Review
Last day we talked about Confidence Intervals (CIs):
The idea behind CIs is to give some bounds on our sample
mean that we are confident (to some confidence level) will
capture the true population mean.
The population mean is a fixed number that we

Conditions for Inference about a Population Mean
Random: The data come from a random sample of size n from the
population of interest or a randomized experiment.
Normal: The population has a Normal distribution. I

We talked about the general types of variables, note that your
textbook covers other variables, but I wont test you on those.
Just be aware that there are other types of variables.
Categorical and Quantitative variables

The Lab
I hope everyone had fun in the lab yesterday! I am so impressed
with everyone! I will have a look at everyones answers and send
an email back if there was something I notice. The goal of the
assignment question is:
Figure out what the question is

The Lab
I was finally able to get the lab question working through Connect.
Some comments:
The question you get is randomly assigned out of a group of
10 possible questions. These 10 questions are listed at the end
of your lab.
It is a good idea to work t

Table of Random Digits
We have many dierent options for picking an SRS. The most
old-school but also my preferred way is to use a table of random
digits. (Table B) A table of random digits is a long string of the
digits 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 with these two
