One hundred people are selected at random and tested for colorblindness to determine whether gender and colorblindness are independent. The critical value of X2 for a 2 x 2 table using a 0.05 significance level is 3.841. If the value of the X2 statistic is 4.613, state your conclusion about the relationship between gender and colorblindness. A. Reject H0. There is not sufficient evidence to support the claim that gender and colorblindness are related. B. Reject H0. There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that gender and colorblindness are related. C. Do not Reject H0. There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that gender and colorblindness are related. D. Do not Reject H0. There is not sufficient evidence to support the claim that gender and colorblindness are related. A simple random sample from a normal distribution is taken in order to obtain a 95% confidence interval for the population mean. If the sample size is 8, the sample mean x̄ is 22, and the sample standard deviation s is 6.3, what is the margin of error? Show your answer to 2 decimal places. A. df = 7; E = 3.3445.38 = 5.6566 B. df = 8; E = 3.3445.38 = 5.6566 C. df = 6; E = 2.3656.38 = 5.769 D. df = 7; E = 2.3656.38 = 5.869 One hundred people are selected at random and tested for colorblindness to determine whether gender and colorblindness are independent.
