(a)Step 1
A.95% confidence interval for the mean number of hours it takes for the student to makes course of objectives is, First, compute f-critical value then find confidence interval.
The t critical value for the 95% confidence interval is,
α=0.05
The sample size is small and two-tailed test. Look in the column headed and the row headed in the fdistribution table by using degree of freedom is,
d.f.=n-1
=45-1=44
The tcritical value for the 95% confidence interval is 2.015.
Step 2
95%C.I.=x±tc×s/n
=80.50±2.015×51.20/45
=80.50±15.38
= 65.12 to 95.88
65.12 to 95.884 95% confidence interval for the mean number of hours it takes for the student to makes course of objectives is.
