The manufacturer of batteries used in small electric appliances wants to
establish the average life of a battery. A random sampleof 12 batteries yields a sample meanof 34.2 hours, and a sample standard deviationof 5.9 hours. Give a 95% confidence intervalfor the average life of a battery. Assume the underlying distribution is normal.
How many test runs (i.e. minimum sample size) of an automobile are required for determining it’s average miles-per-gallon rating on the highway to within 2 miles per gallon with 95% confidence, if a good guess is that the varianceof the population of miles per gallon is about 100?
