Question

The table provides summary statistics on highway fuel economy of cars manufactured in a certain year.

Hwy MPG | ||
---|---|---|

Automatic | Manual | |

Mean | 22.92 | 28.87 |

SD | 5.28 | 5.02 |

n | 26 | 26 |

Use these statistics to calculate a 98% confidence interval for the difference between average highway mileage of manual and automatic cars, and interpret this interval in the context of the data. (Round your answers to two decimal places.)

We are 98% confident that on the highway cars with manual transmissions get on average (?) to (?) MPG more than cars with automatic transmissions.

Answer #1

The table provides summary statistics on highway fuel economy of
cars manufactured in 2012 (from Exercise 5.32). Use these
statistics to calculate a 98% confidence interval for the
difference between average highway mileage of manual and automatic
cars, and interpret this interval in the context of the data.

Fuel Efficiency of Manual and Automatic
Cars
Each year the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) releases
fuel economy data on cars manufactured in that year. Below are
summary statistics on fuel efficiency (in miles/gallon) from random
samples of cars with manual and automatic transmissions
manufactured in 2012. Do these data provide strong evidence of a
difference between the average fuel efficiency of cars with manual
and automatic transmissions in terms of their average city mileage?
Assume that conditions for inference...

In analyzing the city and highway fuel efficiencies of many cars
and trucks, the mean difference in fuel efficiencies for the
611vehicles was 7.38 mpg with a standard deviation of 2.51
mpg. Find a 95% confidence interval for this difference and
interpret it in context. Round to 2 decimals.

In analyzing the city and highway fuel efficiencies of many cars
and trucks, the mean difference in fuel efficiencies for the 631
vehicles was 7.49 mpg with a standard deviation of 2.53mpg. Find a
95% confidence interval for this difference and interpret it in
context.
The 95% confidence interval for the difference in fuel
efficiencies is left parenthesis nothing comma nothing right
parenthesis, mpg.
(Round to two decimal places as needed.)

The highway fuel economy of a 2016 Lexus RX 350 FWD 6-cylinder
3.5-L automatic 5-speed using premium fuel is a normally
distributed random variable with a mean of u=22.00 MPG and a
standard deviation of a=1.25 MPG (a) What is the standard error of
X, the mean from a random sample of 25 fill-ups by one driver? (b)
Within what interval would you expect the sample mean to fall, with
98 percent probability? The interval is from ? to ?
