When n 2 30 you can use 3 in place of 6, where s is the sample standard deviation. E c = Z _ c Vn The level of confidence 0 is the area under the standard normal curve between the critical values - 2c and 20. The area outside the critical values is 1 ~ c, so the area in each tail is :(1 — 0). Substitute the value of c to solve for the area in each tail of the confidence region. i i _ 2(1—c) 2(10.95) .025 While you can use a standard normal table or technology to find the critical value, for this problem we will use a standard normal table. Use a standard normal table to find the positive critical value that corresponds to a tail area of 0.025. 26: 1.96 The population standard deviation 0 is unknown but because n 2 30, use 5 in place of 6. Substitute the values zc= 1.960, oz 5 z 2.4, andn = 36 to find E. o E : 26—” 2.4 1.960— V 36 .784 I! ll Therefore, the margin of error is approximately 0.784. Page 1 ...
