11) Using the "Ford Mustang Data Set" to represent a random sample, determine a 95% TCO C
confidence interval for the mean price of Ford Mustangs. 10 points

12) Using the "Ford Mustang Data Set" to represent a random sample, determine a 90% TCO C
confidence interval for the mean value of odometer mileage.(MILES) 10 points
13) The Internal Revenue Service has stated that historically 85% of federal tax returns TCO B
filed are free of arithmetic errors. A random sample of 25 returns is selected and
checked carefully for arithmetic errors. Assuming independence, find the probability that:
hint: Binomial problem 20 points

a. all 25 returns are free of arithmetic errors.
b. at most 23 returns are free of arithmetic errors.
c. more than 17 are free of arithmetic errors.

14) A new brand of laptop battery is produced by ZELCON. The company claims that the TCO B
battery will last for an extended period of time before a recharge is necessary. A sample
of 49 batteries is tested for the length of usage time to recharge. The sample results are
as follows: 20 points

Sample Size = 49
Sample Mean = 6.4 hrs.
Sample Standard Deviation = 1.3 hrs.

a. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the average length of usage time to recharge. TCO C
b. Interpret this interval.
c. How large a sample size will need to be selected if we wish to have a 95% confidence
interval with a margin for error of .25 hours?
16. Bill Smith is the Worthington Township manager. When citizens request a traffic light, the
staff assesses the traffic flow at the requested intersection. Township policy requires the installation of
a traffic light when an intersection averages more than 150 vehicles per hour. A random sample of 50
vehicle counts is done. The results are as follows: 40 points

Sample Size = 50
Sample Mean = 159.3 vehicles/hr.
Sample Standard Deviation = 27.5 vehicles/hr.

Does the sample data provide evidence to conclude that the installation of the traffic light is warranted
(using α= .10)? Use the hypothesis testing procedure outlined below.

a. Formulate the null and alternative hypotheses. TCO D
b. State the level of significance.
c. Find the critical value (or values), and clearly show the rejection and nonrejection regions.
d. Compute the test statistic.
e. Decide whether you can reject Ho and accept Ha or not.
f. Explain and interpret your conclusion in part e. What does this mean?
g. Find the observed p-value for the hypothesis test and interpret this value. What does this mean?
h. Does this sample data provide evidence (with α = 0.10), that the installation of the traffic light
is warranted?
