Standard error

whats the difference between standard deviation and standard error

SD is the SD of the sample. (Goes with sample dist)
SE is the SD of the sample statistic. (Goes with sampling dist)

wait whats the diff between sampling and sample distribution

Sample dist just talks about the sample. Sampling dist means the distribution of the entire distribution of all the possible samples you could randomly select from the population.

so your p hat comes from the sampling distribution?

p hat is the sample proportion from just the sample of data you collect

so then b bar is from the sampling distributions?

x bar is similar to p hat, its regards the sample of data you collect for numerical data
