Unformatted text preview: 1. True of False Questions (30 points): ® F a) If the population mean is known, there is no reason to run a hypothesis test on he population mean. T ® b) The P—value is usually chosen before an experiment is conducted. Cf) F c) In conducting a hypothesis test, it is impossible to simultaneously make both a Type I error and a Type II error. T @ d) The probability of a Type 11 error does not depend on the probability of a Type I error. T G) e) While the normal distribution is symmetric, the t—Idistributions are slightly skewed. CT) F f) The greater the (if, the closer the t—distributions are to the normal distribution. ('13 F g) If there is sufficient evidence to reject a null hypothesis at the 5% level, then there is sufficient evidence4,to reject it at the 10% level. _ 'Pva-baua c 8.2, < i 070 T ® h) In a study of high school students, a positive correlation (r = 0.95) was found between hours spent per week doing homework and scores 0n standardized achievement tests. We can conclude that doing homework helps prepare students for these tests from the data. T ® i) The sample correlation coefficient for the following 10 pairs of data (1, 2), (2, 4), (3, 8), (4, 16), (5, 32), (6, 64), (7', 128'), (8,256), (9, 512), (10, 1024) is approximately 1 because 3; = 23.
