Ok, If you feel that is too much, I can post all answers at once, and you can add a $30 tip after accepting the answers. That way, it will cost you only $60.

This is what the my teacher said about the first set of questions can you fix it and also explain the answers to the other questions. Should I except the answers now or wait for you to finish I will accept now if you like.

Thanks Perrion

Okay. You have made a great start on these problems. #1 is correct. A short-cut estimate for this can be derived from the Empirical rule to give 95%. The Empirical rule is handy for checking that answers are reasonable. For #2, the answer is correct. However, for full credit, remember to include a couple lines to explain your reasoning and the key steps or ideas used to derive the answer. For instance, since the table gives areas to the left of a given z value, how did you find the answer?

Hi, sorry my network was down and therefore I was late to reply.

Ok, here are the two answers again ...

(1) Since the z- scores for 95% confidence are ± 1.96 (which is close to 2.00), we can say that the area enclosed between z = -2.00 and z = 2.00 is about 95%

a. The maximum error of estimate is a function of three factors: the level of confidence, sample size and standard deviation. T-F, and why or why not?

b. Explain the difference between a point estimate and an interval estimate.

II.

1. Consider a population with µ 63.7 and σ = 4.31.

(A) Calculate the z-score for x = 62.8 from a sample of size 47.

(B) Could this z-score be used in calculating probabilities using Table 3 in Appendix B of the text? Why or why not?

2. Given a level of confidence of 99% and a population standard deviation of 8, answer the following: (A) What other information is necessary to find the sample size (n)? (B) Find the Maximum Error of Estimate (E) if n = 98. Show all work.

3. A sample of 102 golfers showed that their average score on a particular golf course was 88.55 with a standard deviation of 4.27. Answer each of the following (show all work and state the final answer to at least two decimal places.): (A) Find the 95% confidence interval of the mean score for all 102 golfers. (B) Find the 95% confidence interval of the mean score for all golfers if this is a sample of 135 golfers instead of a sample of 102. (C) Which confidence interval is smaller and why?

4. Assume that the population of heights of male college students is approximately normally distributed with mean m of 68.14 inches and standard deviation s of 5.38 inches. A random sample of 66 heights is obtained. Show all work.

(A) Find the mean and standard error of the x distribution (B) Find P(x > 67.25) (THAT IS A LINE OVER BOTH X'S)

(A) What percentage of the grapefruits in this orchard is larger than 5.66 inches? (B) A random sample of 100 grapefruits is gathered and the mean diameter is calculated. What is the probability that the sample mean is greater than 5.66 inches?

6. A researcher is interested in estimating the noise levels in decibels at area urban hospitals. She wants to be 99% confident that her estimate is correct. If the standard deviation is 4.92, how large a sample is needed to get the desired information to be accurate within 0.71 decibels? Show all work.

1. Consider a normal population with µ = 25 and σ = 8.0. (A) Calculate the standard score for a value of 22.

(D)What effect does the answer to C above have to the size of the confidence interval?

3. Assume that the mean score on a certain aptitude test across the nation is 100, and that the standard deviation is 20 points. Find the probability that the mean aptitude test score for a randomly selected group of 150 8th graders is between 101.5 and 98.5.

4. By measuring the amount of time it takes a component of a product to move from one workstation to the next, an engineer has estimated that the standard deviation is 3.63 seconds.

(B) What sample size is required for a maximum error of 0.5 seconds?

There are totally 15 questions with multiple parts in each. I can do all for a $60 bonus (showing all working steps). Please let me know so that I can start the work.
