Solution- 7-55
X= the life span of the employee in southern textile
It is given the total life span varies between 550 weeks.
6σ = 550

σ= 550/5= 91.66

Also the confidence level is 98%.
α = .02 α/2 = 0.01 then z= 2.33
The required equation is
n> (Z α/2 X σ/B) ² > (2.33 X 91.67 / 30)² ≥ 7.120² ≥ 50.69
So, the sample size should be minimum 51.

Solution 7-69
X = Average no. of hours television watched in a week by a household
σ = 1.1 hour, B = 0.3 hours
CI = 98%, so α = 0.02 , So α/2 = 0.01
So, n ≥ (Z α/2 X σ/B) ² ≥ ( 2.33 X 1.1 / 0.3)² ≥ 8.543² ≥ 72.98
So, minimum sample size should be 73 for Harris Polls

Solution 8-25
a) Dr. Ross would be interesting to know that the heart beat of smoker is more than 78 beats per
min during the day time compare to the non smoker which has the average heart beat 78 per min.
The hypotheses are
H0 : µ = 78 beats per min
H1 : µ > 78 beats per min

1 .1 is less than 957. That means average weekly sales has come down at significance level of 2%. The hypotheses are H0 : µ = 15 high-nicotine cigarettes per day H1 : µ > 15 cigarettes per day Solution 8-29 a) X = Average weekly hot chocolate sales after the recent year long coffee advertisement campaign.02 S V = µ . Null Hypothesis is H0 : µ = 984.39. Solution SC12-6 Y X 10 11 12 15 8 3 15 18 9 10 11 12 8 6 10 7 13 18 11 13 . α = 0.7 pounds Alternate hypothesis is H1 : µ < 984. i.b) Dr. x‾ = 912.7 – 2. if x‾ < SV b) σ = 72.6 .06 X 72. 912.e.6 / √30 = 957.Z α X σ / √n = 984.39 As x‾. H0 is rejected. n = 30. Ross would be interesting to know that the average number of cigarettes consumed by the smoker is more than the 15 cigarette if he or she switches to another brand which is having low nicotine content.7 pounds Reject H0 .
