5.1 Large-Sample Confidence Intervals Let X 1 ,…, X n be a large ( n > 30) random sample from a population with mean μ and standard deviation σ , so that is approximately normal. Then a level 100(1 – α )% confidence interval for μ is Where . When the value of σ is unknown, it can be replaced with the sample standard deviation s . X X α σ z X 2 / ± n σ σ X / =
