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 α ,= Value of T that is exceeded with probability α .. For v 30 t α , 2245 z α . 5 The t v distribution is symmetric about 0. So P(t v < -t α ) = P(t v > t α

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?...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
