Question 1 of 20 1.0 PointsAccepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where "a" and "b" need to have explicitly stated values. For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. The personnel department of a large corporation wants to estimate the family dental expenses of its employees to determine the feasibility of providing a dental insurance plan. A random sample of 12 employees reveals the following family dental expenses (in dollars): 115, 370, 250, 593, 540, 225, 177, 425, 318, 182, 275, and 228. Construct a 95% confidence interval estimate for the standard deviation of family dental expenses for all employees of this corporation. Place your LOWER limit, in dollars rounded to 1 decimal place, in the first blank. Do not use a dollar sign, a comma, or any other stray mark. For example, 123.4 would be a legitimate entry. Place your UPPER limit, in dollars rounded to 1 decimal place, in the second blank. Do not use a dollar sign, a comma, or any other stray mark. For example, 567.8 would be a legitimate entry.
