Q4

A hospital is trying to cut down on emergency room wait times. It is interested in the amount of time

patients must wait before being called back to be examined. An investigation committee randomly

surveyed 70 patients. The sample mean was 1.5 hours with a sample standard deviation of 0.5 hours.

Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean time spent waiting.

Ans: CI: (1.3808 and 1.6192) Show your workings

Q5

One hundred eight Americans were surveyed to determine the number of hours they spend watching

television each month. It was revealed that they watched an average of 151 hours each month with a

standard deviation of 32 hours. Assume that the underlying population distribution is normal.

Find the 99% confidence interval for the population mean hours spent watching television per month.

Ans; CI: (142.92 and 159.08) Show your workings

Q6

The systolic blood pressure (given in millimeters) of males has an approximately normal distribution with

mean μ = 125 and standard deviation σ = 14. Systolic blood pressure for males follows a normal

distribution. Calculate the z-scores for the male systolic blood pressures 100 and 150 millimeters.

Ans: Z = -1.8 and 1.8

Q7

A baker is deciding how many batches of muffins to make to sell in his bakery. He wants to make enough to

sell everyone and no less. Through observation, the baker has established a probability distribution.

x P(x)

1 0.15

2 0.35

3 0.40

4 0.10

What is the probability the baker will sell more than one batch? P (x > 1)

Ans: 0.85 (Show your workings)

Q8

A candy bar manufacturer is interested in trying to estimate how sales are influenced by the price of their

product. To do this, the company randomly chooses 6 small cities and offers the candy bar at different prices.

Using candy bar sales as the dependent variable, the company will conduct a simple linear regression on the

data below:

City Price ($) Sales

River City 1.30 100

Hudson 1.60 90

Ellsworth 1.80 90

Prescott 2.00 40

Rock Elm 2.40 38

Stillwater 2.90 32

what is the coefficient of correlation for these data? Ans= -0.8854 (Show detailed workings)

(b) Find the variance of the binomial distribution (Ans=1.2) (Show your solution)

Q10

A manufacturer of power tools claims that the mean amount of time required to assemble their top-of-the-line

table saw is 80 minutes with a standard deviation of 40 minutes. Suppose a random sample of 64 purchasers of

this table saw is taken. The probability that the sample mean will be greater than 88 minutes is ________.
