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 userspecified value (with e.g. 95% certainty) in commonsmath? 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? Thanks, Thorsten
