STAT 4220 HW4 (35 points) Due on Tue, March 2 1. Consider the practice exam problem involving the analysis of some data on length of cuckoo eggs. A study by E.B. Chance in 1940 called “The Truth About the Cuckoo” demonstrated that cuckoos return year after year to the same territory and lay their eggs in the nests of other (host) birds. The eggs are then adopted and hatched by the host birds. It is of interest to see whether the length of the cuckoo eggs vary with the type of host bird that hatches the eggs. From a large population of host birds, six were chosen at random. The lengths of 120 cuckoo eggs found in the nests of these six birds were measured in millimeter. The type of birds and the number of eggs measured in their nests is given below: Meadow Pipit (MDWP) - 45 eggs were found and measured. Tree Pipit (TRP) - 15 eggs were found and measured. Hedge Sparrow (HGSPRW) - 14 eggs were found and measured. Robin (RBN) - 16 eggs were found and measured.
