Answer #1

The provided sample mean is Xˉ=$42 and the sample standard deviation is s=$4. The size of the sample is n = 13n=13 and the required confidence level is 98%.

The number of degrees of freedom are df=13−1=12, and the significance level is \alpha = 0.02α=0.02.

Based on the provided information, the critical t-value for α=0.02 and df=12 degrees of freedom is tc=2.681.

The 98% confidence for the population mean \muμ is computed using the following expression

Therefore, based on the information provided, the 98 % confidence for the population mean \muμ is

CI= (42 - 2.974, 42 + 2.974)

**CI=(39.026,44.974)**

**INTERPRETATION:**

**We are 98% confident that
the population mean lies within the range 39.026<
<44.974.**

**please rate my answer and comment for
doubts.**
