Question

determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be 95% confident that the sample mean is within 1.4 unites of the population mean. Assume that the population is normally distributed with standard deviation σ = 4.7

1. whats the critical value?

2. whats the margin of error?

3. whats the sample size?

Answer #1

Solution

standard deviation = =4.7

Margin of error = E = 1.4

At 95% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 95% = 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

/ 2 = 0.05 / 2 = 0.025

Z_{/2}
= Z_{0.025} = 1.96 ( Using z table ( see the 0.025 value in
standard normal (z) table corresponding z value is 1.96 )

sample size = n = [Z_{/2}*
/ E] ^{2}

n = ( 1.96*4.7 / 1.4 )^{2}

n =43.29

Sample size = n =43

Determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be
95% confident that the sample mean is within 1.2 unites of the
population mean. Assume that the population is normally distributed
with standard deviation σ = 4.8.

Determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be
99% confident that the sample mean is within 0.50 units of the
population mean. Assume a population standard deviation of 1.4 in a

Determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be
95% confident that the sample mean is within one unit of the
population mean and sigma=19.1. Assume the population is normally

Determine the minimum sample size required when you want to be
95% confident that the sample mean is within one unit of the
population mean and sigmaequals13.7. Assume the population is
normally distributed. A 95 % confidence level requires a sample
size of nothing. (Round up to the nearest whole number as
needed.)

Assume that a population data is normally distributed with
standard deviation of 1.4. Determine the minimum sample size
required when you want to be 99% confident that the sample mean is
within two units of the population mean.

If you want to be 95% confident when estimating the population
mean to within a sampling error of ± 20 and the standard deviation
is assumed to be 100, what sample size is required?

If you want to be 95% confident of estimating the population
mean to within a sampling error of plus or minus ± 35 and the
standard deviation is assumed to be 175, what sample size is
required?

If you want to be 95% confident of estimating the population
mean to within a sampling error of plus or minus 6 and the standard
deviation is assumed to be 20, what sample size is required?
The sample size required is __
