What is the probability that it will take more than 19 hours to make 1100 gallons of synthetic rubber?

16. **(TCO 10)** The annual rice yield (in pounds), is given by the equation y-hat = 859 + 5.76a + 3.82b, where ‘a’ is the number of acres planted (in thousands), and ‘b’ is the number of acres harvested (in thousands). Predict the annual rice yield (in pounds) when the number of acres planted is 2550 (in thousands) and the number of acres harvested is 2245 (in thousands).

17. **(TCO 9)** Describe the correlation in this graph.

18. **(TCO 8)** For the following statement, write the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis. Then, label the one that is the claim being made.

19. **(TCO 11)** A 15-minute Oil and Lube service claims that their average service time is no more than 15 minutes. A random sample of 35 service times was collected, and the sample mean was found to be 16.2 minutes, with a sample standard deviation of 3.5 minutes. Is there evidence to support, or to reject the claim at the alpha = 0.05 level? Perform an appropriate hypothesis test, showing the necessary calculations and/or explaining the process used to obtain the results. Writing the formal conclusion is an important part of the process.

20. **(TCO 5)** The probability that a house in an urban area will be burglarized is 5%. If 50 houses are randomly selected, what is the probability that one of the houses will be burglarized? (a) Is this a binomial experiment? Explain how you know. (b) Use the correct formula to find the probability that, out of 50 houses, exactly 4 of the houses will be burglarized. Show your calculations or explain how you found the probability.

21. **(TCO 6)** The average monthly gasoline purchase for a family with 2 cars is 90 gallons. This statistic has a normal distribution with a standard deviation of 10 gallons. A family is chosen at random.

22. **(TCO 8)** An engineering firm is evaluating their back charges. They originally believed their average back charge was $1800. They are concerned that the true average is higher, which could hurt their quarterly earnings. They randomly select 40 customers, and calculate the corresponding sample mean back charge to be $1950. If the standard deviation of back charges is $500, and alpha = 0.04, should the engineering firm be concerned? Perform an appropriate hypothesis test, showing the necessary calculations and/or explaining the process used to obtain the results.

23. **(TCO 7)** A marketing firm wants to estimate the average amount spent by patients at the hospital pharmacy. For a sample of 200 randomly selected patients, the mean amount spent was $92.75 and the standard deviation $13.10. (a) Find a 95% confidence interval for the mean amount spent by patients at the pharmacy. Show your calculations and/or explain the process used to obtain the interval. (b) Interpret this confidence interval and write a sentence that explains it.

24. **(TCO 7)** A drug manufacturer wants to estimate the mean heart rate for patients with a certain heart condition. Because the condition is rare, the manufacturer can only find 15 people with the condition currently untreated. From this small sample, the mean heart rate is 92 beats per minute with a standard deviation of 8. (a) Find a 98% confidence interval for the true mean heart rate of all people with this untreated condition. Show your calculations and/or explain the process used to obtain the interval. (b) Interpret this confidence interval and write a sentence that explains it.

25. **(TCO 2)** The heights of 10 sixth graders are listed in inches: {50, 62, 54, 57, 60, 57, 53, 57, 59, 58}. (a) Find the mean, median, mode, sample variance, and range. (b) Do you think that this sample might have come from a normal population? Why or why not?
