Question

The home run percentage is the number of home runs per 100 times at bat. A random sample of 43 professional baseball players gave the following data for home run percentages.

1.6 | 2.4 | 1.2 | 6.6 | 2.3 | 0.0 | 1.8 | 2.5 | 6.5 | 1.8 |

2.7 | 2.0 | 1.9 | 1.3 | 2.7 | 1.7 | 1.3 | 2.1 | 2.8 | 1.4 |

3.8 | 2.1 | 3.4 | 1.3 | 1.5 | 2.9 | 2.6 | 0.0 | 4.1 | 2.9 |

1.9 | 2.4 | 0.0 | 1.8 | 3.1 | 3.8 | 3.2 | 1.6 | 4.2 | 0.0 |

1.2 | 1.8 | 2.4 |

(a) Use a calculator with mean and standard deviation keys to
find x and *s*. (Round your answers to two decimal
places.)

x = | % |

s = |
% |

(b) Compute a 90% confidence interval for the population mean μ
of home run percentages for all professional baseball players.
*Hint:* If you use the Student's *t* distribution
table, be sure to use the closest *d.f.* that is
*smaller*. (Round your answers to two decimal places.)

lower limit | % |

upper limit | % |

(c) Compute a 99% confidence interval for the population mean μ of home run percentages for all professional baseball players. (Round your answers to two decimal places.)

lower limit | % |

upper limit | % |

Answer #1

The statistical software output for this problem is :

One sample T confidence interval:

μ : Mean of variable

**90% confidence interval results:**

Variable | Sample Mean | Std. Err. | DF | L. Limit | U. Limit |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Data | 2.2930233 | 0.2136638 | 42 | 1.9336509 | 2.6523956 |

**99% confidence interval results:**

Variable | Sample Mean | Std. Err. | DF | L. Limit | U. Limit |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

Data | 2.2930233 | 0.2136638 | 42 | 1.7165442 | 2.8695023 |

(a)

x = 2.29

s = 1.40

(b)

Lower limit = 1.93

Upper limit = 2.65

(c)

Lower limit = 1.72

Upper limit = 2.87

Provided in the date below a set of restoration times for 35
failed power transformers. The data were collected for recent
transformer failures by a fairly novice work crew. a. What is a 90%
confidence interval for mean restoration time? b. What is a 99%
confidence interval for mean restoration time? c. If the industry
standard for such a restoration is 2.7 hours, discuss how well the
work crew in this analysis performed.
