Develop a 99% confidence interval estimate of the population mean monthly rent. d. What happens to the width of the confidence interval as the confidence level is increased? Does this seem reasonable? Explain. Automobile Insurance Premiums. The average annual premium for automobile insurance in the United States is $1503.

For a sample of 400 individuals who filed a tax return between April 10 and 15 the sample mean refund was $910. Based on prior experience a population standard deviation of σ = $1600 may be assumed. What is the p-value? c. At what is your conclusion?𝛼=.05 d. Repeat the preceding hypothesis test using the critical value approach. Price of Good Red Wine.
