A statistics practitioner took a random sample of 43 observations from a population whose standard deviation is 26 and computed the sample mean to be 108. Note: For each confidence interval, enter your answer in the form (LCL, UCL). You must include the parentheses and the comma between the confidence limits. A. Estimate the population mean with 95% confidence. Confidence Interval = B. Estimate the population mean with 95% confidence, changing the population standard deviation to 58, Confidence Interval = C. Estimate the population mean with 95% confidence, changing the population standard deviation to 8, Confidence Interval =

Step 1

a. It is given that, Sample mean = 108. Population standard deviation, σ=26. The sample size, n is 43. The z-critical value for 95% confidence interval is 1.96. The 95% confidence interval can be calculated as follows: CI=x±z(σn)
=108±1.96(2643)
=108±7.7713
=(100.2287,115.7713) The 95% confidence interval is (100.2287, 115.7713).

Step 2

b. Population standard deviation, σ is 58. The 95% confidence interval can be calculated as follows: CI=x±z(σn)
=108±1.96(5843)
=108±17.3360
=(90.664,125.336) The 95% confidence interval is (90.664,125.336).

Step 3

c. Population standard deviation, σ=8. The 95% confidence interval can be calculated as follows: CI=x±z(σn)
=108±1.96(843)
=108±2.3911
=(105.6089,110.3911) The 95% confidence interval is (105.6089,110.3911).

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?

In a science fair​ project, Emily conducted an experiment in which she tested professional touch therapists to see if they could sense her energy field. She flipped a coin to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, and then she asked the therapists to identify the selected hand by placing their hand just under​ Emily's hand without seeing it and without touching it. Among 358 ​trials, the touch therapists were correct 172 times. Complete parts​ (a) through​ (d).
a) Given that Emily used a coin toss to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, what proportion of correct responses would be expected if the touch therapists made random​ guesses? ​(Type an integer or a decimal. Do not​ round.)
b) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, what is the best point estimate of the​ therapists' success​ rate? ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.)
c) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, construct a 90% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of correct responses made by touch therapists.

Sample mean to population mean
How to use sample mean to know the population mean? Now I have sample mean, sd and population mean. They are 37.28, 25 and 34. Sample size is 25 Here is my thought N<25. Sample mean may not equal to population mean. population mean is 37.28+2525=42 Am i correct?

Sampling Distribution of the Sample Mean
Concerning estimations/intervals:
True or False: if the three conditions Random, Normal, and Independent for using a confidence interval for a population mean are not met, then the sampling distribution of x is unknown.
I'm unsure about the criteria - would you not know the distribution of the sample mean even if these criteria are unfilled? Are there specific conditions for doing so?
