The situation is as follows: Smart phones have changed the world… The situation is as follows:Smart phones have changed the world and how we spend our time. A group of researchers at USU want to estimate the mean daily number of minutes that USU students spend on their phones. In fall 2019, they took a random sample of 430 USU students and found that on average, students spend 312 minutes on their phones with a standard deviation of 54 minutes per day. The plot of the sample data showed no extreme skewness or outliers. Calculate a 96% confidence interval estimate for the mean daily number of minutes that USU students spend on their phones in fall 2019. Do not round off in the intermediate steps, only the final answer should be rounded off to two decimal places.SHOW YOUR WORK IN ALL THE STEPS.

(1pt). Explain or justify your answer by recalculating, rounded to two decimal places (1pt). Do not round off in the intermediate steps, only the final answer should be rounded off to two decimal places.9.At a 90% level of confidence, what sample size would be needed to estimate the parameter of interest to within a margin of error of 10 minutes? Use s = 56 minutes. (2pts)10.Suppose that a second random sample of USU students was conducted in fall 2019. Using this data, the 96% confidence interval was calculated to be (310.92, 317.58). Rounded to two decimal places, what is the margin of error for this confidence interval? Show your work. (1pt)MathStatistics and Probability STAT MISC
