Then, parameterize the confidence coefficient by letting the user of your function choose their own confidence level, but keep 95 percent as the default. Hint: the first line will look like this:
conf.int <- function(data.vector, conf.coeff=.95){ 
  • Back when we introduced the central limit theorem, I said that the sampling distribution from any distribution would be approximately normal. Don't take my word for it! Create a population that is uniformly distributed ...
