Make sure the data is sorted by category (e.g.male-at-rest, female at-rest, etc.)

Use the Data Analysis tools of Excel to construct 95% and 99% confidence intervals for all of the sorted quantitative variable. Please note that the statistic being used in the confidence interval of the means, which requires the use of the Standard Error of the mean (not the standard deviation).

Create a Word document, and use your calculated results to describe the expected value and range for each of the variables.
