Confidence interval for population mean:

1. Consumption of alcoholic beverages by young women of drinking age has been increasing in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Europe (The Wall Street Journal, February 15, 2006). Data (annual consumption in liters) consistent with the findings reported in The Wall Street Journal article are shown for a sample of 20 European young women.

Excel or Minitab users: The data set is available in file named Alcohol. All data sets can be found in your eBook or on your Student CD.

 162 82 199 174 97 170 222 115 115 169 164 98 132 171 0 93 0 93 110 434

Assuming the population is roughly symmetric, construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean annual consumption of alcoholic beverages by European young women (to 1 decimal).

2. The daily car rental rates for a sample of eight cities follow.

 City Daily Car Rental Rate (\$) Atlanta 69 Chicago 72 Dallas 75 New Orleans 67 Phoenix 62 Pittsburgh 65 San Francisco 61 Seattle 59

a. Compute the sample variance and the sample standard deviation for these data (to 2 decimals).

b. What is the 95% confidence interval estimate of the variance of car rental rates for the population (to 1 decimal)?

c. What is the 95% confidence interval estimate of the standard deviation for the population (to 1 decimal)?
