- Work Chapter 1, Exercise 4, on page 16 of Bayesian Computation With R.
- Work Chapter 1, Exercise 5, on pages 16 and 17 of Bayesian Computation With R.
- Note that problems (1) and (2) use the unrealistic large sample confidence interval for p-hat.
Redo Exercise 5 with the
Wilson score interval
for p-hat. Note that Z1-alpha/2 is 1.645 as in Problems (1) and (2).
The derivation is shown
here. Note that Zalpha/2 in the derivation is 1.645 as in Problems (1) and (2).
