away from mean. 
background image   4. If a mean age of a sample of 100 randomly chosen individuals is 48 and the standard deviation of the sample is 16, what is the standard error of the mean?
Recall that
. The following 2 questions refer to this figure: 5. How large, in %, is the area to the left of (standard errors)? 6. How large, in %, is the area to the left of (standard errors)? 7. If, for a sample in which the subjects are randomly chosen, the mean income is $45,000, the sample size is 1600, the standard deviation of the sample is $4,000, and
the standard error of the mean is $100, what, approximately, is the 95% confidence
interval for the population mean? Recall that
.   n=100 
SD= 16 
mean= 48  16/square root of 100 = 1.6 
99.7 - 68 then divide by 2 = ~16% answer has to be between 95% and 99.7%

standard error of the mean is $10, what, approximately, is the 99.7% confidence
interval for the population mean? Recall that
.   9. Suppose a reputable pollster reports that, on the basis of a random sample of
American adults, the President's approval rating is 50%, and that the margin of error
is plus or minus 4%. What is the correct interpretation of this reported result? 10. The process of statistical inference is defined as: 11. Which of the following is generally not an essential component of the process of
statistical inference?
