d. Using a 98% confidence level instead of a 95% confidence level would make the intervals wider. 2. Problem 5.78 _ a. Y= 28.7 b. s= 3.8/√38 = 0.6164 c. 95% confidence interval t= (28.7 – 30)/3.8/√38 t= -1.3/ 0.6164 = -2.11 0.05/2=0.025 t 0.025 = 2.030 for n-1 = 37 (used 35 to be more conservative) Interval: 28.7 – 2.030 * (3.8/√38) = 27.4486 28.7 + 2.030* (3.8/√38) = 29.9513

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
