Step 1
Obtain the critical value of t using the student's t distribution to find tc for a 0.95 confidence level when the sample is 24.
The critical value of t is obtained below:
From the information, given that n=24.
Obtain the degrees of freedom.
The degrees of freedom is obtained below:
df=n1
=241
=23
Here, confidence level is 0.95.
For (1α)=0.95
α=0.05
Step 2
Use EXCEL Procedure for finding the critical value of t.
Follow the instruction to obtain the critical value of t:
1.Open EXCEL
2.Go to Formula bar.
3.In formula bar enter the function as“=TINV”
4.Enter the probability as 0.05.
5.Enter the degrees of freedom as 23.
6.Click enter
EXCEL output:
From the EXCEL output, the critical value of t at the 0.95 confidence level with the 23 degrees of freedom is 2.069.
Thus, the critical value of t is 2.069.

A clinical trial was conducted to test the effectiveness of a drug for treating insomnia in older subjects. Before​ treatment, 13 subjects had a mean wake time of 101.0 min. After​ treatment, the 13 subjects had a mean wake time of 94.6 min and a standard deviation of 24.9 min. Assume that the 13 sample values appear to be from a normally distributed population and construct a 95% confidence interval estimate of the mean wake time for a population with drug treatments. What does the result suggest about the mean wake time of 101.0 min before the​ treatment? Does the drug appear to be​ effective?

In a science fair​ project, Emily conducted an experiment in which she tested professional touch therapists to see if they could sense her energy field. She flipped a coin to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, and then she asked the therapists to identify the selected hand by placing their hand just under​ Emily's hand without seeing it and without touching it. Among 358 ​trials, the touch therapists were correct 172 times. Complete parts​ (a) through​ (d).
a) Given that Emily used a coin toss to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, what proportion of correct responses would be expected if the touch therapists made random​ guesses? ​(Type an integer or a decimal. Do not​ round.)
b) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, what is the best point estimate of the​ therapists' success​ rate? ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.)
c) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, construct a 90% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of correct responses made by touch therapists.
