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 $\overline{x}$ = 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?

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.

Hello every one
Okoi
sample survey is done by local government in each and every field.
syeda
statistics is used in almost every government organisations such as health department, economic department, census, weather forecasting fields
raghavendra
that's true
syeda
statistics is one of the tool that represents the falling and rising of any cases in one sheet either that is in population census whether forecast as well as economic growth
statistic is a technique, and statistics is a subject

Probability tells you the likelihood of an event happening. ... The higher the probability, the more likely it is to happen. Probability is a number or fraction between 0 and 1. A probability of 1 means something will always happen, and a probability of 0 means something will never happen...
Saying it's a number between zero and one means it is a fraction so you could remove "or fraction" from you definition.
Carlos
wouldn't be correct to remove fractions, saying a number is justified as probabilities can also be decimals between 0 and 1.
Denzel
Saying "a number" will include it being a decimal which are themselves fractions in another form.
Carlos
I will simply say a probability is a number in the range zero to one, inclusive.
