Refer to Exercise 9.
a. Find a 90% upper confidence bound for the mean weight.
b. Someone says that the mean weight is less than 1.585 g. With what level of confidence can this statement be made?
Step 1 of 3
Step1 of 3:
Let us consider a random variable X it represents the weight of the penny nail. Here random variable X follows normal distribution with mean standard deviation and
n = 80.
The probability density function of normal distribution is given by
x = random variable
= mean of X
= variance of X
= standard deviation os X
= mathematical constant and its value is 3.14
Here our goal is:
a). We need to find a 90% upper confidence bound for the mean weight.
b). We need to find level of confidence can this statement be made by taking the mean weight is less than 1.585 g.
Step2 of 3:
Here we have to find 90% CI, let us take .
Z-scores(are to the right) is given by
is obtained from standard normal table(area under normal curve). In standard normal table we have...
