What does 80% confidence mean in a 80% confidence interval?
Besides, what is the 80% confidence interval?

|Confidence Level||z*– value|
Also, how do you find 80 confidence interval? Because you want a 95% confidence interval, your z*-value is 1.96. (The lower end of the interval is 7.5 – 0.45 = 7.05 inches; the upper end is 7.5 + 0.45 = 7.95 inches.)

Also asked, what does a 95% confidence interval mean?
The 95% confidence interval defines a range of values that you can be 95% certain contains the population mean. With large samples, you know that mean with much more precision than you do with a small sample, so the confidence interval is quite narrow when computed from a large sample.
Why is 80 confidence interval narrower than 95?
Apparently a narrow confidence interval implies that there is a smaller chance of obtaining an observation within that interval, therefore, our accuracy is higher. Also a 95% confidence interval is narrower than a 99% confidence interval which is wider. The 99% confidence interval is more accurate than the 95%.
