VARIANCES 8.1 (a) The sample variance 32 is given by 2 1 s =n_1Z(xi—:E)2 = 17.6 Thus, the sample standard deviation is \/ 17.6 = 4.195. (b) The minimum observation is 21. The maximum observation is 32. thus, the range is 11. Since the sample size is 6, the expected length of the range is 2.5340. Thus, we estimate a by 11/2.534 = 4.341. _ 8.2 The range of the data is 8140 — 7840 = 300. Since the sample size is 6, the estimate
is 300/ 2.534 = 118.39. The sample standard deviation is 104.50.
8.3 (a) The sample standard deviation is 1.787. (b) The range of the data is 68.4 — 61.8 = 6.6. The sample size is 10, so the esti—
mate of the standard deviation is 6.6/ 3.07 8 = 2.144. The relative difference 253 254 8.4 8.5 8.6 Chapter 8 INF ERENCES CONCERNING VARIANCES is
2.144 — 1.787 1.787  100 = 20.0 percent. The sample variance is 10.28571. The sample size is 8. The >801 /2 with 7 degrees
of freedom is 20.278 and ximﬂ with 7 degrees of freedom is .989. Thus, if the data are from a normal population, a 99 percent conﬁdence interval for 02 is 7(10.28571) < 02
20.278 7(10.28571) < .989 01' 3.55 < 02 < 72.80. The sample variance is .025. Since the sample size is 5, the x201 /2 with 4 degrees
of freedom is 14.860 and x101 /2 with 4 degrees of freedom is .207. Thus, if the data are from a normal population, a 99 percent conﬁdence interval for a2 is 4(.025) 2 < a 4(.025)
14.860 .207 < 01‘ .0067 < 02 < .483, and the 99 percent conﬁdence interval for the standard deviation is .082 < 0' < .695 The sample variance is 1.787 and the sample size is 10. The ﬂog/2 with 9 degrees
of freedom is 21.666 and xim/g with 9 degrees of freedom is 2.088. If the data are from a normal population, a 98 percent conﬁdence interval for a is 9  (1.787)2

Assuming a normal population, we use the statistic

X “ —"—2 ~
00 Since the alternative is a > 600, we reject the null hypothesis 0 = 600 if X2 > X205
with 5 degrees of freedom or if X2 > 11.076. In this case, 3 = 648 so the test statistic
2 M _ 6002 =5.832. X Thus, we cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .05 level of signiﬁcance. If the data are from a normal population, we can use the statistic 2: (71—1)le2 X
03 The null hypothesis is 0 = .010 and the alternative is a $5 .010. Since the sample
size is 12, we reject the null hypothesis if X2 > )801/2 with 11 degrees of freedom
or if X2 < xim/Z with 11 degrees of freedom. Thus, we reject the null hypothesis
0 =_ .010 if X2 > 26757 or if X2 < 2.603. In this case, 5 = .0086 and the test statistic
2 = 11(.0086)2 (.010? = 8.136 X so we cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .01 level of significance. Since the data are from a normal population, we can use the statistic

00 The null hypothesis is a = 15.0 and the alternative is a > 15.0. 'Since the sample 256 8.10 8.11 Chapter 8 INFERENCES CONCERNING VARIANCES size is 71, we reject the null hypothesis if X2 > X205 with'70 degrees of freedom
Thus, we reject the null hypothesis 0 = 15.0 if X2 > 90.531. In this case, 8 = 19.3 minutes and the test statistic 2 2 70119.3)2 (15 (D2 = 115.886 X so we reject the null hypothesis 0 = 15.0 in favor of the alternative 0 > 15.0, at the .05 level of signiﬁcance. The sample variance is .92 = .00011 and the sample size is 15. The null hypothesis
is a = .015 and the alternative is a 74 .015. Thus, since the data are from a normal
population, we can use the statistic 2 (n —1)S2 0% X We reject the null hypothesis when X2 > x201 /2 with 14 degrees of freedom or when
X2 < ximﬂ with 14 degrees of freedom. Thus, we reject the null hypothesis when
X2 > 31.319 or when X2 < 4.075. In this case 2 z 14 (.00011) (.015? = 6.884 X so we cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .01 level of signiﬁcance. The sample standard deviation is s = 1.32 and the sample size is 10. If the data are from a normal population, we can use the statistic 2 = (n— 1)S2 x
08 The null hypothesis is a = 1.20 and the alternative is a > 1.20. Thus, we reject
the null hypothesis when X2 > xﬁm with 9 degrees of freedom or when X2 > 16.919. 257 In this case 3 = 1.32 so 9  (1.32)2

(70 We reject the null hypothesis when X2 > xin/Z with 30 degrees of freedom or when X2 < xfﬁom with 30 degrees of freedom. Thus, we reject the null hypothesis when

X (2.0)2 8 so we cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .01 level of signiﬁcance. 8.13 Since Exercise 7.67 states that the two samples can be assumed to be from normal populations, we can use the statistic _S%4 F—g which has an F distribution with n M —— 1 and mm — 1 degrees of freedom. The null hypothesis is of = 0% and the alternative hypothesis is of 75 0%. The sample sizes are n M = 8 and nm = 10 . Thus, we reject the null hypothesis when F > Fog/2(7, 9)
or when F > 5.61. In this case is?” = (1.81)2 and 8371 = (1.48)2 so 1.81 2
F ~ _ 1.496. 258 8.14 8.15 8.16 Chapter 8 INFERENCES CONCERNING VARIANCES Thus, we cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .02 level of signiﬁcance. Since the two samples can be assumed to be from normal populations, we can use
the statistic
F _ a

m which has an F distribution with 71M — 1 and mm — 1 degrees of freedom. The 2 null hypothesis is 01 = 0% and the alternative hypothesis is of 74 0%. The sample sizes are rm 2 10 and nm = 10. Thus, we reject the null hypothesis when F > Fog/2(9,9) = 5.35. In this case 3?” = 29.111 and 53,, = 11.333 so F_ 29.111 — = 2.57.
11.333 We cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .02 level of signiﬁcance. The null hypothesis 0% = 0% and the alternative hypothesis is of < 0%. Therefore,
we use the statistic

F = J—
512 which has an F distribution with m — 1 = 20 and n1 — 1 = 14 degrees of freedom. The null hypothesis of = of < a; if F > F01(20,14) = 3.51. In this case 4.2 2

assumes that the two samples come from normal populations and that the samples are independent. The null hypothesis of = a; and the alternative hypothesis is a; > 0%. Since the 259 two samples come from normal populations, we can use the statistic _53 F__
512 which has an F distribution with 712 — 1 = 29 and n1 — 1 = 39 degrees of freedom. The null hypothesis of = a; will be rejected favor of the alternative hypothesis 0% > 012 if F > F05(29,39) = 1.76. In this case 18.7 2
F4 _ 1.51 so we cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .05 level of signiﬁcance. 8.17 (a) The two samples are not from normal populations so we cannot directly use a twosample t test. Also, the population variances may be unequal. (b) If we take the logarithm of each observation, then the transformed data are
samples from two normal populations. On this scale, we can then apply
the F test for the equality of variances. Speciﬁcally, we would test the null hypothesis of = 03 versus the alternative hypothesis of 79 0% using the logarithms of the original data. 8.18 The sample size is 5 and ﬁes/2 with 4 degrees of freedom is 11.143 and X105”

ximﬂ with 57 degrees of freedom is 38.0. The sample standard deviation is 1.80. 260 8.20 8.21 Chapter 8 INF ERENCES CONCERNING VARIANCES Thus, the 95 percent conﬁdence interval for 01 is‘ 57  (1.80)?

The sample standard deviation is 4.9 and s2 = (4.9)2 = 24.01. The sample size is 25, the X?05/2 with 24 degrees of freedom is 39.364 and x§__05/2 with 24 degrees of freedom is 12.401. Thus, assuming the data are from a normal population, the 95 percent conﬁdence interval for a is

08 We reject the null hypothesis if X2 < X51205 with 24 degrees of freedom or when
X2 < 13.484. In this case, 2 = 24 . (4.9)2 X = 19.21. Thus, we cannot reject the null hypothesis at the .05 level of signiﬁcance. The sample standard deviation is .83 degree Celsius and the sample size is 31.
The X202” with 30 degrees of freedom is 50.892 and xim/Q with 30 degrees of

alternative is 02 75 .18. The sample variance is .13. If the data are from a normal population, we can use the statistic 2 (n —1)S2 X
08 We reject the null hypothesis if X2 > x_205/2 = 129.561 or when X2 < xfﬁowg 262 8.24 Chapter 8 INFERENCES CONCERNING VARIANCES 74.222 . In this case,
2 (100)(.13) X = 7222. Thus, we reject the null hypothesis 02 = .18, in favor of the alternative 02 7é .18, at the .05 level of signiﬁcance. The inspector is not making satisfactory measure— ments. The sample variance of the ﬁrst sample is 109 and the sample size is 9. The sample
variance of the second sample is 160.967 and the sample size is 6. Since the two samples can be assumed to be from normal populations, we can use the statistic St

The variance of the second sample is 2.681 and the sample size is 8. The null hypothesis of = a; I and the alternative hypothesis is of 7é 03. Assuming normal populations we use the statistic St
