Question

Suppose researchers wanted to know about the prevalence of Mountain Dew consumption A study conducted in 2018 collected data on which soft drinks Americans aged 18 to 29 years consumed in the last 4 weeks In that year , 43.60\% of respondents aged 18 to 29 years stated that they drank Mountain Dew within 4 weeks

3.8 Suppose the 90%confidence interval calculate for these data was (0.406, 0.466). Which of the following would be possible 95%confidence intervals for these same data? Select all that apply

a) 0.368, 0.486

b) 0.426, 0.446

c) 0.382, 0.490

d) 0.382, 0.550

Q n 3.9 Which of the following is a correct interpretation of the confidence level for the interval you were asked to create?

a) Approximately 90% of samples will contain the value of 0.436, the proportion of Americans aged 18 to 29 in the sample who drank Mountain Dew within the last 4 weeks in 2018, in the 90% confidence intervals created from each sample.

b) One can conclude, with 90% confidence, that the proportion of Americans aged 18-29 who consumed Mountain Dew in the last 4 weeks in 2018 is between the values of the confidence interval from the previous problem.

c) In the long run, 90% samples will create a 90% confidence interval that contains the true proportion of Americans aged 18 to 29 years in 2018 who consumed Mountain Dew in the past 4 weeks.

d) On average, 90% of samples will result in a sample proportion of Americans aged 18-29 years who drank Mountain Dew within the last 4 weeks in 2018 between the values of the confidence interval from the previous problem.

Q310 Comparing CI to Hypothesis Test 2 Points Again , not the correct confidence interval values that you would calculated suppose the 90 % confidence interval calculated was( 0.406, 0.466) Let's say you wanted to conduct a hypothesis test testing whether a proportion of less than 0.5 ) of Americans aged to 29 in 2018 had Dew in the last 4 weeks . Would you expect the p value to be small or small or large and then explain your reasoning in no more than 2 sentences

Answer #1

1) Suppose that you wanted to know if the percentage of people
who will attend a sporting event this year will decrease. Last
year, 43% of Americans attended a sporting event. After taking a
sample, you attain a sample percentage of 18% with a margin of
error of 3%. Construct a confidence interval and use that interval
to determine if the number of Americans who will attend a sporting
event has decreased. Show your calculation for the interval and
then...

PART I
The owner of a local golf course wanted to determine the average
age (in years) of the golfers that played on the course. In a
random sample of 27 golfers that visited his course, the sample
mean was 47 years old and the standard deviation was 5.11 years.
Using this information, the owner calculated the confidence
interval of (45.3, 48.7) with a confidence level of 90% for the
average age. Which of the following is an appropriate
interpretation...

Close Friends: The 2004 General Social Survey (GSS) interviewed
a random sample of adult Americans. For one question the
interviewer asked: “From time to time, most people discuss
important matters with other people. Looking back over the last six
months – who are the people with whom you discussed matters
important to you? Just tell me their first names or initials.” The
interviewer then recorded how many names or initials the respondent
mentioned. Results are tallied in the following table:...

Suppose you are a civil engineer, specializing in traffic volume
control for the City of Grand Rapids. Your department has been
receiving a multitude of complaints about traffic wait times for a
certain intersection in the heart of downtown. To see if these
claims are valid, you want to monitor the true average wait time at
that intersection. Over the course of a few months, you record the
average number of minutes a car waits at the intersection between
4:00...

1. Costs are rising for all kinds of health care. The mean
monthly rent at assisted-living facilities was recently reported to
have increased 18% over the last five years. A recent random sample
of 121 observations reported a sample mean of $3486. Assume that
past studies have informed us that the population standard
deviation is $650. For this problem, round your answers to 2 digits
after the decimal point.
