Step 1

Margin of error:

The margin of error helps in constructing confidence intervals, which gives a range of plausible values for the population parameter. Margin of error is nothing but a range of values above and below the value of sample statistic.

For example, the formula of margin of error for sample mean of z-test is given below.

Step 2

Properties of Margin of error:

Some of the properties of margin of error is as follows:

• The margin of error value gets smaller as n (sample size) tends to infinity.
• Higher the value of level of significance, higher the margin of error.
• Higher the standard...
