Practice Questions IIa - Solutions 1. Assume you are sampling from a Normal Distribution with unknown mean and variance. a) You draw a sample of size 10 and calculate a sample mean of 33 and a sample variance of 225. Test the Null Hypothesis that the true mean of the distribution is equal to 22 and report the p-value. Also report if you can reject the null hypothesis at a 10%, 5%, 1% level. Calculate the t-statistic as 33 22 2.31 225 10 t - = = . This value would allow us to reject the null hypothesis at all levels a 10% (one-sided and 2-sided), 5% (one-sided and 2- sided). However, we don’t know the underlying distribution. Unless we know it is normal we cannot do the hypothesis test unless we take a bigger sample so that the CLT applies. b) Why is the above test not valid if the underlying distribution is not known? The CLT does not apply. 2. Assume you sample from Chi-square Distribution (mean K, variance 2K) a) What is the mean and variance of the sample mean?

    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.
