Question

#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)

Answer #1

Solution :

Here population standard deviation is known & population are
normally distributed, so we use **Z standard
distribution.**

**99% Confidence interval : ( 63.81 , 88.19 )**

**Explanation :**

Assuming that the population is normally distributed, construct
a 99 % confidence interval for the population mean, based on the
following sample size of n equals 5. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 26 In the
given data, replace the value 26 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 99 % confidence interval for the
population mean, using the...

Assuming that the population is normally distributed, construct
a 99% confidence interval for the population mean for each of the
samples below. Explain why these two samples produce different
confidence intervals even though they have the same mean and
range.

population and construct the indicated confidence
interval.
Construct the indicated confidence intervals for the population
variance σ 2 and the population
standard deviation σ. Assume the sample is from a normally

You plan to construct a 99% confidence interval for the mean
of a normal population with (known) standard deviation . By using
a sample size of 100 rather than 400, you can change the margin of
error by a factor of? Justify.

Use the standard normal distribution or the t-distribution to
construct a 99% confidence interval for the population mean.
Justify your decision. If neither distribution can be used,
explain why. Interpret the results.
In a recent season, the population standard deviation of the
yards per carry for all running backs was 1.21. The yards per carry
of 25 randomly selected running backs are shown below. Assume the
yards per carry are normally distributed.

Use the standard normal distribution or the t-distribution to
construct a 99% confidence interval for the population mean.
Justify your decision. If neither distribution can be used,
explain why. Interpret the results. In a random sample of 13
mortgage institutions, the mean interest rate was 3.59% and the
standard deviation was 0.42%. Assume the interest rates are
normally distributed.
