Question 5

Ford Motor Company is confident that its 2016 F-150 truck gets 26 miles per gallon on the highway. Before they begin to advertise this fact they want to be 98% certain of their claim. To accomplish this, they take a random sample of 250 trucks and measure their gas mileage. The average was 24.91 mpg with a population standard deviation of 4.77 mpg. Calculate the Upper and Lower Confidence Interval values AND can Ford make the claim that their trucks will get 26 mpg on the highway.

Lower = 25.06, Upper = 26.94 & Claim is yes their trucks do get 26 mpg

Lower = 24.38, Upper = 25.58 & Claim is no their trucks do not get 26 mpg

Lower = 24.21, Upper = 25.61, & Claim is no their trucks do not get 26 mpg

Lower = 24.19, Upper = 25.71, & Claim is no their trucks do not get 26 mpg

Question 14

Refer to the data and your solutions to questions 11 – 13 and identify which of the three models best predicts the expenses of a hospital.

The regression model based upon beds only is the best because it has the highest r value.

The regression model based upon admissions only is the best because it has the highest r value.

The regression model based upon beds and admissions is the best because it has the highest r value.

The regression model based upon beds only is the best because it has the highest r2 value.

The regression model based upon admissions only is the best because it has the highest r2 value.
