Question 16 of 23 3.0 Points Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation).

For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. A sport preference poll yielded the following data for men and women. Use a 5% significance level and test to determine if sport preference and gender are independent. Sport Preferences of Men and Women

One way to measure the risk of a given stock is to measure the variation in the stock’s daily price changes. In an effort to test the claim that the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 1 is different from the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 2, the investor obtains a random sample of 21 daily price changes for stock 1 and 21 daily price changes for stock 2. The summary statistics associated with these samples are: n1 = 21, s1 = .848, n2 = 21, s2 = .529. If you follow Bluman’s advice and place the larger variance in the numerator when computing the test value, at the .05 level of significance, what is the critical value associated with this test of hypothesis? Place your answer, rounded to 2 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 3.45 would be a legitimate entry.

The mean weight of loads of coal placed in train cars by a loading machine is 43.0 tons with a standard deviation of 8.0 tons. Assuming that the weight of loads placed in the train cars by this loader are normally distributed, if a random sample of 9 loads is chosen for a weight check, find the probability that the mean weight of those loads is more than 40.60 tons. Place your answer, rounded to four decimal places, in the blank. When entering your answer do not use any labels or symbols other than a decimal point. Simply provide the numerical value. For example, 0.1234 would be a legitimate entry.

Senior management of a consulting services firm is concerned about a growing decline in the firm’s weekly number of billable hours. The firm expects each professional employee to spend at least 40 hours per week on work. In an effort to understand this problem better, management would like to estimate the standard deviation of the number of hours their employees spend on workrelated activities in a typical week. Rather than reviewing the records of all the firm’s fulltime employees, the management randomly selected a sample of size 51 from the available frame. The sample mean and sample standard deviations were 48.5 and 7.5 hours, respectively. Construct a 90% confidence interval for the standard deviation of the number of hours this firm’s employees spend on workrelated activities in a typical week. Place your LOWER limit, in hours, rounded to 1 decimal place, in the first blank. For example, 6.7 would be a legitimate entry. Place your UPPER limit, in hours, rounded to 1 decimal place, in the second blank. For example, 12.3 would be a legitimate entry.

A statistician wishes to test the claim that the standard deviation of the weights of firemen is greater than 25 pounds. To do so, she selected a random sample of 30 firemen and found s = 27.2 pounds. Assuming that the weights of firemen are normally distributed, if the statistician wanted to test her research hypothesis at the .05 level of significance, what is the critical value? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 23.456 would be a legitimate entry.
