1. Margin of error = z-value (sd/√n)

Find the z-value corresponding to 90% confidence using a z-table.

sd = standard deviation
n = sample size

I hope this will help get you started.

2. Please someone help me? The new twinkle bulb has a standard deviation 35 hours. A random sample of 50 light bulbs is selected from inventory. The sample mean was found to be x=500 hrs. Find the margin of error for 95%, construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean life of all Twinkle bulbs. I am desperate.
