Expert Answer

Step 1

Here, it is given that the random sample of 12 smartphone batteries.

We can use the method of t distribution to construct a confidence interval about the mean, if the mean of the sampling distribution is normal and population standard deviation is unknown.

Here, the sampling distribution is approximately normal.

Step 2

Suppose the population distribution is normal, since the size of the sample is large.

Suppose, the population of standard deviation known, we use standard normal distribution.
