9 We re ignoring the fact that it should be N 7 m in the denominator but 771 would be the number of variables in the equation By the way it is N in the denominator if the mean you are using is the real mean and not one estimated from the data But that rarely if ever happens Also if you get signi cantly diiTerent results with N or N 7 m you re almost certainly up to no good and should get more data First we need the deviations of f which we can estimate with a Taylor series in the variables taken about their mean values 10 o Combining these we can get a in terms of 0395 03 which we measured
