a. Describe what the parameter is in this context.

b. The standard deviation (SD) from the simulated null distribution is 0.007. Use the 2SD method to find a 95% confidence interval for the parameter.

c. If we had 2,020 in our sample, how would that change the width of our 95% confidence interval? (Circle the correct answer.) Wider Same width Narrower

d. Using the Theory-Based Inference applet we find both 95% and 99% confidence intervals as shown below. Denote which is which. (0.033, 0.068) (0.037, 0.064)
