% = 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.
