Based on a simple random sample of 1300 college students, it is found that 299 students own a car. We wish to construct a \(\displaystyle{90}\%\) confidence interval to estimate the proportions ? of all college students who own a car.
A) Read carefully the text and provide each of the following:
The sample size \(\displaystyle?=\)
from the sample, the number of college students who own a car is \(\displaystyle?=\)
the confidence level is \(\displaystyle{C}{L}=\) \(\displaystyle\%\).
B) Find the sample proportion \(\displaystyle\hat{{?}}=\)
and \(\displaystyle\hat{{?}}={1}−\hat{{?}}=\)

Step 1
(A)
The sample size is, \(\displaystyle{n}={1300}\)
The number of college students who own a car is,
\(\displaystyle{x}={299}\)
The confidence level is, \(\displaystyle{C}{L}={90}\%\)
Step 2
(B)
The value of sample proportion is,
\(\displaystyle\hat{{{p}}}={\frac{{{x}}}{{{n}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{{299}}}{{{1300}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={0.23}\)
The value of \(\displaystyle\hat{{{1}}}\) is,
\(\displaystyle\hat{{{q}}}={1}-\hat{{{p}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={1}-{0.23}\)
\(\displaystyle={0.77}\)

When σ is unknown and the sample size is \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), there are tow methods for computing confidence intervals for μμ. Method 1: Use the Student's t distribution with d.f. = n - 1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method. Method 2: When \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σσ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σσ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student's t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n = 31, with sample mean x¯=45.2 and sample standard deviation s = 5.3. (c) Compare intervals for the two methods. Would you say that confidence intervals using a Student's t distribution are more conservative in the sense that they tend to be longer than intervals based on the standard normal distribution?

If you have a 99% confidence interval for \(\mu;\mu\); based on a simple random sample, is it correct to say that in the long run, if you computed many, many confidence intervals using the prescribed method, about 99% of such intervals would contain \(\mu\);? Explain.

A simple random sample is drawn from a population that is known to be normally distributed. The sample variance, s2, is determined to be 12.6
A. Construct a \(\displaystyle{90}\%\) confidence interval for \(\displaystyle\sigma\) if the sample size, n, is 20. (Hint: use the result obtained from part (a)) 7.94 (LB) & 23.66 (UB))
B. Construct a \(\displaystyle{90}\%\) confidence interval for \(\displaystyle\sigma\) if the sample size, n, is 30. (Hint: use the result obtained from part (b)) 8.59 (LB) & 20.63 (UB)
