Question

An article gave the following summary data on shear strength (kip) for a sample of 3/8-in. anchor bolts: n = 75, x = 4.50, s = 1.80. Calculate a lower confidence bound using a confidence level of 90% for true average shear strength. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

pls show work and formulas used in detail

Answer #1

Given that,

= 4.50

s =1.80

n = 75

Degrees of freedom = df = n - 1 = 75- 1 = 74

At 90% confidence level the t is ,

= 1 - 90% = 1 - 0.90 = 0.1

= 0.1

t
/2,df = t0.1,74 = **1.293** ( using
student t table)

Margin of error = E = t/2,df * (s /n)

=**1.293** * (1.80 /
75) = 0.27

The 90% confidence interval estimate of the population mean is,

- E

4.50 - 0.27

4.23

lower bound =4.23

An article gave the following summary data on shear strength
(kip) for a sample of 3/8-in. anchor bolts: n = 71,
x = 4.50, s = 1.40. Calculate a lower confidence
bound using a confidence level of 90% for true average shear
strength. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

The article “Evaluating Tunnel kiln Performance” (Amer. Ceramic
Soc. Bull., Aug. 1997: 59–63) gave the following summary
information for fracture strengths (Mpa) of n = 169 ceramic bars
ﬁred in a particular kiln: ¯ x = 89.10, s = 3.73.
(a) Calculate a (two-sided) conﬁdence interval for the true
average fracture strength using a conﬁdence level of 90%.
(b) Suppose the investigators had believed a priori that the
population standard deviation was about 4 Mpa. Based on this
supposition, how...

The following Exercise is based on summary statistics rather
than raw data. This information is typically all that is presented
in published reports. You can calculate inference procedures by
hand from the summaries. Use the conservative Option 2 (degrees of
freedom the smaller of n 1 −1 n1−1 and n 2 −1 n2−1 for two-sample t
confidence intervals and P-values. You must trust that the authors
understood the conditions for inference and verified that they
apply. This isn't always true.)...

outlier b) The explanatory variable c) A residual d) The response
variable
2. Which of the following statements is false:
a) The correlation coefficient is unitless. b) A correlation
