Question

please provide detailed explanation for each part of the question.

We are interested in estimating the mean systolic blood pressure for female diabetics between the ages of 30 and 34. For the purposes of this question you may assume that blood pressure in this population has a normal distribution.

a. A random sample of 10 women is selected from this population. The average systolic blood pressure in this sample is 130 mmHg. The sample standard deviation is 9.2 mmHg. Calculate a 95% confidence interval for , the mean systolic blood pressure in the population of female diabetics aged 30 to 34.

b. Provide a formal interpretation of your confidence interval in a) in words. (What does “95% confidence” mean?)

c. Can you determine how large the random sample of women would need to be for a 99% confidence interval to have a total width of 10 mmHg? If so, provide the sample size. If not, explain why.

Answer #1

a) Confidence interval, CI = Z*

n = 10

= 130 mmHg

s = 9.2 mmHg

For 95% confidence level, Z* = 1.96

CI = 130 1.96 x

= 130 5.70

= **(124.30, 135.70)**

b) We are 95% confident that the mean systolic blood pressure for female diabetics between the ages of 30 and 34 will be within the interval (124.30, 135.70)

c) If the total width of confidence interval = 10,

Margin of error, E = 10/2 = 5

E = Z*

For 99% CI, Z* = 2.576

5 = 2.576 x

= 4.8944

n = 24

For a 99% confidence interval to have a total width of 10 mmHg,
the sample size required is **24**.

Instructions: Be sure to define all random variables/events used
in probability calculations. You should obtain “exact”
probabilities from R rather than giving approximate probabilities
using the 68-95-99.7 rule. Provide any code you use (final computed
values are not sufficient). I strongly recommend that you create a
Jupyter Notebook for this assignment, embedding your written
comments in Markdown cells.

For a certain group of cancer patients we are interested in
estimating the mean age of diagnosis. We would like a 95%
confidence level.
Assume the population standard deviation is 12 years.
a. What sample size do you recommend for an interval width of 5

Utilize the following information and answer the questions
below: A 95% confidence interval obtained from a sample of 100
outpatients for the true population mean normal mean systolic blood
pressure is given by (114 mmHG, 120 mmHG).
Construct the confidence interval. Provide a correct
interpretation of this interval. Can you think of other
interpretations that would also be correct?
This confidence interval came from a single sample, would we get
the same interval if we obtained a different set of...

You have data from a sample of 65 workers
at a local factory who are full time employees. The mean systolic
blood pressure of this sample 120. You know that
the population standard deviation (?) of all workers' systolic
blood pressure at the local factory is
18."
Which of the below represents the best
interpretation of the 95% confidence
interval you calculated on the previous question for the
unknown population mean systolic blood pressure of local factory
workers who are...

The effectiveness of a blood-pressure drug is being
investigated. An experimenter finds that, on average, the reduction
in systolic blood pressure is 84.5 mmHg (millimeters of mercury)
for a sample of size 742 and a sample standard deviation 9.9 mmHg.
How much of mmHg will lower for a typical patient's systolic blood
pressure after taking the drug? Estimate with a 98% confidence.
Preliminary:
Is it safe to assume that n≤5%n≤5% of all patients with a
systolic blood pressure?
No
Yes...

3. We are interested in estimating the mean annual income of
adults in Sweetwater County. To accomplish this, we select a random
sample of 65 adults residing in the county. We find that the sample
mean is $47,250, and we know from the previous studies that the
population standard deviation is $3,555. a) Calculate a 95%
confidence interval for the population mean, and interpret the
result. B) Calculate a 99% confidence interval for the population
mean, and interpret the result....

We are interested in estimating the mean amount of rain last
month in our county. It is known that the population standard
deviation is 1.5 inches generally for the month of interest. 49
instruments that measure rainfall were placed throughout the county
randomly. The sample mean from the instruments was 5.2 inches.
Calculate a 95% confidence interval for the population mean of
rainfall last month in the county. [Reference: Table A: Standard
Normal Probabilities]
