APPM 4/5570 Solutions to Problems from Section 9.1 and 9.2 3. Test statistic Z = X - Y - 5000 r S 2 1 n 1 + S 2 2 n 2 = 42 , 500 - 40 , 400 - 5000 q 2200 2 45 + 1900 2 45 ≈ - 6 . 69 The rejection region is the upper tail area under the z -curve above the value 2 . 33. Conclusion: The test statistic is definitely not in there or even close! We fail to reject H 0 in favor of H a at 0 . 01 level of significance or at any almost other level! The data does not at all suggest that the premium brand has a true average tread life that is at least 5 , 000 more than that for the economy brand. The P-value for this problem is approximately 1 . 000. 7. Let μ 1 be the true mean boredom proneness rating for males and let μ 2 be the true mean boredom proneness rating for females. Hypotheses: H 0 : μ 1 - μ 2 = 0 H a : μ 1 - μ 2 > 0 Test Statistic: Z = X - Y - 5000 r S 2 1 n 1 + S 2 2 n 2 = 10 . 40 - 9 . 26 - 0 q 4 . 83 2 97 + 4 . 68 2 148 1 . 83 Rejection Region: The rejection region is the upper tail area under the z -curve above the value 1 . 645.

    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.
