Carla wants to determine if there is a difference in the mean body temperature between men and women. She knows that mean body temperature for a sample of 100 men is 97.1 with a population standard deviation of 0.51 and the mean body temperature for a sample of 100 women is 98.2 with a population standard deviation of 0.57. Assuming the population of body temperatures for men and women is normally distributed, calculate the 95% confidence interval and the margin of error for the mean body temperature for both men and women. Using complete sentences, explain what these confidence intervals

    Well in all honesty I've always been confused about Margin of error... I know a little about the confidence interval, but I'm probably not 100% keen on that either.
