If it is known that the standard deviation is 5 mathematicians, find a 99% confidence interval for the population mean.

Answer #1

We would be looking at the first question here on confidence interval.

Q1) We are given the population standard deviation here, therfore we will use standard normal tables, to get the critical value here.

For 90% confidence level, we have from standard normal
tables:

P(-1.645 < Z < 1.645) = 0.9

therefore the confidence interval for the population mean here is computed as:

**This is the required 90% confidence interval for the
population mean here.**

In a survey of randomly selected subjects, the mean age of 40
respondents is 36.4 years, and the sample standard deviation of all
ages is known to be 10.1 years. Construct a 95% confidence interval
estimate of the mean age of the population from which the sample
was selected.
