Damaris Santana-Morant STA 6934 Problem 6.21(a) (i) Figure 1 (left) shows that σ = .7 with acceptance rate .73. (ii) Figure 1 (right) shows that σ = 5.9. with mean squared error .89. Simulations using values of σ greater than 6 showed sometimes smaller mean squared error, but still with fluctuations. The R code used is shown below. Figure 1 σ versus acceptance rate (left) and σ versus mean squared error (right)

### 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.
