The 92 million Americans of age 50 and over control 50% of all discretionary income (AARP Bulletin, March 2008). AARP estimated that the average annual expenditure on restaurants and carry out food was $1873 for individuals in this age group.

b. What is the 95% confidence interval for the population mean amount spent on restaurants and carryout food?
c. What is your estimate of the total amount spent by Americans of age 50 and over on restaurants and carryout food?
