Erratum: 14/11/2012 Page 4, Week 10 material:
“The margin of error is 2.23x0.8/sqrt(10) = 0.56.” is erroneous. Instead of 0.8, it should be 2.4, so that the result is 1.69. Please replace similar error in the next line as well.
In the example for sample size calculation, 0.8 should be changed to 2.4 as well.
Thanks to Gianluca Polgar who read the notes carefully and spotted the error.
