Statement of a problem № m40211


A physicist makes 25 independent measurements of the specific gravity of a certain body. He knows that the limitations of his equipment are such that the standard deviation of each measurement is σ units. a. By using the Chebyshev inequality, find a lower bound for the probability that the average of his measurements will differ from the actual specific gravity of the body by less than σ/4 units. b. By using the central limit theorem, find an approximate value for the probability in part (a).
