Question

. At a local university, the professor of sleep would like to
know the mean time a college student sleeps per nite. Ten randomly
selected students were asked how long they slept at night. The mean
time they slept was 7.1 hours, and the standard deviation was 0.78
hour.

a) Find the best point estimate for the true mean time:
______________

b) Find the 95% confidence interval for the population mean:
______________________

c) A second professor believes that the mean number of hours a
student sleeps

is about 8.5 hours. Based on the confidence interval above
would you agree or disgree and explain.

Answer #1

a) The best point estimate for the true mean is equal to the
sample mean which is 7.1 hours here. **Therefore the best
point estimate for the true mean is 7.1 hours.**

b) For n - 1 = 9 degrees of freedom, we get from the t
distribution tables that:

P( -2.262 < t_{9} < 2.262) = 0.95

Therefore the confidence interval here is obtained as:

**This is the required 95% confidence interval for the
population mean.**

c) As the value of 8.5 hours lies above the whole confidence interval, therefore based on the above interval, we would reject the professor claim here and conclude that we have sufficient evidence that the mean number of hours a student sleeps is not 8.5 hours.

A professor at a university wants to estimate the average number
of hours of sleep students get during exam week. On the first day
of exams, she asked 21 students how many hours they had slept the
night before. The average of the sample was 4.72 with a standard
deviation of 1.58. When estimating the average amount of sleep with
a 90% confidence interval, what is the margin of error? Question 3

Notice that one joker said that he sleeps 24 hours a day.
99% confidence interval for the mean amount of sleep from the

Leave the outlier in and construct the 99% confidence
interval. Round the answers to two decimal places.

A professor at a local community college is interested in
studying the amount of hours that a college student works per week.
If the professor would like to construct a 99% confidence interval
for the mean hours worked per week by college students within 1.4
hours, what sample size would the professor need? A previous study
found that the standard deviation for the amount of hours students
work per week was 3.19 hours.

Suppose you want to know the average amount of sleep you get per
night. You record your elapsed sleep time over 35 nights. The mean
is 7.1 and standard deviation is 2.3. Find a 95% confidence
interval for your mean number of hours of sleep per night. Report
the answer accurate to four decimal places

Sleeping outlier: A simple random sample of
eight college freshmen were asked how many hours of sleep they
typically got per night. The results were:
8.5 7.5 6.5 9 24 6 8.5 8
Notice that one joker said that he sleeps 24 hours a day.
The data contain an outlier that is clearly a mistake. Eliminate
the outlier, then construct a confidence interval for the mean
amount of sleep from the remaining values. Round the answers to two
decimal places....

1. A sample of 61 students at a university were asked how many
hours of sleep they get on weeknights. The sample had a mean of 6.2
hours and a standard deviation of 0.7 hours.
a. Use your calculator to construct a 95% confidence interval
estimate for the mean reported weeknight sleep time among students
at that university. Write a statement (we are...) that interprets
your answer.

1. Sleep time per night among all university students is
approximately normally distributed with a mean of 6.78 hours and a
standard deviation of 1.24 hours. A random sample of 31 students is
selected.
Question: Calculate the value that 20 percent of the means would
exceed.

Suppose you perform a study about the hours of sleep that
college students get. You know that for all people, the average is
about 7 hours. You randomly select 35 college students and survey
them on their sleep habits. From this sample, the mean number of
hours of sleep is found to be 6.4 hours with a standard deviation
of 0.97 hours. You want to construct a 95% confidence interval for
the mean nightly hours of sleep for all college...

How much sleep do you get on a typical school night? A group of
10 college students were asked to report the number of hours that
they slept on the previous night with the following results.
7.25, 6.25, 7.5, 7.25, 8.75, 4.75, 8.25, 7.25, 7, 6.25

Find a 99% confidence interval for the average number of hours that
college students sleep.

What assumptions are required in order for this confidence interval
to be valid? (Select...
