Unformatted text preview: 1. I would expect that the pct.bf of one Nevada man would be independent of any others I would assume that this group of Nevada men is less than 10% of the entire population I would assume that the Nevada men were chosen at random for each study. Bodyfat$Pct.BF Frequency 10 20 30 40 50 10 20 30 40 50 mean sd 0% 25% 50% 75% 100% n 19.0316 8.294 0 12.425 19.2 25.2 47.5 250 One Sample t-test data: Bodyfat$Pct.BF t = 36.2812, df = 249, p-value < 2.2e-16 alternative hypothesis: true mean is not equal to 0 95 percent confidence interval: 17.99846 20.06474 sample estimates: mean of x 19.0316 I am 95% confident that the mean of the body fat for men in Utah is between 17.998-and 20.06. This is higher than the normal healthy range for body fat for men which is between 15-18%. The lower limit of the 95% confidence level is almost exactly equal to the upper limit of the healthy level which leads me to believe that obesity is a serious problem for men living in Utah. 2.

The wooden on has a large gap on one of its bins, but besides this, it looks the nearly normal condition is met The subjects are independent of each other so their differences should be as well I would assume that this group of roller coasters is less than 10% of the entire population I would assume that the coasters were chosen at random for each study and thus, that the two groups are independent of each other. 1 2 40 60 80 100 120 VI.2 > D=(Mazes$Scented-Mazes$Unscented) > Hist(D) D Frequency-20...
