Assume the sample is taken from a normally distributed population. Construct 95​% confidence intervals for​ (a) the population variance sigmasquared and​ (b) the population standard deviation sigma. ​

(a) The confidence interval for the population variance is ​( nothing​, nothing​). ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.) Interpret the results.

Select the correct choice below and fill in the answer​ box(es) to complete your choice. ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.)

A. With 95​% ​confidence, it can be said that the population variance is between nothing and nothing.

B. With 95​% ​confidence, it can be said that the population variance is less than nothing.

C. With 5​% ​confidence, it can be said that the population variance is between nothing and nothing.

D. With 5​% ​confidence, it can be said that the population variance is greater than nothing. ​

(b) The confidence interval for the population standard deviation is ​( nothing​, nothing​). ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.) Interpret the results.

Select the correct choice below and fill in the answer​ box(es) to complete your choice. ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.)

A. With 95​% ​confidence, you can say that the population standard deviation is between nothing and nothing hours of reserve capacity.

B. With 5​% ​confidence, you can say that the population standard deviation is between nothing and nothing hours of reserve capacity.

C. With 95​% ​confidence, you can say that the population standard deviation is less than nothing hours of reserve capacity.

D. With 5​% ​confidence, you can say that the population standard deviation is greater than nothing hours of reserve capacity.

Solution :-

For the given data, we have :

n = 10, s = 0.2257 is the sample standard deviation,

construct 95% confidence intrvals for (a) the population variance and (b) the population standard deviation.

Answer : The 95% confidence interval for the population variance is:

where :

is the chi-sqaure critical value at 0.05 significance level for df = n - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9.

Is the chi-square critical value at 0.975 significance level for df = n - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9.

Therefore, the 95% confidence interval for the population variance is (0.024, 0.170)

Interpret the resultes.

Answer : A. with 95% confidence, it can be said that the population variance is between 0.024 and 0.170.
