Question 1 Based on a survey of 1,000 adults by Greenfield Online and resported in a May 2009 USA Today Snapshot, adults 24 years of age and under spend a weekly average of $35 on fast food. If 200 of the adults surveyed were in the age catetory of 24 and under and they provided a standard deviation of $14.50, construct a 95% confidence interval for the weekly average expenditure on fast food for adults 24 years of age and under. Assume fast food weekly expenditures are normally distributed. Question 2 An experiment ws designed to estimate the mean difference in weight gain for pigs fed ration A as compared with those fed ration B. Eight pairs of pigs were used. The pigs within each pair were littermates. The rations were assigned at random to the two animals within each pair. The gains (in pounds) after 45 days are shown below: RationA RationB 65 58 37 39 40 31 47 45 49 47 65 55 53 59 59 51 Assuming weight gain is normal, find the 95% confidence interval estimate for th
