a. Find the 90% confidence interval for the mean SAT-math score for the population of all seniors in the
b. Explain the meaning of the above confidence interval. 3. The effect of exercise on the amount of lactic acid in the blood was examined in an article for an
exercise and sport magazine. Eight males were selected at random from those attending a week-long
training camp. Blood lactate levels were measured before and after playing three games of racquetball,
as shown in the accompanying table. Use this data to estimate the mean increase in blood lactate level
using a 95% confidence interval.
