Question

Thirty randomly selected students took the calculus final. If the sample mean was 77 and the standard deviation was 11.9, construct a 99% confidence interval for the mean score of all students. Round your answer in 2 decimal places

Answer #1

z @ 99.0% = 2.5758

Since we know that

Required confidence interval = (77.0-2.5758(2.1726),
77.0+2.5758(2.1726))

Required confidence interval = (77.0 - 5.5963, 77.0 + 5.5963)

Required confidence interval = (71.40, 82.60)

**Interpretion:** We are 99.0% confident that the
true mean of the population lie between the interval 71.40 and
82.60.

A class of two hundred students took a calculus final. If the
sample mean for thirty randomly selected students was 95 percent
with a (sample) standard deviation of 6.6 percent, construct a 99%
confidence interval for the mean score of all students. Show all
work, including the formula you are using.

16 students were randomly selected from a large group of
students taking a certain calculus test. The mean score for the
students in the sample was 86 and the standard deviation was 1.3.
Assume that the scores are normally distributed. Construct a 98%
confidence interval for the mean score, μ, of all students taking
the test. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Use the given degree of confidence and sample data to construct
a confidence interval for the population mean μ. Assume that the
population has a normal distribution. Thirty randomly selected
students took the calculus final. If the sample mean was 90 and the
standard deviation s = 6.7, construct a 99% confidence interval for
the mean score of all students

16 students were randomly selected from a large group of
students taking a certain calculus test. The mean score for the
students in the sample was 86 and the standard deviation was 1.2.
Assume that the scores are normally distributed. Construct a 98%
confidence interval for the mean score, μ, of all students taking
the test. Round your answer to two decimal places.
a- (85.30 , 86.70)
b- (85.22 , 86.78)
c- (85.36 , 86.64)
d- (85.28 , 86.72)

Thirty items are randomly selected from a population of 320
items. The sample mean is 29, and the sample standard deviation 3.
Develop a 80% confidence interval for the population mean.
(Round the t-value to 3 decimal places. Round the
final answers to 2 decimal places.)
The confidence interval is between and

Use the given degree of confidence and sample data to construct
a confidence interval for the population mean μ. Assume that the
population has a normal distribution. Thirty randomly selected
students took the calculus final. If the sample mean was 95 and the
standard deviation was 6.6, construct a 99% confidence interval
for the mean score of all students.
A.92.95 <μ <97.05
B.92.03 <μ <97.97
C.91.69 <μ <98.31
D.91.68 <μ <98.32

thirty-one randomly selected students scores on the test in MTH
243 were recorded. This sample had a mean of 73 and a standard
deviation of 8.4. Construct a 98% confidence interval for the mean
score of all students MTH 243 test score. (round all values to
three decimal places)

A sample of 14 randomly selected students have a sample mean
score of 27.6 with a sample standard deviation of 5.1 on a
placement test. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean
score, !, of all students taking the test.

A laboratory tested 89 chicken eggs and found that the mean
amount of cholesterol was 192 milligrams. Assume that sigma equals
