1. In considering the production of a new car accessory, the Michigan Manufacturer Company wants to do a marketing study to determine the proportion of cars with cellular phones. How many cars must be sampled to have 92% confidence that the sample proportion is in error by no more than 0.03? The answer is 851 need help setting up and solving to get this.

2. the data set show 17 weights (in grams) of red M & M's. For the sample, the mean is 0.9043g and the standard deviation is 0.0414g. Construct a 90% confidence interval estimate of the standard deviation of the weights of all red M & M's. answer is 0.0323 < o < 0.0587.

In a random sample of 225 students at a university, 180 stated that they were nonsmokers. Based on this sample, compute a 95% confidenceintervalfor the proportion of all students at the university who are nonsmokers.
Carry your intermediate computations to at least three decimal places. Round your answers to two decimal pl

Of 43 bank customers depositing a check, 18 received some cash back. (a) Construct a 90% confidenceintervalfor the proportion of all depositors who ask for cash back. (b) Check the normality assumption.

We will be constructing confidenceintervals for the proportion of each color as well as the mean number of candies per bag. Use the methods of 6.3 for the proportions and 6.1 for the mean.
If calculating by hand, be sure to keep at least 4-6 decimal places for the sample proportions to eliminate large rounding errors.

A study was carried out to understand the amount of time put in by the students in three management institutes. One hundred students from different institutions were surveyed. Information regarding the hours put in by the students per week is summarized in the following contingency table:
