minutes, respectively.
(a) Find the mean and standard deviation of the setting time.
Mr F says: You can't do part (a) ...?
(b) Find a 95% confidence interval for the mean setting time if the standard deviation
is known to be ¾ = 1:5 min: Assume a normal distribution . (c) Find a 95% confidence interval for for the mean setting time if the standard
deviation is unknown.
