Probability P(x) that a variable x will fall within x‟ ± δx is the area under curve Interval with probability P(x‟-σ≤ x ≤ x‟+ σ) = 68.27% P(x‟-2σ≤ x ≤ x‟+ 2σ) = 95.45% P(x‟-3σ≤ x ≤ x‟+ 3σ) = 99.73% P x ' x x x ' x p x   dx x ' x x ' x 4 October 2011 ENGR201 Lecture 3 Fall 2011 6 Back to original question from Lecture 2 We measure the diameter of 10 parts (sample) from a population in a crate and find the average, We want to know how well the average diameter of our small sample represents the true average diameter, x‟, of the entire crate! Estimate true value x‟ as: x ' x u x P % x ±μ x is the uncertainty interval in the estimate at some probability level
