We used this concept when calculating the sample standard deviation, and we will see it again during the semester, so it is important to have a good understanding of it.x1 = 1.709×2 = 1.3a. Calculate the sample mean of the numbers in your sample (x1 and x2).b. Calculate the sample variance of the numbers in your sample.c. Calculate the sample variance in a different way: use in the denominator the sample size, in this case n = 2, as opposed to the correct number of degrees of freedom, n – 1 = 1.d. Calculate the sample variance in a different way: instead of the sample mean x , use the known population mean = 0. Use n – 1 = 1 as the number of degrees of freedom.e. Calculate the sample variance in yet another way: still use = 0 instead of x , but this time use n = 2 as the number of degrees of freedom.MathStatistics and Probability SIPA U6500
