64 . p c = x A + x A n A + n A = 65 + 78 100 + 100 = 0.715

65 . Using the calculator function 2-PropZTest, the p-value = 0.0417. Reject the null hypothesis. At the 3% significance level, here is sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a difference between the proportions of households in the two communities that have cable service.

66 . Using the calculator function 2-PropZTest, the p -value = 0.0417. Do not reject the null hypothesis. At the 1% significance level, there is insufficient evidence to conclude that there is a difference between the proportions of households in the two communities that have cable service.

10.4: matched or paired samples

67 . H 0 : x ¯ d 0
H a : x ¯ d < 0

68 . t = – 4.5644

69 . df = 30 – 1 = 29.

70 . Using the calculator function TTEST, the p -value = 0.00004 so reject the null hypothesis. At the 5% level, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the participants lost weight, on average.

71 . A positive t -statistic would mean that participants, on average, gained weight over the six months.

11.1: facts about the chi-square distribution

72 . μ = df = 20
σ = 2 ( d f ) = 40 = 6.32

11.2: goodness-of-fit test

73 . Enrolled = 200(0.66) = 132. Not enrolled = 200(0.34) = 68

74 .

Observed (O) Expected (E) O – E (O – E)2 ( O E ) 2 z
Enrolled 145 132 145 – 132 = 13 169 169 132 = 1.280
Not enrolled 55 68 55 – 68 = –13 169 169 68 = 2.485

75 . df = n – 1 = 2 – 1 = 1.

76 . Using the calculator function Chi-square GOF – Test (in STAT TESTS), the test statistic is 3.7656 and the p-value is 0.0523. Do not reject the null hypothesis. At the 5% significance level, there is insufficient evidence to conclude that high school most recent graduating class distribution of enrolled and not enrolled does not fit that of the national distribution.

77 . approximates the normal

78 . skewed right

11.3: test of independence

79 .

Cell = Yes Cell = No Total
Freshman 250 ( 300 ) 500 = 150 250 ( 200 ) 500 = 100 250
Senior 250 ( 300 ) 500 = 150 250 ( 200 ) 500 = 100 250
Total 300 200 500

80 . ( 100 150 ) 2 150 = 16.67
( 150 100 ) 2 100 = 25
( 200 100 ) 2 150 = 16.67
( 50 100 ) 2 100 = 25

81 . Chi-square = 16.67 + 25 + 16.67 + 25 = 83.34.
df = ( r – 1)( c – 1) = 1

82 . p -value = P (Chi-square, 83.34) = 0
Reject the null hypothesis.
You could also use the calculator function STAT TESTS Chi-Square – Test.

11.4: test of homogeneity

83 . The table has five rows and two columns. df = ( r – 1)( c – 1) = (4)(1) = 4.

11.5: comparison summary of the chi-square tests: goodness-of-fit, independence and homogeneity

84 . Using the calculator function (STAT TESTS) Chi-square Test, the p -value = 0. Reject the null hypothesis. At the 5% significance level, there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the poll responses independent of the participants’ ethnic group.

85 . The expected value of each cell must be at least five.

86 . H 0 : The variables are independent.
H a : The variables are not independent.

87 . H 0 : The populations have the same distribution.
H a : The populations do not have the same distribution.

11.6: test of a single variance

88 . H 0 : σ 2 ≤ 5
H a : σ 2 >5

Practice test 4

12.1 linear equations

1 . Which of the following equations is/are linear?

  1. y = –3 x
  2. y = 0.2 + 0.74 x
  3. y = –9.4 – 2 x
  4. A and B
  5. A, B, and C

How can you identify a possible outlier(s) in a data set.
Daniel
The best visualisation method to identify the outlier is box and wisker method or boxplot diagram. The points which are located outside the max edge of wisker(both side) are considered as outlier.
Akash
@Daniel Adunkwah - Usually you can identify an outlier visually. They lie outside the observed pattern of the other data points, thus they're called outliers.

How to answer quantitative data
Alhassan Reply
hi
Kachalla
what's up here ... am new here
Kachalla
sorry question a bit unclear...do you mean how do you analyze quantitative data? If yes, it depends on the specific question(s) you set in the beginning as well as on the data you collected. So the method of data analysis will be dependent on the data collecter and questions asked.

how to solve for degree of freedom
saliou
Quantitative data is the data in numeric form. For eg: Income of persons asked is 10,000. This data is quantitative data on the other hand data collected for either make or female is qualitative data.

Degree of freedom is the unconditionality. For example if you have total number of observations n, and you have to calculate variance, obviously you will need mean for that. Here mean is a condition, without which you cannot calculate variance. Therefore degree of freedom for variance will be n-1.
Rohan
data that is best presented in categories like haircolor, food taste (good, bad, fair, terrible) constitutes qualitative data

vegetation types (grasslands, forests etc) qualitative data
