Unformatted text preview: Hank Ibser Statistics 21 Fall 2010 The final will be Monday, Dec 13, 11:302z30pm, location TBA. Please get there a little early as I may move people around a bit. The final will cover the following chapters as specified below: Ch 1: A11. Ch 2: Omit section 4; in Ch 1—2 you need to know the ideas and jargon
but not the specific examples. Ch 3: Omit sections 5—7. Ch 4: Omit stuff on longitudinal/cross~sectiona1 data in section 2.
Omit section 7 unless you are using a calculator to find SDs. Ch 5: Omit interquartile range (p89). Ch 6: Omit. Special review exercises 1,2,3,4,6,7,9,11 are good practice. Ch 7: Omit . Ch 8: Omit Review Ex #12. Ch 9: Omit section 4, technical note on p146—147. Ch 10: Omit technical note on p169. Ch 11: Omit section 3 and technical note on p197. Ch 12: Omit, in section 2, everything from "Now, an example." to the
end of the section (p208—211). Omit section 3. Omit Review Ex #12. Ch 13—20: All. At the end of Ch 15, good practice problems are
special review exercises 89, 1115, 17—20. Ch 21: Omit section 5. Ch 22: Omit, although you can do Rev Ex 5—12 for practice. Ch 23: A11. Ch 24,25: Omit. Ch 26: Omit Rev Ex 10—12. Ch 27—29: All. At the end of Ch 29, special review exercises 1, 4—28,
33, 35, and 36 are good practice problems. The exam will also cover the three handouts: 1) Summation, Average, and SD,
2) Summation and Correlation, and 3) Probability. I'll have 10 questions on the final, roughly 2—3 from the material on the
midterm, and 7—8 on the material since the midterm. You need to bring a
calculator and something to write with. No blue book necessary. You'll
get a normal table, t table, and Chi—square table on the exam. l. A box contains the following numbered tickets: l,l,5,9,9 a) If I draw two tickets with replacement, what is the chance that
the sum of the two tickets is greater than or equal to 10? b) Drawing three tickets without replacement, what is the chance
the first two tickets are not 5's, and the last ticket is a 5? c) Calculate b) if the draws are made with replacement. d) If I repeat the procedure in a) 8 times (ie draw 2 tickets and
find their sum, and do this 8 times), what is the chance that I get
a sum greater than or equal to 10 exactly 6 of the 8 times? 2. Weights and heights of turkeys tend to be correlated. For a
population of turkeys at a farm, this correlation is found to be
0.64. The average weight is 17 pounds, SD is 5 pounds. The average
height is 28 inches and the SD is 8 inches. Weight and height both roughly follow the normal curve. For each part below, answer
the question or if not possible, indicate why not. a) A turkey at the farm which weighs more than 90% of all the turkeys
is predicted to be taller than % of them. b) The average height for turkeys at the 90th percentile for weight
is . ' c) Of the turkeys at the 90th percentile for weight, roughly what
percent would you estimate to be taller than 28 inches? 3. A box has 3 red balls and 5 blue balls. a) I draw 3 balls from this box with replacement. Find the expected value and SE for the number of red balls.
b) Repeat a) if the draws are made without replacement. 4. Choose one of the following values of r for each example below. (—1, —.7, O, .7, 1). You may use some values more than once and you may
not use them all. For full credit choose a value and explain your choice
briefly. a) A group of employees all get a 10% cut in their salaries. What is the correlation between their salaries before the cut and after
the cut? b) The correlation between weight and belt size for a group of men all the same height. Everyone in a large lecture class flips a coin 100 times and records
the results. Then everyone in the class does this again. For parts
c)—e) keep these two sets of coin tosses in mind — each student provides
one data point. c) The correlation between the number of heads in the first set of 100
tosses and the number of heads in the second set of 100 tosses. d) The correlation between the number of heads in the first set of 100
tosses and the number of tails in the first set of 100 tosses. e) The correlation between the number of heads in the first set of 100
tosses and the number of tails in all 200 tosses. 5. I have 5 coins in my pocket: 2 quarters, 2 dimes, and a nickel.
a) I draw three coins without replacement. What is the chance that the third coin is the nickel?
b) I draw three coins without replacement. Find the expected value and the SE for the total value of these three coins. 6. I roll a sixsided die 4 times. Find chances for each of the following events: a) the first die roll is bigger than the second or the first roll is a 3.
b) all the numbers are different. c) not all the numbers rolled are even. 7. A group of married couples takes an IQ test. The average
husband's IQ is 105 with an SD of 15 and the average wife's IQ is 110 with an SD of 10. The correlation between husband's and wife's IQ is 0.5. a) A man has an IQ of 75, what would you predict his wife's IQ is?
b) Of all men with an IQ of 75, about what percent are smarter than
their wives? 8. The national percent of adults who have a laptop computer is 62%. In San Francisco, a simple random sample of 100 adults is taken and 69% of these adults have a laptop. Is this strong evidence that more adults in SF have laptops than the national average? a) State the null hypothesis and the alternative in terms of a box model.
b) Find 2 and p values. c) What do you conclude? 9. I take a simple random sample of 400 UC Berkeley students and another
simple random sample of 100 Stanford students. The average weight of the Berkeley students is 144 pounds with an SD of 26 pounds. The lightest
person in the sample weighs 98 pounds. In the Stanford sample, the
average weight is 147 pounds with an SD of 28 pounds. An exercise
physiologist claims that this is evidence that Berkeley students weigh
less than Stanford students. In order to support this claim, she does a hypothesis test. For parts a)—c), do the test even if you think it's
not appropriate. a) State the implicit null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis. b) Find 2 and p in the usual way. c) Based on the z and p values, what do you conclude? d) True or false, and explain briefly: The hypothesis test done here doesn't make sense because the Berkeley data
don't follow the normal curve. 10. Before a substance can be deemed safe for landfilling, its chemical
properties must be characterized. Sixty samples of sludge from a
wastewater treatment plant have an average pH of 6.6 and an SD of 3.5.
You may assume that these samples are like a simple random sample of all the sludge that comes from the plant. If possible, construct a 95% confidence interval for the average pH of all the sludge that comes from this plant. If this is not possible, explain why not. 11. The national average for cumulative SAT score was 1026 in 2003
and the SD was 105. SAT scores generally follow the normal curve
pretty closely. I take a SRS of 5 students from our Stat 21 class
and find that the average and SD in my sample are 1240 and 90. Do you believe that the class average is more than the 2003 national
average? If appropriate, do a hypothesis test to answer this
question, including null and alternative hypotheses, a box model,
test statistic, p—value, and interpret the pvalue. If it is not
appropriate to do a hypothesis test, explain why not. 12. Fans vote online for their favorite character — Bubbles, Blossom,
Buttercup, or Mojo Jojo. Out of the first 100 votes, 23 vote for Bubbles,
29 for Blossom, 37 for Buttercup, and 11 for Mojo Jojo. Mojo Jojo says,
"These results could have happened just by chance, people are just pressing
buttons at random and in fact all four of us have an equal number of fans."
Blossom says he's wrong, this couldn't have happened by chance. Construct
the hypothesis test implicit in Mojo Jojo's statement. Write out the null
and alternative hypotheses, find the appropriate test statistic, an
approximate P—value, and write out your conclusion. ‘6! Statistics 21 ' Problems from "past" this] exains . l. (10 points) A psychologist administrated a multiplechoice test to 122 college students.
Each question had ﬁve possible answers andonly one, was correct. The questions were
taken from the reading comprehension section of the SAT verbal test, with one important
change. The SAT presents short passages to read and follows these with multiplechoice
questions ‘about the meaning of the passages. For his test, the psychologist took only the
questions—not the reading passages. So someone taking the psychologist’s test has to
answer the SAT questions without having read the pass ages. Why make up such a crazy
test? The psychologist was trying to ﬁnd out whether this part of the SAT was really
. testing reading ability or some other testtaking skill. 'None of the 122 students had taken
the SAT. Their average score on the psychologist’s test turned out to be 38 points out of
.100. (There were 100 questions; a correct answer was worth one point and an incorrect
answer zero points.) The psychologist took the average of 38 as evidence that points can
be earned on this Part of the SAT by using mental skills other than the ability to
understand the passages. Of course, the psychologist realized that the students would get
some answers right just by luck. ' (a) Formulate the null hypothesis implicit in the above paragraph as a statement about a box model. (b) Calculate the appropriate tGSt statistic.

Correlation = 0.80 Age 20:
Age 40: The units for the reaction times are milliseconds. Of those whose reaction time was average at
age twenty, what percent had times at forty which were in the bottom quarter for the 1,200
men at that age? (You may assume the scatter diagram is football shaped.) (10 points) A computer program simulates drawing ﬁfty times at random, with replacement, ~ ‘ from the box:

same as the one directly above it. (10 points) A transportation study involves two suburbs of a large city. One suburb is a_ little
farther from the city center than the other. The investigators believe that living in the more
distant suburb adds, on average, not more than 2 minutes ‘to the commute time. The '
investigators take a simple random sample of 900 from the residents of the more distant
suburb, and a simple random sample of 400 from the residents of the more central suburb. In
the sample of 900 residents, the'ave'rage commute time on a particular day was 17.4 minutes;
the SD was 18.0 minutes. In the sample of 400 residents, the average commute time on that same day was 14.5; the SD was 15.0 minutes.

wanted to see if the drug clonidine was effective in helping people quit smoking. They took a
group of 185 smokers and chose 92 at random to receive the drug. The 93 remaining were
given a placebo. After four weeks of this treatment the researchers found that 17 of the 92, and 13 of the 93 were no longer smoking. What do you conclude? (Calculate the appropriate test statistics and ﬁnd the observed significance level.) (10 points) On a vocabulary test given to a sample of undergraduates at a large university,
15% of the men and 18% of the women knew the meaning of the word “arcane.” The group
tested consisted of a simple random sample of 400 from the male undergraduates, and
independently, a simple random sample of 225 from the female undergraduates. Does the difference of 3 percentage points mean that a larger percentage of women

andbm sample of 625 such business, and sends out a team of interviewers to these
businesses. The interviewers proceed to administer a questionnaire to all the employees of
each business in the sample. It turns out that the average number of employees in the sampled
businesses is 8.3 and the SD is 2.7. In 502 of the businesses in the sample, all the employees had 12 years or more of education. If possible, find a 95% conﬁdence interval for the percentage of small businesses in the city

city which are not covered by health insurance. The organization takes a simple random
sample of 900 households from the city. The sample is divided into two parts according to
the age of the head of the household. The ﬁrst part consisted of all households in the sample
where the head of the household is age 30 or under. There were 520 such households. The
second part consists of the households where the head is over 30. There were 380 of these
households. The table gives some of the ﬁndings from the sample. Age of Head of Households % Uninsured 32.5% 30 years or under
