidence level. (Round the
intermediate calculation to 3 decimal places. Round the final
answer to the nearest whole
number.)
Number of outside salespeople

There are a large number of individuals working at a certain
factory. Julie wishes to obtain a 95% confidence interval estimate
for the true mean age of all of the workers by obtaining a random
sample of 114 workers. If she knows that the population standard
deviation is 17.3 years, what will the margin of error be? (Round
to 2 decimal places.)

A researcher wishes to see if the average number of sick days a
worker takes per year is greater than 5. A random sample of 32
workers at a large department store had a mean of 5.6. Assume the
population standard deviation is 1.2. Test the claim that the
average number of sick days a worker takes per year is more than 5.
Use a 0.01 significance level.
a)State the claim and opposite symbolically.
b) State the Null and alternate...

A researcher wishes to estimate the average number of minutes
per day a person spends on the Internet. How large a sample must
she select if she wishes to be 99% confident that the population
mean is within 10 minutes of the sample mean? Assume the population
standard deviation is 42 minutes. Round your final answer up to the
next whole number

A researcher wishes to estimate the average number of minutes
per day a person spends on the Internet. How large a sample must
she select if she wishes to be 90% confident that the population
mean is within 11 minutes of the sample mean? Assume the population
standard deviation is 40 minutes. Round your final answer up to the
next whole number.

The mean number of sick days an employee takes per year is
believed to be about 10. Members of a personnel department do not
believe this figure. They randomly survey 8 employees. The number
of sick days they took for the past year are as follows: 10; 5; 15;
5; 9; 10; 6; 9. Let X = the number of sick days they took
for the past year. Should the personnel team believe that the mean
number is about 10?...

A botanist wishes to estimate the typical number of seeds for a
certain fruit. She samples 60 specimens and counts the number of
seeds in each. Use her sample results (mean = 57.3, standard
deviation = 11.5) to find the 95% confidence interval for the
number of seeds for the species. Enter your answer as an
open-interval (i.e., parentheses)
accurate to 3 decimal places.
95% C.I. =

A manager wishes to estimate a population mean using a 95%
confidence interval estimate that has a margin of error of
±44.0 If the population standard deviation is thought to be
610, what is the required sample size?
