Correct me if I am wrong.

That is a mean of 30 and a standard deviation of 23?

a. P(x̄ ≥28 )

answer: 0.8077

b. P(22.1≤ x̄ ≤ 26.8)

answer: 0.0818

c. P(x̄≤ 28.2)

answer: 0.2169

answer: 0.9039


2) Question 2 ( Q4)- The average salary from certain profession is $82,000. Assume that the standard deviation of such salaries is $32,000. Consider a random sample of 58 people in the profession and let x represent the mean salary for the sample.
E. find P (x̄ > 72,500) =

Answer 0.9881


3) Question 3 (Q5)- A random sample of 91 Observation produced a mean x̄ = 25.4 and a standard deviations s=2.4.
a. Find a 95% confidence interval for µ (use intervals or decimals for any numbers in the expression. Round to two decimals places as needed.)

Answer: 24.91 < µ < 25.89


b. Find a 90% confidence interval for µ (use intervals or decimals for any numbers in the expression. Round to two decimals places as needed.)

Answer: 24.99 < µ < 25.81


c. Find a 99% confidence interval for µ (use intervals or decimals for any numbers in the expression. Round to two decimals places as needed.)

Answer: 24.75 < µ < 26.05

Answer: 32.76 < µ < 34.04


b. Find a 95% confidence interval for µ if n= 576

Answer: 33.08 < µ < 33.72

Answer:

width for a is 0.6370

width for b is 0.3185

Answer:

the width is reduced by half
