In order to estimate the mean 30year fixed mortgage rate for a home loan in the United States, a random sample of 28 recent loans is taken. The average calculated from this sample is 5.25%. It can be assumed that 30year fixed mortgage rates are normally distributed with a standard deviation of 0.50%. Compute 90% and 99% confidence intervals for the population mean 30year fixed mortgage rate. Use Table 1. (Round intermediate calculations to 4 decimal places, " z" value and final answers to 2 decimal places. Enter your answers as percentages, not decimals.)

A family is relocating from St. Louis, Missouri, to California. Due to an increasing inventory of houses in St. Louis, it is taking longer than before to sell a house. The wife is concerned and wants to know when it is optimal to put their house on the market. They ask their realtor friend for help and she informs them that the last 26 houses that sold in their neighborhood took an average time of 218 days to sell. The realtor also tells them that based on her prior experience, the population standard deviation is 72 days. Use Table 1. 
a. 
What assumption regarding the population is necessary for making an interval estimate for the population mean?

The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA ^{®}) designation is fast becoming a requirement for serious investment professionals. Although it requires a successful completion of three levels of grueling exams, it also entails promising careers with lucrative salaries. A student of finance is curious about the average salary of a CFA ^{®} charterholder. He takes a random sample of 36 recent charterholders and computes a mean salary of $158,000 with a standard deviation of $36,000. Assuming a normal distribution, use this sampleinformation to determine the 95% confidence interval for the average salary of a CFA charterholder.Use Table 2. (Round intermediate calculations to 4 decimal places, " t" value to 3 decimal places, and final answers to the nearest whole number.)
