The Eastern and Western Major League Soccer conferences have a new Reserve Division that allows new players to develop their skills. Data for a randomly picked date showed the following annual goals.
Western | Eastern |
Los Angeles 9 | D.C. United 9 |
FC Dallas 3 | Chicago 8 |
Chivas USA 4 | Columbus 7 |
Real Salt Lake 3 | New England 6 |
Colorado 4 | MetroStars 5 |
San Jose 4 | Kansas City 3 |
Conduct a hypothesis test to determine if the Western Reserve Division teams score, on average, fewer goals than the Eastern Reserve Division teams. Subscripts: 1 Western Reserve Division ( W ); 2 Eastern Reserve Division ( E )
The exact distribution for the hypothesis test is:
B
If the level of significance is 0.05, the conclusion is:
C
Questions [link] – [link] refer to the following.
Neuroinvasive West Nile virus refers to a severe disease that affects a person’s nervous system . It is spread by the Culex species of mosquito. In the United States in 2010 there were 629 reported cases of neuroinvasive West Nile virus out of a total of 1021 reported cases and there were 486 neuroinvasive reported cases out of a total of 712 cases reported in 2011. Is the 2011 proportion of neuroinvasive West Nile virus cases more than the 2010 proportion of neuroinvasive West Nile virus cases? Using a 1% level of significance, conduct an appropriate hypothesis test. (Source: http:// http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/index.htm )
This is:
A
An appropriate null hypothesis is:
A
The $p$ -value is 0.0022. At a 1% level of significance, the appropriate conclusion is
D
Questions [link] and [link] refer to the following:
A golf instructor is interested in determining if her new technique for improving players’ golf scores is effective. She takes four (4) new students. She records their 18-holes scores before learning the technique and then after having taken her class. She conducts a hypothesis test. The data are as follows.
Player 1 | Player 2 | Player 3 | Player 4 | |
Mean score before class | 83 | 78 | 93 | 87 |
Mean score after class | 80 | 80 | 86 | 86 |
This is:
D
The correct decision is:
B
Questions [link] and [link] refer to the following:
Suppose a statistics instructor believes that there is no significant difference between the mean class scores of statistics day students on Exam 2 and statistics night students on Exam 2. She takes random samples from each of the populations. The mean and standard deviation for 35 statistics day students were 75.86 and 16.91. The mean and standard deviation for 37 statistics night students were 75.41 and 19.73. The “day” subscript refers to the statistics day students. The “night” subscript refers to the statistics night students.
An appropriate alternate hypothesis for the hypothesis test is:
D
A concluding statement is:
C
