sample= 200 bolts
mean dia = 0.455cm
6000 bolts/day
then I am asked to determine ex the 96% confidence limits and the 99% confidence limits for an estimate of the mean diameter of all bolts produced in one day.
If someone can give a brief explanation or some links on the matter, it would be really appreciated.
