1 Practice problems for Homework 1 - confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. Read sections and 10.3 of the text. Solve the practice problems below. Open the Homework Assignment 1 and solve the problems. Notice that Quiz 1 covers confidence intervals. So, do problems 1,, 3, 4, 5, 6a, 7a before the next quiz. 1. (10 marks) A sample of size n 100 produced the sample mean of X 16. Assuming the population standard deviation σ 3, compute a 95% confidence interval for the population mean µ.. (10 marks) Assuming the population standard deviation σ 3, how large should a sample be to estimate the population mean µ with a margin of error not exceeding 0.5? 3. (10 marks) We observed 8 successes in 70 independent Bernoulli trials. Compute a 90% confidence interval for the population proportion p. 4. (10 marks) The operations manager of a large production plant would like to estimate the mean amount of time a worker takes to assemble a new electronic component. Assume that the standard deviation of this assembly time is 3.6 minutes. a) After observing 10 workers assembling similar devices, the manager noticed that their average time was 16. minutes. Construct a 9% confidence interval for the mean assembly time. b) How many workers should be involved in this study in order to have the mean assembly time estimated up to ±15 seconds with 9% confidence? 5. (10 marks) Suppose a consumer advocacy group would like to conduct a survey to find the proportion p of consumers who bought the newest generation of an MP3 player were happy with their purchase. a) How large a sample n should they take to estimate p with % margin of error and 90% confidence? 1

2 b) The advocacy group took a random sample of 1000 consumers who recently purchased this MP3 player and found that 400 were happy with their purchase. Find a 95% confidence interval for p. 6. (10 marks) In order to ensure efficient usage of a server, it is necessary to estimate the mean number of concurrent users. According to records, the sample mean and sample standard deviation of number of concurrent users at 100 randomly selected times is 37.7 and 9., respectively. a) Construct a 90% confidence interval for the mean number of concurrent users. b) Do these data provide significant evidence, at 1% significance level, that the mean number of concurrent users is greater than 35? 7. (10 marks) To assess the accuracy of a laboratory scale, a standard weight that is known to weigh 1 gram is repeatedly weighed 4 times. The resulting measurements (in grams) are: 0.95, 1.0, 1.01, Assume that the weighings by the scale when the true weight is 1 gram are normally distributed with mean µ. a) Use these data to compute a 95% confidence interval for µ. b) Do these data give evidence at 5% significance level that the scale is not accurate? Answer this question by performing an appropriate test of hypothesis. 8. (10 marks) In their advertisements, a new diet program would like to claim that their program results in a mean weight loss (µ) of more than 10 pounds in two weeks. To determine if this is a valid claim, the makers of the diet should test the null hypothesis H 0 : µ 10 against the alternative hypothesis: (A) H 1 : µ < 10 (B) H 1 : µ > 10 (C) H 1 : µ 10 (D) H 1 : µ 0 (E) None of the above 9. (10 marks) Suppose we would like to estimate the mean amount of money (µ) spent on books by CS students in a semester. We have thefollowing data from 10 randomly selected CS students:x $49 and S$30. Assume that the amount spenton books by CS students is normally distributed. To compute a 95% confidence for µ, we will use the following critical point: (A) z (B) z

3 (C) t 9, (D) t 10, (E) t 9, (10 marks) Installation of a certain hardware takes a random amount of time with a standard deviation of 5 minutes. A computer technician installs this hardware on 64 different computers, with the average installation time of 4 minutes. Compute a 95% confidence interval for the mean installation time. 11. (10 marks) An exit poll of 1000 randomly selected voters found that 515 favored candidate A. Is the race too close to call? Answer this question by performing an appropriate test of hypothesis at 1% level of significance. 1. (10 marks) Bags of a certain brand of tortilla chips claim to have a net weight of 14 ounces. The net weights actually vary slightly from bag to bag and are normally distributed with mean µ. A representative of a consumer advocacy group wishes to see if there is any evidence that the mean net weight is less than advertised. For this, the representative randomly selects 16 bags of this brand and determines the net weight of each. He finds the sample mean to be X 13.8 and the sample standard deviation to be S 0.4. Use these data to perform an appropriate test of hypothesis at 5% significance level. 13. (10 marks) The time needed for college students to complete a certain maze follows a normal distribution with a mean of 45 seconds. To see if the mean time time µ (in seconds) is changed by vigorous exercise, we have a group of nine college students exercise vigorously for 30 minutes and then complete the maze. The sample mean and standard deviation of the collected data is 49. seconds and 3.5 seconds respectively. Use these data to perform an appropriate test of hypothesis at 5% level of significance. 3

4 Solutions: 1. A 95% confidence interval for µ is X ± z α/ σ n. where α 0.05, so z α/ z from the table of Normal distribution. Then, the 95% confidence interval for µ is 3 16 ± (1.96) 16 ± [15.41, ] 100 n (z α/ σ/ ), where α 0.05, the critical value z α/ z , and the required margin 0.5. Then we need a sample size of i.e., we need a sample of size at least 139. ( ) (1.96)(3) n 138.3, A 90% confidence interval for p is ˆp ± z α/ ˆp(1 ˆp) n where the sample proportion ˆp 8/ and the sample size n 70. Then, the 90% confidence interval for p is ± (1.645) (0.4)(0.6) ± [0.304, 0.496]. Let µ denote the mean assembly time (in minutes). It is given that σ 3.6 min. 4

5 a) We want a 9% confidence interval for µ based on the following information: n 10, X 16. min, α , and σ 3.6 min. Since σ is known, we will use the z-interval: X ± z α/ σ n 16. ± (1.75) ± [15.6, 16.8], where z obtained from the normal table. Thus, the mean assembly time for a worker is estimated to be between 15.6 min and 16.8 min, with 9% confidence. b) We need to compute the sample size n based on the following information: α 0.08, σ 3.6, and margin for error E 15 sec 0.5 min. Thus, (zα/ σ ) (1.75(3.6) ) n 636. E 0.5 Thus, 636 workers are need in the study to achieve the desired precision of inference. 5. a) It is given that margin of error E 0.0 and α Using p 0.5 as the conservative guess in the sample size formula gives, n p(1 p) ( z α/ /E ) (zα/ /{E} ) (1.645/0.04) b) From the data, ˆp 400/ Since n 1000 is large, the 90% confidence interval for p is: ˆp ± z α/ ˆp(1 ˆp)/n 0.40 ± (0.60)/1000 [0.375, 0.45]. Thus, between 37.5% to 4.5% consumers are estimated to be happy with their purchase. Let µ denote the mean number of concurrent users in the population. It is given that n 100, X 37.7 and S 9.. a) We want a 90\% confidence interval for $\mu$. Since n is large, we will use the largesample z-interval: X ± z α/ S n. From the normal table, z Thus, the desired confidence interval is: 5

6 37.7 ± (1.645) ± 1.5 [36., 39.]. b) We need to test the null H 0 : µ 35 against the one-sided alternative H 1 : µ > 35, at level α Since n is large, we will do a large-sample z-test. The rejection region is Z > z α.33, using the normal table. The test statistic is Z X µ 0 S/ n / Since Z.93 >.33, H 0 is rejected. Thus, there is significant evidence at 1% significance level that the mean number of concurrent users is greater than a. From the given data, we have: n 4, X 0.99 and S Since n is small and the data are normally distributed we will use the t-interval: X ± t n 1,α/ S n 0.99 ± ± 0.05 [0.94, 1.04]. Thus, the mean weight is estimated to be between 0.94 to 1.04 grams, with 95% confidence. b. We need to test the null hypothesis H 0 : µ 1 against the two-sided alternative H 1 : µ 1. Since the null value of µ 1 falls in the 95% confidence interval computed in the previous part, it follows that the 5% level test of does not reject H 0. Thus, there is no evidence at 5% significance level that the scale is inaccurate. 8. B is the right answer C. We want to use a t-interval because the population standard deviation σ is not given. The critical point in this case is t n 1,α/. Let µ denote the mean installation time (in minutes). We want a 95% confidence interval for µ. The following quantities are given: 1 α 0.95, n 64, X 4 min, and σ 5 min. Since σ is known, we will use the z-interval: 6

7 11. X ± z α/ σ n 4 ± (1.96) ± 1.5 [40.8, 43.], where z is obtained from the normal table.thus, the mean installation time is estimated to be between 40.8 min and 43. min, with 95% confidence. Let p denote the proportion of voters who favor candidate A. From the data, ˆp 515/ We would like to test the null hypothesis H 0 : p 0.5 against the two-sided alternative H 1 : p 0.5, at α Since n 1000 is large, we will do a large-sample z-test. The rejection rejection is Z > z α/.576, using the normal table. The test statistic is: Z ˆp p 0 p0 (1 p 0 )/n ( )/ / Since Z <.576, H 0 is not rejected. Thus, the race is too close to call. We need to test the null hypothesis H 0 : µ 14 against the one-sided alternative hypothesis H 1 : µ < 14, at level α Since n 16 is small and the data are normally distributed, we will do a t-test. The rejection region is T < t n 1,α t 15, , using the t-table. The test statistic is T X µ 0 S/ n /4 3 Since T 3 < 1.753, H 0 is rejected. Thus, there is evidence at 5% significance level that the mean weight is less than advertised. We need to test the null H 0 : µ 45 against the two-sided alternative H 1 : µ 45, at level α It is given that n 9, X 49. and S 3.5. Since n is small and the data are normally distributed, we will do a t-test. The rejection region is T > t n 1,α/ t 8, , using the t-table. The test statistic is T X µ 0 S/ n / Since T 3.6 >.306, H 0 is rejected. Thus, there is significant evidence at 5% significance level that the mean time to complete the maze is changed after the exercise. 7
