Recently the management of the store initiated a promotional;campaign according to which each customer receives points based on the total;money spent at the store and these points can be used to buy products at the;store. The management expects that as a result of this campaign, the customers;should be encouraged to spend more money at the store. To check whether this is;true, the manager of the store took a sample of 12 customers who visited the;store.

Suppose that these means were based on random samples of 100;gas stations for 1998 and 120 gas stations for 1997. Also, assume that the;sample standard deviations were $.11 for 1998 and $.10 for 1997.

Three years ago, a poll;conducted by Louis Harris & Associates for Business Week magazine, examined;the perception of American adults of their government. When asked whether the;U.S. government represents the concerns of the American people or those of;special interest groups, 63% of those polled felt that the U.S. government;primarily represents the concerns of special interest groups. Assume that this;percentage was true for the population of all American adults at the time the;poll was conducted. A recent random sample of 1200 American adults found that;61% of them feel that the U.S. government represents the concerns of special interest;groups. Let p be the percentage of all American adults who hold this view;recently. Answer the following questions.;(a) (2 points) What is the point estimate for the p? What is the;margin of error?;(b) (2 points) Construct a 96% con dence interval for p. Is p;included in this interval?;(c) Is the currant proportion of;all U.S. adults who hold this opinion is less than 63%?

A company has two restaurants;in two di erent areas of Kansas City. The company wants to estimate the;percentages of patrons who think that the food and service at each of these;restaurants are excellent. A sample of 200 patrons taken from the restaurant in;area A showed that 118 of them think that the food and service are excellent at;this restaurant. Another sample of 250 patrons taken from the restaurant in;area B showed that 160 of them think that the food and service are excellent at;this restaurant. Let p1 and p2 be the population proportions of patrons to the restaurant in;Area A or B who think the food and service are excellent. Answer the following;questions.;(a) (1 point) What is the point estimate for the p1 p2?;(b) (2 point) Construct a 94% con dence interval for p1 p2.;(c) Is the proportion of patrons at the restaurant in area A who;think that the food and service are excellent is lower than the corresponding;proportion at the restaurant in the area B?
