**Estimating a Population mean: π known**

We are going to use the point estimate π₯ , to estimate the population mean using confidence intervals, when πis known.

**Estimating a Population mean: π known**

We are going to use the point estimate π₯ , to estimate the population mean using confidence intervals, when πis known. Usually you donβt know π if you donβt know the population mean.

**Estimating a Population mean: π known**

We are going to use the point estimate π₯ , to estimate the population mean using confidence intervals, when πis known. Usually you donβt know π if you donβt know the population mean. We require either normality or π>30 for the most part. We actually require a loose normality that is that there are not too many outliers and the data sort of has a bell shape.

**Estimating a Population mean: π known**

How many integrated circuits must be randomly selected and tested for time to failure in order to estimate the mean time to failure? We want a 95% confidence that the sample mean is within 2 hr. of the population mean, and the population standard deviation is known to be 18.6 hours.

13
**Estimating a Population mean: π Not known**

In this section we learn to estimate the population mean when π is not known. Since π is typically unknown in real life this is a useful method as it is practical and realistic. The sample mean π is the best point estimate of the population mean π. When π is not know we use a Student t distribution to find our critical values.

**Estimating a Population mean: π Not known**

If a population is normally distributed, then the distribution of π‘= π₯ βπ π π is a Student t distribution for all samples of size n.

15
**Estimating a Population mean: π Not known**

If a population is normally distributed, then the distribution of π‘= π₯ βπ π π is a Student t distribution for all samples of size n. The number of degrees of freedom for a collection of sample data is the number of sample values that can vary after certain restrictions have been imposed on all data values. The number of degrees of freedom is often abbreviated as df.

**Estimating a Population mean: π Not known**

For us the number of degrees of freedom is simply the sample size minus 1. Degrees of freedom =πβπ

In a test of the Atkins weight loss program, 40 individuals participated in a randomized trial with overweight adults. After 12 months, the mean weight loss was found to be 2.1 lb, with a standard deviation of 4.8 lb What is the best point estimate of the mean weight loss of all overweight adults who follow the Atkins program? Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate of the mean weight loss for all such subjects. Does the Atkins program appear to be effective? Is it practical?

Important properties of the t distribution. The Student t distribution is different for different sample sizes. The Student t distribution has the same general symmetric bell shape as the standard normal distribution, but reflects the greater variability that is expected with small samples. The Student t distribution has a mean of t=0 The standard deviation of a t distribution varies with the sample size but is always larger than 1. As n gets large the t distribution becomes more like the standard normal distribution.

Listed below are 12 lengths (in minutes) of randomly selected movies. Construct a 99% confidence interval estimate of the mean length of all movies. Assuming that it takes 30 min to empty a theater after a movie, clean it, allow time for the next audience to enter, and show previews, what is the minimum time that a theater manager should plan between start times of movies, assuming that this time will be sufficient for typical movies?

Quiz 13 When Mendel conducted his famous genetics experiments with peas, one sample of offspring consisted of 428 green peas and 152 yellow peas. Find a 95% confidence interval estimate of the percentage of yellow peas. Based on his theory of genetics, Mendel expected that 25% of the offspring peas would be yellow. Given that the percentage of offspring yellow peas is not 25%, do the results contradict Mendelβs Theory? Why or why not.
