1.) A back-of-the-envelope calculation for a 95% CI for the

population mean mu is

[xbar - 2*SE , xbar + 2*SE]

where xbar is the sample mean and SE is the standard error

of the sample mean. When xbar = 3.1 and SE 1.5,

what is the left end point of a back-of-the-envelope 95%

confidence interval for the population mean?

2.) Suppose that 32 of the 1500 people that received an email we sent, clicked on the offer image. What is the estimate for the left end point of a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of people in the population that will click on an offer that we send them? (Round to 3 digits after the decimal point)

1)left end point of a back-of-the-envelope 95% confidence interval for the population mean =3.1-2*1.5 =0.1

2)

 sample success x = 32 sample size          n= 1500 sample proportion p̂ =x/n= 0.0213 std error se= √(p*(1-p)/n) = 0.0037

estimate for the left end point of a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of people in the population that will click on an offer that we send them =0.0213-2*0.0037 =0.014
