    Answer:

    b) The margin of error is approximately 3.24

    e) The critical value is 1.7921.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step(i):-

    Given sample size ‘n’ =20

    Given sample standard deviation ‘s’ = 10

    Margin of error

    The margin of error is determined by

    M.E = \frac{t_{\alpha } S.D }{\sqrt{n} }

    The level of significance ∝ =0.95

    The degrees of freedom = n-1 = 20-1=19

    t₀.₉₅ = 1.729

    M.E = \frac{1.729 X10 }{\sqrt{20} }

    Margin of error = 3.866

    Step(ii):-

    Margin of error

    The margin of error is determined by

    M.E = \frac{t_{\alpha } S.D }{\sqrt{n} }

    Given another sample size n =30

    The level of significance ∝ =0.95

    The degrees of freedom = n-1 = 30-1=29

    t₀.₉₅ = 1.70

    M.E = \frac{1.7021 X10 }{\sqrt{30} } =3.24

    Margin of error = 3.24
