And, you find the value of t in the table given in Appendix E of this book in the following way: Objective: To find the value of t in the t-table in Appendix E Before we get into an explanation of what is meant by ‘‘the value of t,’’ let’s give you practice in finding the value of t by using the t-table in Appendix E.

Your research study produces the results given in Fig. 1: Fig. ) for these data using the following cell references. 9 Enter the other mpg data in cells A7: A30. Now, highlight cells A6:A30 and format these numbers in number format (one decimal place). Center these numbers in Column A. Then, widen columns A and B by making both of them twice as wide as the original width of column A. Then, 44 3 Confidence Interval About the Mean Using the TINV Function widen column C so that it is three times as wide as the original width of column A so that your table looks more professional.
