Document Content and Description Below

Question 1 A statistics professor recently graded final exams for students in her introductory statistics course. In a review of her grading, she found the mean score out of 100points was ax¯=77, w... ith a margin of error of10. Construct a confidence interval for the mean score (out of 100points) on the final exam. Answer: (67, 87) Question 2 A random sample of adults were asked whether they prefer reading an e-book over a printed book. The survey resulted in a sample proportion ofp′=0.14, with a sampling standard deviation ofσp′=0.02, who preferred reading an e-book. Use the empirical rule to construct a 95%confidence interval for the true proportion of adults who prefer ebooks. Question 3 The pages per book in a library are normally distributed with an unknown population mean. A random sample of books is taken and results in a 95%confidence interval of (237,293)pages.That is correct! What is the correct interpretation of the 95%confidence interval? We estimate with95%confidence that the sample mean is between 237and293pages. We estimate that 95%of the time a book is selected, there will be between 237and293pages. We estimate with95%confidence that the true population mean is between 237and293pages. Question 4 The population standard deviation for the heights of dogs, in inches, in a city is 3.7 inches. If we want to be 95%confident that the sample mean is within 2 inches of the true population mean, what is the minimum sample size that can be taken? Round up to the nearest integer. Answer: 14 dog heights Question 5 Clarence wants to estimate the percentage of students who live more than three miles from the school. He wants to create a98% confidence interval which has an error bound of at most 4%. How many students should be polled to create the confidence interval? z0.10 z0.05 z0.02 5 z0.01 z0.005 1.28 1.64 1.96 2.32 2.57 That is correct!That is correct! Answer: 846 Students That is correct! 2 5 0 6 6 Use the table of values above. Question 6 The average score of a random sample of 87senior business majors at a university who took a certain standardized test follows a normal distribution with a standard deviation of 28. Use Excel to determine a 90%confidence interval for the mean of the population. Round your answers to two decimal places and use ascending order.. Score 516 53 [Show More]
