Question

The diameter of the Douglas fir tree is measured at a height of 1.37 meters.The following data represent the diameter in centimeters of a random sample of 12 Douglas firs in the western Washington Cascades.
(a) Obtain a point estimate for the mean and standard deviation diameter of a Douglas fir tree in the western Washington Cascades.
(b) Because the sample size is small,we must verify that the data come from a population that is normally distributed and that the data do not contain any outliers. The figures show the normal probability plot and boxplot. Are the conditions for constructing a confidence interval for the population mean diameter satisfied?
(c) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean diameter of a Douglas fir tree in the western Washington Cascades.
