Question

Starting salaries of 64 college graduates who have taken a statistics course have a mean of $43,500 with a standard deviation of $6,800. Find a 68% confidence interval for μ. (NOTE: Do not use commas or dollar signs in your answers. Round each bound to three decimal places.)

Answer #1

We need to construct the 68% confidence interval for the population mean μ. The following information is provided:

Sample Mean = | 43500 |

Sample Standard Deviation = | 6800 |

Sample Size = | 64 |

The critical value for α=0.32 and df=n−1=63 degrees of freedom is . The corresponding confidence interval is computed as shown below:

Therefore, based on the data provided, the 68% confidence interval for the population mean is 442647.986<μ<44352.014, which indicates that we are 68% confident that the true population mean μ is contained by the interval (42647.986, 44352.014)

How to calculate margin of error for this question?
Starting salaries of 80 college graduates who have taken a
statistics course have a mean of $42,893. Suppose the distribution
of this population is approximately normal and has a standard
deviation of $10,748.
Use a 93% confidence level.
