Chapter 1A

Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.

1) Define the terms population, sample, parameter and statistic. How does a census compare to a sample?

A population is the complete collection of all elements. A sample is a subset of elements drawn from a population. A parameter is a numerical measurement describing some characteristic of a population. A statistic is a numerical measurement describing some characteristic of a sample. A census is the collection of data from every element in a population; a sample is a subset of a population.

MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. Identify the number as either continuous or discrete.

2) The total number of phone calls a sales representative makes in a month is 425.
○ Continuous
● Discrete

3) The number of limbs on a 2-year-old oak tree is 21.

Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question.

Identify the sample and population. Also, determine whether the sample is likely to be representative of the population.

6) In a poll of 50,000 randomly selected college students, 74% answered “yes” when asked “Do you have a television in your dorm room?”.

Sample: the 50,000 selected college students; population: all college students; representative

Use critical thinking to develop an alternative conclusion.
7) A study shows that adults who work at their desk all day weigh more than those who do not.
Conclusion: Desk jobs cause people to gain weight.

Desk job workers are confined to their chairs for most of their work day. Other jobs require standing or walking around which burns calories. It is probably the lack of exercise that causes higher weights, not the desk job itself. Avoid causality altogether by saying lack of walking and exercise is associated with higher weights.

Use critical thinking to address the key issue.

8) A questionnaire is sent to 10,000 persons. 5,000 responded to the questionnaire. 3,000 of the respondents say that they “love chocolate ice cream”. We conclude that 60% of people love chocolate ice cream. What is wrong with this survey?

This is not a random sample. The survey is based on voluntary, self-selected responses and therefore has serious potential for bias.

9) A researcher wished to gauge public opinion on gun control. He randomly selected 1000 people from among registered voters and asked them the following question: “Do you believe that gun control laws which restrict the ability of Americans to protect their families should be eliminated?”. Identify the abuse of statistics and suggest a way the researcher’s methods could be improved.

The question is loaded. A more neutral way to phrase the question would be, for example, “Do you believe that gun control laws should be strengthened, weakened, or left in their current form?”.

MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. Perform the requested conversions. Round decimals to the nearest thousandth and percents to the nearest tenth of a percent, if necessary.

Is the study experimental or observational?

12) A marketing firm does a survey to find out how many people use a product. Of the one hundred people contacted, fifteen said they use the product.
○ Experimental
● Observational

13) A clinic gives a drug to a group of ten patients and a placebo to another group of ten patients to find out if the drug has an effect on the patients’ illness.
○ Observational
● Experimental

Identify the type of observational study.

14) A statistical analyst obtains data about ankle injuries by examining a hospital’s records from the
past 3 years.
● Retrospective
○ Cross-sectional
○ Prospective
○ None of these

Identify which of these types of sampling is used: random, stratified, systematic, cluster, convenience.

15) A tax auditor selects every 1000th income tax return that is received.
○ Random
● Systematic
○ Convenience
○ Cluster
E) Stratified

● Stratified
○ Cluster
○ Convenience
○ Systematic
E) Random

Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.

17) Define random sample. Explain why this is important in design of experiments.

In random sampling, each member of the population has an equal chance of being selected. Random sampling provides us with the best representative sample in which all groups of the population are approximately proportionately represented. Careless sampling can easily result in a biased sample which may be useless

18) Define sampling error and nonsampling error. Give examples of nonsampling error.

Sampling error is the difference between a sample result and the true population result. Such an error results from chance sample fluctuations. A nonsampling error occurs when the sample data are incorrectly collected, recorded, or analyzed. Examples include nonrandom samples, defective measuring instruments, biased survey questions, a large number of refusals, copying sample data incorrectly.

19) A market researcher obtains a sample of 50 people by standing outside a store and asking every 20th person who enters the store to fill out a survey until she has 50 people. What sampling method is being used here? Will the resulting sample be a random sample? Will it be a simple random sample? Explain your thinking.

This is systematic sampling. The sample obtained will be a random sample because everyone has the same chance of being chosen but will not be a simple random sample as different samples of 50 people have different chances of being chosen. Specifically, the sample is random because each person has one chance in twenty of being selected. The sample is not simple random because different samples of size 50 by this design have different chances of being selected due to the numbers of people arriving at the store at different times.

20) Explain the difference between stratified and cluster sampling.

In both cluster sampling and stratified sampling, sub-groups (clusters or strata) are formed. However, in stratified sampling, all strata are used and a sample is selected from each strata. In cluster sampling, a sample of the clusters is first selected, then all members of those clusters are selected.

6) 100,000 randomly selected adults were asked whether they drink at least 48 oz of water each day and only 45% said yes.

Use critical thinking to develop an alternative conclusion.

7) In a study of headache patients, every one of the study subjects with a headache was found to be mproved after taking a week off of work. Conclusion: Taking time off work cures headaches.

Headaches generally last for only a few hours, so anything would seem like a cure. There is no evidence to suggest that taking time off work will cure a headache.

Use critical thinking to address the key issue.

8) A researcher published this survey result: “74% of people would be willing to spend 10 percent more for energy from a non-polluting source”.

The survey question was announced on a national radio show and 1,200 listeners responded by calling in. What is wrong with this survey?
This is not a random sample. The survey is based on voluntary, self-selected responses and therefore has serious potential for bias.

9) “38% of adults in the United States regularly visit a doctor”. This conclusion was reached by a college student after she had questioned 520 randomly selected members of her college. What is wrong with her survey?

The sample is biased. College students are not representative of the U.S. population as a whole.

The sample was too small

Provide an appropriate response.

18) List five different abuses of statistics and give examples for each.

Answers will vary but include small samples, precise numbers, guesstimates, distorted percentages, partial picture, deliberate distortions, loaded questions, misleading graphs, misleading pictographs, pollster pressure, or bad samples. Examples will vary.

19) A teacher at a school obtains a sample of students by selecting a random sample of 20 students from each grade. What kind of sampling is being used here? Will the resulting sample be a simple random sample of the population of students at the school? Explain your thinking.

This is stratified sampling. The sample obtained will not be a simple random sample because different samples of students have different chances of being selected. Specifically, it would not be possible to select samples of the same size with students in different grades.

20) At a school there are two different math classes of the same age. The two classes have different teachers. The school principal is interested in gauging the effectiveness of two different teaching methods and asks each teacher to try one of the methods. At the end of the semester both classes are given the same test and the results are compared. In this experiment, what is the variable of interest? Give some examples of variables which could be confounding variables.

The variable of interest is the teaching method. Possible confounding variables are “skill of teacher” (is one teacher better than the other?), “aptitude of students” (do the two classes have students of the same ability?), “amount of study time” (does one class have students who are more conscientious?).

Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Define continuous and discrete data and give an example of each.

Continuous numerical data result from infinitely many possible values that can be associated with points on a continuous scale so that there are no gaps or interruptions. Discrete data result from either a finite number of possible values or a countable number of possible values. Examples will vary.

MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question.

6) An employee at the local ice cream parlor asks three customers if they like chocolate ice cream.
Sample: the 3 selected customers; population: all customers; not representative

Use critical thinking to address the key issue.

7) You plan to make a survey of 200 people. The plan is to talk to every 10th person coming out of the school library. Is there a problem with your plan?

People who don’t go to the library are excluded.

8) A national television channel posted the result of their web poll: “63 percent of Americans favor changing from gasoline to hydrogen fuel for cars.” The survey question had been available for three days and 50,000 viewers responded. Should we conclude that hydrogen-powered cars are favored by a majority of Americans? Explain.

This is not a random sample. The survey is based on voluntary, self-selected responses and therefore has serious potential for bias, because the result should not be generalized to all Americans.

9) A company accused of downsizing workers defended itself with the following statement: “Yes, we were forced to lay off 20% of our workforce last year, but this year we increased our workforce by 20%, and we therefore now have the same number of employees as before the layoff.” What is the flaw in this argument?

Answers will vary. Possible answer: This is a misleading use of percentages, as 20% of the reduced workforce is smaller than 20% of the original workforce. The company therefore did not hire as many new workers as it originally laid off. The size of the current workforce is therefore smaller than the size of the workforce before the layoffs.

MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question.
Perform the requested conversions. Round decimals to the nearest thousandth and percents to the nearest tenth of a percent, if necessary.

10) Convert 1.2 to an equivalent fraction and percent.

Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.

17) Describe a double blind experiment and explain why blinding is used. Define the term “placebo effect” as part of the answer.

A double blind experiment is one in which neither the subjects nor the researchers know who is getting the treatment. Blinding is when the subject does not know whether he or she is receiving a treatment or a placebo. Blinding is used to counteract the placebo effect in which an untreated subject believes he or she is receiving a treatment and reports an improvement in symptoms due to this belief.

18) Define observational study and experiment. Define the terms “treatment group” and “control group” as part of your answer.

In an observational study, we observe and measure specific characteristics, but we don’t attempt to manipulate or modify the subjects being studied. In an experiment we apply some treatment and then proceed to observe its effects on the subjects. In the experiment, the group receiving the treatment is called the treatment group. The control group is the group that is not given the treatment.

This is cluster sampling. The sample obtained will not be a simple random sample of all high school teachers in the district because different samples have different chances of being selected due to varying numbers of teachers in different schools.

19) A researcher obtains a sample of high school teachers in his school district by randomly selecting 10 high schools and interviewing all the teachers at each of these 10 schools. What kind of sampling is being used here? Will the resulting sample be a simple random sample of the population of teachers in the school district? Explain your thinking.

20) Explain what is meant by the term “confounding” and give an example of an experiment in which confounding is likely to be a problem.
Confounding occurs in an experiment when the effects of two or more variables cannot be distinguished from each other.

Examples will vary.

Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Identify as many similarities and differences that you can find.
1) Suppose that a data set has a minimum value of 28 and a maximum value of 73 and that you want 5 classes. Explain how to find the class width for this frequency distribution. What happens if you mistakenly use a class width of 9 instead of 10?

For the given data, the class width is 9, since that value is the range, 73 – 28, divided by the number of classes. However, the quotient should always be rounded up, even when a whole number results. If 9 were mistakenly used as the class width, the last datum, which is 73, would be cut off the distribution because the upper limit of the fifth class is 72. More data would be cut off, if the class start was below
28.

20) Describe any similarities or differences in the two distributions represented by the following boxplots. Assume the two boxplots have the same scale.

Let the boxplot on the left represent distribution A; boxplot on the right, distribution B. Distribution A is uniform; distribution B is skewed to the left. Distribution A has a higher maximum value. Distribution B has a lower minimum value. The median of distribution B exceeds that of A. Both interquartile ranges are the same, implying the variation among the middle 50% of values of each distribution is the same. There are no outliers for either distribution, but distribution B shows more variation.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Identify as many similarities and differences that you can find.
1) Suppose you are comparing frequency data for two different groups, 25 managers and 150 blue collar workers. Why would a relative frequency distribution be better than a frequency distribution?

Answers will vary depending on examples given. However, since 150 is six times 25, relative frequencies adjust for the extreme difference in sample sizes.

2) Without calculating the standard deviation, compare the standard deviation for the following three data sets. (Note: All data sets have a mean of 30.) Which do you expect to have the largest standard deviation and which do you expect to have the smallest standard deviation? Explain your answers in terms of the formula

30, 30, 30, 30, 30, 30, 30, 30, 30, 30
20, 25, 25, 30, 30, 30, 30, 35, 35, 40
20, 20, 20, 25, 25, 35, 35, 40, 40, 40

Since the standard deviation measures average spread from the mean, the first data set, which shows no variation, has the smallest standard deviation, zero. The last data set would have the most variation because the mean is not in the set, and the values are more spread out from 30 in comparison to the middle data set where four values equal 30.

Solve the problem.

Các câu hỏi trắc nghiệm + tự luận của phần 2C bao gồm: SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response. 1) One purpose of displaying data graphically is to provide clues about trends. The given values are weights (ounces) of steaks listed on a restaurant menu as “20 ounce porterhouse” steaks. The weights are supposed to be 21 ounces because they supposedly lose an ounce when cooked. Create a frequency distribution with 5 classes. Based on your distribution, comment on the advertised “20 ounce” steaks. 17 20 21 18 20 20 20 18 19 19 20 19 21 20 18 20 20 19 18 19 Answers will vary. Yet, the focus is as follows.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Sometimes probabilities derived by the relative frequency method differ from the probabilities expected from classical probability methods. How does the law of large numbers apply in this situation?

The law of large numbers states that as an experiment is repeated again and again, the relative frequency probabilities tend to approach the actual probabilities expected from the classical approach.

2) Interpret the symbol P(B|A) and explain what is meant by the expression. What do we know if P(B|A) is not the same as P(B)?

This is the symbol for conditional probability and means the probability of event B occurring given that A has occurred. A and B are not independent

3) Consider the following formulas:

Given the same values for n and r in each formula, which is the smaller value, P or C? How does this relate to the concept of counting the number of outcomes based on whether or not order is a criterion?

The combination value will be smaller, since order is not important. For example, ABC is equivalent to ACB and would not be counted twice. If, however, r is 0 or 1 then nPr = nCr.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Compare probabilities and odds. How can you convert odds to probabilities?

Probabilities compare the number of occurrences of an event A to the total number of outcomes. Odds compare the number of occurrences of event A to the number of occurrences of the complement of event A. If the odds for A are 13:6, then P(A) = 13/19 since there would be a total of 19 outcomes (13 + 6).

2) List two reasons it is better to sample without replacement when testing batches of products.
When sampling without replacement, should you use the multiplication rule for independent or dependent events? Explain your answer.

The two reasons include the lower chance of getting only good items when some defects are present, and sampling with replacement might allow you to test the same item more than once which would be inefficient. You should use the multiplication rule for dependent events, since the sample space has diminished and the probability of choosing a second good item has gotten smaller.

3) Suppose a student is taking a 5-response multiple choice exam; that is, the choices are A, B, C, D, and E, with only one of the responses correct. Describe the complement method for determining the probability of getting at least one of the questions correct on the 15-question exam. Why would the complement method be the method of choice for this problem?

P(at least one correct) = 1 – P(none are correct). The alternative to the complement method is to find P(1), P(2),…P(15) and take this sum. This method is too time consuming and too difficult.

(a) Find the probability that a randomly selected T.V. will have a replacement time between 6.5 and 9.5 years. (b) Find the probability that a randomly selected T.V. will have a replacement time between 9.5 and 10.5 years. These two problems can be solved by the same procedure. Draw the diagram for each and discuss the difference. Then, explain why the same procedure can be used. For problem (a), the probability is 0.8204. For problem (b), the probability is 0.1007. The diagram for (a) shows the union of areas on both sides of the mean; the diagram for (b) shows an area to the right of the mean. Both problems can be solved by the same procedure: find the equivalent z score and associated area, i.e., probability, for each x value; subtract the smaller area from the larger area. Table A-2 facilitates this common procedure because it provides cumulative areas from the left for both negative and positive z scores. 2) The typical computer random-number generator yields numbers in a uniform distribution between 0 and 1 with a mean of 0.500 and a standard deviation of 0.289.

Their distribution will be normal. The probability is 0.0001. Problem (b) cannot be solved by the Central Limit theorem, because the sample size is smaller than 30 and the parent population is not normal. Their distribution will not be normal. MULTIPLE CHOICE.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Lengths of pregnancies are normally distributed with a mean of 268 days and a standard deviation of 15 days. (a) Find the probability of a pregnancy lasting more than 250 days. (b) Find the probability of a pregnancy lasting more than 280 days. These two problems can be solved by the same procedure. Draw the diagram for each and discuss the difference. Then, explain why the same procedure can be used.

For problem (a), the probability is 0.8849. For problem (b), the probability is 0.2119. The drawings show that the area, i.e., probability, for (a) begins to the left of the mean and extends to positive infinity; for (b) the area begins to the right of the mean and extends to positive infinity. The procedure is the same, which is: find the equivalent z score for the given x value, then find the area associated with that z score, and subtract that area from 1.0000. Table A-2 facilitates this common procedure because it provides cumulative areas from the left for both negative and positive z scores.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Define margin of error. Explain the relation between the confidence interval and the error estimate. Suppose a confidence interval is 9.65 < μ < 11.35. Find the sample mean ¯x¯ and the error estimate E.

The margin of error is the maximum likely difference between the observed sample mean x¯ and the true value for the population mean μ. The confidence interval is found by taking the sample mean ¯x and adding the margin of error E to find the high value and subtracting E to find the low value of the interval. In the interval 9.65 < μ < 11.35, the sample mean ¯x is 10.5 and the error estimate E is 0.85.

2) When determining the sample size for a desired margin of error, the formula is n=z2α/2^p^qE2. Based on this formula, discuss the fact that sample size is not dependent on the population size; that is, it is not necessary to sample a particular percent of the population.

As shown in the formula, the appropriate sample size is dependent on the appropriate z score, the sample proportion, and the margin of error, not on N, the population size.

3) When determining sample size we need to know ^p. If we have no prior information, what are two methods that can be used?

Use a result from a prior study or use ^p = 0.5.

4) Why would manufacturers and businesses be interested in constructing a confidence interval for the population variance? Would manufacturers and businesses want large or small variances?

For many populations, the distribution of sample means has less variation than other measures of central tendency.

Sample means tend to center about the population mean, not to systematically overestimate or underestimate μ.

2) Interpret the following 95% confidence interval for mean weekly salaries of shift managers at Guiseppe’s Pizza and Pasta. 325.80 < μ < 472.30

We are 95% sure that the interval contains the true population value for mean weekly salaries of shift managers at Guiseppe’s Pizza and Pasta.

3) What is the best point estimate for the population proportion? Explain why that point estimate is best.

The sample proportion p ^.
– p^ is unbiased (does not consistently overestimate or underestimate p).
– ^p is most consistent (has the least variation of all the measures of central tendency).

4) Draw a diagram of the chi-square distribution. Discuss its shape and values.

The chi-square distribution is non-symmetric and skewed to the right. The values are 0 and positive. The sketch should resemble one of the drawings in Figure 6-8 or Figure 6-9.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) How do you determine whether to use the z or t distribution in computing the margin of error,

Use the normal (z) distribution if the population SD is known and the population is normally distributed or if the population SD is known and the sample size exceeds 30. Use the t distribution if the population SD is unknown and the population is normally distributed or if the population SD is unknown and the sample size exceeds 30

2) The Bide-a-While efficiency hotel, which caters to business workers who stay for extended periods of time (weeks or months), offers room service. In a small study of 35 randomly selected room service orders, the 95% confidence interval for mean delivery time for room service is 24.8 < μ < 29.6 minutes. The marketing director is trying to determine if she can advertise “room service in under 30 minutes, or the order is free.” How would you advise her?

We are 95% sure that the interval 24.8 < μ < 29.6 minutes contains the true mean. But it is incorrect to say mhas a 95% chance of falling within the specific limits of 24.8 and 29.6 minutes. Therefore, it would not be advisable to advertise room service in under 30 minutes

3) Explain how confidence intervals might be used to make decisions. Give an example to clarify your explanation.

Answers will vary, but for example: Suppose we have a confidence interval of 0.456 < μ < 0.462 for the
mean diameter of washers being being machined by the night shift of a plant. If the mean diameter is supposed to be 0.470, we can conclude that the process needs to be adjusted.

1) Under what conditions do you reject H0? Discuss both the traditional and the p-value approach.

2) What do you conclude about the claim below? Do not use formal procedures or exact calculations. Use only the rare event rule and make a subjective estimate to determine whether the event is likely.

Claim: An employee of a company is equally likely to take a sick day on any day of the week. Last year, the total number of sick days taken by all the employees of the company was 143. Of these, 52 were Mondays, 14 were Tuesdays, 17 were Wednesdays, 17 were Thursdays, and 43 were Fridays.

If the employees were equally likely to take sick days on any day of the week, the probability of obtaining such a distribution of sick days would be extremely small. Therefore, by the rare event rule, we conclude that the claim that an employee of the company is equally likely to take a sick day on any day of the week is probably not correct.

3) Write the claim that is suggested by given statement, then write a conclusion about the claim. Do not use symbolic expressions or formal procedures; use commond sense.

Last year an appliance manufacturer received many complaints about the high rate of defects among its washing machines. Approximately 9% of the machines were defective in some way. This year the company tightened up its quality control procedures. The lastet shipment of 250 washing machines contained 2 defectives.

The claim is that the defect rate has decreased and is now less than 9%. If the overall defect rate were still 9%, it would be extremely unlikely that a shipment of 250 washing machines would contain as few as 2 defectives. Therefore, the claim that the defect rate has decreased is probably correct.

9) Suppose that you perform a hypothesis test regarding a population mean, and that the evidence does not warrant rejection of null hypothesis. When formulating the conclusion to the test, why is the phrase “fail to reject the null hypothesis” more accurate than the phrase “accept the null hypothesis”?

In a hypothesis test, we do not prove the null hypothesis; we just determine whether we have sufficent evidence to reject the null hypothesis. If there is not sufficent evidence, this does not neccessarily imply that the null hypothesis is true but that we don’t have enough evidence to reject it.

Indentify the null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test statistics, p-value, conclusion about the null hypothesis, and final conclusion that address the orginal claim.

9) Suppose that you wish to use a hypothesis test to test a claim made by a juice bottling company regarding the mean amount of juice in its 16 oz bottles. Why does the orginal claim sometimes become the null hypothesis, and why does it sometimes become the alternative hypothesis? Give an example of a claim which would become the null hypothesis and an example of a claim would become the alternative hypothesis.

The null hypothesis must always contain the condition of equality. If the orginal claim contains equality, it becomes the null hypothesis, if it does not contain equality, it becomes the alternative hypothesis. Examples of claim will be vary. A claim such as “the mean is 16 oz” will become the null hypothesis while a claim such as “the mean is greater than 16 oz” will become alternative hypothesis.

Provide an appropriate response.

1) When testing hypothesis about a mean, the decision must be made as to the distribution to be used. Discuss the decision process used to decide whether z or t or neither is the proper distribution.

Use the z distribution for n ≤≤ 30, if the parent population is normally distributed and σσ is known; or for n > 30, if σσ is known. Use the t distribution for n ≤≤ 30, if the parent population is normally distributed and σσ is not known; or for n > 30 if σσ is not known. However, if the parent population is not normally distributed and n ≤≤ 30, neither distribution should be use.

Claim: A company claims that the proportion of defectives among a particular model of computers is 4%. In a shipment of 200 such computers, there are 10 defectives.

If the defective rate were really 4%, one could easily obatained 10 defectives among 200 computers by change; this is not improbable. Therefore, by the rare event rule, we have no reason to reject the claim that the rate of defectives is 4%.

3) Write the claim that is suggested by the given statement, then write a conclusion about the claim. Do not use symbolic expressions or formal procedures; use common sense.

Of a group of 1000 people suffering from arthritis, 500 receive acupuncture treatment and 500 receive a placebo. Among those in the placebo group, 24% noticed an improvement, while of those receiving acupuncture, 44% noticed an improvement.

The claim is the proportion who notice an improvement in the treatment group is greater than the proportion who notice an improvement in the placebo group, i.e., that acupuncture is more effective than a placebo. If the acupuncture treatment and the placebo were equally effective, it would be very unlikely that the percentage of people in the group who notice an improvement in the acupuncture group would be so much greater than the percentage of the people who notice an improvement in the placebo group. The claim that acupuncture is more effective than a placebo therefore senses reasonable.

1) Compare the technique for decision making about populations using the hypothesis test method and the confidence interval method.

In the hypothesis test method, the comparison is made between a test statistic from the sample data and the critical value from the table. The conclusion is either to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis based on whether or not the test statistic is in the reject region. With the confidence interval method, the confidence interval is constructed and the population mean is compared against the interval. The conclusion is made based on whether or not the population mean is within the confidence interval.

1) Suppose data are collected concerning the weight of a person in pounds and the number of calories burned in 30 minutes of walking on a treadmill at 3.5 mph. How would the value of the correlation coefficient, r, change if all of the weights were converted to kilograms?

The value of r would remain the same as a change of scale does not affect the value of r.

2) Suppose that statisticians determine that there is a significant positive correlation between the grade earned in the class College Reading Skills and the grade earned in Statistics. Does achieving a high grade in reading cause an individual to earn a high grade in Statistics? Explain your answer with reference to the term lurking variable.

A high grade in the College Reading Skills class does not necessarily cause a high grade in Statistics. These two variables could be related by an underlying relationship. Students who earn high grades in one class tend to earn high grades in other classes perhaps because of a lurking variable — for example, motivation to achieve.

18) A visitor to Yellowstone National Park sat down one day and observed Old Faithful, which faithfully spurts throughout the day, day in and day out. He surmised that the height of a given spurt was caused by the pressure build-up during the interval between spurts and by the momentum build-up during the duration of the spurt. He wrote down the data to test his hypothesis, but he didn’t know what to do with his data. Can you help him out with his theory? Interpret the statistics.

In the order requested by the question, the answers are: .025, -.060, and .750. The negative adjusted coefficient of determination and the high P-value indicate that the variation in height cannot be explained by pressure build-up during the intervals and duration of the spurt.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) When testing to determine if linear correlation is significant, we use the hypothesis H0: ρρ = 0. H1: ρρ ≠ 0. What does the the symbol r represent? Explain the meaning for the null and alternative hypotheses.

The symbol r represents the population correlation as opposed to the sample correlation r. The null hypothesis means that the population correlation is 0; that is, there is no significant linear correlation between the two variables. The alternative hypothesis states that there is significant linear correlation.

2) Discuss the guidelines under which the linear regression equation should be used for prediction. Refer to the correlation coefficient, the type of data used to create the linear regression, and the predicting value.

The linear regression equation should be used only if the correlation is significant. Provided the correlation is significant, the linear regression equation should be used only when the predicting value x is within the scope of the data used to create the equation.

3) Define the term independent, or predictor, variable and the term dependent, or response, variable. Give examples for each.

The independent variable is x, representing values we will use for the prediction; the dependent variable is y, representing values we want to predict based on the values of the independent variable. Examples will vary.

1) In the chi-square test of independence, the formula used is Discuss the meaning of O and E and explain the circumstances under which the c2 values will be smaller or larger. What is the relationship between a significant c2 value and the values of O and E?

The O represents the observed frequencies. The E represents the expected frequencies based on the assumption of independence. The c2value will be smaller when the difference between observed and expected frequencies is small and will be larger when the difference between observed and expected values is large. The c2value will be significant when there is a significant difference between the observed and expected values.

2) Explain the computation of expected values for contingency tables in terms of probabilities. Refer to the assumptions of the null hypothesis as part of your explanation. You might give a brief example to illustrate.

Suppose A and B are two categories in a contingency table. In probability computations, the P(A and B) would be computed as P(A)œP(B), provided A and B are independent. The assumption of the null hypothesis is that A and B are in fact independent, so we use the formula P(A and B) = P(A).P(B)

Since P(A) = (# occurrences A)/(total occurrences)
and P(B) = (# occurrences B) /(total occurrences), then
P(A and B) = [(# occurrences A)/(total occurrences)].[(# occurrences B)/(total occurrences)]

Then the expected number of outcomes for A and B would be
P(A and B).(total occurrences) = [(# occurrences A)/(total occurrences)].[(# occurrences B)/(total occurrences0].[total occurrences] or P(A and B).(total occurrences) = [(# occurrences A).(# occurrences B)]/(total occurrences)
This is also the formula for the expected frequency for each cell in a contingency table,
E = [(# occurrences A).(# occurrences B)]/(total occurrences)

So the computation of the expected values is based on the assumption of independence. Examples may be given and will vary.

3) Draw an example of a representative chi-square distribution and discuss three characteristics of a chi-square distribution. Show an example of the special case of the chi-square distribution for only 1 or 2 degrees of freedom.

Any drawing such as that shown in Figure 10-1 will suffice. The chi-square distribution is not symmetric. The values of a chi-square distribution can be 0 or positive, but they cannot be negative. The chi-square distribution is different for each number of degrees of freedom. Examples will vary. Possibilities are a 2 x 2 contingency table for one degree of freedom and a goodness-of-fit test of three categories for two degrees of freedom.

ANOVA Table

Since P = 0.3958 for the interaction, you fail to reject the null hypothesis that there is no effect due to the
interaction. Yes, it is appropriate to see if there is a significant effect due to either A or B. The P-value
for B is P = 0.0001, which rejects the null hypothesis that there is no effect due to B. The means for B are
not all the same.

Assume that incomes are not affected by an interaction between gender and level of education, and test the null hypothesis that gender has no effect on income. Use a 0.05 significance level.

H0: Gender has no effect on income. H1: Gender has an effect on income. The test statistic is F = 0.155591, and the corresponding P-value is 0.697883. Because the P-value is greater than 0.05, we fail to reject the null hypothesis that gender has no effect on income.

16) The following data contains task completion times, in minutes, categorized according to the gender of the machine operator and the machine used.

Assume that two-way ANOVA is used to analyze the data. How are the ANOVA results affected if 5 minutes is added to each completion time?

The ANOVA results are not affected by adding 5 minutes to each completion time.
The null hypothesis of no interaction between machine and gender is not rejected since the P-value is 0.946. The null hypothesis of no effect from machine is rejected since the P-value is 0.013. The null hypothesis of no effect from gender is not rejected since the P-value is 0.382.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Suppose you are to test for equality of four different means, with H0 : . Write the hypotheses for the paired tests. Use methods of probability to explain why the process of ANOVA has a higher degree of confidence than testing each of the pairs separately.

The six paired hypotheses are \mu_{A}=\mu_{B}, \mu_{A}=\mu_{C}, \mu_{A}=\mu_{D}, \mu_{C}=\mu_{B} \mu_{D}=\mu_{B}, \mu_{C}=\mu_{D}. Suppose we test
each with a 5% significance level (95% confidence level). Then, the degree of confidence for all six would
be 0.95% or 0.735, yielding an excessively high risk of a type I error. ANOVA maintains the 5% significance level while testing equivalence of all four means.

2) Define the term “treatment”. What other term means the same thing? Give an example.

H0: There is no track effect. H1: There is a track effect. The P-value is 0.00763, which is less than 0.05.
We reject the null hypothesis; it appears that the track does effect the racing times.

13) The following table entries are test scores for males and females at different times of day. Assuming no effect from the interaction between gender and test time, test the claim that time of day does not affect test scores. Use a 0.05 significance level.

H0: There is no effect due to the time of day. H1: There is an effect due to the time of day. The

Should you test to see if there is a significant effect due to either A or B? If the answer is yes, is there a significant effect due to either A or B?
ANOVA Table

Since P = 0.0031 for the interaction, you reject the null hypothesis that there is no effect due to the interaction. No, it is not appropriate to see if there is a significant effect due to either A or B. Do not consider the effects of either factor without considering the effects of the other.

Assume that two-way ANOVA is used to analyze the data. How are the ANOVA results affected if the first sample value in the first cell is changed to 30 minutes?

If the first sample value is changed to 30 minutes, the ANOVA results are changed. The null hypothesis of no interaction between machine and gender is still not rejected. The null hypothesis of no effect from gender is still not rejected. However, the null hypothesis of no effect from machine is now accepted instead of rejected.
Before the change, the F test statistic = 9.7222. After the change, the F statistic = 2.5956. The F critical
value at (2,6), α = 0.05 is 5.1433.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) List the assumptions for testing hypotheses that three or more means are equivalent.

1) The populations have approximately normal distributions.
2) The populations have the same variance σ2σ2 (or standard deviation σσ).
3) The samples are random and independent of each other.
4) The different samples are from populations that are categorized in only one way. (The requirements of normality and equal variances are somewhat relaxed.)

2) The test statistic for one-way ANOVA is F = (variance between samples)/(variance within samples). Describe variance within samples and variance between samples. What relationship between variance within samples and variance between samples would result in the conclusion that the value of F is significant?

Variance between samples measures the variation between the sample means of the groups treated differently, that is the variation due to the treatment. The variance within the samples depends solely on the sample variances of the groups treated alike. The F ratio compares the two. If the F ratio is relatively close to 1, the two variances are about the same, and we conclude that there are no significant differences among the sample means. When the value of F is excessively large (that is, greater than 1), we conclude that the variation among the samples is not the same and that the means are not equal.

ii) Use the ANOVA method with a 0.05 significance level to test the same claim.
iii) Verify that the squares of the t test statistic and the critical value are equal to the F test statistic and critical value.

i) An F test of homogeneity of variance suggests equal population variances. The F test statistic =
1.3349; the F critical value = 9.6045. Therefore, the pooled variance model applies. Since t = 1.315 < t0.025(8) = 2.306, accept the claim that the two samples come from populations with the same means.
ii) Since F = 1.73 < F0.05(1, 8) = 5.32, accept the claim that the two samples come from populations with
the same means.
iii) t2 = 1.315^2 = 1.73 = F and t0.025(8)^2= 2.306^2 = 5.32 = F0.05(1, 8)

H0: Education level has no effect on income. H1: Education level has an effect on income. The test statistic is F = 41.26823, and the corresponding P-value is 0.000000189. Because the P-value is less than 0.05, we reject the null hypothesis that education level has no effect on income. It appears that education level does have an effect on income.

16) The following data contains task completion times, in minutes, categorized according to the gender of the machine operator and the machine used.

Assume that two-way ANOVA is used to analyze the data. How are the ANOVA results affected if the times are converted to hours?

The ANOVA results are not affected by converting the times to hours. The null hypothesis of no interaction between machine and gender is not rejected since the P-value is 0.946. The null hypothesis of no effect from machine is rejected since the P-value is 0.013. The null hypothesis of no effect from gender is not rejected since the P-value is 0.382.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Describe the runs test for randomness. What types of hypotheses is it used to test? Does the runs test measure frequency? What is the underlying concept?

The runs test for randomness is a procedure for testing the randomness of data (with only two characteristics) using the concepts of runs. A run is a sequence of data that exhibit the same characteristic. For example, the data set M M M M M F F F M M F F F F has four runs. The null hypothesis is that the sequence is random and the alternate hypothesis is that the sequence is not random. The runs test is based only on the order in which the data occur; it does not test the frequency of the data. The underlying concept is that if the number of runs is very low or very high, randomness is lacking.

2) Describe the Wilcoxon signed-ranks test. What types of hypotheses is it used to test? What assumptions are made for this test?

The Wilcoxon signed-ranks test is similar to the sign test, but it looks at the magnitude as well as the signs of the differences, and thus has a higher efficiency level than the signs test. The test is used to test claims about differences between two dependent (paired) samples. The Wilcoxon signed-ranks test assumes that the population of the differences (found from the pairs of data) has a distribution that is approximately symmetric and that the pairs have been randomly selected.

Use the sign test to test the indicated claim.
3) A standard aptitude test is given to several randomly selected programmers, and the scores are given below for the mathematics and verbal portions of the test. Use the sign test to test the claim that programmers do better on the mathematics portion of the test. Use a 0.05 level of significance.

H0: The math scores are equal to or less than the verbal scores.
H1: The math scores are greater than the verbal scores.
Test statistic: x = 0. Critical value: x = 1.
Reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that the math scores are greater than the verbal scores.

4) A researcher wishes to study whether a particular diet is effective in helping people to lose weight. 92 randomly selected adults were weighed before starting the diet and again after following the diet for one month. 50 people lost weight, 40 gained weight, and 2 observed no change in their weight. At the 0.01 significance level, test the claim that the diet is effective.
Use the Wilcoxon signed-ranks test to test the claim that both samples come from populations having the same distribution.
H0: the diet is not effective. H1: the diet is effective.
Convert x = 40 to the test statistic z = -0.95. Critical value: z = -2.33.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis. There is not sufficient evidence to support the claim that the diet is effective.

7) In the sign test procedure the most common approach to handling ties is to exclude the ties. A second approach is to treat half the 0s (representing ties) as positive signs and half as negative signs. In this approach, if the number of ties is odd, one tie is excluded so that they can be divided equally. In a sign test for matched pairs with a claim that the median of the differences is equal to zero, there are 36 positive signs, 56 negative signs, and 23 ties. Identify the test statistic and conclusion for the two different methods. Use a significance level of 0.05.

Approach 1:
Test statistic: z = -1.98, Critical values: z = ±1.96.
Reject the null hypothesis that the median of the differences is zero.
Approach 2:
Test statistic: z = -1.78, Critical values: z = ±1.96.
Do not reject the null hypothesis that the median of the differences is zero.

Use a Kruskal-Wallis test to test the claim that the samples come from identical populations.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Describe the sign test. What types of hypotheses is it used to test? What is the underlying concept?

The sign test compares the signs (negative or positive) of the differences for data sets, ignoring any ties resulting in a difference of zero. The sign test can be used to test claims involving two dependent samples, claims involving nominal data, and claims about the median of a single population. The underlying concept is that if two sets of data have equal medians, the number of positive signs should be approximately equal to the number of negative signs.

2) Describe the Wilcoxon rank-sum test. What type of hypotheses is it used to test? What assumptions are made for this test? What is the underlying concept?

The Wilcoxon rank-sum test looks at ranks but not signs for the data points. The test is used to test claims about the differences between two independent samples. The assumptions include: two randomly selected independent samples; testing the null hypothesis that the two independent samples come from the same distribution; and more than 10 scores in each of the samples. The underlying principle is that if two samples are drawn from identical populations and the individual scores are all ranked as one combined collection of values, then the high and low ranks should fall evenly between the two samples. For example, if low ranks are found predominantly in one sample with the high ranks in the other, then we suspect that the two samples are not identical.

Use the sign test to test the indicated claim.

H0: the music has no effect on memorization skills.
H1: the music has an effect on memorization skills.
Convert x = 22 to the test statistic z = -4.58. Critical values: z = ±1.96.
Reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to warrant rejection of the claim that music has no effect on memorization skills

Use a significance level of 0.05. Be sure to state the hypotheses, the value of the test statistic, the critical values, and your conclusion.

H0:The sample comes from a population with a median of 130 pounds.
H1:The sample comes from a population with a median different from 130 pounds.
Test statistic: T = 32.5
Critical value: 14

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Describe the Kruskal-Wallis test. What types of hypotheses is it used to test? What assumptions are made for this test?

The Kruskal-Wallis test sums ranks for the sample data ranked as a whole. However, the Kruskal-Wallis test is used to test claims about the differences in means among three or more independent samples, as opposed to the Wilcoxon rank-sum test which looks at claims for two independent samples. The assumptions include: there are at least three random samples; we want to test the null hypothesis that the samples come from the same or identical populations; and each sample has at least five observations.

2) Describe the rank correlation test. What types of hypotheses is it used to test? How does the rank correlation coefficient rs differ from the correlation coefficient r found in Chapter 9?

The rank correlation test uses ranks to measure the strength of the relation between two variables. The rank correlation test is used to test the null hypothesis that there is no correlation between the two variables. In Chapter 9, the correlation coefficient rwas linear. The rank correlation rs, also known as Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient, detects relationships which are non-linear as well as linear.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) A common goal of quality control is to reduce variation in a product or service. List and describe the two types of variability. Give an example of each.
Random variation is due to chance, the variation inherent in any process that is not capable of producing each good or service exactly the same way every time. Assignable variation results from causes that can be identified. Examples may vary.
2) Relate the concept of control charts to the concept of confidence intervals from Chapter 6.
Control charts have upper control limits and lower control limits found by processes similar to those in Chapter 6 for finding confidence intervals. Control charts allow us to examine processes to see if they remain within control, that is, within the confidence intervals.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Describe what process data are. Why are process data important to businesses? What is a common goal of businesses using quality control?
Process data are data arranged according to some time sequence. Process data are important to businesses because important characteristics of process data can change over time, and businesses are interested in ensuring quality by controlling these important characteristics. Businesses using quality control are interested in reducing variability in characteristics of their product.
2) Define statistically stable (or “within statistical control”). Show examples of run charts which illustrate processes which are not statistically controlled. Discuss the pattern which indicates the process is not statistically controlled for each example.
A process is statistically stable if it has only natural variation, with no patterns, cycles, or any unusual points. Any of the graphs in Figure 13-2 would apply: graphs with an obvious upward or downward trend, graphs with an upward or downward shift (relatively stable values for the first few, a shift, relatively stable values at the end), graphs with one exceptionally high or low value, graphs with cyclical behavior, or graphs whose variation is increasing over time.

SHORT ANSWER. Write the word or phrase that best completes each statement or answers the question. Provide an appropriate response.
1) Describe a run chart and give an example. Refer to the values on each of the axes as you describe the run chart.
A run chart is a sequential plot of individual data values over time. The horizontal axis typically is used for the time sequence, and the vertical axis is used for the values of the data.
2) Describe a control chart. Complete the table to identify the important parts of different types of control charts.

A control chart of a process characteristic (such as a mean or range) consists of values plotted sequentially over time, and it includes a center line, representing a central value of the characteristic measurement, as well as lower and upper control limits, representing boundaries used to separate and identify any points considered to be unusual.

Construct a run chart for individual values corresponding to the given data.
3) A machine is supposed to fill boxes to a weight of 50 lbs. Every 30 minutes a sample of four
boxes is tested; the results are given below.

Solve the Problem.
11) A control chart for atrributes is to be constructed. Which process would have wider control limits, a process which has been having a 5% rate of nonconforming items, or a process which has been having a 10% of nonconforming items? Assume that both processes have the same sample sizes. For a given sample size, would it be easier to detect a shift from 5% to 10% or a shift from 10% to 15%? Explain your reasoning.
The process which has been having a 10% of nonconforming items would have wider control limits. It would be easier to detect a shift from 5% to 10% than a shift from 10% to 15%, because at a 5% rate of nonconforming items, the control limits are narrower, and it thus takes a smaller shift before the proportion falls outside the control limits.
