Question 1 of 201.0 PointsAccepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values.For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.You are trying to estimate the average amount a family spends on food during a year. In the past, the standard deviation of the amount a family has spent on food during a year has been $1200. If you want to be 99% sure that you have estimated average family food expenditures within $60, how many families do you need to survey?

What is the 95% confidence interval estimate for the variance of life expectancy in Europe?Reset SelectionQuestion 10 of 201.0 PointsIn constructing a confidence interval estimate for a population mean, when we replace with the sample standard deviation (s), we introduce a new source of variability and the sampling distribution we use is:Reset SelectionQuestion 11 of 201.0 PointsFind the 95% confidence interval for the standard deviation of the lengths of pipes if a sample of 26 pipes has a standard deviation of 10 inches.Reset SelectionQuestion 12 of 201.0 PointsIf you are constructing a confidence interval for a single mean, the confidence interval will___________ with an increase in the sample size.Reset SelectionQuestion 13 of 201.0 PointsThe average gas mileage of a certain model car is 26 miles per gallon. If the gas mileages are normally distributed with a standard deviation of 1.3, find the probability that a randomly selected car of this model has a gas mileage between 25.8 and 26.3 miles per gallon.Reset SelectionQuestion 14 of 201.0 PointsConfidence intervals are a function of which of the following three things?Reset SelectionQuestion 15 of 201.0 PointsThe t- distribution for developing a confidence interval for a mean has _____ degrees of freedom.Reset SelectionQuestion 16 of 201.0 PointsA researcher wishes to know, with 98% confidence, the percentage of women who wear shoes that are too small for their feet. A previous study conducted by the Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons found that 80% of women wear shoes that are too small for their feet. If the researcher wants her estimate to be within 3% of the true proportion, how large a sample is necessary?Reset SelectionQuestion 17 of 201.0 PointsFrom a sample of 500 items, 30 were found to be defective.
