PART IIFORMULA FOR DETERMINING THE WEIGHTED AVERAGE QUANTITY OF THE UNITS IN A SAMPLE

For the purposes of paragraph 39(4)(a), the formula for adjusting the sample mean to determine the weighted average quantity of the units in the sample is as follows

Formula for adjusting the sample mean to determine the weighted average quantity of the units in the sample

where

Xa 
is the weighted average quantity of the units in the sample
x 
is the sample mean calculated as follows:

x = ∑x ÷ n

∑x 
is the sum of the net quantities of all units in the sample
t 
is the value determined in accordance with Part III for the selected sample size
n 
is the number of units in the sample
s 
is the standard deviation of the sample, calculated as follows
Formula for the standard deviation of the sample
∑(x-x)2 
is the sum of the squared differences between the sample mean and the net quantity of each unit in the sample.
  • *The value of (t ÷ √n) may, instead of being calculated in accordance with this Part, be determined using the applicable value set out in Column III of the table to Part III

Linear Interpolation of Values

Where a sample size is selected that is not listed in Column I of this table and lies between 32 and 125, the value of t will be determined by linear interpolation as follows:

Formula for the value of t determined by linear interpolation where the sample size is not given in Column I of the Table For Values of t and (t/the square root of n) “in PART III and lies between 32 and 125”

where

a 
is the value of t for the closest sample size below the selected sample size
b 
is the value of t for the closest sample size above the selected sample size
c 
is the result of 120 divided by the closest sample size below the selected sample size
d 
is the result of 120 divided by the closest sample size above the selected sample size
e 
is the result of 120 divided by the selected sample size
