Overproduction of uric acid in the body can be an indication of cell breakdown. This may be an advance indication of illness such as gout, leukemia, or lymphoma. Over a period of months, an adult male patient has taken eight blood tests for uric acid. The mean concentration was x¯=5.35mg/dl. The distribution of uric acid in healthy adult males can be assumed to be normal with σ=1.85mg/dlσ=1.85mg/dl. What conditions are necessary for your calculations?

Necessary assumptions for the confidence interval of the mean: The population distribution of x is approximately normal (becatise the sample size of 8 is small and thus the central limit theorem camnot: be applied).
Population standard deviation o is known

The yield strength of CP titanium welds was measured for welds cooled at rates of \(10^{\circ}C/s,15^{\circ}C/s\ \text{and}\ 28^{\circ}C/s\). The results are presented in the following table. (Based on the article “Advances in Oxygen Equivalence Equations for Predicting the Properties of Titanium Welds,” D. Harwig, W. Ittiwattana, and H. Castner, The Welding Journal, 2001:126s-136s.)

\(\begin{array}{} \hline \text{Cooling Rate}&\text{Yield Strenghts}\\ \hline 10&71.00&75.00&79.67&81.00&75.50&72.50&73.50&78.50\\ 15&63.00&68.00&73.00&76.00&79.67&81.00\\ 28&68.65&73.70&78.40&84.40&91.20&87.15&77.20&80.70&84.85&88\\ \hline \end{array}\)
a. Construct an ANOVA table. You may give a range for the P-value. b. Can you conclude that the yield strength of CP titanium welds varies with the cooling rate?

The following advanced exercise use a generalized ratio test to determine convergence of some series that arise in particular applications, including the ratio and root test, are not powerful enough to determine their convergence. The test states that if $ limna2nan<1/2 then an converges, while if limna2n+1an>1/2 then an  diverges. Let an=nlnn(lnn)n. Show that a2nan0 as n

Maurice and Lester are twins who have just graduated from college. They have both been offered jobs where their take-home pay would be $2500 per month. Their parents have given Maurice and Lester two options for a graduation gift. Option 1: If they choose to pursue a graduate degree, their parents will give each of them a gift of $35,000. However, they must pay for their tuition and living expenses out of the gift. Option 2: If they choose to go directly into the workforce, their parents will give each of them a gift of $5000. Maurice decides to go to graduate school for 2 years. He locks in a tuition rate by paying $11,500 for the 2 years in advance, and he figures that his monthly expenses will be $1000. Lester decides to go straight into the workforce. Lester finds that after paying his rent, utilities, and other living expenses, he will be able to save $200 per month. Their parents deposit the appropriate amount of money in a money market account for each twin. The money market accounts are currently paying a nominal interest rate of 3 percent, compounded monthly. Lester works during the time that Maurice attends graduate school. Each month, Lester saves $200 and deposits this amount into the $5000 money market account that his parents set up for him when he graduated. If Lester's initial balance is u0=5000,un is the current month's balance, and un−1 is last month's balance, write an expression for un in terms of un−1.
