Using the sample data, construct a 99% confidence interval for the population mean. b. Does the 99% confidence interval include the value suggested by the NCAA? Interpret this result. c. Suppose you decided to switch from a 99% to a 95% confidence interval. Without per-forming any calculations, will the interval increase, decrease, or stay the same? Which of the values in the formula will change?
