    Solutions:

    The width of a confidence interval is equal to twice the value of the margin of error. Explain your answer.

    General formula for confidence interval is given by
    Lower bound for confidence interval = Point estimate- Reliability factor*standard error
    Upper bound for confidence interval = Point estimate+ Reliability factor*standard error

    We know
    Margin of error (ME)=Reliability ...

    Solution Summary

    There are two short discussion type problems. Solution to first problem shows that width of confidence interval is twice the value of margin of error. The solution to second problem discusses about first step in hypothesis testing.
