FRatioCI

FRatioCI[ratio, n, m]
gives a confidence interval based on an F-ratio distribution with n and m degrees of freedom.
  • FRatioCI[ratio, n, m] gives a confidence interval {min, max} for a ratio of variances estimated by ratio.
  • For confidence level , min=ratio/q(1+)/2 and max=ratio/q_((1-alpha)/2) where qi is the ith quantile of an F-ratio distribution with n numerator and m denominator degrees of freedom.
  • FRatioCI is the confidence interval for a ratio of population variances based on sample variances estimated from samples of size n+1 and m+1.
  • The following option can be given:
