Question 3 A sample was taken of computation errors on an exam: 4, 7, 3, 8, 4, 4, 6, 1, 5, 2, 4, 8, 5, 4, 5. What value should be used for the population standard deviation? (Points : 1)
0.51
1.99

Question 5.5. Confidence interval estimates of a population parameter ________. (Points : 1)
provide a range of values within which the true value of the parameter is believed to be
specify a value that accurately predicts the population parameter
eliminates the effect of sampling error
are used solely to estimate the value of population variance


Question 6.6. All of the following are reasons why random sampling is important for statistical applications except ________. (Points : 1)
the outcomes are more readily understood and therefore really usable
solving using mathematics alone may be very difficult if not impossible
the outcome variables are complicated functions of several input random variables
sampling experiments can be used to better understand important statistics theories

Question 8.8. A quality assurance technician has checked fifteen 2-liter bottles of a soft drink finding a 99% confidence interval of 1950 ml to 2025 ml for the mean fill volume. Which of the following is true? (Points : 1)
The sample indicates that the population mean lies between 1950 and 2025 ml.
There is a 99% likelihood that the bottles are being under-filled so the bottling process should be stopped.
The technician should recalculate at a 95% confidence interval.
The sample indicates that the sample mean lies closer to 2 liters than not.


Question 9.9. Regarding the standard error of the mean, ________. (Points : 1)
as the sample size increases, the standard error increases
as the sample size decreases, the standard error decreases
as the sample size increases, the standard error decreases
it is defined as one-half of the population standard deviation


Question 10.10. A point estimate is used ________. (Points : 1)
because it's easier to use all the values in the data set than a single value
to estimate the value of a population estimate
when the population parameter is known
only when the population proportion is not known

14.4
0.4


Question 13.13. The standard error of the mean is ________. (Points : 1)

the variance of the sampling distribution of the mean
the standard deviation of the sampling distribution of the mean
the range of the sampling distribution of the mean
the mean of the sampling distribution of the standard deviations

multiplying the standard error by zα/2
multiplying the population standard deviation and the sample size
dividing the population standard deviation by the sample

multiplying the level of confidence and the standard error

 

18. A sample mean of 4.56 ounces was just measured from a population of which the population mean is not known. What value should be used for the population mean? (Points : 1)
2.125 ounces
none, since the population mean cannot be estimated
4.56 ounces
the average of all the sample means
