# A travel agent is interested in the average price of a hotel room during the summer in a resort community

A travel agent is interested in the average price of a hotel room during the summer in a resort community. The agent randomly selects 18 hotels from the community and determines the price of a regular room with a king size bed. The average price of the room for the sample was $150 with a standard deviation of $40. Assume the prices are normally distributed. Construct an interval to estimate the true average price of a regular room with a king size bed in the resort community with 99% confidence. Round the endpoints to two decimal places, if necessary.
