Use the information to construct 90% and 99% confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. A group of researchers estimates the mean length of time (in minutes) the average U.S. adult spends watching television using digital video recorders (DVRs) and other forms of time-shifted television each day. To do so, the group takes a random sample of 30 U.S. adults and obtains the times (in minutes) below. 29 12 23 24 33 24 28 31 18 27 27 32 17 13 17 12 21 32 26 16 28 28 21 24 29 13 20 13 21 27 From past studies, the research council assumes that σσ is 6.5 minutes.

The two intervals (114.4, 115.6) and (114.1, 115.9) are confidence intervals (computed using the same sample data) for \(\mu=\) true average resonance frequency (in hertz) for all tennis rackets of a certain type.
a. What is the value of the sample mean resonance frequency?
b. The confidence level for one of these intervals is 90%90%and for the other it is 99%99%. Which is which, and how can you tell?

You are given the sample mean and the population standard deviation. Use this information to construct 90% and 95% confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. From a random sample of 36 business days from February 24, 2016, through February 24, 2017, the mean closing price of Apple stock was $116.16. Assume the population standard deviation is $10.27.

Is there a relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests? Let e be the level of confidence used to construct a confidence interval from sample data. Let \(\alpha\) be the level of significance for a two-tailed hypothesis test. The following statement applies to hypothesis tests of the mean. (A corresponding relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests also is valid for other parameters such as p, \(mu_{1}-\mu_{2}\), or \(p_{1}-p_{2}\), which we will study in Section 9.3, 10.2, and 10.3.) Whenever the value of k given in the null hypothesis falls outside the \(\displaystyle{c}={1}-\alpha\) confidence interval for the parameter, we reject \(H_{0}\). For example, consider a two-tailed hypothesis test with \(\alpha =0.01\ \text{and}\ H_{0}:\mu =20 H_{1}:\mu 20\) sample mean \(\displaystyle{x}¯={22}\) from a population with standard deviation \(\displaystyle\sigma={4}\).
(a) What is the value of c\(\displaystyle{c}={1}-\alpha\);. Using the methods, construct a \(\displaystyle{c}={1}-\alpha\); confidence interval for μ from the sample data. What is the value of \(\mu\); given in the null hypothesis (i.e., what is k)? Is this value in the confidence interval? Do we reject or fail to reject \(H_0\) based on this information?
(b) using methods, find the P-value for the hypothesis test. Do we reject or fail to reject \(H_0\)? Compare your result to that of part (a).

Assume the sample is from a normally distributed population and construct the indicated confidence intervals for (a) the population variance \(\displaystyle\sigma^{{{2}}}\) and (b) the population standard deviation \(\displaystyle\sigma\). Interpret the results. The maximum wind speeds (in knots) of 13 randomly selected hurricanes that have hit the U.S. mainland are listed. Use a 95% level of confidence. \(\begin{matrix} 70 & 85 & 70 & 75 & 100 & 100 & 110 & 105 & 130 & 75 & 85 & 75 & 70 \end{matrix}\)
