Sample size, n=40 Sample={x, x1, x2, x3, …} 3. Sample mean X_=$120 4. sample standard deviation, s=$17.50 (X1-x_)^2+(X2-x_)^2….(X40- x_)^2/40-1 5. Confidence level is 1-o=0.95 (95%), o=0.05 The 95% confidence interval for the unknown population mean U (the unknown average repair cost of all broken washing machines) is given by: 120+-(Z0.05/2)*17.5/sqrt40 120+-(1.96)17.5/6.225 120+-5.42 114.58, 125.42 we’re 95% confident that the unknown population U (the unknown average repair cost of all broken machines) lies between 114.58 & 125.42 Known that: 6.
