Find 98 CI - Intro to Inferential Statistics

  • 0:00 - 0:08
    So now, we're assuming that this sample mean is one of the 98% that falls within
  • 0:08 - 0:15
    2.33 standard deviations of the population mean, in this case Mu sub BT. And if
  • 0:15 - 0:21
    that's the case, then Mu sub BT must be, in turn, within 2.33 standard
  • 0:21 - 0:28
    deviations of this sample mean. So, the sample mean minus 2.33 standard
  • 0:28 - 0:35
    deviations, which is 1.01, will be our lower bound for this confidence interval.
  • 0:35 - 0:43
    So, this comes out to about 37.65, and then our upper bound for the 98%
  • 0:43 - 0:52
    confidence interval be 40 plus 2.33 times 1.01. So, this is 42.35 approximately.
  • 0:52 - 0:57
    So basically, we got the sample mean 40, and we decided that it's possible that
  • 0:57 - 1:03
    it's either here or here on the distribution, such that 1% of the data is either
  • 1:03 - 1:09
    above it or below it. Before, with the 95% confidence interval, we said most
  • 1:09 - 1:15
    likely it's going to be a little bit closer to the mean, so that 2.5% of the
  • 1:15 - 1:20
    data is above it and 2.5% is below. But now, we're being a little more lenient.
  • 1:20 - 1:26
    We're allowing this sample mean to be a little bit further from the population
  • 1:26 - 1:32
    mean. And, so now, we have a slightly bigger interval. But now, we're more sure
  • 1:32 - 1:38
    that the true population mean will be in this interval. Recall that before the
  • 1:38 - 1:45
    95% confidence interval was from 38.01 to 41.99, so it was a little smaller than
  • 1:45 - 1:47
    this. Good job.
