NASA is conducting an experiment to find out the fraction of people who black out at G forces greater than 6

NASA is conducting an experiment to find out the fraction of people who black out at G forces greater than 6. Suppose a sample of 543 People is drawn. Of these people, 217 passed out at G forces greater than 6. Using the data, estimate the proportion of people who pass out at more than 6 Gs. Enter your answer as a fraction or a decimal number rounded to three decimal places.

A technician working for the Chase-National Food Additive Company would like to estimate the preserving ability of a new additive

A technician working for the Chase-National Food Additive Company would like to estimate the preserving ability of a new additive. This additive will be used for Auntie’s brand preserves. Based on past tests, it is believed that the time to spoilage for this additive has a standard deviation of 8 days. To be 95% confident of the true mean time to spoilage, what sample size will be needed to estimate the mean time to spoilage with an accuracy of one day?

The electric cooperative needs to know the mean household usage of electricity by its non-commercial customers in kWh per day

The electric cooperative needs to know the mean household usage of electricity by its non-commercial customers in kWh per day. They would like the estimate to have a maximum error of 0.13 kWh. A previous study found that for an average family the standard deviation is 2.1 kWh and the mean is 15.8 kWh per day. If they are using a 99% level of confidence, how large of a sample is required to estimate the mean usage of electricity? Round your answer up to the next integer.
