I think I have solved it and it is as follows:

R =93000 + (1.96) 17000/3.4641061513775

R = 93000 + (1.96) (4907)

R = 93000 + 9618

R = 102,618

R = 93000 - (1.96) 17000/3.4641061513775

R = 93000 - (1.96) (4907)

R = 93000 - 9618

R = 83,382

So the range of salaries would be $83,382 ; $102,618 - Nov 12th 2007, 03:44 PMTKHunny
I like it. Do you still doubt?
