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

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 __

#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)

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.
(a) In a random sample of 40 patients, the mean waiting time at
a dentist’s office was 20 minutes and the standard deviation was
7.5 minutes. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population
mean.
(b) In a random sample of 20 people, the mean tip...

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.
Find a 95 % confidence interval for the population mean, using
the formula or technology.

Use the birth weights from the data set, “Births,” to construct
a 95% confidence interval estimate of the standard deviation of the
population from which the sample was obtained.

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?

The following questions ask you to construct and compare
a series of confidence intervals.
A. In a representative sample
of 30 students, the mean quiz score was 54 points with a standard
deviation of 2 points. Construct a 95% confidence interval to
estimate the mean quiz score in the population of all
students. [5 points]
B. In a representative sample
of 100 students, the mean quiz score was 54 points with a standard
deviation of 2 points. Construct a 95%...

Estimation & Confidence Interval
1. A sample of 1500 homes sold recently in a state gave the mean
price of homes equal to $287,350. The population standard deviation
of the prices of homes in this state is $53,850.
a. Calculate the margin error and construct a 90% confidence
interval for the mean price of all homes in this state.
b. Calculate the margin error and construct a 95% confidence
interval for the mean price of all homes in this state....

You are asked to construct a 95 percent confidence interval for
a mean and construct it
to be (0.22, 1.35). You then get another set of data, which you
believe is from the same
distribution, that gives an average of 1.40. Is this consistent
with the confidence interval
that you constructed?
