A. Determine a 90% confidence Interval for the mean pay per an hour,u?, of this firm's consulting jobs.
<br>
<br>We calculate the sample mean M= 26.3
<br>N = 30, then degree of freedom = 30-1=29
<br>Standard Deviation = 10.655 (use "=STDEV" function in EXCEL)
<br>Standard Error = SD/SQRT(N) = 10.655/ SQRT(30) =1.945
<br>From ...
