Question: A researcher collected data on systolic blood pressure (SBP) from a sample of hypertensive patients. Sample mean of the measurements was 140.1 mmHg and sample standard deviation was 10.3 mmHg. Only ONE of the intervals presented below can be a 95% confidence interval for the unknown mean SBP of the population. Please, circle this...

Question: Master nursing student collected BMI from 100 patients. Histogram of the data indicated that the distribution of BMI can be well approximated by normal distribution. It appears that 16th sample percentile of her data was 22.5 kg/m2 and 95% confidence interval for the population mean BMI was (27.7kg/m2, 28.0kg/m2) a) Approximately, the sample mean...

Question: A sample of 85 male professors at a major four-year university produced a mean annual pay of $75,600 and a standard deviation of $4,550. A sample of 80 female professors at the same university produced a mean of $68,250 and a standard deviation of $6,250. Does this constitute enough evidence to conclude that male...

Question: The mean length of time required for a random sample of 100 students to earn a bachelor's degree at a certain college is 4.5 years. Assuming that the population standard deviation is 2.5 years, construct a 99% confident interval estimate for the mean time to graduation for all students at the college. (15 points)
