6. In the early lesson on hypothesis testing, the following statement was found in the summary (talking about comparing two population mean values): The p value is a useful measure of evidence against the null hypothesis. But one must be careful because a small p value can be due to either (i) a large population mean difference and small sample sizes or (ii) a small population mean difference and large sample sizes. For which of those two situations would we say we have a statistically significant result but not likely a practically significant result ? A. (i) B. (ii) 7. When is Pr ( A or B )= Pr ( A )+ Pr ( B )? A. Always. B. Never. C. Only when A and B are statistically independent events. D. Only when A and B are mutually exclusive events. E. None of the above. 8. When is Pr ( A and B )= Pr ( A ) Pr ( B )? A. Always. B. Never. C. Only when A and B are statistically independent events. D. Only when A and B are mutually exclusive events. E. None of the above. 9. We are studying a population with unknown mean μ and standard deviation that we guess is around 3. We plan to take a random sample and want to construct a 95% confidence interval of length 2 (right endpoint - left endpoint = 2). How large should the sample size be?
