A soccer ball manufacturer wants to estimate the mean circumference of soccer balls within 0.05 in. (a) Determine the minimum sample size required to construct a 90% confidence interval for the population mean. Assume the population standard deviation is 0.20 in. (b) Repeat part (a) using a population standard deviation of 0.40 in. Which standard deviation requires a larger sample size? Explain.

You are given the sample mean and the population standard deviation. Use this information to construct the 90% and 95% confidence intervals for the population mean. Interpret the results and compare the widths of the confidence intervals. If convenient, use technology to construct the confidence intervals.
