1. The grade point averages of students participating in sports at a local college are to be
compared. The data are listed below.

Tennis Golf      Swimming
2.1     1.8        3.0
3.2     2.1        2.5
2.5     1.9        2.8
3.5     3.3        2.7
3.1                2.5
2.6

Perform an analysis of variance test and give the P-value. Write down exactly what R gives you,
without rounding.

2. What is your conclusion to the sports problem above? (Use   .01.)

a) There is evidence of a connection between grade point average and sport.

b) There is not enough evidence to conclude that there is a connection between grade point
average and sport.
3. As part of a marketing experiment, a department store regularly mailed discount coupons to 25
of its credit card holders. Their total credit card purchases over the next three months were
compared to their credit card purchases during the previous three months. The amount of each
customer’s purchases over the next three months was subtracted from the amount of his or her
purchases over the previous three months (previous minus next). You are attempting to prove that
this marketing scheme (of mailing coupons) works. What is the alternative hypothesis for this
test?

a) H a :   0

b) H a :   0

c) H a :   0

d) H a :   0

4. A local brewery distributes beer in bottles labeled 12 ounces. Twenty of these bottles are
selected and their contents are measured. The sample mean turns out to be 11.7 ounces with a
standard deviation of 1.3 ounces. You are trying to prove that the average volume of a bottle of
beer is less than 12 ounces. Find the confidence interval you would use for this test. Use   .05.
Write down exactly what R gives you, without rounding at all. SHOW ALL YOUR WORK.

5. When performing a Chi-Square test, after computing the expected values, one must then go to
each cell and calculate a special number that is a measure of how close the observed value of that
cell is to the expected value of that cell. Suppose that in a particular cell you had an observed
value of 26 and an expected value of 35. Calculate this special number for this cell. ROUND TO
TWO DECIMAL PLACES. SHOW YOUR WORK.

6. The engineering school at a major university claims that more than 20% of its graduates are
women. In a graduating class of 210 students, 58 were women. You are attempting to support
this claim. Find the confidence interval you would use for this test. Use   .05. Write down
exactly what R gives you, without rounding at all.

7. Five students took the SAT. Their scores are listed below. Later on, they took a test
preparation course and retook the SAT. Their new scores are listed below.

Student          1   2   3   4   5
Scores before course 720 860 850 880 860
Scoresafter course 740 860 840 920 890

The claim is that the preparation course improves students scores on the average. You are
attempting to support this claim. Calculate the P-value for this test. Write down exactly what R
gives you, without rounding at all.

_________________________

8. Repeat the problem above, except now assume that the group of students who took the SAT
without taking the preparation course is completely different from the group of students who took
the SAT after taking the preparation course. Also, assume equal variances. (Again, calculate the
P-value for this test. Write down exactly what R gives you, without rounding at all.)

9. A fast food outlet claims that the mean waiting time in line is less than 2.1 minutes. A random
sample of 20 customers has a mean of 1.9 minutes with a standard deviation of 1.1 minutes. You
are attempting to support this claim. Find the P-value you would use for this test. Write down
exactly what R gives you, without rounding at all. SHOW YOUR WORK.

___________________________

10. A very large Chi-squared value leads to a

a) small P-value.

b) large P-value.

11. The following table gives the results of a poll taken to study the opinions of adults and
teenagers on legal gambling.

Approve                  Disapprove               No Opinion

Teens                    261                      235                      5

What would be the alternative hypothesis for this test?

a) There is a connection between age and opinion.

b) There is no connection between age and opinion.

12. Use R to calculate the P-value for the data in the opinion problem above. Write down exactly
what R gives you, without rounding.

_________________________
13. What is your conclusion to the opinion problem above? (Use   .01.)

a) There is evidence of a connection between age and opinion.

b) There is not enough evidence to conclude that there is a connection between age and opinion.

14. A sports researcher is interested in determining if there is a relationship between the number
of home team wins and visiting team wins and different sports. A random sample of 526 games is
selected and the results are given below.

Home                39                 156                 25                  83
Away                31                 98                  19                  75

Use R to calculate the Chi-squared value for this data. Write down exactly what R gives you,
without rounding. DO NOT DO THIS BY HAND.

15. For the sports problem above, write down all of the expected values. Use R to do this. You
may round to two decimal places. DO NOT DO THIS BY HAND.

16. The data below are the scores of 10 randomly selected students from a statistics class and the
number of hours they studied for the exam.

Hours, x 3 5 2 8 2 4 4 5 6 3
Scores, y 65 80 60 88 66 78 85 90 90 71

Find the correlation of x and y. Write down exactly what R gives you, without rounding at all.

17. For the regression problem above, determine the P-value you would use to decide if there is
enough evidence of a relationship between study time and score. Write down exactly what R
gives you, without rounding at all.

18. For the regression problem above, write down the equation of the regression line. Do not
round at all.

19. For the regression problem above, plot x vs. y, along with the graph of the regression line. I
will come by to check this.

21. Consider a Chi-Square Table with two rows and three columns. Suppose also the following:

-The sum of the numbers in the first row is 102.

-The sum of the numbers in the second row is 70.

-The sum of the numbers in the first column is 55.

-The sum of the numbers in the second column is 33.

-The sum of the numbers in the third column is 84.

-The observed value for the cell in the first row and second column is 20.

Calculate the expected value for the cell in the first row and second column. ROUND TO TWO
DECIMAL PLACES.

22. A realtor wishes to compare the average square footage of houses in 4 different cities by
doing an analysis of variance test. The null hypothesis for this test would be

a) The average square footage is the same for each city.

b) There is a connection between square footage and location.

c) The average square footage is different for each city.

23. In an area of the Midwest, records were kept on the relationship between the rainfall in inches
(x) and the yield of wheat in bushels (y). The following regression equation is determined:

y  4.379x  4.267
ˆ

Use this equation to predict the yield of wheat if eleven inches of rain falls. Do not round at all.

24. To test the effectiveness of a new drug designed to relieve pain, 200 patients were randomly
selected and divided into two equal groups. One group of 100 patients was given a pill containing
the drug while the other group of 100 was given a placebo. There were 62 patients who actually
took the drug and felt relief from their symptoms, while 41 of the patients taking the placebo felt
relief. You are to perform a two-tailed test to see if there is evidence of a difference between the
true proportion of patients taking the drug and experiencing relief and the true proportion of
patients taking the placebo and experiencing relief. Calculate the P-value for this test. Write
down exactly what R gives you, without rounding at all.

25. In a survey of 500 doctors that practice medicine, 20% felt that the government should control
health care. In a survey of 800 doctors that were general practitioners, 30% felt that the
government should control health care. You are to perform a two-tailed test to see if there is
evidence of a difference between the true proportions. Calculate the P-value for this test. Write
down exactly what R gives you, without rounding at all.
