An admissions director wants to estimate the mean age of all students enrolled at a college. The estimate must be within 1 year of the population mean. Assume the population of ages is normally distributed.

(b) Repeat part (a) using a 99% confidence interval.
(c) Which level of confidence requires a larger sample size? Explain. |
