I need help on this one too. Any one willing to get me started? THANKS!

Potassium is a mineral that helps the kidneys function normally. It also plays a key role in cardiac, skeletal, and smooth muscle contraction, making it an important nutrient for normal heart, digestive, and muscular function. A test for the level of potassium in the blood is not perfectly precise. Moreover, the actual level of potassium in a person’s blood varies slightly from day to day. Normal levels of potassium range from 3.7 mEq/L to 5.2 mEq/L.

(Note mEq/L represents milliequivalents per liter – which is just a type of concentration measurement.)

a) What does the phrase “statistically significant” mean? Explain.

b) If nine measurements for Jason were taken on different days with levels (mEq/L) given by 3.6, 3.7, 5.1, 5.6, 5.4, 4.7, 4.6, 3.8, and 5.2 respectively what is a 95% confidence level for his mean potassium level?

c) Do you think his potassium levels are normal? Explain.

This was already posted.
