Question 1: A television station is interested in predicting whether or not voters are in favor of an increase in the state sales tax. It asks its viewers to phone in and indicate whether they support or are opposed to an increase in the state sales tax in order to generate additional revenue for education. Of the 2633 viewers who phone in, 1474 (55.98%) are opposed to the increase. The population of interest is 11 people who will vote on the sales tax increase on the day of the vote. (b) all regular viewers of the television station who own a phone and have participated in similar phone surveys in the past. (0) the 2633 viewers who phoned in. (d) the 1474 viewers who were opposed to the increase. Question 2: Given data on two quantitative variables X and Y, if the coefficient of determination (T2) is equal to 1, then the slope of the least squares regression line fit to this data must b positive.

If r > 0, then a > 0. Circle one: [True] Question 5: A small college has 500 male and 600 female undergraduates. A simple random sample of 50 of the male undergraduates is selected, and, separately, 3 simple random sample of 60 of the female undergraduates is selected. The two samples are combined to give an overall sample of 110 students.

On a density curve, these are the points with areas 0.1 and 0.9 to their left under the curve. What are the deciles of the standard normal distribution? Question 8: According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), chloroform, which in its gaseous form is suspected of being a cancer causing agent, is present in small quantities in all of our country’s lakes. Suppose researchers at the EPA collected data by visiting each lake and measuring its chloroform level. Here, the individuals of interest are the lakes and the variable of interest is chloroform level. Researchers estimate the distribution of the amount of chloroform present among lakes to be nor- mally distributed with mean and standard deviation 31.6 and 7.9 micrograms per liter, respectively. Find the proportion of lakes that have a chloroform level that is greater than 45 micrograms per liter. Show all work to receive full credit.

How— ever, measuring the depth of a stream is relatively simple. A scientist would like to be able to use a measurement of stream depth to predict the rate of flow. She measures depth (m) and flow rate (liter/sec) at difl'erent points in several streams.
