Sample 95% Confidence Interval Problem


What is the 95% Confidence Interval of your sample of bowling scores with mean x̄=200 and standard deviation σ=10 and sample size n=100 ?
CI-Setup: x̄ ± z*σ/√(n)
Here, 200 ± 1.96 * 10/√(100)
200 ± 1.96 * 10/10
200 ± 1.96*1
Finally, the 95% Confidence Interval is [198 , 202]
