d)Arandomsampleofn=22has x=48ands=9. Form a 95% confidence interval for μ.
3. A random sample of 125 people shows that a) 30 are left-handed.
b) 35 are left-handed. c) 40 are left-handed. d) 45 are left-handed.
Form a 90% confidence interval for the true proportion of left-handers
4. If  = 45, what sample size is needed to estimate the mean within a. ± 5 with 90% confidence?
b. ± 5 with 95% confidence? c. ± 4 with 90% confidence? d. ± 4 with 99% confidence?
