Over a period of about nine months, 1,353 women reported the timing of each of their menstrual cycles. For the first cycle reported by each woman, the mean cycle time was 28.86 days, and the standard deviation of the 1,353 times was 4.24 days (a) Construct a 92% confidence interval for the population mean cycle time. (b) Because environmental rhythms can influence biological rhythms, one might hypothesize that the population mean menstrual cycle time is 29.5 days, the length of the lunar month. Is the confidence interval of part (a) consistent with this hypothesis?
