Young’s modulus is a quantitative measure of stiffness of an elastic material. Suppose that for aluminum alloy sheets of a particular type, its mean value and standard deviation are 70 GPa and 1.6 GPa, respectively (values given in the article “Influence of Material Properties Variability on Springback and Thinning in Sheet Stamping Processes: A Stochastic Analysis” (Intl. J. of Advanced Manuf. Tech., 2010: 117–134)). If X¯ is the sample mean Young’s modulus for a random sample of n = 16 sheets, where is the sampling distribution of X¯ centered, and what is the standard deviation of the X¯ distribution?

Show from first principles, i.e., by using the definition of linear independence,

that if μ = x + iy, y ̸= 0 is an eigenvalue of a real matrix

A with associated eigenvector v = u + iw, then the two real solutions

Y(t) = eat(u cos bt − wsin bt)

and

Z(t) = eat(u sin bt + wcos bt)

are linearly independent solutions of ˙X = AX.

The U.S. Census Bureau compiles census data on educational attainment of Americans. From the document Current Population Reports, we obtained the 2000 distribution of educational attainment for U.S. adults 25 years old and older. Here is that distribution.

[Table]

A random sample of 500 U.S. adults (25 years old and older) taken this year gave the following frequency distribution.

[Table]

Decide, at the 5% significance level, whether this year’s distribution of educational attainment differs from the 2000 distribution.

A 95% CI is a numerical interval within which we are 95% confident that the true mean μ$\mu $ lies. | ||

A 95% CI is a numerical interval within which we are 95% confident that the sample mean x¯¯¯$\overline{x}$ lies. | ||

The true mean μ$\mu $ is always inside the corresponding confidence interval. | ||

For a sample size n=29$n=29$, the number of degrees of freedom is n=30$n=30$. | ||

If we repeat an experiment 100 times (with 100 different samples) and construct a 95% CI each time, then approximately 5 of those 100 CIs would not$not$ contain the true mean 𝜇. |
