MATH 3200 PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS M3200FL133.1 In almost all problems, I have given the answers to four significant digits. If your answer is slightly different from one of mine, consider that to be roundoff error and mark the closely matching one. If your answer differs from the closest one of mine by more than one percent (meaning the ratio of yours to mine is less than 0.99 or greater than 1.01), then mark J) None of the preceding . 1. Let pbe the proportion of people in the population who prefer Gatorade over All Sport. Eighteen tasters participate in a taste-testing experiment, and twelve prefer Gatorade over All Sport. Suppose that a priori there is no reason to claim that one drink is preferred over the other. Therefore the alternative hypothesis is two-sided. What is the P-value? (Because of the small sample size, use an exact test, not a normal approximation.) A) 0.1083 B) 0.1515 C) 0.1947 D) 0.2379 E) 0.2811 F) 0.3243 G) 0.3675 H) 0.4107 I) 0.4539 J) None of the preceding 2. A researcher desperate to find a statistically significant difference between two groups has data on 25 variables from each group. She tests 25 null hypotheses, each null hypothesis being that the group means are equal, hoping to find a significant difference on at least one variable. Suppose that the 25 tests are mutually independent and are conducted individually at the 5% level. What is the probability that at least one null hypothesis will be incorrectly rejected even if all null hypotheses are true? preceding

MATH 3200 PROBABILITY AND STATISTICS M3200FL133.2 3. An EPA researcher wants to design a study to estimate the mean lead level of fish in a lake located near an industrial area. Based on past sample data, the researcher estimates that σfor the lead level is 0.012 mg/g. He wants to use a 95% CI having a margin of error no greater than 0.002 mg/g. How many fish does he need to catch?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
