We should also point out that 95 % is an arbitrary level of confidence for our results. We could choose to be 80 % confident, or 90 % confident, or even 99 % confident in our results if we wanted to do that. But, in this book, we will always assume that we want to be 95 % confident of our results. That way, you will not have to guess on how confident you want to be in any of the problems in this book. We will always want to be 95 % confident of our results in this book. So how do we find the 95 % confidence interval about the mean for our data?

10) Fig. 10 Dialogue Box for Page Layout / Scale to Fit Commands 32 2 Random Number Generator Hit the down arrow to the right of 100 % once to reduce the size of the page to 95 % Now, note that the name, Jennifer, is still on a second page on your screen because her name is below the horizontal dotted line on your screen in Fig. 11 (the dotted lines tell you outline dimensions of the file if you printed it now). Fig. 11 Example of Scale Reduced to 95 % with “Jennifer” to be Printed on a Second Page So, you need to repeat the “scale change steps” by hitting the down arrow on the right once more to reduce the size of the worksheet to 90 % of its normal size.

Suppose that you wanted to find the mean, standard deviation, and standard error of the mean for the percent of iron in limonite (iron ore) samples. The hypothetical data appear in Fig. 17. Fig. 17 Worksheet Data for Chapter 1: Practice Problem #1 18 1 Sample Size, Mean, Standard Deviation, and Standard Error of the Mean (a) Use Excel to the right of the table to find the sample size, mean, standard deviation, and standard error of the mean for these data. Label your answers, and round off the mean, standard deviation, and standard error of the mean to two decimal places; use number format for these three figures.
