Refer to the Current Allergy & Clinical Immunology (March 2004) study of n = 46 hospital employees who were diagnosed with a latex allergy from exposure to the powder on latex gloves, presented in Exercise. The number of latex gloves used per week by the sampled workers is summarized as follows: x = 19.3 and s = 11.9. Let m represent the mean number of latex gloves used per week by all hospital employees.
