    Hi

    containing a histogram. Provide and interpret a 95% confidence interval for the mean

    I'm guessing most folks are not willing to open an Excel attachment.

    Excel has sufficient Historgram functionality, including descriptive statistics. I don't know anyone who recommends Excel for serioud professional work, but it might be a good place to start.

    No, that is not an improvement.

    You should find the Histogram functionality in Excel. It may be hiding in a Data Analysis Tool Pack or some other such add-in. It is very easy to use. You just have to find it.
