Question: The cheetah Acinonyx jubatus is the fastest land mammal and

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is the fastest land mammal and is highly specialized to run down prey. The cheetah often exceeds speeds of 60 mph and, according to the online document "Cheetah Conservation in Southern Africa" (Trade & Environment Database (TED) Case Studies, Vol. 8, No. 2) by J. Urbaniak, the cheetah is capable of speeds up to 72 mph. The WeissStats CD contains the top speeds, in miles per hour, for a sample of 35 cheetahs. Use the technology of your choice to do the following tasks.
a. Find a 95% confidence interval for the mean top speed, μ, of all cheetahs. Assume that the population standard deviation of top speeds is 3.2 mph.
b. Obtain a normal probability plot, boxplot, histogram, and stem-and-leaf diagram of the data.
c. Remove the outliers (if any) from the data, and then repeat part (a).
d. Comment on the advisability of using the z-interval procedure on these data.
