Handout (Chapter 6.3. BRING Tables 3 and 4. 6.3. The Sampling Distribution of the sample mean ( σ unknown) 1. In samples of size n, we often estimate both the mean and the standard deviation using X and S. 2. Standardized sample mean based on sample estimate of standard deviation, S. T = n S X / μ - 3. If the X i are normally distributed then T has “t distribution with ν =n-1 degrees of freedom (df). 4.Using the tables t α for d.f.=1,2…. .29, : Table 4 t ,= Value of T that is exceeded with probability .. For v 30 t , 2245 z . 5 The t v distribution is symmetric about 0. So P(t v < -t α ) = P(t v > t α ) = α and P(t

Find c such that P(-c < t 2 <c )= 0.95. 7. P( X > + 3s) for n=4 and 16. 8. A random sample is taken of the diameters of 4 bolts coming off an assembly line. The sample mean equals 13 mm and the sample estimate of the standard deviation is calculated at 2mm. What is the probability of a sample mean with an error this large when in fact the process is in control and =10?...
