Step-by-step explanation:

We want to determine a 95% confidence interval for the average time spent by male runners in a week in preparing for races.

Number of sample, n = 28

Mean, u = 22 hours

Standard deviation, s = 2 hours

For a confidence level of 95%, the corresponding z value is 1.96. This is determined from the normal distribution table.

We will apply the formula

Confidence interval

= mean ± z * standard deviation/√n

It becomes

22 ± 1.96 * 2/√28

= 22 ± 1.96 * 0.378

= 22 ± 0.741

The lower end of the confidence interval is 22 - 0.741 = 21.259

The upper end of the confidence interval is 22 + 0.741 = 22.741
