- Amount of money spent: X = $21.34, S=$9.22

- 37 customers own only a dog

- 26 customers own only a cat

- 7 customers own more than one dog and/or cat

a) Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean amount in the pet supply.

b) Construct a 90% confidence interval estimate of the population proportion of customers who own only a cat

The branch manager of another outlet (Store 2) wishes to conduct a similar survey in the store. The manager does not have access to the information generated by the manager of Store 1. Answer the following questions:

c) What sample size is needed to have 95% confidence of estimating the population mean amount spent in his store within +/-$1.50 if the standard deviation is $10

d) What sample size is needed to have 90% confidence of estimating the population proportion of customers who own only a cat to within +/-0.045?

e) Based on your answers for c and d, how large a sample should the manager take?

Note*The manager at store 2 only has enough money budgeted to do one sample analysis
