According to a survey, the workers employed in a processing industry earn an average of $550 per week. Assume that this mean is based on a random sample of 1000 workers selected from the processing industry and that the population standard deviation of weekly earnings is known to be $75. Find a 99% confidence interval for the mean weekly earnings of all workers employed in processing industries.

2a.A survey is conducted to estimate the average age of students
enrolled in a college. The population standard deviation is known
to be 2.5 years. 32 students were interviewed and their average age
was 22.6 years. For question 6, give the lowest
value of the 99% confidence interval of the population
mean (rounded to the tenths place). For question 7, refer back to
this question and give the highest value of the
99% confidence interval of the population mean. You...

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average
weekly earnings of a production worker in manufacturing in the
United States as of October 2014 was $827.27. Suppose a labor
researcher wants to test to determine whether this figure is still
accurate today. The researcher randomly selects 54 production
workers from across the United States and obtains a representative
earnings statement for one week from each worker. The resulting
sample average is $843.56. Assuming a population standard deviation

described here.
b. Find the mean and the standard deviation of the sampling
distribution of x overbarx for a random sample of size 100.

According to the Current Population Survey by the Bureau of the
Census, men with a bachelor’s degree earn an average of $46,700. A
random sample of 42 women with a bachelor’s degree shows average
earnings of $38,700 with a standard deviation of $12,500. Is there
sufficient evidence to suggest that the average earnings of women
with a bachelor’s degree are less than the average earnings of men
with a bachelor’s degree?

According to Runzheimer International, in a survey of relocation
administrators 63% of all workers who rejected relocation offers
did so for family considerations. Suppose this figure was obtained
by using a random sample of the files of 732 workers who had
