ECN 206E — Statistics II Problem Set 9 Spring ’18 Exercise 14.1 A random sample of 150 residents in one community was asked to indicate their first preference for one of three television stations that air the 5 p.m. news. The results obtained are shown in the following table. Test the null hypothesis that for this population their first preferences are evenly distributed over the three stations. Station A B C Number of first preferences 47 42 61 Answer: H 0 : First preferences are evenly distributed over the three stations. H 1 : Otherwise Station A B C Total Observed Number of first preferences 47 42 61 150 Probability ( H 0 ) 0.3333 0.3333 0.3333 1.000 Expected Number 50 50 50 150 Chi-Square calculation 0.18 1.28 2.42 3.88 Chi-square calculation: χ 2 = ( O i - E i ) 2 E i = 3 . 88 χ 2 2 , 0 . 10 = 4 . 61; Therefore, fail to reject H 0 at the 10% level. Exercise 14.6 A campus administrator has found that 60% of all students view courses as very useful, 20%, as somewhat useful, and 20%, as worthless. Of a random sample of 100 students taking business courses, 68 found the course in question very useful, 18, somewhat useful, and 14, worthless. Test the null hypothesis that the population distribution for business courses is the same as that for all courses. Answer: H 0 : Student opinion of business courses is the same as that for all courses. H 1 : otherwise Opinion Very Useful Somewhat Worthless Total Observed Number 68 18 14 100 Probability ( H 0 ) 0.6 0.2 0.2 1 Expected Number 60 20 20 100 Chi-Square calculation 1.066666667 0.2 1.8 3.066667 Chi-square calculation: χ 2 = ( O i - E i ) 2 E i = 3 . 067 χ 2 2 , 0 . 10 = 4 . 61; Therefore, do not reject H 0 at the 10% level. 1/6 T.A.

    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.
