# Thread: Confidence Intervals

1. ## Confidence Intervals

Hi,

I have the following question on which I need some help:

We are given 2 CIs for a population parameter (21.2;31.6) and (23.6;29.2), which have been calculated on one sample. Whithout having any additional information, can we indicate which of them is the 95% CI and 99% CI and why?

I'd appreciate your help on this point. Thank you in advance!

Best Regards!

The latter interval is contained within the eariler, hence the latter is that associated with the lower probabilty.
