### Why is the Standard Error Equal to Sigma Divided by the Square Root of n?

Photo by Ken Treloar on UnsplashEvery time I teach the Central Limit Theorem, I get questions from students on why we divide the population standard deviation, sigma, by the square root of the sample size to calculate the standard deviation of the sampling distribution which we call the standard error. Recall that the equation for

### One-sample Sigma Known z-test for the Mean

Joel, I have not checked all your calculations, but the process you used looks good. I note that this is a problem where you are given a lot of raw data. Which technology did you use? I ask because problems where you have to manually enter a lot of raw data often lead to mistakes

### How to State the Conclusion about a Hypothesis Test-old

The Easier Way After you have completed the statistical analysis and decided to reject or fail to reject the Null hypothesis, you need to state your conclusion about the claim. To get the correct wording, you need to recall which hypothesis was the claim. If the claim was the null, then your conclusion is
