Unformatted text preview: adhifiz RQWEW /\ Problem 1 F A SRS of 1000 adults asks if they agree with the statement “I support President Obama.” Suppose that 90% of all US adults would agree if asked this question so the population parameter: 0.9. Round the standard deviation of the sample proportion 13 to four decimal places. Using that rounded number, What is the probability that the survey result differs from the truth about the population by more than 2 percentage points? (Use z-scores that actually appear in Table A.

Researchers randomly assigned 100 beginning students of Russian to begin speaking practice immediately and another 100 to delay speaking for 4 weeks. At the end of the semester both groups took a standard test of comprehension of spoken Russian. Suppose that in the population of all beginning students, the test scores for early speaking vary according to the N(133, 30) distribution and scores for delayed speaking have the N(130, 40) distribution.

Problem 6 Suppose that the proportion of male voters who support candidate Wilson is 0.54 (gm = 0.54). Suppose that the proportion of female voters Who support candidate Wilson is 0.51 (pp = 0.51). A sample survey interviews SRSs of 40 male voters (from a population of 100,000) and 40 female voters (fiom a population of 100,000). The samples are independent.
