surface, spinning it, and then waiting for it to land on a side. Your instructor actually conducted 50 such spinnings of a 1962 penny and obtaind 43 tails in 50 tria s t eallyl). A fellow statistical educator claims that tails comes up 90% of the time. Do you believe him?

actually shows how [.1 may be computed exactly. 3. (28 pts.) pvalue Hypothesis Test: The production of a nationally marketed detergent results in certain
workers receiving prolonged exposure to Bacillus subtilis enzyme. Nineteen workers were tested2 to
determine the effects of this exposure. In particular, a measure of airﬂow rate3 was computed for each
worker. Suppose that if the enzyme has an effect that this will result in a reduction in the airﬂow rate. M
Here are thata values (of airﬂow rate) sorted from smallest to largest: 0.61 0.63 0.64 0.67 0.70 0.72 0.73 0.74 0.76 0.78
