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 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.
min<μ<min ​(Round to one decimal place as​ needed.)
What does the result suggest about the mean wake time of 101.0 min before the​ treatment? Does the drug appear to be​ effective?
The confidence interval ▼ does not include| includes the mean wake time of 101.0 min before the​ treatment, so the means before and after the treatment ▼ could be the same |are different. This result suggests that the drug treatment ▼ does not have | has a significant effect.
