The sample standard deviation measures the variability of sample scores, the standard
distance between a score and sample mean.
standard error measures the distance between a sample mean and the population mean.
a. n=10 / df = 1
According to the textbook, sampling with replacement helps to keep probabilities from changing
from one selection to the next, to avoid having bias.
a. Z= 0.25 & -0.25= .5987 + .5987 = 1.1974
b. Z= -0.67 & 0.67= .7486 + .7486 = 1.4972
c. Z= -1.20 &
2. Alpha level defines the boundaries that separate high/low probabilities. Critical region is
composed of extreme values, are very unlikely to occur if the null is true, if the sample data falls
in the critical region the null hypothesis is rejected.

When the distribution has sample less than 30, the larger n is, the sample mean gets closer to a
1031 0 0
No, because you need to square the standard deviation and this process eliminates negative
signs and the variance is the mean of the squared deviations.

Sampling error is when error occurs in selecting a sample of a population and you ended up
having a margin of error. In inferential statistics we are making generalizations in a population
and are only getting limited information from the population, n
