Central Limit Theorem (Week 2)
January 5, 2011

Week 2 Assignment: Exercises 21, 22, and 34 (Ch. 8) of Statistical Techniques in Business & Economics:

#21 (a-c) a. The difference between the sample mean (bar X) and the population mean.
b. Yes.
c. The sample size is equal to the populations size

#22 (a-d) Reasons for sampling:
a. Time: Surveying and entire population can be time consuming. Sampling a small group can be quick and more efficient.

b. Cost: The cost to conduct a sampling will be more effective.

c. Accuracy: Small groups that are sampled can provide you with similar results in accuracy.

d. Destructive sampling -- for example, if you crash tested the entire population of cars for safety testing, you wouldn't have any left to drive -- so you only test a sample

#34 (a-e)

a. 5656.85

...view middle of the document...

N = 36
sd = 0.03
mean = 3.01  (continued next page) 
3.01 - 1.96*0.03/sqrt(36) to 3.01 + 1.96*0.03/sqrt(36)

3.0002 to 3.0198

#34 n = 50, m = 26, s = 6.2,

SE of the mean = s/sqrt n = 6.2/sqrt 50 = 0.8768, z = 1.96

Margin of error: E = Z * SE = 1.96 * 0.8768 = 1.7186

Lower Limit of the confidence interval = m - E = 24.2814 

Upper Limit of the confidence interval = m + E = 26 + 1.7186 = 27.7186

Therefore, the confidence interval is 24.28 (lower limit) weeks and 27.72 (upper limit) weeks 

28 weeks falls outside the above interval, it is not reasonable to assume that the population mean is 28 weeks.

#46 p = 14/220 = 0.06364, q = 1 - p = 0.9364 
SE = sqrt(pq/n) = sqrt(0.06364 * 0.9364/220) = 0.0164 
99% confidence, z = 2.576 
**99% CI for the proportion of applicants who fail the test is given by
[p - z * SE, p + z * SE] = [0.06364 - 2.576 * 0.0164, 0.06364 + 2.576 * 0.0164]
= [0.0214, 0.106] 
= [2.14%, 10.6%] 
**Since 10% falls within the 99% CI but near the upper limit of 10.6%, it may not be reasonable to conclude that more than 10% are now failing the test. 
(b) p = 14/400 = 0.035, q = 1 - p = 0.965 
SE = sqrt(pq/n) = sqrt(0.035 * 0.965/400) = 0.0092
 For 99% confidence, z = 2.576
 The 99% CI for the proportion of employees who fail the test is given by
 [p - z * SE, p + z * SE] = [0.035 - 2.576 * 0.0092, 0.035 + 2.576 * 0.0092]
 = [0.0113, 0.0587]
 = [1.13%, 5.87%]
 **Since 5% falls within the 99% CI, we may conclude that less than 5 % are now failing
 the test.
