# What is the Formula for sampling error related to biostatistics?

I've been looking up the same thing for part of a stats module I do in my nutrition course. This is what I've found - no guarantee it's right but might help a bit. … sampling error ∝ 1/√n ∝ means varies directly as so SE = k/√n where k is an unknown constant if we have the size of the sample, n, and the sampling error for one case in a study (which in my question we are given) we can calculate k and get the formula for that study. In my question: for 48 subjects the sample error is 0.3mmol/l. We are asked to find how many subjects would be required to get the sampling error down to 0.1mmol/l. SE = 0.3, n = 48 so 0.3 = k/√48 k = 0.3 * √48 k = 2.078 So in this case, SE = 2.078/√n. K IS NOT ALWAYS GOING TO BE THIS NUMBER!!! You'll need to work it out each time as I dont think it will always be the same. Now work backwards to find n when SE = 0.1mmol/l 0.1 = 2.078/√n √n = 20.78 n = (20.78)2 = 432 So to get a sampling error of 0.1mmol/l we would need 432 subjects. Hope this helps! Jen xx

# What is the formula for calculating standard error of the estimate?

In what model? In a linear model, if X is the model matrix, it is the square root of all this: the residual sum of squares from the model * the diagonal values of the in…verse of(X'*X).

# What is the formula for finding discount percent?

take the % off amount and put a decimal at the end ex: 10% is 10. Move the decimal to the left twice ex: 10% becomes .10 or 50% becomes .50 and so on. take that and multiply b…y the original amount. ex: origionally amount of a shirt is $24.99 and it's on sale 50% off so multiply 24.99x.50= 12.495 if it's 10% multiply 24.99x.10=2.499 next round up the number you got when you multiplied ex: 12.495=12.50 and 2.499=2.50 then take the original amount and subtract the number you got for multiplying the original amount by the decimal amount. ex: 24.99-12.50=12.49 (the final answer is how much the shirt would cost at 50% off) and 25.99-2.50=22.49(the final answer is how much the shirt would cost at 10% off)

# What is the formula to calculate maximum random errors?

Maximum Random Error is often calculated by subtracting the average from the data point farthest from the average.

# How high does percent error have to be considered accurate?

That depends a lot on the application. In some cases, a 10% error (or even more) may be acceptable, in other, 1%, in others, you need a much higher precision. Generally, a %E…rror of approximately 5% is regarded as accurate. However, this is only a guideline for small experiments or data sets. Also, one should ensure that the relative standard deviation is less than 5% also. This ensures that the data set is precise.

# What is the percent to quota formula?

A quota is the value of the minimum expected result of a measurable goal over a discrete, independent length of time. For instance, a quota may be established stating that all… employees of a certain business are expected to sell a minimum of 100 units of product over the next four weeks. Using the above example, a percent to quota (PTQ) formula is established by dividing the actual number of units sold over the month by the quota and multiplying that result by 100%. So, if you sold 80 units over that month, your PTQ would be: (80/100)*100% = 80%

# Formula for percent yield in chemistry?

Percentage yield is worked out as (amount you got/ amount you could have got) x 100 You should do the calculation in moles so weigh your compound, work out its… molar mass and divide the mass by the molar mass to get number of moles. Then you have to work out your maximum theoretical yield - work out how many moles of reactant you started with and check the stoichiometric ratio from your balanced equation to find how many moles you expected to get. In organic reactions a yield of 60% or so is normal. The more steps you went through in your preparation, the lower you would expect your yield to be. Many reactions just do give a low yield anyway, because they are at equilibrium rather than going to completion, like the Haber process.

# What is the percent error of 4cm?

A percent error depends on the size of the measurement as well as the error itself. It's very intuitive to think about: If you're measuring a piece of paper and you're off… by 4 cm, you'll have problems; if you're measuring the moon, that's nothing. A bigger percent error is a bigger deal to an engineer. You can calculate it the same way as any percentage: Divide the error by the total length of the measurement, then multiply by 100 to convert it from a proportion to a percentage.
