“A confidence intervalis an interval estimate around a sample meanthat provides us with a range[within which] the true population mean lies”
“The purpose of generating a confidence interval is to provide an estimate for the value of the population mean”
Identify a businesssituation where you might want to make an estimate. For example, you might want to estimate the mean dollar amount spent by customers at a retail store.

How would you use that information in a proposal to upper management? How does the confidence level influence the decision?
