StatisticsQ&A LibraryForbes magazine published data on the best small firms in 2012. These were firms that had been publicly traded for at least a year, have a stockprice of at least $5 per share, and have reported annual revenue between $5 million and $1 billion. The table below shows the ages of the corporateCEOS for a random sample of these firms.48 58 5161565974635350596060574663 57554755574361624967 55675549Use this sample data to construct a 90% confidence interval for the mean age of CEO's for these top small firms.

Step 1

The formula for 90% confidence interval for the mean age of CEO’s is given as

Step 2

The sample mean and standard deviation can be obtained using Excel:

- Enter the data into Excel file.
- Enter “= AVERAGE (A1:A30)” to get the sample mean as
**56.56** - Enter “=STDEV.S (A1:A30)” to get the sample variance as
**6. 90.**

Step 3

The degrees of freedom corresponding to *t *distribution is *n *– 1.

That is, the degrees of freedom is, 29 (=30&ndas...
