Question

- The results of a sample of 372 subscribers
to
*Wired*magazine shows the time spent using the Internet during the week. Previous surveys have revealed that the population standard deviation is 10.95 hours. The sample data can be found in the Excel test data file.- What is the probability that another sample of 372 subscribers spends less than 19.00 hours per week using the Internet?
- Develop a 95% confidence interval for the population mean
- If the editors of
*Wired*wanted to have the error be no more than 1 hour, using the same 95% confidence interval, what size of sample would be required.

Answer #1

∑x = 7347

n = 372

Mean , x̅ = Ʃx/n = 7347/372 = 19.75

µ = 19.75, σ = 10.95, n = 372

P(X̅ < 19) =

= P( (X̅-μ)/(σ/√n) < (19-19.75)/(10.95/√372) )

= P(z < -1.321)

Using excel function:

= NORM.S.DIST(-1.321, 1)

= **0.0932**

----

Population standard deviation, σ = 10.95

Margin of error, E = 1

Confidence interval, CL = 0.95

Significance level, α = 1-CL = 0.05

Critical value, z = NORM.S.INV(0.05/2) = 1.9600

Sample size, n = (z * σ / E)² = (1.96 * 10.95 / 1)² = 460.6 =
**461**

A manufacturing company is purchasing metal pipes of standard
length from two different suppliers, ABC and XYZ. In the past two
months there are increasing complaints by the Production Manager
that delivery times by ABC present higher variability in comparison
to the delivery times by XYZ. The Production Manager is worried
that this variability will make it harder to efficiently schedule
the production process. If the variance of XYZ remains unchanged,
what should be the variance of ABC in order...
