AMS 572 Lecture Notes #2 Sept. 1 3 , 2010. Chapter 7: Inference on one population mean h 1. Motivation & simple random sample Eg) We wish to estimate the average height of adult US males Take a random sample. - “Simple” random sample: every subject in the population has the same chance to be selected. 2. Introduction to statistical inference on one population mean For a “ random sample” of size n: <i> Point estimatior sample mean () Other estimators: median, mode, trimmed mean, … <ii> Confidence Interval (C.I.) Eg) 95% C.I. for μ 99.9999% C.I. (‘6-9’ in the manufacture industry) <iii> Hypothesis Test Eg) : μ : μ 1

### 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.
