Given: 500 samples with 90% confidence intervals.
We then expect 90% of the 500 confidence intervals to contains the value of the unknown parameter. 90% x 500=0.90 x 500 = 450
Thus we expect 450 confidence intervals to contains the value of the unknown parameter.

A clinical trial was conducted to test the effectiveness of a drug for treating insomnia in older subjects. Before​ treatment, 13 subjects had a mean wake time of 101.0 min. After​ treatment, the 13 subjects had a mean wake time of 94.6 min and a standard deviation of 24.9 min. Assume that the 13 sample values appear to be from a normally distributed population and construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean wake time for a population with drug treatments. What does the result suggest about the mean wake time of 101.0 min before the​ treatment? Does the drug appear to be​ effective?
Construct the 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean wake time for a population with the treatment.

Suppose that a random sample of 50 bottles of a particular brand of cough syrup is selected and the alcohol content of each bottle is determined. Let j: denote the average alcohol content for the population of all bottles of the brand under study. Suppose that the resulting 95% confidence intervals (7-8, 9.6)
(a) Would 2 90%% confidence interval calculated from this same sample have been narrower or wider than the glven interval? Explain your reasoning.

Unoccupied seats on flights cause airlines to lose revenue. Suppose a large airline wants to estimate its average number of unoccupied seats per flight over the past year. To accomplish this, the records of 200 flights are randomly selected and the number of unoccupied seats is noted for each of the sampled flights. The sample mean is 11.6 seats and the sample standard deviation is 4.3 seats. sx=?, n=?, n1=?. Construct a 92% confidence interval for the population average number of unoccupied seats per flight.

Here are summary statistic for randomly selected weights of newborn girls: n=211, x=33.7hg, s=6.8hg. Construct a confidence intercal estimate of the mean. Use a 90% confidence level. Are these results very different from the confidence interval 32.1hg<μ<34.3hg with only 16 sample values, x=33.2hg, and s=2.6hg?
What is the confidence interval for the population mean μ?
Are the results between the two confidence intervals very different?
a) Yes, because the confidence interval limits are not similar.
b) No, because each confidence interval contains the mean of the other confidence interval.
c) No, because the confidence interval limits are similar
d) Yes, because one confidence interval does not contain the mean of the other confidence interval.
