    Scenario: A study of 35 golfers showed that their average score on a particular course was 92. The standard deviation of the sample is 5.

    Solve the following questions:
    Find the best point estimate of the mean.
    Find the 95% confidence interval of the mean score for all golfers.
    Find the 95% confidence interval of the mean score if a sample of 60 golfers is used instead of a sample of 35.
