Suppose that 14 children, who were learning to ride two-wheel bikes, were surveyed to determine how long they had to use training wheels. It was revealed that they used them an average of six months with a sample standard deviation of three months. Assume that the underlying population distribution is normal.

Construct a 99% confidence interval for the population mean length of time using training wheels.

What is the lower bound? (Round to 3 decimal places)

What is the upper bound? (Round to 3 decimal places)

Step 1

Given information is below,

Sample size (n) = 14,

Mean (μ) = 6 months,

Population standard deviation (σ) = 3 months.

Step 2

Formula for confidence interval for population mean is,

Step 3
