PROBLEM 10E

A leakage test was conducted to determine the effectiveness of a seal designed to keep the inside of a plug airtight. An air needle was inserted into the plug, and the plug and needle were placed under water. The pressure was then increased until leakage was observed. Let X equal the pressure in pounds per square inch. Assume that the distribution of X is N(μ, σ2). The following n = 10 observations of X were obtained:

Use the observations to

(a) Find a point estimate of μ.

(b) Find a point estimate of σ.

(c) Find a 95% one-sided confidence interval for μ that provides an upper bound for μ.
