What price do farmers get for their watermelon crops? In the third week of July, a random sample of 51 farming regions gave a sample mean of = \$7.08 per 100 pounds of watermelon. Assume that is known to be \$1.80 per 100 pounds. Find a 99% confidence interval for the population mean price (per 100 pounds) that farmers in this region get for their watermelon crop. Round your answer to the nearest cent.
a. \$6.93 to \$5.93 per 100 pounds
b. \$6.89 to \$7.27 per 100 pounds
c. \$6.99 to \$7.17 per 100 pounds
d. \$6.83 to \$7.33 per 100 pounds
e. \$6.43 to \$7.73 per 100 pounds
