A random sample of 50 observations from a quantitative population produced a sample mean of 65.4 and a variance of 2.8. Which Excel statement will calculate the margin of error?

 a. =65.4-50 b. =65.4-SQRT(2.8) c. =50-SQRT(2.8) d. =1.96*1.67332/SQRT(2.8) e. =1.96*1.67332/SQRT(50) f. None of the above.

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

Point estimate = sample mean = = 65.4

2 = 2.8

Population standard deviation = = 1.67332

Sample size = n = 50

At 95% confidence level the z is ,

= 1 - 95% = 1 - 0.95 = 0.05

/ 2 = 0.05 / 2 = 0.025

Z/2 = Z0.025 = 1.96

Margin of error using excel ,

= 1.96*1.67332/SQRT(50)
