What is the confidence interval for the population mean

mu μ?

Step 1

**Find the distribution that has to be used to construct the confidence interval in the given situation:**

The data represents the attractiveness rating of male subjects to their female dates.

The sample size is *n* = 12.

Assume that the population of attractiveness rating of male subjects to their female dates is normally distributed.

The required conditions for using *t *distribution to estimate the confidence interval about mean is given below:

- The population standard deviation σ must be unknown.
- Either the sample size (
*n*) must be greater than 30 or the population must be normally distributed.

Here, the population standard deviation is unknown.

Step 2

The population from which the sample is drawn is assumed to be normally distributed.

Thus, the *t*–distribution is used to construct the confidence interval for the population mean in the given situation.

The approximate 100*(1–α)% confidence interval for the population mean will be obtained using the formula given below:

Step 3

**Find the sample mean and standard deviation of attractiveness rating:**

*Excel procedure to find the mean and standard deviation of attractiveness rating:*

Step 1: Enter the values of attractiveness rating from A2:A13.

Step 2: Obtain the sample mean in c...
