1. (Moore PBS) The data below are increases in Math scores after two groups of people were exposed to different subliminal messages. Is there evidence that the increases in the treatment group (each day I am getting better in Math) are in general greater than those in the control group (people are walking on the street)? Conduct an appropriate nonparametric test, detail all the steps and use 01.0=a . Treatment: 6 7 10 11 11 12 13 13 15 16 Control: 4 5 5 7 8 11 12 14 2. (DASL) Two groups of people were given a balance test where each person had to stand on a platform and maintain stable upright position, then react to unexpected noises by pressing a button as quickly as possible. The data below are the mean measurements per person of forward- backward sway (in mm) when reacting to the noise. Is there evidence here that the two groups had significantly different amounts of forward- backward sway? Conduct an appropriate nonparametric test, detail all the steps and use 05.0=a . Elderly: 19 19 20 21 24 25 29 30 50 Young: 14 14 15 17 17 21 22 25 3. (Adapted from DASL.) Twenty-two tenors had a mean height of 69.2 inches with standard deviation 3.2 inches. Is this evidence that the mean height of all tenors is less than 71 inches? Conduct an appropriate hypothesis test using the P-value approach, detail all the steps and use 01.0=a . 4. Seventeen bags of tortilla chips had a mean weight of 13.7 oz with standard deviation 0.6 oz. We are interested in knowing if this is any indication that the mean weight of all bags of tortilla chips is greater than 13 oz. Conduct an appropriate hypothesis test using a 99% confidence interval, detail all the steps.

### What students are saying

• 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.
