Hi,

I've attempted a similar problem based on the above method. Now, if i want to find the sample variance, do i go about it like this?
> for (i in 1:1000)vars[[i]] = sum(z[[i]])
> vars[[i]]
the overall sigma squared will just be 1, because the distribution is standard normal. Is this correct?
if so, then to find (n−1)S^2/σ^2,
i will need s=999*sum(vars[[i]]))/1?
Is this correct, or am i getting lost along the way?
Thank you
