Question

*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 nearest integer.

2. A random sample of 40 videos posted to YouTube was selected. A month later, the number of times that each had been viewed was tabulated. The mean number of viewings was 109 with a sample standard deviation of 376. Find the upper bound of the 99% confidence interval for the mean number of times videos posted to YouTube have been viewed in the first month. Round to the nearest integer.

3. A random sample of 13 DVD movies had a mean length of 116.6 minutes, with a standard deviation of 73.3 minutes. Find the lower bound of the 90% confidence interval for the true mean length of all Hollywood movies. Assume movie lengths to be approximately normally distributed. Round to one decimal place.

4. Six measurements were made of the mineral content (in percent) of spinach, with the following results. It is reasonable to assume that the population is approximately normal. 19.1,20.1,20.8,20.0,20.5,20.3. Find the lower bound of the 95% confidence interval for the true mineral content. Round to three decimal places.

5. Following are interest rates (annual percentage rates) for a 30-year-fixed-rate mortgage from a sample of lenders in a certain city. It is reasonable to assume that the population is approximately normal. 4.327,4.461,4.547,4.574,4.365,4.304,4.842. Find the upper bound of the 99% confidence interval for the mean rate. Round to three decimal places.

Answer #1

Q 1) The lower bound of the 95% confidence interval for the population mean lifetime of all bulbs manufactured by this new process :

Here we apply t test because the population standard deviation is unknown

Sample mean

Sample standard deviation s =31

n = 12

degrees of freedom = n-1 = 12-1 = 11

The critical value of t for 11df at 5% Significance level is 2.20

The lower bound of CI is

Answer: 631

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 739 hours with a sample standard
deviation of 45 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

Question 6
A random sample of 13 DVD movies had a mean length of 115.1
minutes, with a standard deviation of 64.7 minutes. Find the lower
bound of the 90% confidence interval for the true mean length of
all Hollywood movies. Assume movie lengths to be approximately
normally distributed.
Round to one decimal place (for example: 108.1). Write only a

6 measurements we're made of the mineral content in person of
spinach with the following results. It is reasonable to assume that
the population is approximately normal. 19.1, 20.1, 20.8, 19.9,
20.5, 21.7 Find the lower bound of the 95% confidence interval for
the true mineral content.

The lifetime of a certain brand of electric light bulb is known
to have a standard deviation of 53 hours. Suppose that a random
sample of 100 bulbs of this brand has a mean lifetime of 481 hours.
Find a 99% confidence interval for the true mean lifetime of all
light bulbs of this brand. Then complete the table below. Carry
your intermediate computations to at least three decimal places.
Round your answers to one decimal place. (If necessary, consult...

Six
measurements were made of the mineral content (in percent) of
spinach, with the following results. It is reasonable to assume
that the population is approximately normal
19.1, 20.1, 20.8, 20.5, 20.5, 19.5
Find the lower bound of the 95% confidence interval for the
true mineral content.
Round to three decimal places (for example: 20.015)Write only
a number as your answer . Do not write any units.

A random sample of 13 DVD movies had a mean length of 114.9
minutes, with a standard deviation of 72.8 minutes. Find the lower
bound of the 90% confidence interval for the true mean length of
all Hollywood movies. Assume movie lengths to be approximately
normally distributed. Round to one decimal place.

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...

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.
