Car A has a standard deviation of 5 miles per gallon while car B has a standard deviation of 3 miles per gallon. Which of the two car types is more consistent in fuel consumption?

10. A researcher is interested in studying people’s mean age in a certain region. If the population standard deviation is known to be 9 years and 2 year of error margin is allowed, find the minimum simple size the researcher needs to use, knowing that he is going to conduct his study using 90% confidence level
