11.3: test of independence

Use the following information to answer the next four exercises. You are considering conducting a chi-square test of independence for the data in this table, which displays data about cell phone ownership for freshman and seniors at a high school. Your null hypothesis is that cell phone ownership is independent of class standing.

79 . Compute the expected values for the cells.

Cell = Yes Cell = No
Freshman 100 150
Senior 200 50

80 . Compute ( O E ) 2 z for each cell, where O = observed and E = expected.

81 . What is the chi-square statistic and degrees of freedom for this study?

82 . At the α = 0.5 significance level, what is your decision regarding the null hypothesis?

11.4: test of homogeneity

83 . You conduct a chi-square test of homogeneity for data in a five by two table. What is the degrees of freedom for this test?

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

84 . A 2013 poll in the State of California surveyed people about taxing sugar-sweetened beverages. The results are presented in the following table, and are classified by ethnic group and response type. Are the poll responses independent of the participants’ ethnic group? Conduct a hypothesis test at the 5% significance level.

Ethnic Group \ Response Type Favor Oppose No Opinion Row Total
White / Non-Hispanic 234 433 43 710
Latino 147 106 19 272
African American 24 41 6 71
Asian American 54 48 16 118
Column Total 459 628 84 1171

85 . In a test of homogeneity, what must be true about the expected value of each cell?

86 . Stated in general terms, what are the null and alternative hypotheses for the chi-square test of independence?

87 . Stated in general terms, what are the null and alternative hypotheses for the chi-square test of homogeneity?

11.6: test of a single variance

88 . A lab test claims to have a variance of no more than five. You believe the variance is greater. What are the null and alternative hypothesis to test this?

Practice test 3 solutions

8.1: confidence interval, single population mean, population standard deviation known, normal

1 . σ n = 4 30 = 0.73

2 . normal

3 . 0.025 or 2.5%; A 95% confidence interval contains 95% of the probability, and excludes five percent, and the five percent excluded is split evenly between the upper and lower tails of the distribution.

4 . z -score = 1.96; E B M =   z α 2 ( σ n ) = ( 1.96 ) ( 0.73 ) =   1.4308

5 . 41 ± 1.43 = (39.57, 42.43); Using the calculator function Zinterval, answer is (40.74, 41.26. Answers differ due to rounding.

6 . The z -value for a 90% confidence interval is 1.645, so EBM = 1.645(0.73) = 1.20085.
The 90% confidence interval is 41 ± 1.20 = (39.80, 42.20).
The calculator function Zinterval answer is (40.78, 41.23). Answers differ due to rounding.

7 . The standard error of measurement is: σ n =   4 50 = 0.57
E B M =   z α 2 ( σ n ) = ( 1.96 ) ( 0.57 ) =   1.12
The 95% confidence interval is 41 ± 1.12 = (39.88, 42.12).
The calculator function Zinterval answer is (40.84, 41.16). Answers differ due to rounding.

explain the limitation and scope of statistics
mahelt
statistics is limited to use where data can be measured quantitatively. statistics scope is wider such as in economic planning, medical science etc.

p(x=5)= 5C0 p^5 q^0 solve this
Amresh
please sir.

ok
umesh
5C0=1 p^5= (3/4)^5 q^0=(1/4)^0

how will you know if a group of data set is a sample or population
Kingsley Reply
population is the whole set and the sample is the subset of population.
umair
if the data set is drawn out of a larger set it is a sample and if it is itself the whole complete set it can be treated as population.

hello everyone if I have the data set which contains measurements of each part during 10 years, may I say that it's the population or it's still a sample because it doesn't contain my measurements in the future? thanks

Hi eny population has a special definition. if that data set had all of characteristics of definition, that is population. otherwise that is a sample

what is two tailed test
Umar Reply
if the diameter will be greater than 3 cm then the bullet will not fit in the barrel of the gun so you are bothered for both the sides.
umair
in this test you are worried on both the ends
umair
lets say you are designing a bullet for thw gun od diameter equals 3cm.if the diameter of the bullet is less than 3 cm then you wont be able to shoot it

We have rules of numerical integration like Trapezoidal rule, Simpson's 1/3 and 3/8 rules, Boole's rule and Weddle rule for n =1,2,3,4 and 6 but for n=5?

what is the difference between inferential and descriptive statistics
Eze Reply
descriptive statistics gives you the result on the the data like you can calculate various things like variance,mean,median etc. however, inferential stats is involved in prediction of future trends using the previous stored data.
umair
if you need more help i am up for the help.
umair
Thanks a lot
Anjali
Inferential Statistics involves drawing conclusions on a population based on analysis of a sample. Descriptive statistics summarises or describes your current data as numerical calculations or graphs.
fred
my pleasure😊. Helping others offers me satisfaction 😊
umair
inferential statistics the results of the statistical analysis of the sample data of the population are used for generalization or decision making about the population why descriptive statistics, the analyzed data are presented without generalization or decision making about the population.
