Construct a 1. 90% confidence interval for the population mean; 2. 95% confidence interval for the population mean; 3. 99% confidence interval for the population mean; 4. What assumption do you need to make about the population of interest to construct the confidence intervals ?

Two boxes, A and B contain equal numbers of balls (black and white). A sample of 100 balls selected with replacement from each of the boxes revealed 52 white balls form box A and 44 white balls from box B. 1. Test the hypothesis that the two boxes have equal ratio of white balls, using a significance level of 0.05 2. Test the hypothesis that box A has greater ratio of white balls than box B, using a significance level of 0.05 .

Consider the sample data for grades A, B, C & D of four different classes, which are tabulated in table 3. Test whether the four means are equal at the 0.05 level of significance. Perform a test that will compare all 4 means at once. We are not interested in pair-wise comparisons at this stage. Please show all the steps in your calculations.
