A math exam was given to all the third grade children attending ABC School. Two random samples of scores were taken.

n x ¯ s
Boys 55 82 5
Girls 60 86 7

Which of the following correctly describes the results of a hypothesis test of the claim, “There is a difference between the mean scores obtained by third grade girls and boys at the 5 % level of significance”?

  • Do not reject H o . There is insufficient evidence to conclude that there is a difference in the mean scores.
  • Do not reject H o . There is sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a difference in the mean scores.
  • Reject H o . There is insufficient evidence to conclude that there is no difference in the mean scores.
  • Reject H o . There is sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a difference in the mean scores.

In a survey of 80 males, 45 had played an organized sport growing up. Of the 70 females surveyed, 25 had played an organized sport growing up. We are interested in whether the proportion for males is higher than the proportion for females. The correct conclusion is:

  • There is insufficient information to conclude that the proportion for males is the same as the proportion for females.
  • There is insufficient information to conclude that the proportion for males is not the same as the proportion for females.
  • There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the proportion for males is higher than the proportion for females.
  • Not enough information to determine.

C: There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the proportion for males is higher than the proportion for females.

Note: Chi-Square Test of a Single Variance; Not all classes cover this topic. From past experience, a statistics teacher has found that the average score on a midterm is 81 with a standard deviation of 5.2. This term, a class of 49 students had a standard deviation of 5 on the midterm. Do the data indicate that we should reject the teacher’s claim that the standard deviation is 5.2? Use α = 0.05 .

  • Yes
  • No
  • Not enough information given to solve the problem

B: No

Note: F Distribution Test of ANOVA; Not all classes cover this topic. Three loading machines are being compared. Ten samples were taken for each machine. Machine I took an average of 31 minutes to load packages with a standard deviation of 2 minutes. Machine II took an average of 28 minutes to load packages with a standard deviation of 1.5 minutes. Machine III took an average of 29 minutes to load packages with a standard deviation of 1 minute. Find the p-value when testing that the average loading times are the same.

  • the p–value is close to 0
  • p–value is close to 1

64 backpackers were asked the number of days their latest backpacking trip was. The number of days is given in the table below:

# of days 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Frequency 5 9 6 12 7 10 5 10

Conduct an appropriate test to determine if the distribution is uniform.

  • The p–value is>0.10. There is insufficient information to conclude that the distribution is not uniform.
  • The p–value is<0.01. There is sufficient information to conclude the distribution is not uniform.
  • The p–value is between 0.01 and 0.10, but without alpha (α) there is not enough information
  • There is no such test that can be conducted.

A: The p–value is>0.10. There is insufficient information to conclude that the distribution is not uniform.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
