Expert Answer

Step 1

Note:

Hey, since there are multiple sub-parts question posted, we will answer first three sub-parts. If you want any specific sub-part question to be answered then please submit that sub-part question only or specify the sub-part question number in your message.

Step 2

a. Computation of 95% confidence interval for the population mean for n=60, x-bar=32:

Here, x-bar=32; standard deviation is σ=20; and n=60.

Step-by-step procedure to find the 95% confidence interval for the population mean using ti-84 calculator:

  • Enter STAT > TESTS > 7: Z Interval…
  • Choose Inpt:Stats.
  • Enter σ=20, x-bar:32, n:60, and C-Level:.95.
  • Click on Calculate.

Thus, the output obtained as (26.939, 37.061).

Therefore, the 95% confidence interval for µ for n=60, x-bar=32 is (26.939, 37.061).

Step 3

b. Computation of 95% confidence interval for the population mean for n=200, x-bar=119:

Here, x-bar=119; standard deviation is σ=20; and n=200.

Step-by-step procedure to find the 95% confidence interval for the population mean using ti-84 calculator:

  • Enter STAT > TESTS > 7: Z Interval…
  • Choose Inpt:Stats.
  • Enter σ=20, x-bar:119, n:200, and C...
