16. A state education agency designs and administers high school proficiency exams. Historically, time to complete the exam was an average of 120 minutes. Recently the format of the exam changed and the claim has been made that the time to complete the exam has changed. A sample of 50 new exam times yielded an average time of 118 minutes. The standard deviation is assumed to be 5 minutes. Calculate a 99% confidence interval. (Ch 8)

17. The changing ecology of the swamps in Louisiana has been the subject of much environmental research. One water-quality parameter of concern is the total phosphorous level. Suppose that the EPA makes 15 measurements in one area of the swamp, yielding a mean level of total phosphorus of 12.3 parts per billion (ppb) and a standard deviation of 5.4 ppb. The EPA wants to test whether the data support the conclusion that the mean level is less than 15 ppb. Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses. (Ch 9)

19. The Ohio Department of Agriculture tested 203 fuel samples across the state in 1999 for accuracy of the reported octane level. For premium grade, 14 out of 105 samples failed (they didn’t meet ASTM specification and the FTC Octane posting rule). How many samples would be needed to create a 99% confidence interval that is within 0.02 of the true proportion of premium grade fuel-quality failures?(Ch8)

23. If a population distribution is known to be normal, then it follows that: (Ch7) (Points : 10)
The sample Mean must equal the population mean
The sample Mean is skewed for small samples but becomes more and more normal as sample size increases
The sample Standard Deviation must equal the population standard deviation

The Sample Proportion must equal the population Proportion
None of the above

26. A major airline company is concerned that its proportion of late arrivals has substantially increased in the past month. Historical data shows that on the average 18% of the company airplanes have arrived late. In a random sample of 1,240 airplanes, 310 airplanes have arrived late. If we are conducting a hypothesis test of a single proportion to determine if the proportion of late arrivals has increased: What is the value of the calculated test statistic? (Cch 9)

28. In a manufacturing process, we are interested in measuring the average length of a certain type of bolt. Based on a preliminary sample of 100 bolts, the sample standard deviation is .3 inches. How many bolts should be sampled in order to make us 90% confident that the sample mean bolt length is within .02 inches of the true mean bolt length? (Ch8) (Points : 10)

30. A manufacturer of a chemical used in glue, attempting to control the amount of a hazardous chemical its workers are exposed to, has given instructions to halt production if the mean amount in the air exceeds 3.0ppm. A random sample of 50 air specimens produced the following statistics: sample mean=3.1 ppm , sample standard deviation=0.5 ppm. Calculate the appropriate test statistic to test the hypotheses. (Ch 9)
