In each of Problems, we have provided a scenario for a confidence interval. Decide, in each case, whether the appropriate method for obtaining the confidence interval is the z-interval procedure, the t-interval procedure, or neither. A random sample of size 128 is taken from a population. A normal probability plot of the sample data shows no outliers but has significant curvature. The population standard deviation is known.

Question

In each of Problems, we have provided a scenario for a confidence interval. Decide, in each case, whether the appropriate method for obtaining the confidence interval is the z-interval procedure, the t-interval procedure, or neither.

A random sample of size 128 is taken from a population. A normal probability plot of the sample data shows no outliers but has significant curvature. The population standard deviation is known.
