Question

A random sample of 36 students at a community college showed an average age of 25 years. Assume the ages of all students at the college are normally distributed with a standard deviation of 1.8 years. The 98% confidence interval for the average age of all students at this college is 15.2 to 24.8 19.2 to 20.8 19.216 to 20.784 21.2 to 22.8 Question 6 10 points Save Exhibit 8-1 In order to estimate the average time spent on the computer terminals per student at a local university, data were collected from a sample of 81 business students over a one-week period.
