7-9. Use the simple random sample of weights of women from a data set, we obtain these sample statistics:

N= 35

X = 141.38 lbs

Research from other sources suggest that the population of weights of women has a standard deviation given by o = 31.95 lb.

a. Find the best point estimate of the mean weight of all women. (The best point estimate is ___ lbs)

b. Find a 90% confidence interval estimate is ___ lb < u < ___ lb.

SEE ATTACHMENT X has a - line over it.
