    Help on Confidence Interval and Hypothesis Testing

    I have a final tonight in my MBA program and struggling on these two items. Does anyone have a resource that they use to better understand how to setup and interpret these two statistical problems? The professor is looking for us to set it up, compute it, draw it, and interpret the results.

    Appreciate any help.

    good grief-there is no cheating. he is looking to get a better understanding. he isn't asking someone to take his test.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    "Do you recommend the Yates continuity correction in this case? I have been going back and forth on it"

    Re: Help on Confidence Interval and Hypothesis Testing

    Little confused as to what you need from these, as they are broad topics. Do you have any example problems or anything like that?

    Anyway, here's some Googled info for you. Perhaps it can help?

    Confidence Intervals & Hypothesis Testing (1 of 5)

    Re: Help on Confidence Interval and Hypothesis Testing

    Here is a sample:

    A sample of 11 circuits from a large normal population has a mean resistance of 2.20 ohms. We know from past testing that the population standard deviation is .35 ohms.

    Solution:=2.20+1.96(0.35/square root of 11)
    =2.20+0.2068
    =1.9932<mean<2.4068

    How does he come up with this solution?

    Re: Help on Confidence Interval and Hypothesis Testing

    Its the mean +or- the Z value (which you get from a distribution table, 95% always equals 1.96 if the distribution is normal) * std dev / sqr root of samples.

    Mean +/- Z * (std dev/sqr root ( # of samples) = Confidence Interval
