Unformatted text preview: the conduction velocities are significantly slower in the poisoned individuals. (b). The hypotheses are Ho : & 2 = 25 versus Ha: & 2 > 25. Here s = 7 and n=16. Testing at = 0.05, the c.v. = 25.0. Calculate 2 = 29.4 which is bigger than the c.v. And 0.01< Pvalue < 0.025, so reject Ho . That is, the data indicates that the poisoned individuals are more variable in their sciatic nerve conduction velocities than normal individuals. 7. s 2 = 1.33 (calculated from the given data) The hypotheses are Ho : & 2 = 0.92 versus Ha: & 2 > 0.92. Here n=16. Testing at = 0.05, the c.v. = 25.0. Calculate 2 = 21.68 which is less than the c.v. And Pvalue > 0.1, so there is no enough evidence to reject Ho . That is, the data doesnt provide enough evidence that the population variance is greater than 0.92....
