5 questions. 1. Finding the confidence interval at either 90%, 95% or 99% for the mean given the mean and standard deviation of a sample. The population variance is not given and so the t test has to be used. Various scenarios are included. 2. Finding the confidence interval at either 90%, 95% or 99% for the mean given the mean of a sample. The population variance is given and so the z values are used. Various scenarios are included. 3. Provided with information on a sample with sample mean and standard deviation, but no information on the population variance, use the t test to either accept or reject a given null hypothesis. 4. Provided with information on a sample with sample mean and known population variance, use the z test to either accept or reject a given null hypothesis. 5. Given two sets of data, sample mean and sample standard deviation, on performance on the same task, make a decision as to whether or not the mean times differ. Population variance not given, so the t test has to be used in conjunction with the pooled sample standard deviation. Link to use of t tables and p-values in Show steps.
