    1. Find the point estimate of the population mean and the margin of error for a 90% confidence interval for the following drive times (in minutes) for commuters to a college.




35        40        47        22        17        19        36        44        65       




55        22        23        16        46        44        38        29        22       




37        16        8          15        27        41        45        17        11




            45        63        17        28        19        64        55        53        50




            Answer:     X  =   S = 1231  = 34.1 Sample Mean


                                        n     36












    1. Use the results from the above data (#1) and determine the minimum survey size that is necessary to be 95% confident that the sample mean drive time is within 10 minutes of the actual mean commuting time.




    1. In a random sample of 35 tractors, the annual cost of maintenance was $4,425 and the standard deviation was $775. Construct a 90% confidence interval for this. Assume the annual maintenance costs are normally distributed.




Answer:   90% = mean ± 1.645 SEm




SEm = SD/√n




I used the table in the back of my statistics text labeled “areas under normal distribution” to find the proportion/probability (±5%) to get Z = 1.645. I assume that you have a similar table available.












    1. The following data represents the number of points scored by players on a high school basketball team this season.

Player 3           145      Player 8           54


Player 4           111      Player 9           221


Player 5           97        Player 10         99


      1. Find the sample mean and the sample standard deviation.


Answer:  Sample Mean  1071 = 107.1  Sample Standard Deviation S = 3.16




      1. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the population mean and interpret the results. Assume the population of the data set is normally distributed.






    1. For the following statements, state the null and alternative hypotheses and identify which represents the claim. Determine when a type I or type II error occurs for a hypothesis test of the claim. Determine whether the hypothesis test is left-tailed, right-tailed, or two-tailed, and explain your reasoning. Explain how you should interpret a decision that rejects the null hypothesis. Explain how you would interpret a decision that fails to reject the null hypothesis.


      1. It is reported that the number of residents in Wisconsin who support plans to recall the governor is 48%.


      1. An Amish bakery store states that the average shelf life of their fresh baked goods is seven days.

    1. An advertising firm claims that the average expenditure for advertising for their customers is at least $12,500 per year. You want to test this claim, so you randomly select 10 of their customers. The results are listed below. At a sig. level of .01 can you reject this claim? Explain.




13,445             11,220             10,157             13,217             9,990


                        12,125             10,116             14,350             13,590             12,100




    1. Find the critical value(s) for the indicated test for a population variance, sample size, and sig. level.


      1. Right-tailed test – Sample Size (25), Significance (.05)


      1. Two-tailed test – Sample Size (11), Significance (.01)


      1. Two-tailed test – Sample size (66), Significance (.10)


      1. Left-tailed test – Sample Size (18), Significance (.05)


    1. The employees in a grocery store are handing out samples of a certain brand of Pizza. This is the pizza company’s way of determining whether people like the brand of pizza and would prefer it over other brands. Do you think this type of sampling is representative of the population?

The average score for 10 randomly selected boys is 87 with a standard deviation of 11. The average score for 10 randomly selected girls is 89 with a standard deviation of 12. State the null and alternate hypotheses. At a sig. of .05 can you reject the teacher’s claim? Assume normal distribution and equal variances. Please use Excel for your calculations. What is your analysis?


13.   Application: Create a small data set based on something you are interested in. You will need to form a null and alternate hypothesis and perform a one-sample test based on the sample. Discuss your analysis based on the output. If you are unsure of ideas for a data set, you can look online or in your text for ideas. However, do not copy word-for-word.
