## math week 7

hi you completed my lab 5 hw so I will attach everything you need ,please follow instructions and answer all questions

Steps to Complete the Week 7 Lab

Step 1: Find these articles in the Chamberlain Library. Once you click each link, you will be logged into the Library (article are attached confidence part 1 & 2

First Article: Confidence Intervals, Part 1 Links to an external site.

Second Article: Confidence Intervals, Part 2 Links to an external site.

Step 2: Consider the use of confidence intervals in health sciences with these articles as inspiration and insights.

Step 3: Using the data you collected for the Week 5 Lab (heights of 10 different people that you work with plus the 10 heights provided by your instructor), discuss your method of collection for the values that you are using in your study (systematic, convenience, cluster, stratified, simple random). What are some faults with this type of data collection? What other types of data collection could you have used, and how might this have affected your study?

Step 4: Now use the Week 6 Spreadsheet to help you with calculations for the following questions/statements.

a) Give a point estimate (mean) for the average height of all people at the place where you work. Start by putting the 20 heights you are working with into the blue Data column of the spreadsheet. What is your point estimate, and what does this mean?

example of adding a point estimate to spreadsheet

b) Find a 95% confidence interval for the true mean height of all the people at your place of work. What is the interval? [see screenshot below]

c) Give a practical interpretation of the interval you found in part b, and explain carefully what the output means. (For example, you might say, "I am 95% confident that the true mean height of all of the people in my company is between 64 inches and 68 inches").

d) Post a screenshot of your work from the t value Confidence Interval for µ from the Confidence Interval tab on the Week 6 Excel spreadsheet

Step 5: Now, change your confidence level to 99% for the same data, and post a screenshot of this table, as well.

Lab 7 Lecture Notes

You will need your Week 5 Lab Data!!

1. Go to Modules in the course room and click on Week 7 Lesson:

Hypothesis Testing

2. Click on Week 7 Assignment: Lab

3. Download the Week 6

4. Let’s look at our data from Lab 5!

Data Set: Ten Grades on the Midterm Exam

50 68 74 77 80

86 86 80 78 90

Mean: ________ Our Score: _________

Standard Deviation: _________

5. Find a 95% confidence interval for the true mean Midterm Average of all

the people in the class. What is the interval? [Provide a Screenshot].

6. Give a practical interpretation of the 95% confidence interval.

7. Find a 99% confidence interval for the true mean Midterm Average of all

the people in the class. What is the interval? [Provide a Screenshot].

8. Give a practical interpretation of the 99% confidence interval. Would the

margin of error be larger or smaller for the 99% CI? Explain your reasoning.

Step 6: Compare the margins of error from the two screenshots. Would the margin of error be larger or smaller for the 99% CI? Explain your reasoning.

Step 7: Save the Week 7 Lab document with your answers and include your name in the title.

Step 8: Submit the document.
