Question

In a sample of 80 light bulbs, the mean lifetime was 1217 hours with a standard deviation of 53 hours.

Find a 90% upper confidence interval for the mean lifetime. (Round the final answer to two decimal places.)

The 90% upper confidence bound is ____

I got 1226.75, but it says it incorrect.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

Point estimate = sample mean = = 1217

Population standard deviation =
= 53

Sample size = n =80

At 90% confidence level the z is

= 1 - 90% = 1 - 0.90 = 0.1

=0.1

Z = Z0.1 = 1.28( Using z table )

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

= 1.28 * (53 / 80
)

= 7.58

At 90% confidence interval estimate of the population mean

is,

+ E

1217 + 7.58

1224.58

upper bound=1224.58

The lifetime of a certain brand of electric light bulb is known
to have a standard deviation of

A light bulb manufacturer wants to compare the mean lifetimes of
two of its light bulbs, model A and model B. Independent random
samples of the two models were taken. Analysis of 11 bulbs of model
A showed a mean lifetime of 1361hours and a standard deviation of
83 hours. Analysis of 15 bulbs of model B showed a mean lifetime of
1304 hours and a standard deviation of 81hours. Assume that the
populations of lifetimes for each model are...

A random sample of 99 light bulbs had a mean life of x = 415
hours with a standard deviation of a = 34 hours. Construct a 90%
confidence interval for the mean life, μ, of all light bulbs of
this type. Round to the nearest ones place?

A
random Sample of 79 light bulbs had a mean Iife of 400 hours with
standard deviation of 28 hours. Construct 90% interval for the mean
life of light bulbs

The lifetime of light bulbs produced by a company are normally
distributed with mean 1500 hours and standard deviation 125
hours.
(c) If three new bulbs are installed at the same time, what is
the probability that exactly two will be burning after 1400
hours?
(d) If three new bulbs are installed at the same time, what is
the probability that at least two will be burning after 1400
hours?
Enter your answer as a decimal, not a percentage. Round...

A manufacturer claims that the mean lifetime, u, of its light
bulbs is 53 months. The standard deviation of these lifetimes is 6
months. Ninety bulbs are selected at random, and their mean
lifetime is found to be 52 months. Can we conclude, at the 0.05
level of significance, that the mean lifetime of light bulbs made
by this manufacturer differs from 53 months?
Perform a two-tailed test. Then fill in the table below. Carry

A technician in a light bulb manufacturing plant desires
to determine the mean lifetime of the light bulbs in the most
recent production run. The technician takes an SRS of 20 light
bulbs. The mean and standard deviation of this sample is 72 hours
and 15 hours respectively.
What is the 99% confidence interval for the mean
lifetime ( µ ) for all light bulbs in this production
run?

The
lifetime of light bulbs produced by a company are normally
distributed with mean 1500 hours and standard deviation of 125
hours.
a). What is the probability that a bulb will still be burning
after 1250 hours?
b). What is the number of hours that is survived by 78.81% of
the light bulbs?

*Please Answer All *
1. A company has developed a new type of light bulb and wants to
estimate its mean lifetime. A simple random sample of 12 bulbs had
a sample mean lifetime of 651 hours with a sample standard
deviation of 31 hours. It is reasonable to believe that the
population is approximately normal. Find the lower bound of the 95%
confidence interval for the population mean lifetime of all bulbs
manufactured by this new process. Round to...
