answers, and use two decimal places for the mean, standard deviation, and
standard error of the mean.
(b) Enter the null hypothesis and the research hypothesis for these data on
your spreadsheet.
(c) Use Excel’s TINV function to find the 95 % confidence interval about the
mean for these data. Label your answers on your spreadsheet. Use two
decimal places for the lower limit and the upper limit of the confidence
