A snack food manufacturer selected a sample of 15 bags of pretzels off the assembly line and weighed their contents. If the sample mean is 10.0 and the sample standard deviation is 0.15, find the 95% confidence interval estimate for the true mean weight of bags of this type of pretzel.

A.(9.92, 12.34)
B.(8.54, 11.46)
C.(10.42, 10.58)
D.(9.92, 10.08).

Solution:

sample size=n=15
sample mean=10
sample std deviation=0.15
We assume that population is normal or approximately normal
Sample size is less than 30 and population standard ...
