Chapter 9 – Textbook
Textbook Power Points (.pptx)
The previous chapter assumed some information about the population such as the mean, standard deviation or shape of the distribution. In many business situations, these values may not be known and in fact the reason for taking a sample is to estimate these values. In fact, we may use the mean of a sample to estimate the mean of the population.
