Questions 1 – 4 refer to the following.
Suppose a math instructor believes that the proportion of students who passed Exam 1 was lower
in afternoon classes (A) than in morning classes (M). In a sample of her afternoon students 15
out of 29 students passed Exam 1.
In a sample of her morning students 17 out of 27 students
passed Exam 1.
Should we conclude that that instructor’s belief is correct?

The rescuing of 33 miners trapped in a Chilean mine for 69 days captured the world’s attention.
The lead driller, Jeff Hart, and his team were from Colorado, USA.
Suppose you are interested in
finding out if the percent of Americans who know about Jeff Hart is higher than 10%.
(He and his
team are national heroes in Chile.)
The type of hypothesis test you would use is:
A.
single proportion
B.
two independent means; student tdistribution
C.

D.
two population proportions; normal distribution
Questions 6  8 refer to the following.
A survey of 91 people was done to see if there was a difference between their right arm and left
arm readings for systolic blood pressure.
The survey found an average difference of 2.4 mm Hg
with a standard deviation of 5.4.
At a 5% level of significance, is there a difference in systolic
blood pressure measurements where the differences were computed as “right arm systolic minus
left arm systolic”?
This is the end of the preview.
