Arecent gallup poll asked 1006 americans, "during the past year, about how many books, either hardcover or paperback, did you read either all or part of the way through? " results of the survey indicated that x = 13.4 books and s = 16.6 books. construct a 99% confidence interval for the mean number of books americans read either all or part of during the preceding year. interpret that interval.
The required interval is
Consider the provided information.
It is given that:
n = 1006, mean = 13.4 and s = 16.6
We need to construct a 99% confidence interval.
That means α = 0.01 and α/2 = 0.005
First find the standard error as shown:
Now to calculate confidence interval calculate:
Hence, the required interval is
for every hour i deducted .5 inches from the length of the candle
it is a function because for every x value there is only one y value
for every x value there is only one y value
