# Confidence interval for mean

Consider the following random sample of diameter measurements (in inches) of 18 softballs:

4.88, 4.88, 4.76, 4.82, 4.69, 4.75, 4.72, 4.86, 4.81, 4.75, 4.86, 4.73, 4.78, 4.72, 4.73, 4.78, 4.71, 4.87

If we assume that the diameter measurements are normally distributed, find a confidence interval for the mean diameter of a softball. Then complete the table below.

Carry your intermediate computations to at least three decimal places. Round your answers to two decimal places.
