The student will calculate the 90% confidence interval for the mean cost of a home in the area in which this school is located.
The student will interpret confidence intervals.
The student will determine the effects of changing conditions on the confidence interval.
Collect the data
Check the Real Estate section in your local newspaper. Record the sale prices for 35 randomly selected homes recently listed in the county.
Note
Many newspapers list them only one day per week. Also, we will assume that homes come up for sale randomly.

Describe the data
Compute the following:
$\overline{x}$ = _____
${s}_{x}$ = _____
n = _____
In words, define the random variable
$\overline{X}$ .
State the estimated distribution to use. Use both words and symbols.
Find the confidence interval
Calculate the confidence interval and the error bound.
Confidence Interval: _____
Error Bound: _____
How much area is in both tails (combined)?
α = _____
How much area is in each tail?
$\frac{\alpha}{2}$ = _____
Fill in the blanks on the graph with the area in each section. Then, fill in the number
line with the upper and lower limits of the confidence interval and the sample mean.
Some students think that a 90% confidence interval contains 90% of the data. Use the list of data on the first page and count how many of the data values lie within the confidence interval. What percent is this? Is this percent close to 90%? Explain why this percent should or should not be close to 90%.
Describe the confidence interval
In two to three complete sentences, explain what a confidence interval means (in general), as if you were talking to someone who has not taken statistics.
In one to two complete sentences, explain what this confidence interval means for this particular study.
Use the data to construct confidence intervals
Using the given information, construct a confidence interval for each confidence level given.
Confidence level
EBM/Error Bound
Confidence Interval
50%
80%
95%
99%
What happens to the EBM as the confidence level increases? Does the width of the confidence interval increase or decrease? Explain why this happens.
I want to test linear regression data such as maintenance fees vs house size. Can I use R square, F test to test the relationship?
Is the good condition of R square greater than 0.5
@Nistha Kashyap Random sampling is the selection of random items (or random numbers) from the group.
A sample error occurs when the selected samples do not truely represent the whole group. The can happen when most or all of the selected samples are taken from only one section of the group;
Not difference in the formula except the notation, sample mean is denoted by x bar and population mean is denoted by mu symbol.
There is formula as well as notation between difference variance and standard deviations
Akash
Likely the difference would be in the result, unless the sample is an exact representation of the population (which is unlikely.)
Ron
what is data
Nii
Nii Avin - Data is just a simple way to refer to the numbers in the population, or in the sample used in your calculations.
Ron
what are the types of data
Nii
Data is the very pale android from the Star Trek Enterprise

Handson
what is a mode?
Handson
Nii - data is whatever you are sampling. Such as the number of students in each classroom.
Ron
Handson Ndintek - the mode is the number appearing most frequently. Example: 7 9 11 7 4 6 3 7 2. 7 is the mode. In a group such as 7 9 1 4 6 3, there is no mode because no number appears more often than any other.
what is the ongoing probability that President Trump will remain in the position he has chosen as his viability of his cabinet as he runs for reelection in the primaries of 2020 election year
it's a science of collection, organization, analysis and summarizing data to get useful information to make several types of conclusions.which can be used in real life.
anshika
what is the statistical probability that president Trump will remain in the white house after the election of 2020?
Terry
i agree with anshika is right but let me add that such decisions are made in face of uncertainty
statistic can classified into many types
eassy to understand

what is mean?

Hope this helps.
There are three main types of averages.
*mean -> average ->
(X1+X2+X3+...+Xn) / n
*mode -> the element within a set which occurs most.
{3,4,5,8,12,3,4,3,3,56}
mode = 3
*median -
{3,3,4,5,8,12,56}
median = 5
OR
{3,4,5,8,12,56}
median = 6.5
Well you could make a table. And as the function you use the one used at the z table
Luca
The normal function is only one way, so you can only try using different numbers until you get the probability that you have. So that is easier if you have a table
Luca
me don't know nothing about z table and don't know how to see the z value on table can you tell me please how see the value on table
Maham
The z table is the table of the standard normal distribution
Luca
You can look it up on internet, its easier than writing down the normal distribution function (with an integral) and doing a table in the calculator
Luca
OK thanks luca
Maham
yes use pnorm in r
Venkat
pnorm(2.3,mean=0,sd=1)
Venkat
pnorm?
Maham
do u have r software
Venkat
no
Maham
its with tht u will get
Venkat
or type in google
Venkat
z mathportal calculator
Venkat
calculator
Venkat
OK venkat thanks
Maham
welcome
Venkat
have calculator but don't know how find z value

hey guys I'm from computer background so what are the concepts I supposed to prepare for interview in statistics
the tenth percentile for land selling at jabi is 35,000 and the nineteenth percentile for the land price in the same area is 225,what is the 10_90 percentile range
