A 95% confidence interval for a population mean is (100, 200). A 90% confidence interval would be Narrower
The correlation coefficient ranges between -1 and +1
For a confidence interval for the mean when sigma is known, the proper distribution to use isTh

The ANOVA procedure is a statistical approach
for determining whether or not
the means of two or more populations are equal
an ANOVA procedure is used for data that was
obtained from four sample groups each
comprised of five observations. The degrees of
