Stat 312: Lecture 5 Confidence Intervals Moo K. Chung [email protected] February 3, 2003 Concepts 1. For population parameter θ , 95 % confidence inter- val ( ˆ θ L , ˆ θ U ) of θ is computed by solving P ( ˆ θ L θ ˆ θ U ) = 0 . 95 2. Let X i N ( μ, σ 2 ) with known σ 2 and unknown μ . 95 % confidence interval for μ is ˆ μ L = ¯ x - 1 . 96 · σ/ n, ˆ μ U = ¯ x + 1 . 96 · σ/ n. 3. Let X i N ( μ, σ 2 ) with known σ 2 and unknown μ . 100(1 - α )% confidence interval for μ is. ˆ μ L = ¯ x - z α/ 2 · σ/ n, ˆ μ U = ¯ x + z α/ 2 · σ/ n. In-class problems Continuing Exercise 6.25. Assuming σ = 18 . 86 , find 95% confidence interval of μ . > b<-qnorm(0.975,0,sigma/sqrt(10)) > a<-qnorm(0.025,0,sigma/sqrt(10)) > b [1] 11.68933 > a [1] -11.68933 > mean(X)-b [1] 372.7107 > mean(X)-a [1] 396.0893 > qnorm(0.995) [1] 2.575829 > qnorm(0.99) [1] 2.326348 > qnorm(0.975) [1] 1.959964 > qnorm(0.95) [1] 1.644854 Self-study problems Example 7.2.,7.3.,7.4.,7.5.
