    1. The success rate of a surgical procedure is 70 per 100 cases examined in a sample. Find a 90 percent confidence interval for the total number of successes per 1,000 cases.

    2. Ten items of 100 are defective. Develop a 95 percent confidence interval for the population proportion of defectives.

    3. Assuming a normal population, use the data: 15, 19, 12, 14, 23 and 13 to test H0: mean=18 versus HA: mean = (different) 18 at alpha=.05.
