Question 185 out of 5 pointsThe symbol s is a _____ letter that describes a _____ statistic.Selected Answer:Latin; sampleAnswers:Latin; sampleGreek; sampleLatin; populationGreek; populationQuestion 190 out of 5 pointsWhat is the correct formula for calculating the standard deviation of a sample when one is NOT trying to estimate the population standard deviation?Selected Answer:Answers:Question 205 out of 5 pointsWhy does one divide by N – 1 rather than by N when estimating a population standard deviation from the sample standard deviation?Selected Answer:Because the sample standard deviation is likely to be an imprecise estimate, we allow the error of the estimate (the standard deviation) to be larger by dividing the sum of squares by a smaller number.Answers:Because the sample standard deviation is likely to be an imprecise estimate, we allow the error of the estimate (the standard deviation) to be larger by dividing the sum of squares by a smaller number.The sample standard deviation is a superior estimate of the variability in the population than is the population standard deviation.We typically have to throw out at least one data point in any given study, so the N – 1 allows us to account for that.Because the population is always smaller than the sample, we must divide by a smaller number.Question 1
5 out of 5 pointsAssume the following for a paired-samples t test: N = 9, Mdifference = 13.19, s = 22.3.
