What is meant by the term “90% confident” when constructing a confidence interval for a mean? a. If we took repeated samples, approximately 90% of the samples would produce the same confidence interval. b. If we took repeated samples, approximately 90% of the confidence intervals calculated from those samples would contain the sample mean. c. If we took repeated samples, approximately 90% of the confidence intervals calculated from those samples would contain the true value of the population mean. d. If we took repeated samples, the sample mean would equal the population mean in approximately 90% of the samples.

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.
(b) Consider the following statement: There is 9 95% chance that Is between 7.8 and 9.6. Is this statement correct? Why or why not?
(c) Consider the following statement: We can be highly confident that 95% of al bottles ofthis type of cough syrup have an alcohol content that is between 7.8 and 9.6. Is this statement correct? Why or why not?

A random sample of 100 automobile owners in the state of Virginia shows that an automobile is driven on average 23,500 kilometers per year with a standard deviation of 3900 kilometers.
Assume the distribution of measurements to be approximately normal.
a) Construct a 99% confidence interval for the average number of kilometers an automobile is driven annually in Virginia.
b) What can we assert with 99% confidence about the possible size of our error if we estimate the average number of kilometers driven by car owners in Virginia to be 23,500 kilometers per year?

The number of rescue calls received by a rescue squad in a city follows a Poisson distribution with 2.83 per day. The squad can handle at most four calls a day.
a. What is the probability that the squad will be able to handle all the calls on a particular day?
b. The squad wants to have at least 95% confidence of being able to handle all the calls received in a day. At least how many calls a day should the squad be prepared for?
c. Assuming that the squad can handle at most four calls a day, what is the largest value of that would yield 95% confidence that the squad can handle all calls?

Confidence interval and standard deviation
I'm currently talking an intermediate course in finance where we want to calculate Value-at-Risk for portfolios and bonds. To use this VaR formula I need to know the standard deviation for different confidence intervals. Now my teacher have put up the following standard deviation for different confidence intervals:
C.I90=+1,64S.d
C.I95=+1,96S.d
C.I98=+2,33S.d
C.I99,9=+3,09S.d
When I watched an old exam for calculating VaR, the C.I was 99% and the student wrote that the S.d was equal to 2,33. How is this possible? (P:s the student got an A on this exam).
