Please show the formula and step used to solve these two problems.

3. A random sample of 10 parking meters in downtown Nashville showed the following incomes for a day.

$2.60, $1.05, $2.45, $2.90, $1.30, $3.10, $2.35, $2.00, $2.40, $2.35

Find the 95% confidence interval of the true mean.

6. Out of 250 people surveyed, 112 of them are against paddling as a punishment in school. Give a 90% confidence interval for the true proportion of people who are against paddling in school.

Please see the attachments.

The 95% confidence interval is given by , where = 2.25, = 0.645927413, n = 10, = 2.262157158
Therefore the required CI is given by,

= (1.79, 2.71)
Thus with 95% confidence we can claim that population mean income for a day is within ($1.79, $2.71).
