Calculate the lower bound of your 2SD confidence interval using the MOE from the previous question. Round to 2 decimal places.

Calculate the upper bound of a 2SD CI using the MOE from the first question. Round to 2 decimal places.

Could the theory based approach be used to calculate a CI for this data?

Without recalculating the CI, if the sample size were smaller than n = 286, would the width of the CI become wider, narrower, or remain the same?

Without recalculating and using the original sample size of n = 286, if the confidence level were increased from 95% to 99.9%, would the width of the interval become wider, narrower, or remain the same?
