Confidence Interval Calculator

Confidence Interval for the population means when the standard deviation is known.

Confidence level, usually written as (1-\alpha)100%, on the interval estimate of a population parameter is the probability that the interval estimate will contain the true population parameter.  When /apha=0.05,95% is the confidence level and 0.95 is the probability that the interval estimate will have the population parameter.
