A (1 − α )100% Con f dence Interval for μ is X ± z α 2 σ √ n . • — σ 2 is unknown — small sample size ( n 6 30) — population is normal A (1 − α )100% Con f dence Interval for μ is X ± t n − 1 , α 2 s √ n , where X the point estimator of μ z α 2 it corresponds to an area of 1 − α 2 from the center of a standardized normal distribution t n − 1 , α 2 it corresponds to an area of 1 − α 2 from the center of a t distribution,with n − 1 degree(s) of freedom (d.f.) 1 − α Con f dence Coe ffi cient - measures the level of con f dence (the probability) that the C.I. will enclose the parameter we estimate....
