Request Description

88. Refer to the Baseball 2005 data, which reports information on the 30 major league teams for the 2005 baseball season.

a. Select the variable team salary and find the mean, median, and the standard deviation.

b. Select the variable that refers to the age the stadium was built. (Hint: Subtract the

year in which the stadium was built from the current year to find the stadium age and

work with that variable.) Find the mean, median, and the standard deviation.

c. Select the variable that refers to the seating capacity of the stadium. Find the mean,

Median, and the standard deviation.

56. Assume the likelihood that any flight on Northwest Airlines arrives within 15 minutes of the scheduled time is .90. We select four flights from yesterday for study.

a. What is the likelihood all four of the selected flights arrived within 15 minutes of the scheduled time?

b. What is the likelihood that none of the selected flights arrived within 15 minutes of

the scheduled time?

c. What is the likelihood at least one of the selected flights did not arrive within 15 minutes of the scheduled time?

64. An internal study by the Technology Services department at Lahey Electronics revealed company employees receive an average of two emails per hour. Assume the arrival of these emails is approximated by the Poisson distribution.

a. What is the probability Linda Lahey, company president, received exactly 1 email

between 4 P.M. and 5 P.M. yesterday?

b. What is the probability she received 5 or more email during the same period?

50. Fast Service Truck Lines uses the Ford Super Duty F-750 exclusively. Management made a study of the maintenance costs and determined the number of miles traveled during the year followed the normal distribution. The mean of the distribution was 60,000 miles and the standard deviation 2,000 miles.

a. What percent of the Ford Super Duty F-750s logged 65,200 miles or more?

b. What percent of the trucks logged more than 57,060 but less than 58,280 miles?

c. What percent of the Fords traveled 62,000 miles or less during the year?

d. Is it reasonable to conclude that any of the trucks were driven more than 70,000 miles? Explain.

38. The mean amount purchased by a typical customer at Churchill’s Grocery Store is $23.50 with a standard deviation of $5.00. Assume the distribution of amounts purchased follows the normal distribution. For a sample of 50 customers, answer the following questions.

a. What is the likelihood the sample mean is at least $25.00?

b. What is the likelihood the sample mean is greater than $22.50 but less than $25.00?

c. Within what limits will 90 percent of the sample means occur

54. Families USA, a monthly magazine that discusses issues related to health and health costs, surveyed 20 of its subscribers. It found that the annual health insurance premiums for a family with coverage through an employer averaged $10,979. The standard deviation of the sample was $1,000.

a. Based on this sample information, develop a 90 percent confidence interval for the

population mean yearly premium.

b. How large a sample is needed to find the population mean within $250 at 99 percent confidence?

42. During recent seasons, Major League Baseball has been criticized for the length of the games. A report indicated that the average game lasts 3 hours and 30 minutes. A sample of 17 games revealed the following times to completion. (Note that the minutes have been changed to fractions of hours, so that a game that lasted 2 hours and 24 minutes is reported at 2.40 hours.)

2.98 2.40 2.70 2.25 3.23 3.17 2.93 3.18 2.80

2.38 3.75 3.20 3.27 2.52 2.58 4.45 2.45

Can we conclude that the mean time for a game is less than 3.50 hours? Use the .05

58. The amount of income spent on housing is an important component of the cost of living.

The total costs of housing for homeowners might include mortgage payments, property

taxes, and utility costs (water, heat, electricity). An economist selected a sample of

20 homeowners in New England and then calculated these total housing costs as a percent

of monthly income, five years ago and now. The information is reported below. Is it

reasonable to conclude the percent is less now than five years ago?

42. Martin Motors has in stock three cars of the same make and model. The president would like to compare the gas consumption of the three cars (labeled car A, car B, and car C) using four different types of gasoline. For each trial, a gallon of gasoline was added to an empty tank, and the car was driven until it ran out of gas. The following table shows the number of miles driven in each trial.

Distance (miles)

Types of Gasoline Car A Car B Car C

Regular 22.4 20.8 21.5

Super regular 17.0 19.4 20.7

Unleaded 19.2 20.2 21.2

Premium unleaded 20.3 18.6 20.4

Using the .05 level of significance:

a. Is there a difference among types of gasoline?

b. Is there a difference in the cars?

37. A regional commuter airline selected a random sample of 25 flights and found that the correlation between the number of passengers and the total weight, in pounds, of luggage stored in the luggage compartment is 0.94. Using the .05 significance level, can we conclude that there is a positive association between the two variables?

40. A suburban hotel derives its gross income from its hotel and restaurant operations. The owners are interested in the relationship between the number of rooms occupied on a nightly basis and the revenue per day in the restaurant. Below is a sample of 25 days (Monday through Thursday) from last year showing the restaurant income and number of rooms occupied
