In a sample of 7 cars each car was tested for nitrogenoxide emissions (in grams per mile) and the following results are obtained
0.18, 0.16, 0.08, 0.06,0.17,0.12,0.15 assuming that this sample is representative of the cars in use. cosntruct a 98% confidence interval estimate of the mean amount of nitrogen=oxide emissions for all cars. if the epa requires that nitrogen oxide emissions can be less than 0.165g.mi we can safely conclude that requirement is being met
A)what is the confidence interval estimate of the mean amount of nitrogenoxide emissions for all cars
___g/mi<u<___g/mi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The first step is to calculate the sample mean by adding the seven values and dividing by 7: \[\bar{x}=\frac{0.18+0.16+0.08+0.06+0.17+0.12+0.15}{7}=\frac{0.92}{7}=0.13143\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@kropot72, then how do you get the __g/mi <u< __g/mi ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The next step is to calculate the sample standard deviation, s.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You can use a calculator with statistical functions to calculate the sample standard deviation, s.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simplify the result. σ=0.046344719225 The standard deviation should be rounded to one more decimal place than the original data. If the original data were mixed, round to one decimal place more than the least precise. 0.046

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The final calculation uses the following formula: \[\bar{x}2.576\frac{s}{\sqrt{n}}<\mu<\bar{x}+2.576\frac{s}{\sqrt{n}}\] Substituting values gives the confidence interval for the population mean as follows: \[0.131432.576\frac{0.046}{\sqrt{7}}<\mu<0.13143+2.576\frac{0.046}{\sqrt{7}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did you get the 2.576?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The value 2.576 is determined by an inverse normal technique. However it can be found in tables for use in calculating confidence intervals.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know i am going to sound stupid but how do i figure _g/mi<u<_g/mi was that the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2When you have calculated the two values for the confidence interval, just put the lower value where the first underscore is and the higher value where the right hand underscore is.
