1 Name Test 10 Confidence Intervals Homework (Chpt 10.1, 11.1, 12.1) Period For 1 & 2, determine the point estimator you would use and calculate its value. 1. How many pairs of shoes, on average, do female teens have? To find out, an AP Statistics class conducted a survey. They selected an SRS of 20 female students from their school. Then they recorded the number of pairs of shoes that each student reported having. Here are the data: Point estimator would be the sample mean, x, x = Tonya wants to estimate what proportion of the seniors in her school plan to attend the prom. She interviews an SRS of 50 of the 750 seniors in her school and finds that 36 plan to go to the prom. Point estimator would be the sample proportion, p, p = = Young people have a better chance of fulltime employment and good wages if they are good with numbers. One source of data is the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Young Adult Literacy Assessment Survey, which is based on a nationwide probability sample of households. The NAEP survey includes a short test of quantitative skills and scores on the test range from 0 to 500. Suppose that you give the NAEP test to an SRS of 840 people from a large population in which the scores have mean 280 and standard deviation σσ = 60. The mean x of the 840 scores will vary if you take repeated samples. a) Describe the shape, center, and spread of the sampling distribution of x. We can t verify that the population distribution is Normal, but since n = 840 the CLT says the sampling distribution will be approximately Normal. 10% condition: 10(840) = 8400; there are at least 8400 people in the population μμ x = μμ = 280; σσ x = 60 = N(280, ) 840 b) Sketch the sampling distribution of x. Mark its mean and the values one, two, and three standard deviations on either side of the mean c) According to the rule, about 95% of all values of x lie within a distance m of the mean of the sampling distribution. What is m? Shade the region on the axis of your sketch that is within m of the mean. 2 standard deviations, m = 2(2.0702) = d) Whenever x falls in the region you shaded, the population μμ lies in the confidence interval x ± m. For what percent of all possible samples does this interval capture μμ? 95% of all samples will capture μμ. e) Below your sketch, choose one value of x inside the shaded region and draw its corresponding confidence interval. Do the same for one value of x outside the shaded region. What is the most important difference between these intervals? One captures μμ, the other does not.
2 4. The figure to the right shows the result of taking 25 SRSs from a Normal population and constructing a confidence interval for each sample. Which confidence level 80%, 90%, 95%, or 99%  do you think was used? Explain. 5. A New York Times/CBS News Poll asked the question, Do you favor an amendment to the Constitution that would permit organized prayer in public schools? Sixtysix percent of the sample answered Yes. The article describing the poll says that it is based on telephone interviews conducted from Sept. 13 to Sept. 18 with 1,664 adults around the United States, excluding Alaska and Hawaii The telephone numbers were formed by random digits, thus permitting access to both listed and unlisted residential numbers. The article gives the margin of error for a 95% confidence level as 3 percentage points. a) Explain what the margin of error means to someone who knows little statistics. If we were to repeat the sampling procedure many times, the sample proportion would be within 3 percentage points of the true proportion in 95% of the intervals. b) State and interpret the 95% confidence interval. (.63,.69) We are 95% confident that the interval from.63 to.69 captures the true proportion of those who favor an amendment to the Constitution that would permit organized prayer in school. c) Interpret the confidence level. The method that was used to construct the interval will capture the true proportion of those who favor an amendment to the Constitution that would permit organized prayer in school about 95% of the time in repeated sampling. 6. The news article in problem 5 goes on to say: The theoretical errors do not take into account a margin of additional error resulting from the various practical difficulties in taking an survey of public opinion. List some of the practical difficulties that may cause errors in addition to the ±3 percentage point margin of error. Nonresponse and undercoverage of those who do not have telephones or have only cell phones. 7. A 95% confidence interval for the mean body mass index (BMI) of young American women in 26.8 ± 0.6. Discuss whether each of the following explanations is correct. a) We are confident that 95% of all young women have BMI between 26.2 and INCORRECT the interval is for the mean, not individuals b) We are 95% confident that future samples of young women will have mean BMI between 26.2 and INCORRECT we are not predicting for samples c) Any value from 26.2 to 27.4 is believable as the true mean BMI of young American women. CORRECT provided an interval of plausible values for μμ d) In 95% of all possible samples, the population mean BMI will be between 26.2 and INCORRECT μμ is constant, it s either in the interval or it s not e) The mean BMI of young American women cannot be 28. INCORRECT our interval may be one that missed μμ
3 8. A researcher plans to use a random sample of n = 500 families to estimate the mean monthly family income for a large population. A 99% confidence interval based on the sample would be than a 90% confidence interval. a) narrower and would involve a larger risk of being incorrect b) wider and would involve a smaller risk of being incorrect c) narrower and would involve a smaller risk of being incorrect d) wider and would involve a larger risk of being incorrect e) wider, but it cannot be determined whether the risk of being incorrect would be larger or smaller 9. You have measured the systolic blood pressure of an SRS of 25 company employees. A 95% confidence interval for the mean systolic blood pressure for the employees of this company is (122, 138). Which of the following statements gives a valid interpretation of this interval? a) 95% of the sample of employees have a systolic blood pressure between 122 and 138. b) 95% of the population of employees have a systolic blood pressure between 122 and 138. c) If the procedure were repeated many times, 95% of the resulting confidence intervals would contain the population mean systolic blood pressure. d) The probability that the population mean blood pressure is between 122 and 138 is e) If the procedure were repeated many time, 95% of the sample means would be between 122 and 138. For 10 & 11, check whether each of the conditions is met for calculating a confidence interval for the population proportion p. 10. Latoya wants to estimate what proportion of the seniors at her boarding high school like the cafeteria food. She interviews an SRS of 50 of the 175 seniors living in the dormitory. She finds that 14 think the cafeteria food is good. RANDOM stated SRS NORMAL 14 yes, 36 no; both > 10 INDEPENDENT No, 10(50) = 500 but the population is only In the National AIDS Behavioral Surveys sample of 2673 adult heterosexuals, 0.2% had both received a blood transfusion and had a sexual partner from a group at high risk of AIDS. We want to estimate the proportion p in the population who share these two risk factors. RANDOM?? not sure it doesn t state how the sample was obtained NORMAL no..002(2673) = which is < 10 INDEPENDENT 10(2673) = 26730; there are more than adult heterosexuals 12. Find z * for a 98% confidence interval using Table A or your calculator. Show your method. Using a table, draw a curve and mark the middle 98%. There will be 1% on each side. Look up.0100 on Table A and the corresponding zscore is 2.33 so z* = Using Table B z* = On the calculator: invnorm(.01, 0, 1) =
4 13. Tonya wants to estimate what proportion of her school s seniors plan to attend the prom. She interviews an SRS of 50 of the 750 seniors in her school and finds that 36 plan to go to the prom. a) Identify the population and parameter of interest. Population: seniors at Tonya s high school Parameter: true proportion who plan to attend prom b) Check conditions for constructing a confidence interval for the parameter. RANDOM stated SRS NORMAL 36 yes, 14 no; both > 10 INDEPENDENT Yes, 10(50) = 500 and there are 750 seniors at her school c) Construct a 90% confidence interval for p. Show your method. 90% confidence z* = onesample zinterval for p; conditions have been met 1propzint(36, 50,.9) OR p = 36 = ± (.28) (. 616,.824) d) Interpret the interval in context. We are 90% confident that the interval from.616 to.824 captures the true proportion of seniors who plan to attend the prom. 14. In a Harvard School of Public Health survey, 2105 of 10,904 randomly selected U.S. college students were classified a abstainers (nondrinkers). a) Construct and interpret a 99% confidence interval for p. Follow the process. Parameter: true proportion of U.S. college students who abstain from drinking 99% confidence z* = onesample z interval for p if conditions are met RANDOM stated randomly selected NORMAL 2105 yes, 8799 no; both > 10 INDEPENDENT Yes, 10(10904) = and there are more than U.S. college students 1propzint(2105, 10904,.99) OR p = 2105 = ± (.807) (. 183,.203) We are 99% confident that the interval from.183 to.203 captures the true proportion of U.S. college students who are classified as abstainers. b) A newspaper article claims that 25% of U.S. college students are nondrinkers. Use your result from (a) to comment on this claim. The value of 25% (.25) does not appear in our 99% confidence interval so it would be very surprising if the claim were correct. It could be in the 1%. c) Describe a possible source of error that is not included in the margin of error for the 99% confidence interval. Response bias: whether students told the truth or not 15. A random sample of students who took the SAT college entrance examination twice found that 427 of the respondents had paid for coaching courses and that the remaining 2733 had not. Construct and interpret a 99% confidence interval for the proportion of coaching among students who retake the SAT. Follow the process. Parameter: true proportion of students who got coaching to retake the SAT 99% confidence z* = onesample z interval for p if conditions are met RANDOM stated random sample NORMAL 427 successes, 2733 failures; both > 10 INDEPENDENT Yes, 10(3160) = and there are more than students who take the SAT twice 1propzint(427, 3160,.99) OR p = 427 = ± (.865) (. 119,.151) We are 99% confident that the interval from.119 to.151 captures the true proportion of students taking the SAT twice who receive coaching.
5 16. A television news program conducts a callin poll about a proposed city ban on handgun ownership. Of the 2372 calls, 1921 oppose the ban. The station, following recommended practice, makes a confidence statement: 81% of the Channel 13 Pulse Poll sample opposed the ban. We can be 95% confident that the true proportion of citizens opposing a handgun ban is within 1.6% of the sample result. a) Is the station s quoted 1.6% margin of error correct? Explain. Mathematically it is correct (1propzint(1921, 2372,.95) = (.79407,.82566);.03159/2 = ), but the RANDOM condition was not met so they should not calculate a confidence interval. b) Is the station s conclusion justified? Explain. NO. This was a voluntary response sample so no inference should be made. 17. PTC is a substance that has a strong bitter taste for some people and is tasteless for others. The ability to taste PTC is inherited. About 75% of Italians can taste PTC, for example. You want to estimate the proportion of Americans who have at least one Italian grandparent and who can taste PTC. a) How large a sample must you test to estimate the proportion of PTC tasters within 0.04 with 90% confidence? Answer this question using the 75% estimate as the guessed value for p. ME z p (1 p ) n (.25) n n A sample size of 318 is needed b) Answer the question in part (a) again, but this time use the conservative guess p = 0.5. By how much do the two sample sizes differ? ME z p (1 p ) n OR n z 2ME 2 n (.04) 2 n A sample size of 423 is needed = 105, the samples differ by 105, 18. Gloria Chavez and Ronald Flynn are the candidates for mayor in a large city. We want to estimate the proportion p of all registered voters in the city who plan to vote for Chavez with 95% confidence and a margin of error no greater than How large a random sample do we need? Show your work. ME z p (1 p ) n OR n z 2ME 2 n (.03) 2 n A sample size of 1068 is needed 19. The body mass index (BMI) of all American young women is believed to follow a Normal distribution with a standard deviation of about 7.5. How large a sample would be needed to estimate the mean BMI μμ in this population to within ±1 with 99% confidence? Show your work. ME z σ OR n σ z ME 2 n 2.576(7.5) 2 n A sample size of 374 is needed Biologists studying the healing of skin wounds measured the rate at which new cells closed a razor cut made in the skin of an anesthetized newt. Suppose you know that the standard deviation of healing rates for this species of newt is 8 micrometers per hour. How large a sample would enable you to estimate the mean healing rate of skin wounds in newts within a margin of error of 1 micrometer per hour with 90% confidence? ME z σ OR n σ z ME 2 n 1.645(8) 2 n A sample size of 174 is needed What critical value t * from Table B would you use for a confidence interval for the population mean in each of the following situations? a) A 95% confidence interval based on n = 10 observations. 95% n = 10 df = 9 t = b) A 99% confidence interval from an SRS of 20 observations. 99% n = 20 df = 19 t = 2.861
6 22. A medical study finds that x = and s x = 9.3 for the seated systolic blood pressure of the 27 members of one treatment group. What is the standard error of the mean? s x In repeated sampling, the average distance between sample means and the population mean will be about units. 23. Computers in some vehicles calculate various quantities related to performance. One of these is fuel efficiency, or gas mileage, usually expressed as miles per gallon (mpg). For one vehicle equipped in this way, the miles per gallon were recorded each time the gas tank was filled and the computer was then reset. Here are the mpg values for a random sample of 20 of these records: Construct and interpret a 95% confidence interval for the mean fuel efficiency μμ for this vehicle. Parameter: true mean fuel efficiency for this vehicle 95% confidence onesample t interval for μμ if conditions are met RANDOM stated random sample NORMAL boxplot does not show strong skewness or outliers INDEPENDENT Yes, 10(20) = 200 and there are most likely more than 200 fillups x = s x = % n = 20 df = 19 t = tint(18.48, 3.116, 20,.95) OR x ± t s x ± (17.022, ) We are 95% confident that the interval from to captures the true mean mpg for this vehicle. 24. What critical value t * from Table B would you use for a 99% confidence interval for the population mean based on an SRS of size 58? If possible, use technology to find a more accurate value of t *. What advantage does the more accurate df provide? 99% n = 58 df = 57 use df = 50 t = technology: invt(. 005, 57) = Using exact df gives a smaller t* and therefore a shorter interval with the same level of confidence. 25. In each of the following situations, discuss whether it would be appropriate to construct a onesample t interval to estimate the population mean. a) We collect data from a random sample of adult residents in a state. Our goal is to estimate the overall percent of adults in the state who are college graduates. NO, the goal is to estimate a population proportion, not a population mean. b) The coach of a college men s basketball team records the resting heart rates of the 15 team members. We use these data to construct a confidence interval for the mean resting heart rate of all male students at this college. NO, the sample was team members, not all male students at the college. c) We want to estimate the average age at which U.S. presidents have died. So we obtain a list of all U.S. presidents who have died and their ages at death. NO, we don t need to estimate, we have the data to calculate it. d) How much time do students spend on the Internet? We collect data from the 32 members of our AP Statistics class and calculate the mean amount of time that each student spent on the Internet yesterday. NO, the sample was AP Statistics students, not all students.
7 26. One reason for using a t distribution instead of the standard Normal curve to find critical values when calculating a level C confidence interval for a population mean is that a) z can be used only for large samples. b) z requires that you know the population standard deviation σσ. c) z requires that you can regard your data as an SRS from the population d) the standard Normal table doesn t include confidence levels at the bottom. e) a z critical value will lead to a wider interval than a t critical value. 27. A quality control inspector will measure the salt content (in milligrams) in a random sample of bags of potato chips from an hour of production. Which of the following would result in the smallest margin of error in estimating the mean salt content μμ? a) 90% confidence; n = 25 b) 90% confidence; n = 50 c) 95% confidence; n = 25 d) 95% confidence; n = 50 e) n = 100 at any confidence level For go through the entire process for constructing a confidence interval: 1. Identify the parameter and confidence level 2. Identify appropriate inference method. Check conditions. 3. If the conditions are met, perform calculations 4. Interpret the interval in the context of the problem 28. The scores of a certain population on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) are thought to be Normally distributed with mean μμ and standard deviation σσ = 10. A simple random sample of 25 children from this population is taken and each is given the WISC. The mean of the 25 scores is x = Based on this data, construct a 95% confidence interval for μμ. Parameter and Confidence Level: true population mean score on 95% confidence Method and Conditions: σσ is known so onesample z interval for μμ if conditions are met RANDOM stated SRS of n = 25 NORMAL population is Normally distributed so sampling distribution will be Normal INDEPENDENT Yes, 10(25) = 250 and there are more than 250 children Calculations: zint(10, , 25,.95) OR x ± z σ ± ± 3.92 (100.4, ) 25 Interpret: We are 95% confident that the interval from to captures the true mean score on the WISC. 29. Scores on the Math SAT (SATM) are believed to be normally distributed with mean μμ. The scores of a random sample of three students who recently took the exam are 550, 620, and 480. Construct a 95% confidence interval for μμ based on this data. Parameter and Confidence Level: true population mean score on 95% confidence Method and Conditions: σσ is unknown so onesample t interval for μμ if conditions are met RANDOM stated SRS of n = 3 NORMAL population is Normally distributed so sampling distribution will be Normal INDEPENDENT Yes, 10(3) = 30 and there are more than 30 students taking the SATM Calculations: tint(550, 70, 3,.95) OR x ± t s x 550 ± ± ( , ) Interpret: We are 95% confident that the interval from to captures the true mean score on the SATM.
8 30. In the fiscal year 1996, the U.S. Agency for International Development provided 238,300 metric tons of corn soy blend (CSB) for development programs and emergency relief in countries throughout the world. CSB is a highly nutritious, lowcost fortified food that is partially precooked and can be incorporated into different food preparations by the recipients. As part of a study to evaluate appropriate vitamin C levels in this commodity, measurements were taken on samples of CSB produced in a factory. The following data are the amounts of vitamin C, measured in milligrams per 100 grams (mg/100g) of blend (dry basis), for a random sample of size 8 from a production run: Construct a 99% confidence interval for μμ. Parameter and Confidence Level: true population mean amount of Vitamin C (in 99% confidence Method and Conditions: σσ is unknown so onesample t interval for μμ if conditions are met RANDOM stated random sample of n = 8 NORMAL boxplot shows no outliers and no strong skewness INDEPENDENT Yes, 10(8) = 80 and it is reasonable to assume there are more than 80 samples of CSB produced in a production run Calculations: x = 22.5 s x = % n = 8 df = 7 t = tint(22.5, , 8,.99) OR x ± t s x 22.5 ± ± (16.603, ) Interpret: We are 99% confident that the interval from mg/100mg to mg/100mg captures the true mean amount of Vitamin C (in mg/100mg) of CSB.
