Customers of the Sky Mountain Grocery chain are routinely asked at the checkout whether they prefer paper or plastic bags for their purchases. In a recent study, researchers observed the type of bag specified and surveyed the customer for other information, including his or her level of education. For the 175 persons in the sample, bag selection and education levels were shown below. At the 0.01 level, is bag selection independent of education level? Based on the chi
square table, what is the most accurate statement that can be made about the p
value for the test? Bag Paper Selection Plastic No Preference 1

For the following data obtained from three independent samples, use the 0.05 level in testing H0: p1= p2= p3 versus H1 : “ At least one population proportion different from the others.” n1 = 100 n2 = 120 n3 = 200 p1 = 0.20 p2 = 0.25 p3 = 0.18 PROBLEM # 9.18
An investment firm survey included the finding that 52% of 150 clients describing themselves as “very aggressive” investors said they were optimistic about the near
term future stock market, compared to 46% of 100 describing themselves as “moderate” and 38% of 100 describing themselves as “conservative.” Use the 0.01 level in testing whether the three population proportions could be the same. 8 Understanding the Basics: Suggested Problems from the Book. 14.1 Chi
