Question

The variability of the time to be admitted in a health care facility is of great concern. A random sample of 15 patients shows a mean time to admission of 2.2 hours with standard deviation of 0.2hours.

a) Find the confidence interval of the variance

b) Can we conclude that the variance of time to admission is less than 0.06? Use alpha = 0.01 Please Explain and show calculations.

Answer #1

The hypotheses are

a)We have the distribution of sample variance is such that . Here

The confidence interval for variance is

The 99% confidence interval for variance is

b) Since 0.06 is included in the confidence interval , we cannot conclude that the variance of time to admission is less than 0.06 at level of significance.

11. A local health care facility noted that in a sample of 200
patients, 180 were referred to them by the local hospital. Provide
a 99% confidence interval for all the patients who are referred to
this facility by the hospital. a. 0.9 ± 0.013*0.021 b. 0.9 ±
2.575*0.021 c. 0.9 ± 2.601*0.021 d. 0.9 ± 2.601*0.00045 e. 0.9 ±
2.575*0.00045

A company wants to examine the average operation time for a
process. Two methods were used. A random sample of 40 for the first
method gives an average mean time of 20.5 minutes with variance of
3 minutes. A random sample of 50 for the second method gives an
average mean time of 17.6 minutes with variance of 4 minutes. (Use
normal distribution with variance known)
Determine the 95% confidence interval for the difference
between the means
At alpha =0.05...

Betty starred on a great number of game shows – and perhaps my
favorite was Match Game. While Betty was a great player, did she do
better with some contestants than others? Betty took a random
sample of Match Game episodes and found that she matched the male
contestants 264 out of 385 times and matched the female contestants
294 out of 377 times.
(a) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the difference in
the proportion of the time Betty...

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reported that the
average time American youths spend outdoors is 10.4 hours per week.
A student thinks it is less than 10.4. He collected a random sample
of 23 American youths, and the sample produced an average of 9.9
hours outdoors and a standard deviation of 1.2 hours. Do you
believe that the student’s claim is more reasonable than NIH’s?
Test the student’s claim with a significance level of 0.01. Show
all the steps...

Let x = age in years of a rural Quebec woman at the
time of her first marriage. In the year 1941, the population
variance of x was approximately σ2 =
5.1. Suppose a recent study of age at first marriage for a random
sample of 51 women in rural Quebec gave a sample variance
s2 = 3.1. Use a 5% level of significance to
test the claim that the current variance is less than 5.1. Find a
90% confidence...
