Allen's hummingbird (Selasphorus sasin) has been studied by zoologist Bill Alther.† Suppose a small group of 17 Allen's hummingbirds has been under study in Arizona. The average weight for these birds is x = 3.15 grams. Based on previous studies, we can assume that the weights of Allen's hummingbirds have a normal distribution, with σ = 0.26 gram.
Find an 80% confidence interval for the average weights of Allen's hummingbirds in the study region. (Round your answers to two decimal places.)
margin of error:
80% = mean ± 1.28 SD
