1 CHAPTER 13 SECTION 5: INFERENCE ABOUT COMPARING TWO POPULATIONS MULTIPLE CHOICE 129. In constructing a confidence interval estimate for the difference between two population proportions, we: a. pool the population proportions when the populations are normally distributed. b. pool the population proportions when the population means are equal. c. pool the population proportions when they are equal. d. never pool the population proportions. ANS: D PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 13.5 130. For testing the difference between two population proportions, the pooled proportion estimate should be used to compute the value of the test statistic when the: 131. Which of the following is a required condition for using the normal approximation to the binomial in testing the difference between two population proportions? 132. For testing the difference between two population proportions, the pooled proportion estimate is found by taking:

2 133. The pooled proportion estimate is used when: a. the proportion of successes from sample 1 equals the proportion of successes from sample 2. b. the total number of successes in both samples divided by the total of both sample sizes equals 1. c. the null hypothesis states that the two population proportions differ by some non-zero number. d. None of these choices. ANS: D PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 13.5 TRUE/FALSE 134. In comparing two population means the statistic under consideration is p 8 1 - p 8 2 . ANS: F PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 13.5 135. The pooled proportion estimate is used when the null hypothesis states that the two population proportions differ by some non-zero number. ANS: F PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 13.5 136. The pooled proportion estimate is found by taking the proportion of successes from sample 1 plus the proportion of successes from sample 2. ANS: F PTS: 1 REF: SECTION 13.5 137. A required condition for using the normal approximation to the binomial in testing the difference between two population proportions is that n 1 p 1 30 and n 2 p 2 30.

### 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.
