6 Answer Key Testname: CH 7 SET 1 1) A point estimate is a single value used to approximate a population parameter. The sample mean x is the best point estimate of μ. 2) The margin of error is the maximum likely difference between the observed sample mean x and the true value for the population mean μ. The confidence interval is found by taking the sample mean x and adding the margin of error E to find the high value and subtracting E to find the low value of the interval. In the interval 9.65 < μ < 11.35, the sample mean x is 10.5 and the error estimate E is ) Provided n > 30, the standard normal distribution is the one to use. If n 30, the population must be normal and σ must be known to use the formula. 4) 1) Use the range rule of thumb. 2) Conduct a pilot study and base your estimate of σ on the first collection of at least 31 randomly selected values. 5) We are 95% sure that the interval contains the true population value for mean weekly salaries of shift managers at Guiseppeʹs Pizza and Pasta. 6) C 7) B 8) D 9) B 10) B 11) C 12) A 13) D 14) C 15) D 16) B 17) D 18) A 19) C 20) C 21) A 22) C 23) C 24) D 25) A 26) B 27) B 28) D 29) B 30) C 31) D 32) A 33) A 34) B 35) A 36) B 37) A 38) B 6
