Examination 2 (100 points) Name NOTE: Please show all work to obtain full credit. 1. Trace metals in drinking water affect the flavor and an unusually high concentration can pose a
health hazard. Ten pairs of data were taken measuring zinc concentration in bottom water and
surface water from various locations of a stream. Do the data suggest that the true average
concentration of zinc in the bottom water exceeds that of surface water? The data are given
below aggregated: Location Bottom Surface Difference cl 1 .430 .415 .015

assume that the differences dz have an approximately Normal distribution. (a) (10) Compute a t—statistic to test the research hypothesis that the mean zinc concentration
in the bottom water exceeds that of surface water. State the null and alternative
hypothesis in terms of ,ud. Compute an approximate p—value and make the decision using oz = 0.05.

hence'saier than regular cars. However, data have indicated that the costs of repairs for SUVs are
higher than for midsize cars when both vehicles are in an accident. To verify this observation, a
random sample of 9 new SUVs and 8 midsize cars are tested for front impact resistance. The
amounts of damage (in hundreds of dollars) to the vehicles when crashed at 20 mph head—on into
a stationary barrier are recorded below: Vehicle Damage (in $100’s) g

population variances is plausible or not? Explain. Perform a statistical test using
