1 Provide an appropriate response. 1) Suppose that x is a normally distributed variable on each of two populations. Independent samples of sizes n1 and n2, respectively, are selected from the two populations. True or false? The standard deviation of all possible s between the two sample means equals the square root of the of variances each divided by the corresponding sample size. 2) Suppose that x is a variable on each of two populations. Independent samples of sizes 5 and 8, respectively, are selected from the two populations. True or false? x 1 - x 2 is normally distributed, regardless of the distributions of the variable on the two populations. 3) Suppose a researcher wants to perform a hypothesis test to compare systolic blood pressure for men with systolic blood pressure for women, based on independent samples. She obtains a random sample of 30 married couples and determines systolic blood pressure for the men, x 1, and systolic blood pressure for the women, x 2. She formulates the hypotheses as follows H0: μ1 = μ2 Ha: μ1 μ2 and will reject the null hypothesis if x 1 - x 2, the observed sample means is too large. She will use a two-means z-test. Identify the flaw in her methodology. Determine the null and alternative hypotheses for the proposed hypothesis test. 4) A researcher wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether length of marriages in California differs from length of marriages in Texas. 5) A researcher is interested in determining whether men who have completed a postgraduate degree (master's or Phd) have greater earning potential than those who have completed a Bachelor's degree only. She will perform a hypothesis test to determine whether salary of men who have completed a postgraduate degree is greater than salary of men with a Bachelor's degree only. Solve the problem. 6) A researcher is interested in comparing the resting pulse rate of women who exercise regularly and women who do not exercise regularly. She wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether resting pulse rate of women who exercise at least 6 hours per week is less than resting pulse rate of women who exercise less than 6 hours per week. Identify the two populations for the proposed hypothesis test. 7) A researcher is interested in comparing the resting pulse rate of women who exercise regularly and women who do not exercise regularly. She wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether resting pulse rate of women who exercise at least 6 hours per week is less than resting pulse rate of women who exercise less than 6 hours per week. Identify the variable for the proposed hypothesis test. 8) The forced vital capacity (FVC) is often used by physicians to assess a person's ability to move air in and out of their lungs. It is the maximum amount of air that can be exhaled after a deep breath. A researcher wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether forced vital capacity for women is less than forced vital capacity for men. Identify the two populations for the proposed hypothesis test. 1

Further suppose that either the variable under consideration is normally distributed on each of the two populations or the sample sizes are large. True or false? If the population standard deviations are quite different, then using the pooled t-test can result in a significantly smaller Type I error probability than the one specified. 10) Suppose that you want to perform a hypothesis test based on independent simple random samples to compare s of two populations. Further suppose that either the variable under consideration is normally distributed on each of the two populations or the sample sizes are large. True or false? If the population standard deviations are equal, then the pooled t-test gives a larger probability of a Type II error than the nonpooled t-test. 11) Suppose that you want to perform a hypothesis test based on independent simple random samples to compare s of two populations. Further suppose that the variable under consideration is normally distributed on each of the two populations and that the population standard deviations are unknown. If the sample standard deviations are 3.8 and 6.1, respectively, and the sample sizes are and 60, respectively, would you use the pooled or the nonpooled t-test? Explain your answer. 12) Suppose that you want to perform a hypothesis test based on independent simple random samples to compare s of two populations. Further suppose that either the variable under consideration is normally distributed on each of the two populations or the sample sizes are large. True or false? If the population standard deviations are equal, then, on average, the pooled t-test is slightly more powerful than the nonpooled t-test. Preliminary data analyses indicate that you can reasonably use nonpooled t-procedures on the given data. Apply a nonpooled t-test to perform the required hypothesis test, using either the critical-value approach or the P-value approach as indicated. 13) A researcher was interested in comparing the amount of time spent watching television by women and by men. Independent random samples of 14 women and 17 men were selected and each person was asked how many hours he or she had watched television during the previous week.

Independent simple random samples of 11 cans of type A and 9 cans of type B were selected and applied to similar surfaces. The drying times, in hours, were recorded. The summary statistics are as follows. Type A Type B x 1 = 75.7 x 2 = 63.2 s1 = 4.5 s2 = 5.1 n1 = 11 n2 = 9 Determine a 98% confidence interval for the, μ1 - μ2, mean drying time for type A and drying time for type B. Provide an appropriate response. ) A researcher would like to conduct a hypothesis test to compare SAT scores of students who have received extra coaching and SAT score of students who have not received extra coaching. In this case, a paired t-test would be appropriate since a natural pairing exists (a pair consists of a student before coaching and the same student after coaching). If the researcher instead uses independent samples and a pooled or nonpooled t-test, how is this likely to affect the probability of a Type II error? ) Manufacturer X has designed athletic footwear which it hopes will improve the performance of athletes running the 100-meter sprint. It wishes to perform a hypothesis test to compare times of athletes in the 100-meter sprint running with Manufacturer X's footwear and with other shoes.

If you think that a paired test is preferable, explain what would constitute a pair. 23) A teacher is interested in performing a hypothesis test to compare math score of the girls and math score of the boys. She randomly selects 10 girls from the class and then randomly selects 10 boys. She arranges the girls' names alphabetically and uses this list to assign each girl a number between 1 and 10. She does the same thing for the boys. She pairs each girl with the boy having the same number. She then performs a paired t-test. Do you think that in this situation a paired t-test is appropriate? Explain your answer. Preliminary data analyses indicates that use of a paired t-test is reasonable. Perform the hypothesis test by using either the critical-value approach or the P-value approach as indicated.

In theory, the pooled t-test requires that standard deviations be If the population standard deviations are unequal, but not too unequal, and the sample sizes are nearly the same, using the pooled t-test will not cause serious difficulties. However, in this case, the significant sample standard deviations suggests that standard deviations are significantly un In addition, the sample sizes are also significantly different. Therefore, using the pooled t-test could result in a significantly larger Type I error probability than the one specified.

10 Answer Key Testname: 1342-MAY-PT-2MN-ANOVA ) A paired t-test is more appropriate since a natural pairing exists. By using a paired sample, extraneous sources of variation are removed, in this case, the variation in 100-meter sprint times among athletes. Thus, the sampling error made in estimating the population means should be smaller. A pair would consist of an athlete's time running the 100-meter sprint in Manufacturer X's footwear and that same athlete's time running the 100-meter sprint in his (or her) usual shoes. (Explanations will vary.) 23) No, a paired test is not appropriate since a natural pairing does not exist members of the two populations. 24) H0: μ1 = μ2 Ha: μ1 > μ2 α = 0.05 t = < P < 0.05 Reject H0.

Also, the normality and equal-standar d deviations assumptions can be assessed by performing a residual analysis. This involves finding each residual (the observation and of the sample containing it) and making a normal probability plot of the residuals. If the assumptions are met, the residuals should be roughly linear and a plot of the residuals against the sample means should fall roughly in a horizontal band centered and symmetric about the horizontal axis. 36) True 10

11 Answer Key Testname: 1342-MAY-PT-2MN-ANOVA 37) The variation between samples gives a measure of the variation among the sample means and is a weighted average of their squared deviations about the mean of all the sample data. The variation within samples gives a measure of the variation among individual observations within each population. 38) It seems clear that the sample means is due to a between population means, not to the variation within the populations. The null hypothesis would be rejected. 39) Since the variation sample means is large relative to the variation within the samples, it is reasonable to the sample means is due to a population means and not to variation within the populations. The null hypothesis would be rejected. 40) False 41) SSTR = SSTR = treatment sum of squares and represents the variation among the sample means. 42) False 43) (3, 71) 44) True 45) H0: μ1 = μ2 = μ3 = μ4.
