Or,
(B) The upper 95 percent confidence limit (UCL) of the true mean divided by 1.10, where:
and
(ii) Any represented value of the energy efficiency or other measure of energy consumption of a basic model for which consumers would favor higher values shall be less than or equal to the lower of:
(A) The mean of the sample, where:
Or,
(B) The lower 95 percent confidence limit (LCL) of the true mean divided by 0.90, where:
