Question

Suppose you work for Fender Guitar Company and you are responsible for testing the integrity of a new formulation of guitar strings. To perform your analysis, you randomly select 52 'high E' strings and put them into a machine that simulates string plucking thousands of times per minute. You record the number of plucks each string takes before failure and compile a dataset. You find that the average number of plucks is 6,143.3 with a standard deviation of 266.95. A 90% confidence interval for the average number of plucks to failure is (6,081.3, 6,205.3). From the option listed below, what is the appropriate interpretation of this interval? Question 2 options:

1) We are certain that 90% of the average number of plucks to failure for all 'high E' strings will be between 6,081.3 and 6,205.3.

2) We are 90% confident that the average number of plucks to failure for all 'high E' strings is between 6,081.3 and 6,205.3.

3) We are 90% confident that the proportion of all 'high E' guitar strings fail with a rate between 6,081.3 and 6,205.3.

4) We cannot determine the proper interpretation of this interval.

5) We are 90% confident that the average number of plucks to failure for all 'high E' strings tested is between 6,081.3 and 6,205.3.

Answer #1

option 1, 3, 4 and 5 are incorrect option 1 is including "certain" which is incorrect for confidence interval, option 3 is using the "proportion" which is also incorrect, option 4 is showing incorrect statement and option 5 is incorrect because it is showing us that we are able to find the 90% confidence interval only for the tested strings, so it is also incorrect.

only option 2 is correct answer because this statement is correct, i.e. we are 90% confident that the average number of plucks to failure for all High E strings is between 6081.3 and 6205.3.

**So, answer is option 2**

Suppose you work for Fender Guitar Company and you are
responsible for testing the integrity of a new formulation of
guitar strings. To perform your analysis, you randomly select 51
'high E' strings and put them into a machine that simulates string
plucking thousands of times per minute. You record the number of
plucks each string takes before failure and compile a dataset. You
find that the average number of plucks is 6,398 with a standard
deviation of 286.12. A...

A pharmaceutical company is testing a new drug to increase
memorization ability. It takes a sample of individuals and splits
them randomly into two groups. One group is administered the drug,
and the other is given a placebo. After the drug regimen is
completed, all members of the study are given a test for
memorization ability with higher scores representing a better
ability to memorize. You are presented a 90% confidence interval
for the difference in population mean scores (with...
