Step 1 Data values are given population standard deviation is not known hence we use T Interval. Sample size \(\displaystyle{\left({n}\right)}={5}\) Degrees of freedom(df): \(\displaystyle{d}{f}={n}-{1}\)
\(\displaystyle={5}-{1}\)
\(\displaystyle={4}\) Confidence level =0.90 Use T table or excel command =T.INV.2T \(\displaystyle{\left({1}-{0.90},{4}\right)}\) to get critical value Critical value \(\displaystyle{\left({t}_{{{c}}}\right)}={2.132}\) \(\displaystyle{b}{e}{g}\in{\left\lbrace{a}{r}{r}{a}{y}\right\rbrace}{\left\lbrace{\left|{c}\right|}{c}{\mid}\right\rbrace}{h}{l}\in{e}&{X}&{\left({X}−{12.54}\right)}^{{{2}}}\backslash{h}{l}\in{e}&{12.6}&{0.0036}\backslash{h}{l}\in{e}&{11.9}&{0.4096}\backslash{h}{l}\in{e}&{13}&{0.2116}\backslash{h}{l}\in{e}&{12.7}&{0.0256}\backslash{h}{l}\in{e}&{12.5}&{0.0016}\backslash{h}{l}\in{e}{T}{o}{t}{a}{l}&{62.7}&{0.652}\backslash{h}{l}\in{e}{e}{n}{d}{\left\lbrace{a}{r}{r}{a}{y}\right\rbrace}\) Sample mean: \(\displaystyle\overline{{{x}}}={\frac{{{\sum_{{{i}={1}}}^{{5}}}\xi}}{{{n}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{{62.7}}}{{{5}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{12.54}\) Sample standard deviation: \(\displaystyle{s}=\sqrt{{{\frac{{{\sum_{{{i}={1}}}^{{5}}}{\left({x}_{{{i}}}-\overline{{{x}}}\right)}^{{{2}}}}}{{{n}-{1}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{\frac{{{\sum_{{{i}={1}}}^{{5}}}{\left({x}_{{{i}}}-{12.54}\right)}^{{{2}}}}}{{{5}-{1}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{\frac{{{0.652}}}{{{4}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{0.163}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={0.403733}\) Step 3 \(\displaystyle=\overline{{{x}}}\pm{t}_{{{c}}}{\frac{{{s}}}{{\sqrt{{{n}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={12.54}\pm{2.132}\times{\frac{{{0.403733}}}{{\sqrt{{{5}}}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={12.54}\pm{2.132}\times{0.180555}\)
\(\displaystyle={12.54}\pm{0.3849}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left({12.54}-{0.3849},{12.54}+{0.3849}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={\left({12.1551},{12.9249}\right)}\) Step 4 Answer: 90% confidence interval is ( 12.16, 12.92 )

A poll in 2017 reported that 699 out of 1027 adults in a certain country believe that marijuana should be legalized. When this poll about the subject was first conducted in 1969, only 12% of rhe country supported legalizztion. Assume the conditions for using the CLT are met.
a) Find and interpet a 99% confidence interval for the proportion of adults in the country 2017 that believe marijuana should be legalized is (0.643, 0.718)
b) Find and interpret a 90%confidence interval for this population parameter. The 90% confidence interval for the proportion of adults in the country 2017 that believe marijuana should be legalized is (0.657, 0.705)
c)Find the margin of error for each of the confidence intervals found The margin of error of the 99% confidence interval is 0.039 and the margin of error of the 90% confidence interval is 0.025

1. A researcher is interested in finding a 98% confidence interval for the mean number of times per day that college students text. The study included 144 students who averaged 44.7 texts per day. The standard deviation was 16.5 texts. a. To compute the confidence interval use a ? z t distribution. b. With 98% confidence the population mean number of texts per day is between and texts. c. If many groups of 144 randomly selected members are studied, then a different confidence interval would be produced from each group. About percent of these confidence intervals will contain the true population number of texts per day and about percent will not contain the true population mean number of texts per day. 2.
