(Use ascending order. Round to one decimal place as needed.)

A.There is a

95%

probability that the mean length of sentencing for the crime is between

nothing

and

nothing

months.

B.

95%

of the sentences for the crime are between

nothing

and

nothing

months.

C.We can be

months.

Answer #1

t critical value at 0.05 significance level with 37 df = 2.026

95% confidence interval for is

- t * S / sqrt(n) < < + t * S / sqrt(n)

55 - 2.026 * 8 / sqrt(38) < < 55 + 2.026 * 8 / sqrt(38)

52.4 < < 57.6

95% CI is **(52.4 , 57.6)**

We can be 95% confident that the mean length of sentencing for a crime is between 52.4 and 57.6 months.
