Determine the critical value, Tc, corresponding to the chosen level of confidence and the degrees of freedom.  Compute the margin of error, ! = !! ⋅  ! ! . Compute the confidence interval, ! − ! , ! + !  Interpret the confidence interval in context. The level of confidence is the proportion of intervals that contain the population mean, µ, and it is how confident we are that the interval contains the population mean. TRY THESE...
