Population Statistics Population Statistics: μ σ , usually unknown Using Sample Statistics to estimate population statistics: Point estimates Confidence interval 2 ˆ d R = σ k x x = = μ ˆ 4 ˆ c s = σ
Confidence Interval Wrong Meaning: Probability within the confidence interval is ..% True meaning: The interval will contain the population statistics ..% times

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
