Also, assume the sampling distribution of the sample mean )7 is close to normal. If (5 is known, then for some positive constant 2*, the confidence interval for p is A7 i 2* i. l y; However, it is often the case that o is unknown, so we will focus on this situation. When 6 is unknown, then for some positive constant t*, the confidence interval for p is L _ . 5 ' ’ X i t —— , " \//7 where t* refers to the t-curve. For X1, X2, ..., Xn independent observations from a normal population with mean u and standard deviation 0', the one-sample standardized t-statistic, X—u S/n' has a so—called t—distribution with n — 1 degrees of freedom (df). The degrees of freedom are used to identify the particular t-distribution. - 7': Each t-curve shares the following properties of the standard normal curve: 0 a The curve is bell—shaped and symmetric around 0. o The curve extends indefinitely in both directions, always above the horizontal axis, approaching but never touching the axis. 0 The total area under the curve is 1.
