Hypothesis testing and confidence interval

Exercise 8.5
Find a confidence interval for u assuming that each sample is from a normal population.
a. x = 14, sigma = 4, n = 5, 90 percent confidence
b. x = 37, sigma = 15, 99 percent confidence
c. x = 121, sigma = 15, 95 percent confidence

Exercise 9.19
Calculate the test statistic and p-value for each sample.
a. H0 = u = 60 versus H1: u does not equal 60, sigma = 0.025, x = 63, sigma = 8, n = 16
b. H0: u is greater than or equal to 60 versus H1: u < 60, sigma = 0.05, x = 58, sigma = 5, n = 25
c. H0: u is less than or equal to H1: u > 60, sigma = 0.05, x = 65, sigma = 8, n =36
