QUESTION 12

  1. 64 samples were taken of a stream flow over the course of a year. A sample mean of 16 cubic feet per minute (cfm) was calculated.  The population standard deviation of stream flows is 2 cfm.  Calculate the 90% confidence limits (LCL, UCL).

QUESTION 13

  1. 49 samples were taken of a stream flow over the course of a year.  A sample mean of 16 cubic feet per minute (cfm) was calculated.  The sample standard deviation of stream flows is 2 cfm as no population standard deviation was available. What are the 95% confidence limits?

QUESTION 15

  1. The t distribution is used when the population standard deviation is unknown.   If you sample 33 fisherman concerning their favorite type of lure for largemouth bass.  What is the value of "t" you would use in any further calculations if you wanted 99% confidence?  If you knew the population standard deviation for fishermen in this case, what is the value of z you would use in any further calculations for 99% confidence?

a.

t = 1.694, z = 1.65

b.

t = 2.733, z = 2.576

c.

t = 2.738, z = 2.576

d.

t = 2.037, z = 1.96
