    [ 23.37, 28.63]

  • Statistics -

    $9,531 to $11,269


    $9,347 to $11,453


    $10,028 to $10,772


    $9,414 to $11,386

    Are my multiple choice

  • Statistics -

    mean 26(400) = $10400

    Standard deviation = 8(400) = 3200
    10400-+ 2.3263*3200/sqrt(50))


    [$9,347, 11,453]
