8.50 Refer to Exercise 8.25, vhere we reported on the results of Harris polls conducted in 1983 and 1992. The 1992 results summarized the responses of n ? 1251 individuals, whereas we assumed that the results for the 1983 poll involved n = 1250 respondents. The data are summarized in the accompanying table for your convenience.

Americans have become increasingly concerned about the rising cost of Medicare. In 1990, the average annual Medicare spending per enrollee was $3267; in 2003, the average annual Medicare spending per enrollee was $6883 (Money, Fall 2003). Suppose you hired a consulting firm to take a sample of fifty 2003 Medicare enrollees to fu

The average annual cost of automobile insurance is $687 (National Association of Insurance Commissioners, January 2003). Use this value as the population mean and assume that the population standard deviation is σ = $230. Consider a sample of 45 automobile insurance policies. a. Show the sampling distribution of x where

Fifty percent of Americans believed the country was in a recession, even though technically had not shown two straight quarters of negative growth (Business Week, July 30, 2001). For a sample of 20 Americans, make the following calculations. a. Determine the probability that exactly 12 people believed the country was in a re

3. A production line manufactures 1000 ohms resistors that must satisfy a 10% tolerance. a. If a resistance is adequately described by a Gaussian random variable for which mean = 1000; and standard deviation = 40;, what fraction of the resistance expected to be rejected? b. If a machine is not properly adjusted, the produc

In an article about investment growth, Money magazine reported that drug stocks show powerful long-term trends and offer investors unparalleled potential for strong and steady gains.
