Researchers want to estimate with 95% confidence the true mean pulse rate of American adult males who jog at least 15 miles per week. They survey 21 males and find the sample mean pulse rate to be 52.6 beats per minute and a standard deviation of 3.22 beats per minute. Find the margin of error for the mean pulse rate of all American adult males who jog at least 15 miles per week. Round to the nearest tenth.

The operations manager of a large production plant wants to estimate the mean amount of time a worker takes to assemble a new electric component. Assume the standard deviation of the assembly time is 3.6 minutes. After observing 120 workers, the manager found their mean assembly time to be 16.2 minutes. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the estimate of the mean assembly time. Round to the nearest hundredth.
