4 This paper describes a 100x(1-;) confidence interval for the mean of a bounded random variable which is shorter than the interval that Chebyshev's inequality induces for small and which avoids the error of approximation that assuming normality induces. The paper also presents an analogous development for deriving a 1OQx(l-d) confidence interval for a proportion.
