11 . What is the degrees of freedom ( df ) for this study?

12 . For a two-tailed 95% confidence interval, what is the appropriate t -value to use in the formula?

13 . What is the 95% confidence interval?

14 . What is the 99% confidence interval? Round to two decimal places.

15 . Suppose your sample size had been 30 rather than 20. What would the 95% confidence interval be then? Round to two decimal places

8.3: confidence interval for a population proportion

Use this information to answer the next four exercises. You conduct a poll of 500 randomly selected city residents, asking them if they own an automobile. 280 say they do own an automobile, and 220 say they do not.

16 . Find the sample proportion and sample standard deviation for this data.

17 . What is the 95% two-sided confidence interval? Round to four decimal places.

18 . Calculate the 90% confidence interval. Round to four decimal places.

19 . Calculate the 99% confidence interval. Round to four decimal places.

Use the following information to answer the next three exercises. You are planning to conduct a poll of community members age 65 and older, to determine how many own mobile phones. You want to produce an estimate whose 95% confidence interval will be within four percentage points (plus or minus) the true population proportion. Use an estimated population proportion of 0.5.

20 . What sample size do you need?

21 . Suppose you knew from prior research that the population proportion was 0.6. What sample size would you need?

22 . Suppose you wanted a 95% confidence interval within three percentage points of the population. Assume the population proportion is 0.5. What sample size do you need?

9.1: null and alternate hypotheses

23 . In your state, 58 percent of registered voters in a community are registered as Republicans. You want to conduct a study to see if this also holds up in your community. State the null and alternative hypotheses to test this.

24 . You believe that at least 58 percent of registered voters in a community are registered as Republicans. State the null and alternative hypotheses to test this.

25 . The mean household value in a city is $268,000. You believe that the mean household value in a particular neighborhood is lower than the city average. Write the null and alternative hypotheses to test this.

26 . State the appropriate alternative hypothesis to this null hypothesis: H 0 : μ = 107

27 . State the appropriate alternative hypothesis to this null hypothesis: H 0 : p <0.25

9.2: outcomes and the type i and type ii errors

28 . If you reject H 0 when H 0 is correct, what type of error is this?

29 . If you fail to reject H 0 when H 0 is false, what type of error is this?

30 . What is the relationship between the Type II error and the power of a test?

31 . A new blood test is being developed to screen patients for cancer. Positive results are followed up by a more accurate (and expensive) test. It is assumed that the patient does not have cancer. Describe the null hypothesis, the Type I and Type II errors for this situation, and explain which type of error is more serious.

Questions & Answers

what is the frequency
okoh Reply
Frequency is the number of all object which is comes from population or sample size
Denoted by f
number of all objects?
frequency is the rate of occurrence of an object
Explain nominal and ordinal variables
 nominal variables are those variable which is used to “name,” a series of values.
while  ordinal scales provide good information about the order of choices,for example in a customer satisfaction survey.
what is the difference between Mean and Varience?
Sum of total object, divided by number of object is called mean

What is mean
Probability sampling is based on the fact that every member of a population has a known and equal chance of being selected. For example, if you had a population of 100 people, each person would have odds of 1 out of 100 of being chosen. With non-probability sampling, those odds are not equal.
The Arithmetic Mean is the average of the numbers: a calculated "central" value of a set of numbers.  To calculate it:  • add up all the numbers, • then divide by how many numbers there are. Example: what is the mean of 2, 7 and 9? Add the numbers: 2 + 7 + 9 = 18 Divide by how many numbers, 3 you
