2 Solve the problem. 8) A 90% confidence interval for the average salary of all CEOs in the electronics industry was constructed using the results of a random survey of 45 CEOs. The interval was ($139,048, $154,144). Give a practical interpretation of the interval. A) We are 90% confident that the mean salary of all CEOs in the electronics industry falls in the interval $139,048 to $154,144. B) 90% of all CEOs in the electronics industry have salaries that fall between $139,048 to $154,144. C) 90% of the sampled CEOs have salaries that fell in the interval $139,048 to $154,144. D) We are 90% confident that the mean salary of the sampled CEOs falls in the interval $139,048 to $154,144. 8) 9) A retired statistician was interested in determining the average cost of a $200, term life insurance policy for a 60-year-old male non-smoker. He randomly sampled 65 subjects (60-year-old male non-smokers) and constructed the following 95 percent confidence interval for the mean cost of the term life insurance: ($850.00, $ ). State the appropriate interpretation for this confidence interval. Note that all answers begin with "We are 95 percent confidence that " A) The average term life insurance costs for all 60-year-old male non-smokers falls between $ and $ B) The average term life insurance cost for sampled 65 subjects falls between $ and $ C) The term life insurance cost of the retired statistician's insurance policy falls between $ and $ D) The term life insurance cost for all 60-year-old male non-smokers' insurance policies falls between $ and $ ) 10) A marketing research company is estimating the average total compensation of CEOs in the service industry. Data were randomly collected from 18 CEOs and the 98% confidence interval for the mean was calculated to be ($2,181,260, $5,836,180). What additional assumption is necessary for this confidence interval to be valid? A) The distribution of the sample means is approximately normal. B) The population of total compensations of CEOs in the service industry is approximately normally distributed. C) The sample standard deviation is less than the degrees of freedom. D) None. The Central Limit Theorem applies. 10) 11) To help consumers assess the risks they are taking, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) publishes the amount of nicotine found in all commercial brands of cigarettes. A new cigarette has recently been marketed. The FDA tests on this cigarette gave a mean nicotine content of 28.4 milligrams and standard deviation of 2.6 milligrams for a sample of n = 9 cigarettes. The FDA claims that the mean nicotine content exceeds 31.0 milligrams for this brand of cigarette, and their stated reliability is 90%. Do you agree? A) Yes, since the value 31.0 does fall in the 90% confidence interval. B) No, since the value 31.0 does not fall in the 90% confidence interval. C) Yes, since the value 31.0 does not fall in the 90% confidence interval. D) No, since the value 31.0 does fall in the 90% confidence interval. 11) 2

Solve the problem. 17) To help consumers assess the risks they are taking, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) publishes the amount of nicotine found in all commercial brands of cigarettes. A new cigarette has recently been marketed. The FDA tests on this cigarette yielded a mean nicotine content of 24.5 milligrams and standard deviation of 2.3 milligrams for a sample of n = 82 cigarettes. Find a 95% confidence interval for μ. 17) 18) Construct a 98% confidence interval for the population mean, μ. Assume the population has a normal distribution.
