Chapter 19 (Page 504): #7: Which statements are true? a) For a given sample size, higher confidence means a smaller margin of error. b) For a specified confidence level, larger samples provides smaller margins of error. c) For a fixed margin of error, larger samples provide greater confidence. d) For a given confidence level, halving the margin of error requires a sample twice as large. 6

Chapter 19 (Page 504): #8: Which statements are true? a) For a given sample size, reducing the margin of error will mean lower confidence. b) For a certain confidence level, you can get a smaller margin of error by selecting a bigger sample. c) For a fixed margin of error, smaller samples will mean lower confidence. d) For a given confidence level, a sample 9 times as large will make a margin of error one third as big. 7
