Question 2 of 19

The mean GPA (grade point average) of all

male students at a college is 2.78 and the mean GPA of all female students at

workers in a state is $759 and the mean weekly earnings of all male workers in

the same state is $822. The standard deviations of the weekly earnings are $89

for the females and $94 for the males. Suppose we take one sample of 331 female

workers and another sample of 295 male workers from this state.

sampling distribution of the difference between the mean weekly earnings for

females and males?

Question 4 of 19

A sample of 73 female workers and another

sample of 47 male workers from a state produced mean weekly earnings of $729.51

for the females and $765.40 for the males. Suppose that the standard deviations

of the weekly earnings are $80.00 for the females and $96.51 for the males. The

null hypothesis is that the mean weekly earnings are the same for females and

males, while the alternative hypothesis is that the mean weekly earnings for

females is different from the mean weekly earnings for males.

corresponding 95% confidence interval for the difference between the mean

weekly earnings for all female and male workers in this state?

Question 7 of 19

Referring to Questions 4-6 :

Should you reject or fail to reject the

null hypothesis at the 1% significance level?

A.

Reject

B. Fail

to reject

Question 8 of 19

A sample of 16 from a population produced

a mean of 85.4 and a standard deviation of 14.8. A sample of 18 from another

population produced a mean of 74.9 and a standard deviation of 16.0. Assume

that the two populations are normally distributed and the standard deviations

of the two populations are equal. The null hypothesis is that the two

population means are equal, while the alternative hypothesis is that the mean

of the first population is different than the mean of the second population.

The significance level is 1%.

What is the pooled standard deviation of

the two samples?

A. 2.73

B. 3.93

C.

15.92

D.

15.45

Question 9 of 19

sampling distribution of the difference between the means of these two samples?

A. 5.31

B. 5.47

C. 1.35

D.

131.32

Question 10 of 19

Referring to Questions 8-9 ;

What is the value of the test statistic, t

?

A. .99

B. 5.31

C. 7.12

Question 11 of 19

Referring to Questions 8-10:

Should you reject or fail to reject the

null hypothesis at the 1% significance level?

A.

Reject

B. Fail

to reject

Question 12 of 19

A sample of 20 from a population produced

a mean of 65.0 and a standard deviation of 9.2. A sample of 25 from another

population produced a mean of 59.1 and a standard deviation of 12.2. Assume

that the two populations are normally distributed and the standard deviations

of the two populations are equal. The null hypothesis is that the two

population means are equal, while the alternative hypothesis is that the two

population means are different. The significance level is 5%.

Should you reject or fail to reject the

null hypothesis at the 5% significance level?

A.

Reject

B. Fail

to reject

Question 13 of 19

A city recently launched a neighborhood

watch program to control crime. The following table gives the number of crimes

reported in six neighborhoods during the six months before and six months after

the city launched the neighborhood watch program.

Let the paired difference be the number of

crimes before minus the number of crimes after the city launched the

neighborhood watch program. The null hypothesis is that the mean of the

population paired differences is equal to zero (i.e. the neighborhood watch

program does not affect the number of crimes.) The alternative hypothesis is

that the mean of the population paired differences is different than zero

(i.e., the neighborhood watch program decreases the number of crimes). The

significance level is 1%.

68.30
