5. T-INT: 1 .: Single sample confidence interval for the population mean, ,
for small samples with unknown population variance.
.: Confidence interval for the difference of the population
, for small samples with unknown population variances.
Example 1 – Determine the centered confidence interval for the mean of a
population if a sample of 60 elements indicate that the mean value of the
sample is x = 23.2, and its standard deviation is s = 5.2. Use
The confidence level is C = 1- = 0.95.
