An experimental egg farm is raising chickens to produce low cholesterol eggs. A lab tested 12 randomly selected eggs and found that the mean amount of cholesterol was x = 186 mg. The sample standard deviation was found to be s = 19.0 mg on this group. Assume that the population is normally distributed.

Question: Find the margin of error for a 95% confidence interval. Round your answer to the nearest tenths.

Answer: 1.96(19/√16) = 9.31

Question: Find a 95% confidence interval for the mean µ cholesterol content for all experimental eggs. Assume that the population is normally distributed.

Answer:

1.96 – 9.31 = 7.35

1.96 + 9.31 = 11.27
