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 100 points was a x¯=77, with a marg... in of error of 10. Construct a confidence interval for the mean score (out of 100 points) on the final exam. That is correct! 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 of p′=0.14, with a sampling standard deviation of σp′=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. That is correct! Answer: ( 0.10, 0.18) 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. What is the correct interpretation of the 95% confidence interval? That is correct! We estimate with 95% confidence that the sample mean is between 237 and 293 pages. We estimate that 95% of the time a book is selected, there will be between 237 and 293 pages. We estimate with 95% confidence that the true population mean is between 237 and 293 pages. 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. That is correct! 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 a 98% 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 2 1.64 5 1.96 0 2.32 6 2.57 6 Use the table of values above. That is correct! Answer: 846 Students Question 6 The average score of a random sample of 87 senior 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..

Answer: (509.30, 519.18) Question 7 A random sample of 28 statistics tutorials was selected from the past 5 years and the percentage of students absent from each one recorded. The results are given below. Assume the percentages of students' absences are approximately normally distributed. Use Excel to estimate the mean percentage of absences per tutorial over the past 5 years with 90% confidence. Round your answers to two decimal places and use increasing order. Number of Absences 13.9 16.4 12.3 13.2 8.4 4.4 10.3 8.8 4.8 HelpCopy to ClipboardDownload CSV That is correct! Answer: (9.22, 11.61) Question 8 Eric is studying people's typing habits. He surveyed 525 people and asked whether they leave one space or two spaces after a period when typing. 440 people responded that they leave one space. Create a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of people who leave one space after a period. Round your results to four decimal places. That is correct! Answer: (0.8117, 0.8645) Question 9 A sample of 27 employees for the Department of Health and Human Services has the following salaries, in thousands of dollars. Assuming normality, use Excel to find the 98% confidence interval for the true mean salary, in thousands of dollars. Round your answers to two decimal places and use increasing order.

Answer: (69.14, 71.38) Question 10 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 1 inch of the true population mean, what is the minimum sample size that can be taken? z0.101.282z0.051.645z0.0251.960z0.012.326z0.0052.576 Use the table above for the z-score, and be sure to round up to the nearest integer. That is correct! Answer: 53 dog heights Question 11 A random sample of house sizes in major city has a sample mean of x¯=1204.9 sq ft and sample standard deviation of s=124.6 sq ft. Use the Empirical Rule to determine the approximate percentage of house sizes that lie between 955.7and 1454.1 sq ft. Round your answer to the nearest whole number (percent). That is correct! Answer: 95 % Question 12 The graph below shows the graphs of several normal distributions, labeled A, B, and C, on the same axis. Determine which normal distribution has the smallest standard deviation. That is correct! A B C Question 13 The resistance of a strain gauge is normally distributed with a mean of 100 ohms and a standard deviation of 0.3 ohms. To meet the specification, the resistance must be within the range 100±0.7 ohms. What proportion of gauges is acceptable? Round your answer to four decimal places. That is correct! Answer: 0.9804 Question 14 A baker knows that the daily demand for strawberry pies is a random variable that follows the normal distribution with a mean of 31.8 pies and a standard deviation of 4.5 pies. Find the demand that has an 8% probability of being exceeded. Use Excel, and round your answer to two decimal places. That is correct! Answer: 38.12 Question 15 A group of friends has gotten very competitive with their board game nights. They have found that overall, they each have won an average of 18 games, with a population standard deviation of 6 games. If a sample of only 2 friends is selected at random from the group, select the expected mean and the standard deviation of the sampling distribution from the options below. Remember to round to the nearest whole number. That is correct! σx¯=6 games σx¯=3 games σx¯=4 games μx¯=18 games μx¯=3 games μx¯=9 games Question 16 An elementary school has a population of 635 students, 600 of whom have received the chicken pox vaccine. The school nurse wants to make sure that the school meets all state requirements for vaccinations at public schools. Find the population proportion, as well as the mean and standard deviation of the sampling distribution for samples of size n=120. [Show More]
