Section 6.3 Confidence Interval For Example (example 6.9 page 192) Lone bone mineral density often leads to hip fractures in the elderly. In an experiment to assess the effectiveness of hormone replacement therapy, researchers gave conjugated equine estrogen (CEE) to a sample of 94 women between the ages of 45 and 64. After taking the medication for 36 months, the bone mineral density was measured for each of the 94 women. The average density was .878 g/cm 2 , with a standard deviation of .126 g/cm 2. Find a 95% confidence interval. μ

Section 6.3 Confidence Interval For Example (example 6.9 page 192) : This is my solution. Thus, we are 95% confident that the average hip done mineral density of all women age 45 to 64 who take CEE for 36 months is between .852 g/cm 2 and .904 g/cm 2 μ /2 /2 /2 .025 ( , ) .05 1.96 .126 .878 (1.96) .878 .025 (.853,.903) 94 s s x z x z n n and z z α - + = = = = =
