Review for TEST II Make sure to identify all elements of Test of Hypothesis and Confidence Interval, such as : Point estimator, Sampling Error, Test statistic, Critical value, P-value, Rejection Region, Level of significance, Error type I and II, Null and Alternate hypotheses, Assumptions. Good luck! 1. A salesman for a shoe company claimed that runners would record quicker times, on the average, with the company's brand of sneaker. A track coach decided to test the claim. The coach selected eight runners. Each runner ran two 100-yard dashes on different days. In one 100-yard dash, the runners wore the sneakers supplied by the school; in the other, they wore the sneakers supplied by the salesman. Each runner was randomly assigned the sneakers to wear for the first run. Their times, measured in seconds, were as follows: Sneakers 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Company 10.8 12.3 10.7 12.0 10.6 11.5 12.1 11.2 School 11.4 12.5 10.8 11.7 10.9 11.8 12.2 11.7 Note. For the differences, D X = -.225 and D s = .276. Assume the population of differences is normal. 2. A new insect spray, type A, is to be compared with a spray, type B, that is currently in use. Two rooms of equal size are sprayed with the same amount of spray, one room with A, the other with B. Two hundred insects are released into each room, and after 1 hour the numbers of dead insects are counted." There are 120 dead insects in the room sprayed with A and 90 in the room sprayed with B. Do the data provide enough evidence to indicate that spray A is more effective than spray B? Use α = .05. 3. To compare two methods of teaching reading, randomly selected groups of elementary school children were assigned to each of the two methods for a 6-month period. The criterion for measuring achievement was a reading comprehension test." The 11 students assigned to method I had a mean score of 64 with a variance of 52. The 14 students assigned to method II had a mean score of 69 with a variance of 71. Do the data provide enough evidence to indicate a difference in the mean scores on the comprehension test for the two teaching methods? Use α = .01. 4. Magnets are often used by people to treat a variety of disorders. Researchers recently treated a group of patients with magnets and another group of patients with a fake magnet treatment. The results are given below. Test the claim that the magnet treatment is more effective at lowering pain in arthritis patients: Treatment Group Placebo Group Sample size 35 35 Mean Pain Reduction 0.49 0.44 Standard Deviation 0.96 1.4 5. A study at the University of Michigan wants to determine student options regarding non-revenue-generating athletics. Specifically, one question in a survey asks students "Do you think the women's basketball program should be discontinued?" The data collected revealed that 100 of the 1,000 females surveyed responded "Yes" and that 400 of the 1,000 males surveyed responded "Yes". Suppose a 99% confidence interval resulted in the following confidence interval for the true difference in population proportions: (-.5, -.1). Interpret the interval.

    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.
