Minutes 18 30.06 29.50 30.06 5.68 1.34
Variable Minimum Maximum Q1 Q3
Minutes 19.00 41.00 26.50 34.00
a) It is known that the standard deviation for all commute times is 6 minutes.
Construct a 98% confidence interval for the average commute time for all workers at the assembly plant. You may use any of the Minitab Output above.
b) Write a complete confidence statement for the interval you calculated in part a.
