The Warren County Telephone Company claims in its annual report that “the typical customer spends $60 per month on local and long distance service.” A sample of 12 subscribers revealed the following amounts spent last month.

$64 $66 $64 $66 $59 $62 $67 $61 $64 $58 $54 $66

a. What is the point estimate of the population mean?

b. Develop a 90 percent confidence interval for the population mean.

c. Is the company’s claim that the “typical customer” spends $60 per month reasonable?

Justify your answer using the confidence interval.

2. Relevant equations

Sample population? 12

Mean=$63

Confidence Interval 90%

3. The attempt at a solution

I know I can use megastats to solve this problem, I am just drawing a blank on which formula to use. WHen I click on Descriptive statistics, it comes back saying "not enough data selected". I tried Confidence Interval and I tried both:

Sample size-mean

sample size- p

I must be entering something wrong somewhere.

Can someone just tell me which formula to use? I am drawing a blank..

Thanks,

Emily
