7.3.29-1| Question Help A student wants to estimate the mean score of all college students for a particular exam. First use the range rule of thumb to make a rough estimate of the standard deviation of those scores. Possible scores range from 200 to 1000. Use technology and the estimated standard deviation to determine the sample size corresponding to a 95% confidence level and a margin of error of 100 points. What isn't quite right with this exercise? The range rule of thumb estimate for the standard deviation is N (Type an integer or a fraction.)
