Question #1 This question is based on example #1 on page 42 (slide 14) of your course packet. Furniture World is a manufacturer of office furniture. They have come out with a new computer desk, and have asked their factory manager for a job design to get it produced. She has narrowed it down to two possibilities; Design A (population 1) , and Design B (population 2) . She gathered samples of 25 for each design type. Data can be found here . You can assume production time variances are equal. Is either design quicker? What is the relevant point estimate? 0.272 What is the value of the test statistic? 0.927332603 This test statistic has A t distribution A standard normal distribution A chi-squared distribution What is the p-value for this test? 0.358393488

Allowing for a 10% chance of a Type I error, what is your conclusion for this test? Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that one design is quicker than the other one. Do not reject the null hypothesis and conclude that one design is quicker than the other one. Do not reject the null hypothesis; therefore, there is not enough evidence to conclude that one design is quicker than the other one. Reject the null hypothesis; therefore, there is not enough evidence to conclude that one design is quicker than the other one. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the difference in production time between design A and design B. The LCL and the UCL are: -0.317748104 and 0.861748104 Question #2 This question is based on exercise #2 on page 43 (slide 17) of your course packet. A publisher is interested in the effects of sales of college texts that include more than 100 data files. The publisher plans to produce 20 texts in the
business area, and randomly selects 10 to have more than 100 data files. The remaining 10 are produced with at most 100 data files. For those with more than 100, first year sales averaged 9254, and the sample standard deviation was 2107. For the books with at most 100, average first year sales were 8167, and the sample standard deviation was 1681. Assuming the two populations are normal, with the same variance, test the null hypothesis that the population means are equal against the alternative hypothesis that the true mean is higher for books with more than 100 data files.

### 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.
