1 Student: Date: Instructor: Doug Ensley Course: MAT Applied Statistics  Ensley Assignment: Online 15  Sections A survey asked the question "What do you think is the ideal number of children for a family to have?" The 547 females who responded had a median of 2, mean of 3.15, and standard deviation of Answer parts ad. a. What is the point estimate of the population mean? b. Find the standard error of the sample mean. standard error = (Round to three decimal places as needed.) c. The 95% confidence interval is ( 3.01, 3.29). Interpret. A.

Variable N Mean Std Dev SE Mean 95.0% CI News ( 3.531, 5.069) a. Is it plausible that μ = 7, where μ is the population mean for all respondents? Explain. A. Yes, because 7 is within the 95% confidence interval given in the software results. B. No, because 7 is well outside the 95% confidence interval given in the software results. C. No, because 7 is within the 95% confidence interval given in the software results. D. Yes, because 7 is well outside the 95% confidence interval given in the software results. b. Suppose that the sample size had been 240, with x = 4.3 and s = 3.1. Use technology to find a 95% confidence interval. Describe the effect of sample size on the margin of error. The 95% confidence interval is (, ). (Round to one decimal place as needed.) Compare the confidence interval found in the previous step to the one reported. What effect does sample size have on the margin of error? A. As sample size increases, the margin of error does not change. B. As sample size increases, the margin of error becomes smaller. C. As sample size increases, the margin of error becomes larger. c. Does it seem plausible that the population distribution of this variable is normal? Why? A. No, because there will be many students who do not read a newspaper but some students who read at least one newspaper every day. The distribution is likely to be skewed right. B. No, because there will be a few students who do not read a newspaper, many students who occasionally read a newspaper, and a few students who read at least one newspaper every day. The distribution is not likely to be normal. C. No, because there will be a few students who do not read a newspaper but many students who read at least one newspaper every day. The distribution is likely to be skewed left. D. Yes, because there will be a few students who do not read a newspaper, many students who occasionally read a newspaper, and a few students who read at least one newspaper every day. The distribution is likely to be normal. d. Explain the implications of the term "robust" regarding the normality assumption made to conduct this analysis. Choose the correct answer below. A. The term "robust" means that even if the normality assumption is not completely met, this analysis is still likely to produce valid results. B. The term "robust" means that even if the normality assumption is completely met, this analysis is not likely to produce valid results. C. The term "robust" means that if the normality assumption is not completely met, this analysis is likely to produce invalid results. ID: T 12 of 14
13 D. We can be 95% confident that the mean number of children that females would like to have is between 3.01 and C. No, because 2 falls outside the confidence interval B.
