## Question 364:

A sample of 20 pages was taken without replacement from the 1,591-page phone directory Ameritech Pages Plus Yellow Pages. On each page, the mean area devoted to display ads was measured(a display ad is a large block of multicolored illustrations, maps, and text). The data (in square millimeters) are shown below:

0 260 356 403 536 0 268 369 428 536

268 396 469 536 162 338 403 536 536 130

(a) Construct a 95 percent confidence interval for the true mean. (b) Why might normality be an

issue here? (c) What sample size would be needed to obtain an error of ±10 square millimeters with 99 percent confidence? (d) If this is not a reasonable requirement, suggest one that is. I am new at this and it would help if you could give me the formula and break it down step by step so I can understand. Thanks
