Find the 95% confidence limits for the mean of the population from which the sample is drawn.(6 marks) 8 (b) In the past, a machine has produced washers having a thickness of 0.50 mm. To determine whether the machine is in proper working order, a sample of 10 washers is chosen for which the mean thickness is found as 0.53 mm with standard deviation 0.03 mm. Test the hypothesis that the machine is in proper working order, using a level of significance of (i) 0.05 and (ii) 0.01.(7 marks) 8 (c) Genetic theory states than children having one parent of blood type M and the other of blood type N will always be one of the three types. M, MN, N and that the proportions of these types will on an average be 1:2:1.

Test the theory by x2 (Chi square) test.(7 marks)
