Interpret a confidence interval: A survey organization drew a simple random sample of 625 households from a city of 100,000 households. The sample mean number of people in the 625 households was 2.30, and a 95% confidence interval for the mean number of people in the 100,000 households was 2.16 < μ < 2.44. True or false, and explain:     c. The probability is 0.95 that the mean number of people in the 100,000 households is between 2.16 and 2.44.
