Margin of Error Let's say we are testing Laptop Batteries X= Length of Laptop use in hours on one complete charge n= 36 36 144batterie Sample MeanXbar= 4.68 4.68 4.68hours SDEV=Sigma= 0.37 0.37 0.37hours Confidence Coeff 0.900 0.95 0.9595% de Z alpha/2= 1.645 1.96 1.96 Std. Error=SD/Sqrt(n)= 0.06 0.06 0.03 Margin of Error= 0.10 0.12 0.06 Confidence Limits: Upper(UCL)= 4.78 4.80 Lower(LCL)= 4.58 4.56 Interval Width UCL-LCL= 0.242 MOE*2= Interpretation: with 95% degree of confidence, we conclude the True Population mean life falls between 4.56 and 4.80 hrs Effects of Sample Size: As "n" increases, margin of error dec and Limits would move Effects of Confidence Coefficient on Margin of Error?
