A tennis enthusiast wants to estimate the mean length of men€™s singles matches held during the Wimbledon tennis tournament. From the Wimbledon history archives, he randomly selects 40 matches played during the tournament since the year 1968 (when professional players were ï¬rst allowed to participate).The lengths of the 40 selected matches, in minutes, follow:

(a) Obtain a point estimate of the population mean length of

men€™s singles matches during Wimbledon.

(b) A frequency histogram of the data is shown next. Explain

why a large sample is necessary to construct a conï¬dence

interval for the population mean length of men€™s singles

matches during Wimbledon.

Match Lengths (minutes)Wimbledon Match Lengths

(c) Construct and interpret a 90% conï¬dence interval for the population mean length of men€™s singles matches during Wimbledon.

(d) Construct and interpret a 95% conï¬dence interval for the population mean length of men€™s singles matches during Wimbledon.

(e) What effect does increasing the level of conï¬dence have on the interval?

(f) Do the conï¬dence intervals computed in parts (c) and (d) represent an estimate for the population mean length of men€™s singles matches during all professional tennis tournaments?Why?
