statistics

if i have
k = 36.86 +/- 4.78
and
v = 113 +/- 9.92
both using 95% confidence limits and no true values of k or v given
am i right in saying that accuracy cannot be determined
and that v is a more precise measurement

my question was to comment on what can be said about
the precision
the accuracy
and which is measured more precisely

thanks

  1. The confidence limits use the mean and the standard deviation (mean ± 1.96 SD for 95% confidence interval)). The less variable the confidence limits (lower SD), the more accurate/precise the estimate is.

    I hope this helps.

  2. i know that the standard deviation and confidence limits are lower numerically for K
    but proportionally as a percentage of the mean they are lower for V

    i think this means that v is more accurate

    i want to know if im correct in saying this
