It is suspected that a supplier systematically underfills 5 l canisters of detergent. The filled volumes are assumed to be normally distributed. A small sample of $14$ canisters is measured exactly. This shows that the canisters contain on average $4957.4$ ml. The sample variance $s^2_{n-1}$ is equal to $1176.3$.
Determine a $95\%$ confidence interval for the average content of a canister (in ml).
The $95\%$ confidence interval for the average content $\mu$ in ml is given by: $\begin{aligned} & \left[\bar{y} \, - \, t_{n-1;0.975}\sqrt{\frac{s_{n-1}^2}{n}}, \; \bar{y} \, + \, t_{n-1;0.975}\sqrt{\frac{s_{n-1}^2}{n}}\right] \\ &= \left[ 4957.4 \, - \, 2.1604\sqrt{\frac{1176.3}{14}}, \; 4957.4 \, + \, 2.1604\sqrt{\frac{1176.3}{14}}\right] \\ &= \left[4937.597, \, 4977.203\right]. \end{aligned}$
