26 . 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 that:

  1. there is insufficient information to conclude that the proportion for males is the same as the proportion for females.
  2. there is insufficient information to conclude that the proportion for males is not the same as the proportion for females.
  3. there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the proportion for males is higher than the proportion for females.
  4. not enough information to make a conclusion.

27 . 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.

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Not enough information given to solve the problem

28 . 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 two 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 one minute. Find the p -value when testing that the average loading times are the same.

  1. p -value is close to zero
  2. p -value is close to one
  3. not enough information given to solve the problem


Use the following information to answer the next three exercises: A corporation has offices in different parts of the country. It has gathered the following information concerning the number of bathrooms and the number of employees at seven sites:

Number of employees x 650 730 810 900 102 107 1150
Number of bathrooms y 40 50 54 61 82 110 121

29 . Is the correlation between the number of employees and the number of bathrooms significant?

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Not enough information to answer question

30 . The linear regression equation is:

  1. ŷ = 0.0094 − 79.96 x
  2. ŷ = 79.96 + 0.0094 x
  3. ŷ = 79.96 − 0.0094 x
  4. ŷ = − 0.0094 + 79.96 x

31 . If a site has 1,150 employees, approximately how many bathrooms should it have?

  1. 69
  2. 91
  3. 91,954
  4. We should not be estimating here.

32 . Suppose that a sample of size ten was collected, with x ¯ = 4.4 and s = 1.4. H 0 : σ 2 = 1.6 vs. H a : σ 2 ≠ 1.6. Which graph best describes the results of the test?

There are 4 curves that display the P-value for a Test of a Single Variance. Graph (a) shows two tails shaded for chi-square = 6.89. Graph (b) shows two tails shaded for chi-square = 1.96. Graph (c) shows two tails shaded for chi-square = 11.03. Graph (d) shows two tails shaded for chi-square = 2.23.

Sixty-four backpackers were asked the number of days since their latest backpacking trip. The number of days is given in [link] :

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

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

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

34 . Which of the following statements is true when using one-way ANOVA?

  1. The populations from which the samples are selected have different distributions.
  2. The sample sizes are large.
  3. The test is to determine if the different groups have the same means.
  4. There is a correlation between the factors of the experiment.

statistics is limited to use where data can be measured quantitatively. statistics scope is wider such as in economic planning, medical science etc.

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

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.

in this test you are worried on both the ends

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

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.
