Central limit theorem The Standard Normal Probability Distribution The standard normal distribution has mean of 0 and For a large sample size the sampling distribution ofis approximately normal irrespective of the xstandard deviation of 1 It is also called the z shape of the population distribution The mean and standard deviation of the sampling distribution of distributionareQQ and The sample size is usually considered to be large if 30un xWA zvalue or standard normal value is the distance xW xnbetween a selected value designed x and theMean of the Sample Meansdivided by the population population mean Q The mean of the distribution of the sample mean will be exactly equal to the population mean if we are QxWThe formula is standard deviationzQQable to select all possible samples of a particular size from a given population W xArea Under the Normal CurveStandard Error of the Mean Approximately 68 percent of the area under theIf the standard deviation of the population is W the standard deviation of the distribution of the normal curve is within one standard deviation of thesample mean is mean WQs Confidence Interval for a Population meanknown Properties of the student t distribution W It is like the normal distribution a continuous distributionThe level of confidence is symbolized by 1001vEIt is like the normal distribution bellshaped and symmetricalis the proportion in the tails of the distribution that where E There is not one t distribution but rather a family of t distributions is outside the confidence interval The proportion in the upperAll t distributions have a mean of 0 but their standard deviations differaccording to thesample size tail of the distribution is 2E and the proportion in the The t distribution is more spread out and flatter at the centre than the standard normal2E lower tail of the distribution is distribution As the sample size increases the t distribution approaches the normal 1 sample z interval distribution because the errors in usingto estimatedecrease with larger samplessW With 90 confidence we could say that the population mean Confidence Interval for a Population meanunknown W daily sales is between 379220 and 400700The Confidence Interval for a Population mean 1 sample t interval When C inc Range increases as wellDegree of freedomn 1What is a HypothesisConfidence Interval Estimation for the Proportion 1A hypothesis is a statement about a population is the sampleThe point estimate for the population proportion T2 In statistical analysis we make a claim that is state a hypothesis collect data andxproportionwhereis the sample size andis the nxthen use the data to test the claim p n3 In most cases the population is so large that it is not feasible to study all the itemsnumber of items in the sample having the characteristics of interest objects or persons in the population For example it would not be possible to contact population proportionTevery accountant in Canada to find out his or her annual income4 An alternative to measuring or interviewing the entire population is to take a sample z critical value from the standardized normal distributionfrom the population and test a statement to determine whether the sample does or samplesize n does not support the statement concerning the population and are greater than 5assuming both xxn What is Hypothesis Testing Use 1 prop Z
