Looking for help with some of my stats homework, I got parts of it but then hit a brink wall. Any help would be welcome.

a. What does the “\$525 plus or minus \$250” mean?

b. What does the “80% of the time” mean?

c. If you make \$300 to the nearest \$10 most weeks, will she have told you the truth? Explain.

This is a confidence interval. She is 80% confident that your earnings will be between \$270-775 (\$525±250).
