Suppose you calculate a 95% confidence interval for the mean hemogloblin level of students based on a sample of 100 students. THe result is:
10<µ<16 g/L.
Suppose you calculate a 95% confidence interval for the mean hemogloblin level of students based on a sample of 100 students. THe result is:
10<µ<16 g/L.
Is this correct?
P(µ<10) and P(µ>16) = .05
Thanks for your help.
Usually it with a symetric interval it means:
P(µ<10)=0.025, and P(µ>16)=0.025,
That is the interval contains 95% of the distribution, so 2.5% lie outside
above, and below the interval.
