Say I have a Gaussian random number generator that generates random numbers with an unknown mean x. I get a few random numbers from the generator and I want to estimate x. The estimate will, of course, be the average of the numbers (y), but how confident can I be that x is within a value, a, of y?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
