(a)

Is there evidence to support the assumption that the tar content is normally
distributed?

(b)

Find a 99% CI on the mean tar content

(c)

Find a 99% prediction interval on the tar content for the next observation that will
be taken on this particular type of tobacco

(d)

Find an interval that will contain 99% of the values of the tar content with 95%
confidence

(e)

Explain the difference in the three intervals computed in parts (b), (c) and (d)

Problem # 2
A CI is desired for the true average stray-load loss (watts) for a certain type of
induction motor when the line current is held at 10 amps for a speed of 1500 rpm.
Assume that stray-load loss is normally distributed with = 3.0.
a.
b.
c.
d.
e.

Compute a 95% CI for when n = 25 and x = 60.


Compute a 95% CI for when n = 100 and x = 60.
Compute a 99% CI for when n = 100 and x = 60.
Compute an 82% CI for when n = 100 and x = 60.
How large must n be if the width of the 99% interval for is to be 1.0?

Problem # 3
Determine the following:
a.
b.
c.
d.

The 90th percentile of the chi-squared distribution with = 12.


The 10th percentile of the chi-squared distribution with = 12.
P (10.98 2 36.78) where 2 is a chi-squared rv with = 22.
P ( 2 < 14.611 or 2 > 37.652) where 2 is a chi-squared rv with = 25
