This tool helps you estimate the average value of a dataset based on a sample.

## Point Estimator Calculator

This calculator helps estimate the population mean based on a sample mean, sample variance, and sample size.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Enter the sample mean (𝑛).
- Enter the sample variance (σᵢ²).
- Enter the sample size (n).
- Enter the desired confidence level (in percentage, e.g., 95 for 95%).
- Enter the margin of error (E).
- Click “Calculate” to get the confidence interval for the population mean.

### How It Calculates the Results

The calculator determines the confidence interval for the population mean using the following steps:

- It calculates the standard error by taking the square root of the sample variance divided by the sample size.
- It uses the confidence level to determine the appropriate z-score.
- The confidence interval is then calculated as: 𝑛 ± (z-score * standard error).

### Limitations

This calculator assumes a normally distributed population and the sample size is sufficiently large. Smaller sample sizes or non-normal populations may result in less accurate estimates.

## Use Cases for This Calculator

### Calculating the Mean Height of a Sample Group

Enter the heights of individuals in a sample group to calculate the average height using a point estimator. This helps you estimate the overall average height of the population based on your sample data.

### Estimating the Proportion of Defective Products in a Batch

Input the number of defective products found in a batch to estimate the proportion of defects in the population using a point estimator. This allows you to infer the quality of the entire batch based on the sample data.

### Determining the Average Salary of Employees in a Company

Provide the salaries of a sample of employees to estimate the average salary using a point estimator. This helps management understand the salary distribution and make informed decisions.

### Predicting the Mean Time Spent on a Task

Input the time taken by individuals to complete a task to estimate the average time using a point estimator. This assists in forecasting the time required for similar tasks in the future.

### Estimating the Percentage of Customers Satisfied with a Product

Enter survey results to estimate the percentage of customers satisfied with a product using a point estimator. This provides valuable insights into customer satisfaction levels.

### Calculating the Average Temperature in a Region

Input daily temperature data in a region to estimate the average temperature using a point estimator. This helps meteorologists predict future climate patterns.

### Determining the Mean Score of Students in a Class

Provide the scores of students in a class to estimate the mean score using a point estimator. This aids teachers in assessing the academic performance of their students.

### Estimating the Median Household Income in a City

Input income data of households to estimate the median income using a point estimator. This enables policymakers to understand the income distribution within a city.

### Predicting the Average Sales Revenue for a Product

Enter sales data to estimate the average revenue using a point estimator. This assists businesses in forecasting future sales and setting financial goals.

### Determining the Percentage of Students Passing an Exam

Input exam results to estimate the percentage of students passing using a point estimator. This helps educational institutions evaluate the effectiveness of their teaching methods.
