There is absolutely no relationship to what you've asked. I'm pretty sure you simply framed the question in the wrong way, but to literally answer your question... none. Zero relationship. There's no such thing. There is however a relationship between standard deviation and a CI, but a CI can in no shape way or form influence a standard deviation.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What happens to the confidence interval as the standard deviation of a distribution increases?

The standard deviation is used in the numerator of the margin of error calculation. As the standard deviation increases, the margin of error increases; therefore the confidence interval width increases. So, the confidence interval gets wider.

Is it true that the larger the standard deviation the wider the confidence interval?


What happen to confidence interval if increase sample size and population standard deviation simultanesous?

The increase in sample size will reduce the confidence interval. The increase in standard deviation will increase the confidence interval. The confidence interval is not based on a linear function so the overall effect will require some calculations based on the levels before and after these changes. It would depend on the relative rates at which the change in sample size and change in standard deviation occurred. If the sample size increased more quickly than then standard deviation, in some sense, then the size of the confidence interval would decrease. Conversely, if the standard deviation increased more quickly than the sample size, in some sense, then the size of the confidence interval would increase.

What happens to the confidence interval as the standard deviation of a distribution decreases?

It goes up.

What effect increasing only the population standard deviation will have on the width of the confidence interval?

It will make it wider.

When the sample size and sample standard deviation remain the same a 99 percent confidence interval for a population mean will be narrower than the 95 percent confidence interval for the mean?


How do you calculate confidence interval?

Confidence intervals may be calculated for any statistics, but the most common statistics for which CI's are computed are mean, proportion and standard deviation. I have include a link, which contains a worked out example for the confidence interval of a mean.

If the standard deviation is doubled what will be the effect on the confidence interval?

The confidence intervals will increase. How much it will increase depends on whether the underlying probability model is additive or multiplicative.

Why confidence interval useful?

Why confidence interval is useful

When comparing the 95 percent confidence and prediction intervals for a given regression analysis what is the relation between confidence and prediction interval?

Confidence interval considers the entire data series to fix the band width with mean and standard deviation considers the present data where as prediction interval is for independent value and for future values.

What happens to the confidence interval if you increase the confidence level?

The confidence interval becomes wider.

When population distribution is right skewed is the interval still valid?

You probably mean the confidence interval. When you construct a confidence interval it has a percentage coverage that is based on assumptions about the population distribution. If the population distribution is skewed there is reason to believe that (a) the statistics upon which the interval are based (namely the mean and standard deviation) might well be biased, and (b) the confidence interval will not accurately cover the population value as accurately or symmetrically as expected.
