PSTAT 5E, Fall 2011 1. A group of 24 randomly selected students have a mean score of 30.8 with a standard deviation of 4.5
on a placement test. Assume that these data come from a population that is normally distributed.

with dinner and also whether they usually fall asleep within 20 minutes of going to bed. Do not drink wine Total

the cold or ﬂu. A random sample of 180 individuals were selected and asked whether they regular wash
their hands and whether they had recently been sick. The data is given below: Wash hands Do not wash hands Recently sick
