Question

Using the sample results in Exercise 10.49, construct and interpret the 95% confidence interval for the population mean. Is the hypothesized population mean ($640,000) within the interval? Given the presence or absence of the $640,000 value within the interval, is this consistent with the findings of the hypothesis test conducted in Exercise 10.49?
In exercise
According to the Federal Reserve Board, the mean net worth of U.S. households headed by persons 75 years or older is $640,000. Suppose a simple random sample of 50 households in this age group is obtained from a certain region of the United States and is found to have a mean net worth of $615,000, with a standard deviation of $120,000. From these sample results, and using the 0.05 level of significance in a two-tail test, comment on whether the mean net worth for all the region’s households in this age category might not be the same as the mean value reported for their counterparts across the nation.
