# Question: In each part of this problem we have provided a

In each part of this problem, we have provided a scenario for a confidence interval. Decide whether the appropriate method for obtaining the confidence interval is the z-interval procedure, the t-interval procedure, or neither.
a. A random sample of size 17 is taken from a population. A normal probability plot of the sample data is found to be very close to linear (straight line). The population standard deviation is unknown.
b. A random sample of size 50 is taken from a population. A normal probability plot of the sample data is found to be roughly linear. The population standard deviation is known.
c. A random sample of size 25 is taken from a population. A normal probability plot of the sample data shows three outliers but is otherwise roughly linear. Checking reveals that the outliers are due to recording errors. The population standard deviation is known.
d. A random sample of size 20 is taken from a population. A normal probability plot of the sample data shows three outliers but is otherwise roughly linear. Removal of the outliers is questionable. The population standard deviation is unknown.
e. A random sample of size 128 is taken from a population.
A normal probability plot of the sample data shows no outliers but has significant curvature. The population standard deviation is known.
f. A random sample of size 13 is taken from a population. A normal probability plot of the sample data shows no outliers but has significant curvature. The population standard deviation is unknown.
