  • Q6
    What is the purpose of a confidence interval?
    To reduce the standard deviation of the population

  • Q11
    What is the margin of error?
    The amount by which the confidence interval overestimates the population parameter.
    The amount by which the point estimate overestimates the population parameter.
    The amount added and subtracted to the point estimate to form a confidence interval.
    The amount by which the point estimate underestimates the population parameter.

  • Q12
    What is the level of confidence?
    The probability that the population parameter is exactly equal to the point estimate.
    The probability that the sample mean is equal to the population mean.
    The probability that the population parameter falls outside the confidence interval.
    The probability that the population parameter falls within the confidence interval.

  • Q13
    What is the formula for the margin of error?
    Margin of error = Z* (Standard deviation/Square root of sample size).
    Margin of error = Z* (Standard deviation * Square root of sample size).
    Margin of error = Z/ (Standard deviation/Square root of sample size).
    Margin of error = Z/ (Standard deviation * Square root of sample size).

    Point estimate * Margin of error.
    Point estimate ± Margin of error.
    Point estimate / Margin of error.
