3 Estimating the Confidence Interval the Chevy Impala in Miles Per Gallon Let’s suppose that you have been asked to be a part of a larger study looking at the carbon footprint of Chevy Impala drivers. You are interested in the average miles per gallon (mpg) of a Chevy Impala. You asked owners of the Chevy Impala to keep track of their mileage and the number of gallons used for two tanks of gas. 01 mpg. e. 43. The 95 % confidence interval for these data would be: 27:83 Æ 1:96ð0:43Þ The upper limit of this confidence interval uses the plus sign of the Æ sign in the formula.

Number of the first 15 test tubes that you would use in your research study (g) Save the file as: RAND9 Important note: Note that everyone who does this problem will generate a different random order of test tube ID numbers since Excel assigns a different random number each time the RAND() command is used. For this reason, the answer to this problem given in this Excel Guide will have a completely different sequence of random numbers from the random sequence that you generate. This is normal and what is to be expected.

9 because Excel assigns a different random number each time the ¼RAND() command is given. Before we leave this chapter, you need to learn how to print a file so that all of the information on that file fits onto a single page without “dribbling over” onto a second or third page. 4 31 Printing an Excel File So That All of the Information Fits onto One Page Objective: To print a file so that all of the information fits onto one page Note that the three practice problems at the end of this chapter require you to sort random numbers when the files contain 63 test tubes, 114 steel samples, and 75 field mice, respectively.
