2 Sec 6.1: What is a Sampling Distribution? Sampling Error The error results from using a sample instead of censusing the population to estimate a population quantity. Sampling Distributions The sample statistics vary from one sample to another. Therefore, there is a distribution function associated with each sampling statistic. This is called the sampling distribution.
3 Example 6.1: The three most popular numbers which were picked up by a group of students are 7, 17, and 24. Assume that the population mean and standard deviation are 16 and 8, respectively. (a). List all the possible samples of two numbers that can be obtained from this three numbers. (b). Find the sample mean for each sample. (c). Compute the sample error for each sample. (Solutions in the note page)

4 Example 6.2 (Basic) The population of average points per game (ppg) for the top five players of Orlando Magic is presented in the following table. (First eight games in 1996 playoff) Player ppg O'Neal(O) 25.3 Anderson(A) 16.4 Grant(G) 16.9 Hardaway(H) 22.3 Scott(S) 13.4 (a) Find the sampling distribution of the mean of the "ppg" of three players from the population of five players. (Part (a) solution is in note page)
5 Example 6.2 Continue: (b) Compute the mean and standard deviation of the sample mean. <Solution to part (b)>: Note: If you forget how to do it, you need to review Chapter 4.

### 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.
