Errata to Version 24 February 2010
p. 9, Eq 1.13: Change z_10 to z_0.10
p. 37, Example 2.8: Add words to problem statement "... a confidence interval for the difference between two independent population means with half-width ..."
p. 47, Example 2.12: Change 504 to 505 in problem statement.
p. 74, Table 4.1, column P(0 < p < pU) = 1 - alpha, row chi-square approximation: change the probability subscript on the chi-square value from 1 - alpha/2 to 1 - alpha.
p. 81, Example 4.4: Change 2.385 to 2.066 in two places, change 0.9915 to 0.9806
p. 83, Example 4.7: In example statement change 8% to 9%, 10% to 5%, and in solution change (0.08,0.10) to (0.09,0.05).
p. 97, last sentence of intro to Section 4.3.2: Omit the final "s" in the word "calculations, that is, "The power calculations for ..." should be "The power calculation for ...".
p. 98, Example 4.16: Change power in solution from 0.69 to 0.60
p. 154, Eq. 7.47: Missing reference number to Sheskin [60]
p. 166, Example 8.3: In problem statement, change reference to Eq. 8.6 to Eq. 8.7.
p. 175, Reference to Burdick [10] should be to a different Burdick reference. See errata for p. 317.
p. 194, Example 9.3: Delete the equation number in the solution (9.13). ONLY IN FUTURE EDITIONS!
p. 197, Example 9.6: Replace 1.645 with 1.96.
p. 231, Eq. 10.33: Change equals sign to approximately equals sign.
p. 175, 258, 260: Reference to Burdick [10] should be to another missing Burdick reference. See entry for p. 317.
p. 270: In Step #5, delete the word "is" in the phrase "is given by the fraction".
p. 274: Change "When the value of alpha is not specified ..." to "When the value of the type one error rate alpha is not specified ...".
