Overproduction of uric acid in the body can be an indication of cell breakdown. This may be an advance indication of illness such as gout, leukemia, or lymphoma. Over a period of months, an adult male patient has taken eight blood tests for uric acid. The mean concentration was \(\bar{x}=5.35 \mathrm{mg} / \mathrm{dl.}\) The distribution of uric acid in healthy adult males can be assumed to be normal, with \(\sigma=1.85 \mathrm{mg} / \mathrm{dl}\) .Find a 95% confidence interval for the population mean concentration of uric acid in this patient's blood. What is the margin of error?

Overproduction of uric acid in the body can be an indication of cell breakdown. This may be an advance indication of illness such as gout, leukemia, or lymphoma. Over a period of months, an adult male patient has taken eight blood tests for uric acid. The mean concentration was \(\displaystyle{x}={5.35}{m}\frac{g}{{dl}}\). The distribution of uric acid in healthy adult males can be assumed to be normal with \(\displaystyle\sigma={1.85}{m}\frac{g}{{dl}} \sigma={1.85}{m}\frac{g}{{dl}}\).

Overproduction of uric acid in the body can be an indication of cell breakdown. This may be an advance indication of illness such as gout, leukemia, or lymphoma. Over a period of months, an adult male patient has taken eight blood tests for uric acid. The mean concentration was x¯=5.35mg/dl. The distribution of uric acid in healthy adult males can be assumed to be normal with σ=1.85mg/dlσ=1.85mg/dl. Give a brief interpretation of your results in the context of this problem.

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.
