Question;Part 1 of 3 -Question 1 of 20 1.0 PointsAccepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where "a" and "b" need to have explicitly stated values.For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.Assume 50 random samples of the same sample size are taken from a population, and a 90% confidence interval is constructed from each sample. How many of the intervals would you expect to contain the true population mean?Answer: Round your answer to a whole number value as necessary. For example, 37 would be a legitimate entry.Question 2 of 20 1.0 PointsAccepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation).

The firm expects each professional employee to spend at least 40 hours per week on work. In an effort to understand this problem better, management would like to estimate the standard deviation of the number of hours their employees spend on work-related activities in a typical week. Rather than reviewing the records of all the firm?s full-time employees, the management randomly selected a sample of size 51 from the available frame. The sample mean and sample standard deviations were 48.5 and 7.5 hours, respectively.Construct a 99% confidence interval for the standard deviation of the number of hours this firm?s employees spend on work-related activities in a typical week.Place your LOWER limit, in hours, rounded to 1 decimal place, in the first blank. For example, 6.7 would be a legitimate entry.Place your UPPER limit, in hours, rounded to 1 decimal place, in the second blank. For example, 12.3 would be a legitimate entry.Question 3 of 20 1.0 PointsAccepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation).

If 30 such cars are tested, what is the probability the average mpg achieved by these 30 cars will be greater than 28?Answer: Round your answer to 4 decimal places as necessary. For example, 0.1357 would be a legitimate entry.Question 4 of 20 1.0 PointsAccepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation).
