The alternating current (AC) breakdown voltage of an insulating liquid indicates its dielectric strength. The article **“Testing Practices for the AC Breakdown Voltage Testing of Insulation Liquids” ( IEEE Electrical insulation Magazine, 1995: 21–26)** gave the accompanying sample observations on breakdown voltage (kV) of a particular circuit under certain conditions.

**a.**Construct a boxplot of the data and comment on interesting features.**b.**Calculate and interpret a 95% CI for true average breakdown voltage*μ*. Does it appear that*μ*has been precisely estimated? Explain.**c.**Suppose the investigator believes that virtually all values of breakdown voltage are between 40 and 70. What sample size would be appropriate for the 95% CI to have a width of 2 kV (so that*μ*is estimated to within 1 kV with 95% confidence)?
