MATH 225N Week 6 Statistics Quiz Chamberlain Week 6 Quiz Question 1 A statistics professor recently graded final exams for students in her introductory statistics course. In a reviewiof her gra... ding, she found the mean score out of 100 points was a x¯=77, with a margin of error of 10. Construct a confidence interval for the mean score (out of 100points) on the final exam. 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 e- books. Question 3 The pages per book in a library are normally distributed with an unknown population mean.Arandom sampleoi f books is taken and results in a 95%confidence interval of (237,293)pages. What is the correct interpretation of the 95% confidence interval? We estimate with 95% confidence that the sample mean is between 237and 293pages. We estimate that 95% of the time abook is selected, there will be between 237 and 293 pages. iWe Question 4 The population standard deviation for the heights of dogs, in inches, in a city is 3.7 inches. If we want tobe 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. 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%.
