**PsyDAG**, Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 11:24am% = mean ± ? SEm

SEm = SD/√n

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability ([1-%]/2) to find the Z score. Insert that into ? position.

Example: 95% = 74.8 ± 1.96 SEm

After you do a through c, you should be able to explain.
