For a Science fair project, a group of students tested different Materials used to construct kites. The instructor gave to the group an instrument that accurately measures the angle of elevation. In one of the tests, the angle of elevation was 63.4° with 670 ft of string out. Assuming the string was taut, how high was the kite?

\(\sin \theta= \frac{opp}{hyp}\)
\(\sin 63.4°= \frac{x}{670}\)
\(670\sin 63.4°= x\)
\(x \cong 360.5 \implies 360.5\)

In a science fair​ project, Emily conducted an experiment in which she tested professional touch therapists to see if they could sense her energy field. She flipped a coin to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, and then she asked the therapists to identify the selected hand by placing their hand just under​ Emily's hand without seeing it and without touching it. Among 358 ​trials, the touch therapists were correct 172 times. Complete parts​ (a) through​ (d).
a) Given that Emily used a coin toss to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, what proportion of correct responses would be expected if the touch therapists made random​ guesses? ​(Type an integer or a decimal. Do not​ round.)
b) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, what is the best point estimate of the​ therapists' success​ rate? ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.)
c) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, construct a \(\displaystyle{90}​\%\) confidence interval estimate of the proportion of correct responses made by touch therapists.
Round to three decimal places as​ needed - ?\(\displaystyle{<}{p}{<}\)?

Two different analytical tests can be used to determine the impurity level in steel alloys. Nine specimens are tested using both procedures, and the results are shown in the following tabulation.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline Specimen & Test-1 & Test-2 \\ \hline 1 & 1.2 & 1.4 \\ \hline 2 & 1.6 & 1.7 \\ \hline 3 & 1.5 & 1.5 \\ \hline 4 & 1.4 & 1.3 \\ \hline 5 & 1.8 & 2.0 \\ \hline 6 & 1.8 & 2.1 \\ \hline 7 & 1.4 & 1.7 \\ \hline 8 & 1.5 & 1.6 \\ \hline 9 & 1.4 & 1.5 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
Find the \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval for the mean difference of the tests, and explain it.
