Step 1

The critical value for 98% confidence interval with 7 degrees of freedom:

The confidence level for the first confidence interval is 98%. That is level of significance is 1–0.98 = 0.02. Therefore, α=0.02 and α / 2=0.01. Here, the degree of freedom is 7.

For the t-test of 98% confidence interval, the critical value is,

Step 2

From the t-table:

• Locate the value 7 in the column of degrees of freedom.
• Locate 0.02 in level of significance of two tailed.
• The intersecting value that corresponds to the degrees of freedom 7 with level of significance 0.02 is 2.998.
Step 3

The critical value for 90% confidence interval with 112 degrees of freedom:

The confidence level for the first confidence interval is 90%. That is level of significance is 1–0.90 = 0.10. Th...
