Subject [MATH] Estimate of the population mean given a sample
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 18:37:02 GMT
We have a sample which comes from a binomial process with unknown probability. Is it possible
to get the likelihood of the population is larger than a user-specified value (with e.g. 95%
certainty) in commons-math?
For example, given we have two samples:
S1: we have 4 out of 5 successes
S2: we have 80 out of 100 successes

I would like to know the probability that the real mean is larger than 60% given one of the
samples above. Is there an easy way to calculate it?
