2. Inferences About a Population Variance • Chi-Square Distribution • Interval Estimation • Hypothesis Testing

3. Chi-Square Distribution • The chi-square distributionis the sum of squared standardized normal random variables such as (z1)2+(z2)2+(z3)2 and so on. • The chi-square distribution is based on sampling • from a normal population. • The sampling distribution of (n - 1)s2/ 2 has a chi- square distribution whenever a simple random sample of size n is selected from a normal population. • We can use the chi-square distribution to develop • interval estimates and conduct hypothesis tests • about a population variance.

4. Examples of Sampling Distribution of (n - 1)s2/ 2 With 2 degrees of freedom With 5 degrees of freedom With 10 degrees of freedom 0

5. We will use the notation to denote the value for the chi-square distribution that provides an area of a to the right of the stated value. Chi-Square Distribution • For example, there is a .95 probability of obtaining a c2 (chi-square) value such that

6. Interval Estimation of 2 .025 .025 95% of the possible 2 values 2 0

7. Interval Estimation of 2 • There is a (1 – a) probability of obtaining a c2 value such that • Substituting (n – 1)s2/s 2 for the c2 we get • Performing algebraic manipulation we get

8. Interval Estimation of 2 • Interval Estimate of a Population Variance where the values are based on a chi-square distribution with n - 1 degrees of freedom and where 1 -  is the confidence coefficient.

9. Interval Estimation of  • Interval Estimate of a Population Standard Deviation Taking the square root of the upper and lower limits of the variance interval provides the confidence interval for the population standard deviation.
