The mean income of males in 14 randomly selected states of the United States were calculated, resulting in a mean of

`$48,294.70`

and a standard deviation of 8017.49. In addition, the mean income of females from 14 randomly selected states in the United States (not necessarily the same states as for the males) were calculated, resulting in a mean of

`$37,219.07`

and a standard deviation of

`$4807.35`

. A student computed a

`95%`

confidence interval for the difference in incomes between males and females in the U.S. Their result was (5884.1, 16267). In the box below do two things: State the point estimate and the margin of error.
