Question

In a large city, we are trying to estimate the percentage of college enrollment among all people of age between 18 and 24. (So our population is people of age between 18 and 24 in this city.) We take a simple random sample of 192 from this population. In this sample, we find that 77 are enrolled in college. Find a 95% confidence interval for the rate of college enrollment in the population. (Only enter the upper limit as your answer and include 2 digits after the decimal point.)

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

Point estimate = sample proportion = = x / n = 77 / 192 = 0.401

1 - = 1 - 0.401 = 0.599

Z/2 = Z0.025 = 1.96

Margin of error = E = Z / 2 * (( * (1 - )) / n)

= 1.96 (((0.401 * 0.599) / 192)

= 0.069

A 95% upper limit confidence interval for population proportion p is ,

+ E

= 0.401 + 0.069 = 0.332

upper limit = 0.33

In a large city, we are trying to estimate the percentage of
college enrollment among all people of age between 18 and 24. (So
our population is people of age between 18 and 24 in this city.) We
take a simple random sample of 197 from this population. In this
sample, we find that 76 are enrolled in college. Find a 95%

A simple random sample of 1600 persons is taken to estimate the
percentage of Democrats among 25000 eligible voters in a certain
town. It turns out that 856 people in the sample are Democrats. We
can be 95 percent confident that between percent and percent of the
voters are Democrats.

A simple random sample of 1600 persons is taken to estimate the

Let us assume that we randomly choose a sample of 144 people.
51% of people from our sample reported having voted for candidate A
in the 2004 election. Using this sample, find 95% confidence
interval for the population proportion of those who voted for this
candidate. Round to three digits.
Lower end of confidence interval:
Upper end of confidence interval:

The mean age for all Foothill College students for a recent Fall
term was 33.2. The population standard deviation has been pretty
consistent at 15. Suppose that twenty-five Winter students were
randomly selected. The mean age for the sample was 30.4. We are
interested in the true mean age for Winter Foothill College
students. Let X = the age of a Winter Foothill College student.
A. Construct a 95% Confidence Interval for the true mean age of
Winter Foothill College...

Sleep – College Students: Suppose you perform a
study about the hours of sleep that college students get. You know
that for all people, the average is about 7 hours. You randomly
select 50 college students and survey them on their sleep habits.
From this sample, the mean number of hours of sleep is found to be
6.2 hours with a standard deviation of 0.97 hours. We want to
construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean nightly hours of...

We are managing a large soy bean farm. To estimate our revenues
for the coming year, we need to estimate our crop yield. Soy bean
yields are measured by pods/plant. We are planning for a yield of
40 pods/plant. We take a random sample of 64 soy bean plants and
get a sample yield of 42.8 pods/plant with a sample standard
deviation of 12.0 pods/plant.
Use Minitab to find the correct t multiplier,
then compute by hand a 95% confidence...
