From the information, observe that the level of confidence is 0.95
The sample size is, n=64
The sample standard deviation is, s=2.2
The degrees of freedom is,
\(df=n-1\)
\(=64-1\)
\(=63\)
The level of significance is,
Level of significance=1- Level of confidence
\(=1-0.95\)
\(=0.95\)
From the standard t table values, observe that the critical value of t for the two tail test at the 5% level of significance and 63 degrees of freedom is 1.998
Using these value, observe that the t critical value as observing 0.05 in two tail at column wise and 63 degrees of freedom in row wise and identify the critical value (1.998) corresponding to the level of significance (0.05) and 63 degrees of freedom.
The calculation of the margin of error is,
\(ME=\frac{t_{a/2}\times s}{\sqrt{64}}\)
\(=\frac{(1.998)(2.2)}{8}\)
\(=\frac{4.396}{8}\)
\(=0.549\)
The calculated value of the margin of error is 0.549

A poll asked the question, "What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?" Twenty-five percent of the respondents answered "crime and violence." The margin of sampling error was plus or minus 3 percentage points. Following the convention that the margin of error is based on a \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval, find a \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval for the percentage of the population that would respond "crime and violence" to the question asked by the pollsters.

When two targets are presented close together in a rapid visual stream, the second target is often missed. Psychologists call this phenomenon the attentional blink (AB). A study published in Advances in Cognitive Psychology (July 2013) investigated whether simultaneous or preceding sounds could reduce AB. Twenty subjects were presented a rapid visual stream of symbols and letters on a computer screen and asked to identify the first and second letters (the targets). After several trials, the subject's AB magnitude was measured as the difference between the percentages of first target and second target letters correctly identified. Each subject performed the task under each of three conditions. In the Simultaneous condition, a sound (tone) was presented simultaneously with the second target; in the Alert condition, a sound was presented prior to the coming of the second target; and in the No-Tone condition, no sound was presented with the second target. Scatterplots of AB magnitude for each possible pair of conditions are shown below as well as the least squares line for each. a. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the steepest estimated slope? b. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the largest SSE? c. Which pair of conditions produces the least squares line with the smallest estímate of σ?
