# Question : 96) A sample of 81 calculus students at a large : 1413646

96) A sample of 81 calculus students at a large college had a mean mathematics ACT score of 26 with a standard deviation of 6.  Find a 95% confidence interval for the mean mathematics ACT score for all calculus students at this college.

_____________

98) Typically, how much sugar is in a cookie with reduced sugar? You take a random sample of 51 reduced-sugar cookies and test them in a lab, finding a mean sugar content of 3.2 grams and a standard deviation of 1.1 grams of sugar. Create a 99% confidence interval for the mean grams of sugar.

_____________

99) How tall is your average English classmate? To determine this, you measure the height of a random sample of 15 of your 200 fellow students, finding a mean height of 68 inches and a standard deviation of  2.3 inches.  Construct a 90% confidence interval for the mean height of your classmates.

MULTIPLE CHOICE.  Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question.

101) Suppose that you want to construct a 95% confidence interval for estimating a population mean.  How does the margin of error with a sample size of 100 compare with the margin of error with a sample size of 2500, if both samples have the same standard deviation?

101) _____

A) The margin of error for the first interval will be 5 times larger than the margin of error for the second interval.

B) The margin of error for the first interval will be 25 times larger than the margin of error for the second interval.

C) The margin of error for the second interval will be 25 times larger than the margin of error for the first interval.

D) The margin of error for the second interval will be 5 times larger than the margin of error for the first interval.

SHORT ANSWER.  Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question.

102) A sociologist wishes to construct a confidence interval for the mean time spent on a social-networking website each week by  students at one college.  She selects a random sample of students of size n = 200. How would the width of a 90% confidence interval compare with the width of a 99% interval if both intervals are based on this same sample?
