Question: Given the information in Exercise 13 62 and data file XR13062

Given the information in Exercise 13.62 and data file XR13062, determine the 98% confidence interval for the population variance of the cooked weights for hamburgers prepared using the consultant’s recommended cooking procedure.
In exercise
In past studies, a fast-food franchise has found the standard deviation of weights for quarter-pound hamburgers to be approximately 0.28 ounces after cooking. A consultant has suggested a new procedure for hamburger preparation and cooking that she believes will reduce the variability in the cooked weight of the hamburgers. In a test of the new method, 61 hamburgers are prepared, cooked, and weighed, with the resulting cooked weights listed in data file XR13062.
