**A group of 10, foot - surgery patients had a mean weight of 240 pounds. The sample standard deviation was 25 pounds. Find a confidence interval for a sample for the true mean weight of all foot – surgery patients. Find a 95% Confidence Interval.**

**510 people applied to the Bachelor’s in Elementary Education program at Florida State College. Of those applicants, 57 were men. Find the 90% Confidence Interval of the true proportion of men who applied to the program.**

**A study revealed that 65% of men surveyed supported the war in Afghanistan and 33% of women supported the war. If 100 men and 75 women were surveyed, find the 90% confidence interval for the data’s true difference in proportions.**

1)

Confidence interval(CI) for normal distribution is (-z*/, +z*/)

here =101.82

n=6, =1.2

and Z value will be 1.96 which corresponds to (100-95)/2 %= 2.5%

z*/= 0.96

Therefore CI will be (101.82-0.96,101.82+0.96)= (100.86,102.78)

2)

Here we will use a t-distribution because n<30 and population mean is given as well .

Confidence interval(CI) for t-distribution is (-t*s/, +t*s/)

here =240

n=10, s=25

df=n-1 =10-1=9

By looking up in t-distribution table we find the value for df=9 and 2.5% value we get t=2.262

t*s/= 17.88

Therefore CI will be (240-17.88,240+17.88)= (222.12,257.88)

3)

CI for population proportion is( , )

n=510

Here alpha=1-0.9 =0.1

Z value for alpha/2 (.1/2=.05) is 0.13 ( By looking in the z table)

=57/510=0.112

1-=1-.112=0.888

=0.00182

Therefore CI will be (0.112-0.00182,0.112+0.00182)=(0.11018,0.11382)

4)

CI for difference in proportions is

( , )

n1=100,n2=75

=0.65

=0.33

= 1-0.65=0.35

=1-.33=0.67

Since it is the same 90% confidence interval as in previous sum z value will be 0.13

=0.0098

=0.65-0.33=0.32

Therefore CI will be (0.32-0.0098,0.32+0.0098)=(31.9902,32.0098)

Problem:
Construct and interpret a 90%, 95%, and 99% confidence interval for
the mean heights of either adult females or the average height of
adult males living in America. Do not mix genders in your sample as
this will skew your results. Gather a random sample of size 30 of
heights from your friends, family, church members, strangers, etc.
by asking each individual in your sample his or her height. From
your raw data convert individual heights to inches....

Refer to the accompanying data set and construct a 95%
confidence interval estimate of the mean pulse rate of adult
females; then do the same for adult males. Compare the results.

a 95% confidence interval for the population mean for each of the
samples below. Explain why these two samples produce different
confidence intervals even though they have the same mean and
range.
