    SAT vs ACT preference of seniors by state. SAT is blue and ACT is red.In this section we will learn to construct a confidence interval to estimate a population mean when conditions are met and interpret the confidence interval in context. We will then interpret the meaning of a confidence level associated with a confidence interval. This can be used with analyzing SAT scores and how they vary from state to state.
