 point estimate(s) Explanation:There are two major types of estimates: point estimates and interval estimates. A point estimate consists of a single sample statistic that is used to estimate the true population parameter. For example, the sample mean X bar is a point estimate of the population mean mu sub x, and the sample variance s2 is a point estimate of the population variance sigma2 sub x. The above was taken straight out of a college-level text on statistics. I won't bother to go into a definition of interval estimates, since your term obviously relates to points. HTH!
