I have given a site where you can find most of the information regarding general statements about confidence intervals. For the T test, Z test, etc. please show your calculations and someone will check them for you. By the way, this forum (and others like it on the Internet) simply cannot draw graphs, histograms, and the like. You can, however, find graphs and histograms that may be similar to your problem and compare your work to that which you find on the Internet.
