Question

conception clear up about sample variance

1. I heard that when the n is getting bigger, then the sample variance will be zero. I don't understand here,variance means the distance between the mean and the data value , in here does the mean is sample mean or population mean???

2. if the sample variance is 0, then all the data value will be same as the mean???

I am so confused, because how could that be possible, if we have large sample size n then, variance will be zero and all the data value will be same as the true mean?

Please be able to follow up the comment

Answer #1

The mean used is sample mean while calculating the variance.

when the n is getting bigger, then the sample variance will be zero this hold for very large n that is some Millions of sample.

So, the assumption about the sample is that most of the sample values are close to each other where as teh population values are very far.

So, when sample values are closer the numerator is small and with large value of n ( in Millions ) then denominator is very large hence the value of variance is almost zero It is never exact zero it is approaching to 0 ( iit might be 0.0000001 ) but not exactly zero.

Conception about hypothesis test:
Q1. my professor said if the null hypothesis is true, then it is
normal distribution but what does that mean? because sometimes we
will reject the H0, does that mean if we reject it then it is not
normal distribution?
Q2. sometimes we will have H0: u=30 something like that, but I
don't understand as i was told that we don't know the population
value; however u is the population value so i am confused. Plus,...

The following set of data is from a sample of
n equals 7n=7.
13 4 1 10 3 4
713 4 1 10 3 4 7
a. Compute the mean, median, and mode.
b. Compute the range, variance, standard deviation, and
coefficient of variation.
c. Compute the Z scores. Are there any outliers?
d. Describe the shape of the data set.
I am having a hard time getting the variance.

Looking at my answers, I was am always off buy about range of .1
to .4 from the correct answer that is stated. I am having a really
tough time trying to figure out how to get my number to be exactly
like what is shown as correct so I need a little help with figuring
out what I am doing wrong. Here is an example of a question I just
cant seem to figure out. I'll show all my...

I am having trouble deciding what is true for these questions. I
thought I had the right answers but they keep getting marked wrong.
For Question 1, I chose option 2, as I though all the others to be
false. For Question 4 I chose option 4, as I learned that the
z-scores of the mean and standard deviation were always 0 and 1,
respectively. For question 5 I chose option 4 as well.
Which one of the following statements...

1.The sample mean is an unbiased estimator for
the population mean. This means:
The sample mean always equals the population mean.
The average sample mean, over all possible samples, equals the
population mean.
The sample mean will only vary a little from the population
mean.
The sample mean has a normal distribution.
2.Which of the following statements is
CORRECTabout the sampling distribution of the
sample mean:
The standard error of the sample mean will decrease as the
sample size increases....

SOME DRAWBACK OF BLACK-SCHOLES
Briefly discuss here some difficulties associated with the Black
Scholes formula, which is widely used to calculate the price of an
option. For example, consider a European call option for a stock.
This is the right to buy a specific number of shares of a specific
stock on a specific date in the future, at a specific price (the
exercise price, also called the strike price). If all these
quantities are fixed, the question becomes: what...
