Question

Describe in detail how you would construct a 95% confidence
interval for a set of 30 data points whose mean is 20 and
population standard deviation is 3. Be sure to show that you know
the formula and how to plug into it. Also, clearly state the margin of error. |

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

= 20

= 3

n = 30

At 95% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 95% = 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

/ 2 = 0.05 / 2 = 0.025

Z_{/2} =
Z_{0.025} = 1.96

Margin of error = E = Z_{/2}* ( /n)

= 1.96 * (3 / 30)

= 1.07

Margin of error = 1.07

1)Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate for the
population mean given that s =30 , and n = 20.
2) A random sample of 81 workers at a company showed that they
work an average of 100 hours per month with a standard deviation of
27 hours. At 95% confidence, how many more workers need to be
included in the sample to provide a confidence interval with length
4 (i.e., the margin of error being 2)?

Assume that you want to construct a 95% confidence interval
estimate of a population mean. Find an estimate of the sample size
needed to obtain the specified margin of error for the 95%
confidence interval. The sample standard deviation is given
below.
Margin of errors=$6,
standard deviation=$22
The required sample size is __

Construct the indicated confidence interval for the population
mean of each data set. If it is possible to construct a confidence
interval, justify the distribution you used. If it is not possible,
explain why.

#1. You are to construct a
99% confidence interval of a normally distributed population; the
population standard deviation is known to be 25. A random sample of
size 28 is taken; (i) the sample mean is found to 76 and (ii) the
sample standard deviation was found to be 30. Construct the
Confidence interval. Clearly name the standard distribution you
used (z, or t or F etc.) and show work. (10 points)

mean of each data set. If it is possible to construct a confidence
interval, justify the distribution you used. If it is not
possible, explain why.

You want to construct a 95% confidence interval to estimate an
unknown population proportion with a margin of error of ±2%. What
is the minimum necessary sample size that you should obtain?

What sample size would be needed to construct a 95% confidence
interval with a 5% margin of error on any population
proportion?
Give a whole number answer. (Of course.)

Assuming that the population is normally distributed, construct
a 95 % confidence interval for the population mean, based on the
following sample size of n equals 5.n=5.
1,2,3,4 and 17
In the given data, replace the value 17 with 5 and recalculate
the confidence interval. Using these results, describe the effect
of an outlier (that is, an extreme value) on the confidence
interval, in general.
