Question

Gamers" are described as people who regularly play video games. A random sample of 80 people was selected and 50 were found to be male. The 95% confidence interval for the proportion based on this sample is ________. A. (0.519, 0.731) B. (0.571, 0.679) C (0.463, 0.787) D. (0.536, 0.714)

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

n = 80

x = 50

Point estimate = sample proportion = = x / n = 50 / 80 = 0.625

1 - = 1 - 0.625 = 0.375

At 95% confidence level

= 1 - 95%

=1 - 0.95 =0.05

/2
= 0.025

Z/2
= Z_{0.025 = 1.960}

Margin of error = E = Z_{ / 2} * (( * (1 - )) / n)

= 1.96 (((0.625 * 0.375) / 80)

= 0.106

A 95% confidence interval for population proportion p is ,

± E

= 0.625 ± 0.106

= ( 0.519, 0.731 )

correct option is = A

Find the sample size needed to estimate the proportion of people
who play video games, with 90% confidence. Assume a previous poll
shows that about 16% of people play video games. The error should
be less than 3 percent points.
Critical Values: z0.005 = 2.575, z0.01 = 2.325, z0.025 =
1.96, z0.05 = 1.645
When d.f.=6: t0.005 = 3.707, t0.01 = 3.143, t0.025 =
2.447, t0.05 = 1.943
When d.f.=9: t0.005 = 3.250, t0.01 = 2.821, t0.025 =
2.262, t0.05...

4) It has been reported that 48% of teenagers play video games
on their phones. A random sample of 60 teenagers is drawn. Find the
probability that the proportion of teenagers in the sample who play
video games on their phone is less than 0.488. Round to 4 decimal
places.
5) 74% of freshmen entering public high schools in 2006
graduated with their class in 2010. A random sample of 81 freshmen

Suppose a random sample of 50 college students is asked if they
regularly eat breakfast. A 95% confidence interval for the
proportion of all students that regularly eat breakfast is found to
be 0.69 to 0.91. If a 90% confidence interval was calculated
instead, how would it differ from the 95% confidence interval?
The 90% confidence interval would be wider.
The 90% confidence interval would be narrower.
The 90% confidence interval would have the same width as the 95%
confidence...

Twelve different video games showing substance use were observed
and the duration times of game play (in seconds) are listed below.
The design of the study justifies the assumption that the sample
can be treated as a simple random sample. Use the data to construct
a 95% confidence interval estimate of μ, the mean duration of
game play.

A. In a random sample of 50
games, the home team won 28 games and lost 22 games. Use StatKey to
construct a 95% bootstrap confidence interval using the percentile
method to estimate the proportion of all games won by the home team
in the population. Take at least 5,000 resamples. Don’t forget to
include a screenshot from StatKey and to identify your
answer.
B. Interpret the meaning of
the confidence interval constructed in part A by completing the
phrase...

A random sample of n1n1 = 219 people who live in a city were
selected and 88 identified as a "dog person." A random sample of
n2n2 = 110 people who live in a rural area were selected and 66
identified as a "dog person." Find the 95% confidence interval for
the difference in the proportion of people that live in a city who
identify as a "dog person" and the proportion of people that live
in a rural area...
