Calculate and interpret the following confidence intervals

1) 95% CI for the average daily exercise time of males
2) 99% CI for the average daily exercise time of females

calculate and interpret the following confidence intervals
1) 95% CI for the average daily exercise time of males
With 95% confidence level, α=0.05, and the corresponding critical value, or z-score isz_(α/2)=1.96
So (X ̅-1.96 s/√15,X ̅+1.96 s/√15)= (40.87-1.96 ...

Confidence Intervals and Hypothesis Test.

The mean and standard deviation of the sample of 65 customer satisfaction ratings are x-bar = 42.95 and s = 2.6424. If we let "mu" denote the mean of all possible customer satisfaction ratings:

a) Calculate 95 and 99 percent confidence intervals for "mu".
b) Using the 95 percent confidence interval, can we be 95% confident that "mu" is greater than 42? Explain>

Suppose we wish to test H0: p = .8 versus Ha: p > .8 and that a random sample of n = 400 gives a
sample proportion = .86.
a Test H0 versus Ha at the .05 level of significance by using a rejection point. What do you conclude?

b Find the p-value for this test.

c Use the p-value to test H0 versus Ha by setting alpha equal to .10, .05, .01, and .001. What do you
conclude at each value of alpha?
