1. What are the z-values for a 90th-percentile confidence interval?
b) ±1.645 c) ±1.960 d) ±2.000

2. Calculate the 95th-percentile CI given a sample mean of 110 cm, sample size of 50 and SD of 25.0 cm. a) 85.0 < m < cm b) 61.0 < m < cm c) < m < cm d) < m < cm

3. Determine the t-values for the 95th-percentile confidence interval (CI) given a sample size of n = 12? a) ±2.201 b) ±2.179 c) ±1.960 d) ±1.796

4. Calculate the 95th-percentile CI given a sample mean of 11
4. Calculate the 95th-percentile CI given a sample mean of s, sample size of 12 and SD of 2.00 s? a) 9.50 > m > s b) > m > s c) > m > s d) > m > s

5. The t-distribution approaches the shape of the standard normal (z) distribution _______?
