In other words, there will be two confidence interval constructions for each normally distributed variable – one for all data with less than 10 in the last column and the other for 10 or higher value in the last column. After all the confidence intervals have been constructed, identify the variable(s) which are likely to influence absenteeism from work (i.e., identify the variables where the confidence intervals do not overlap). Here Observation of absenteeism for less than 10 hour=63 Observation of absenteeism for more than 10 hour=677 At 90% confidence interval z=1.645 For Transportation expenses Less than 10 Mean= 221.3161 Standard deviation=66.7899 Confidence Interval = 221.3161 ± 1.645 66.7899 677 =( 225.5387,217.0935 ) More than 10

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
