CUNY Bronx Community College Standard Deviation Mathematics Questions


i don’t need the process. i just need the answers.I questionary is in a weBWork system.if there is any wrong answer it wont accept it and the system would let me know which one is wrong, then i will let you know which one isnt correct.

A random sample of 20 U.S. weddings yielded the following data on wedding costs in dollars:
8944, 23989, 18464, 28681, 30364, 18838, 10644, 32438, 32115, 5510,
15200, 11732, 31979, 29310, 11035, 12701, 27406, 20589, 19212, 5442
a) Use the data to obtain a point estimate for the population mean wedding cost,
weddings. Note: The sum of the data is 394593.
b) Is your point estimate in part (a) likely equal to
4) A random sample of

(d) In general, we can say that for the same confidence level, increasing the sample size the margin of
error (width) of the confidence interval. (Enter: ”DECREASES”, ”DOES NOT CHANGE” or
”INCREASES”, without the quotes.)
6) For 30 randomly selected Rolling Stones concerts, the mean gross earnings is 2.45 million dollars.
Assuming a population standard deviation gross earnings of 0.46 million dollars, obtain a 99% confidence
interval for the mean gross earnings of all Rolling Stones concerts (in millions).
Confidence interval: ( , ).
b) Which of the following is the correct interpretation for your answer in part (a)?
A. We can be 99% confident that the mean gross earnings for this sample of 30 Rolling Stones concerts lies
in the interval
B. There is a 99% chance that the mean gross earnings of all Rolling Stones concerts lies in the interval
C. We can be 99% confident that the mean gross earnings of all Rolling Stones concerts lies in the interval
D. None of the above
7) A random sample of
observations produced a mean of

Note: Round your answers to 4 decimal places.
8) A study of the career paths of hotel general managers sent questionnaires to an simple random sample
of 200 hotels belonging to major U.S. hotel chains. There were 92 responses. The average time these 92
general managers had spent with their current company was 10.82 years. (Take it as known that the
standard deviation of time with the company for all general managers is 3 years.)
Find the margin of error for an 85% confidence interval to estimate the mean time a general manager had
spent with their current company. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.
Answer: years
9) Starting salaries of 110 college graduates who have taken a statistics course have a mean of $44,260.
Suppose the distribution of this population is approximately normal and has a standard deviation of
Using an 95% confidence level, find both of the following:
(NOTE: Do not use commas nor dollar signs in your answers.)
(a) The margin of error E:
(b) The confidence interval for the mean

the particular phone he wants. The sample of prices had a mean of $389.19 and a standard deviation of

(b) Find the margin of error for a 99% confidence interval. hour(s).
Note: Round off your answer to 2 decimal places.
14) A study is conducted to determine if a newly designed text book is more helpful to learning the
material than the old edition. The mean score on the final exam for a course using the old edition is 75.
Ten randomly selected people who used the new text take the final exam. Their scores are shown in the
table below.
Person A B C D E F G H I J
Test Score 71 86 95 80 90 96 69 88 77 73
