    The overall miles per gallon (MPG) of 2009 Sedans priced under $20,000.
    27 31 30 28 27 24 29 32 32 27 26 26 25 26 25 24

    (a) Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate for the population mean MPG of 2009 Sedans (4 cylinder) priced under $20,000, assuming normal distribution.
    (b) Interpret the interval constructed in (a).
    (c) Compare the results in (a) to those in following problem:
