For the particular problem raised in the introduction, assume that the total bill is $44. to answer the question "how should the bill be split?" we will create a linear equation. the unknown is how much money a single person (besides anika) must pay, so call that x. although four people (you plus three friends) went to dinner, only three are paying the unknown amount x for a total of 3x. since anika is paying $2, the total amount paid is 3x+2 dollars, which must equal the amount of the bill, $44. thus, the equation to find x is 3x+2=44. the steps for solving a linear equation are as follows: move all of the constants to the right side. move all of the variable terms (terms containing x) to the left side. divide both sides by the coefficient of the variable to isolate the variable. you will go through these steps one at a time to solve the equation and determine how much each person should pay.

A sample of 16 from a population produced a mean of 85.4 and a standard deviation of 14.8. a sample of 18 from another population produced a mean of 74.9 and a standard deviation of 16.0. assume that the two populations are normally distributed and the standard deviations of the two populations are equal. the null hypothesis is that the two population means are equal, while the alternative hypothesis is that the mean of the first population is different than the mean of the second population. the significance level is 1%.

An automobile manufacturer sold 30,000 new cars, one to each of 30,000 customers, in a certain year. The manufacturer was interested in investigating the proportion of the new cars that experienced a mechanical problem within the first 5,000 miles driven. (a)A list of the names and addresses of all customers who bought the new cars is available. Describe a sampling plan that could be used to obtain a simple random sample of 1,000 customers from the list.Each customer from a simple random sample of 1,000 customers who bought one of the new cars was asked whether they experienced any mechanical problems within the first 5,000 miles driven. Forty customers from the sample reported a problem. Of the 40 customers who reported a problem, 13 customers, or 32.5%, reported a problem specifically with the power door locks. (b)Explain why 0.325 should not be used to estimate the population proportion of the 30,000 new cars sold that experienced a problem with the power door locks within the first 5,000 miles driven. (c)Based on the results of the sample, give a point estimate of the number of new cars sold that experienced a problem with the power door locks within the first 5,000 miles driven.
