 P: 206 Maybe I should have been more clear. Even knowing little to nothing about statistics the problem seemed fairly straightforward to me except for this "expected deviation". There is a large population of size N where N>1,000, possibly N>10,000. Errors occur in individuals with some probability p so each individual trial is Bernoulli. Then we can assume that p, for large N, also represents the rate of occurrence of errors in the population. If I consider the set of all subsets of the population of size n
