**For a normal population with known variance
σ ^{2}, what**

** **
*x**-**z**α**/2**σ**n**≤**μ**≤**x**+**z**α**/2**σ**n*

solution:

At 98% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 98% = 1 - 0.98 = 0.02

/ 2 = 0.02/ 2 = 0.01

Z/2 = Z0.01 = 2.326 ( Using z table )

Margin of error = E = Z/2
* (
/n)

At 98% confidence interval

is,

- E < < + E

- Z/2 * ( /n) < < + Z/2 * ( /n)

- 2.326 * ( /n) < < + 2.326 * ( /n)

Assume a normal population with known variance σ2, a random
sample (n< 30) is selected. Let x¯,s represent the sample mean
and sample deviation. (1)(2pts) write down the formula: 98%
one-sided confidence interval with upper bound for the
population mean. (2)(6pts) show how to derive the confidence
interval formula in (1).

Suppose we take a random sample X1,…,X5 from a normal population
with unknown variance σ2 and unknown mean μ. We test the
hypotheses
H0:σ=2 vs. H1:σ<2
and we use a critical region of the form {S2<k} for some
constant k.
(1) - Determine k so that the type I error probability α of the
test is equal to 0.05.
(2) - For the value of k found in part (1), what is your
conclusion in this test if you see...
