From Table II, we find Φ(2.14) = P(Z<2.14) = 0.9838 and the confidence level is 100(1.032354) = 96.76%. b.) The confidence level for nxnx/49.2/49.2σμσ+≤≤is determined by the by the value of z0 which is 2.14. From Table II, we find Φ(2.49) = P(Z<2.49) = 0.9936 and the confidence level is is 100(1.012774) = 98.72%. c.) The confidence level for nxnx/85.1/85.1σμσ+≤≤is determined by the by the value of z0 which is 2.14. From Table II, we find Φ(1.85) = P(Z<1.85) = 0.9678 and the confidence level is 93.56%. 82 a.) A zα= 2.33 would give result in a 98% twosided confidence interval. b.) A zα= 1.29 would give result in a 80% twosided confidence interval. c.) A zα= 1.15 would give result in a 75% twosided confidence interval. 83 a.) A zα= 1.29 would give result in a 90% onesided confidence interval. b.) A zα= 1.65 would give result in a 95% onesided confidence interval. c.) A zα= 2.33 would give result in a 99% onesided confidence interval. 84a.) 95% CI for 96.1,100020,10,====zxnσμ4.10126.987)10/20(96.11000)10/20(96.11000//≤≤+≤≤+≤≤μμσμσnzxnzxb.) .95% CI for 96.1,100020,25,====zxnσμ8.10072.992)25/20(96.11000)25/20(96.11000//≤≤+≤≤+≤≤μμσμσnzxnzxc.) 99% CI for 58.2,100020,10,====zxnσμ3.10167.983)10/20(58.21000)10/20(58.21000//≤≤+≤≤+≤≤μμσμσnzxnzxd.) 99% CI for 58.2,100020,25,====zxnσμ3.10107.989)25/20(58.21000)25/20(58.21000//≤≤+≤≤+≤≤μμσμσnzxnzx82 85 Find n for the length of the 95% CI to be 40.

The probability that μis between 0.49 and 0.82 is either 0 or 1. c). Yes, this is the correct interpretation of a confidence interval.
