Problem Set 3.6: Errors and Significance: Character 1 and Character 2 Error

  • Criterion: Differentiate between Character 1      and Character 2 falsity.
  • Data: It is an certain truth that in      the open population, men search further on balance than women. In a examine,      you randomly pattern 100 men and 100 women, you annals each separateicipant's      weight, and you discover that there is no symbolical dissimilitude in heaviness      grounded on gender.
  • Instruction: Response the      following:

  • Given that a dissimilitude       really does remain in the population, what character of falsity is this (Type 1       or Character 2)? Teach your response.


Problem Set 3.7: Errors and Significance: Character 1 and Character 2 Error

  • Instruction: Response the      following:

  • Given       that you institute a dissimilitude in your examine where none remains in the       open population, fulfill the falsity (Type 1 or Character 2) and teach       your response.

Problem Set 3.8: Supposition Testing and the z Score.

  • Criterion: Evaluate a trifling supposition grounded on      analysis of facts.
  • Data: Joan      is 72 inches lofty. The balance (mean) summit for adult women is 65 inches,      and the trutination disconnection is 3.5 inches.
  • Instructions

a. State the trifling supposition.

b. State the opinion supposition.

c. Response this: Joan is loftyer than what percentage of women in the population? (Hint: Deem z charges and area subordinate the regular deflexion.)

d. Response this: Given Joan's summit as compared to the population balance, do you anticipate to decline the trifling supposition? Teach your response.

Problem Set 3.9: One-Sample t Test

Criterion: Hand investigate a one-pattern t criterion.

Data: Rex’s Flower Shop advertised new cut roses that terminal longer than other roses. The balance vase vitality for a rose is 8 days. The ensueing is a pattern of the reckon of vase vitality days for 9 bouquets of roses from Rex’s Flower Shop: 8, 6, 12, 11, 8, 9, 14, 15, 10.

Instruction: Complete the ensueing:

a. State the nondirectional supposition.

b. State the momentous t for α = .05 (two tails).

c. Investigate t. Show your production.

d. Answer: Is the vase vitality of Rex’s roses symbolically unanalogous than the population balance? Explain.
