# Homework Help: statistics

Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, July 17, 2010 at 11:50am.

1. A random sample of size 49 is taken from a large population, measuring the time it takes to complete a driver’s license examination. The sample mean was found to be 47 minutes, and the sample standard deviation 5.89 minutes. Construct a 95% confidence interval around the sample mean. Be sure to show whether you use the t- or z- value, and what value you use. Even though you are normally “allowed” to use an approximate value of “t” or “z” for this percent confidence, I want you to use the exact value appropriate for these circumstances. Interpret the confidence interval in a single sentence. In another sentence, state why you used either the “t” or the “z”.
