(Answered)MATH225N Week 6 Assignment: Understanding Confidence Intervals – Excel

Question

A company wants to determine a confidence interval for the average CPU time of its teleprocessing transactions. A sample of 70 random transactions in milliseconds is given below. Assume that the transaction times follow a normal distribution with a standard deviation of 600 milliseconds. Use Excel to determine a 98% confidence interval for the average CPU time in milliseconds. Round your answers to the nearest integer and use ascending order

Thus, the 98% confidence interval for μ is

Question

Suppose the weights of tight ends in a football league are normally distributed such that σ2=1,369. A sample of 49 tight ends was randomly selected, and the weights are given below. Use Excel to calculate the 95% confidence interval for the mean weight of all tight ends in this league. Round your answers to two decimal places and use ascending order

Thus, the 95% confidence interval for μ is

Question

A sample of 22 test-tubes tested for number of times they can be heated on a Bunsen burner before they crack is given below. Assume the counts are normally distributed. Use Excel to construct a 99% confidence interval for μ. Round your answers to two decimal places and use increasing order.

Thus, the 99% confidence interval for the mean is

Question

In a random sample of 350 attendees of a minor league baseball game, 184 said that they bought food from the concession stand. Create a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of fans who bought food from the concession stand. Use Excel to create the confidence interval, rounding to four decimal places.

Thus, the 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of fans who bought food from the concession stand, based on this sample, is approximately

Question

Alison, the owner of a regional chain of pizza stores, is trying to decide whether to add calzones to the menu. She conducts a survey of 700 people in the region and asks whether they would order calzones if they were on the menu. 46 people responded “yes.” Create a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of people in the region who would order calzones if they were on the menu.Round your answer to four decimal places

90% CI =

Question

A tax assessor wants to assess the mean property tax bill for all homeowners in a certain state. From a survey ten years ago, a sample of 28 property tax bills is given below. Assume the property tax bills are approximately normally distributed. Use Excel to construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean property tax bill. Round your answers to two decimal places and use increasing order

Thus, the 95% confidence interval for the population mean property tax bill is (1185.91, 1595.59).

Question

The following data represent a sample of the assets (in millions of dollars) of 28 credit unions in a state. Assume that the population in this state is normally distributed with σ=3.5 million dollars. Use Excel to find the 99% confidence interval of the mean assets in millions of dollars. Round your answers to three decimal places and use ascending order

Thus, the 99% confidence interval for μ is

Question

The monthly incomes from a random sample of 20 workers in a factory is given below in dollars. Assume the population has a normal distribution and has standard deviation \$518. Compute a 98% confidence interval for the mean of the population. Round your answers to the nearest dollar and use ascending order

Monthly Income

11621

12367

12030

12135

12561

11453

12313

11561

12424

Thus, the 98% confidence interval for μ, rounded to the nearest integer, is

Question

A study was conducted to estimate the mean age when people buy their first new car. The ages of purchase for 22 randomly selected people are given below. Assume the ages are approximately normally distributed. Use Excel to determine the 99% confidence interval for the mean. Round your answers to two decimal places and use increasing order

Age

19

25

27

23

15

21

22

15

18

Thus, the 99% confidence interval for the mean is

Question

A type of golf ball is tested by dropping it onto a hard surface from a height of 1 meter. The height it bounces is known to be normally distributed. A sample of 25 balls is tested and the bounce heights are given below. Use Excel to find a 95% confidence interval for the mean bounce height of the golf ball. Round your answers to two decimal places and use increasing order

Height

81.4

80.8

84.4

85.6

82.9

76.0

80.0

83.2

95% confidence interval will be:

Question

In a random sample of 2,282 college students, 356 reported getting 8 or more hours of sleep per night. Create a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of college students who get 8 or more hours of sleep per night. Use Excel to create the confidence interval, rounding to four decimal places.

Thus, the 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of college students who get 8 or more hours of sleep per night, based on this sample, is approximately

Question

A large company is concerned about the commute times of its employees. 333 employees were surveyed, and 131 employees said that they had a daily commute longer than 30 minutes. Create a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of employees who have a daily commute longer than 30 minutes. Use Excel to create the confidence interval, rounding to four decimal places.

Thus, the 95% confidence interval for the population proportion of employees who have a daily commute longer than 30 minutes , based on this sample, is approximately (0.3409, 0.4459).

Question

A restaurant is reviewing customer complaints. In a sample of 227 complaints, 57 complaints were about the slow speed of the service. Create a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of complaints that were about the slow speed of the service. Use Excel to create the confidence interval, rounding to four decimal places.
