Calculate and interpret the following confidence intervals

1) 95% CI for the average daily exercise time of males
2) 99% CI for the average daily exercise time of females

Data (in minutes):

calculate and interpret the following confidence intervals
1) 95% CI for the average daily exercise time of males
With 95% confidence level, α=0.05, and the corresponding critical value, or z-score isz_(α/2)=1.96
So (X ̅-1.96 s/√15,X ̅+1.96 s/√15)= (40.87-1.96 ...
