James Holman Final Project Introduction A company called Nyke makes shoes of various sizes for females and males. Lately, the company has undergone financial hardships. Unless the CEO makes a change in its business, Nyke will have to file for Chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy depending on the situation. That change to be effected is to make shoes of only one size irrespective of height and gender. There is a possibility that this move will save the company from going under the water. Descriptive statistics and statistical testings will be applied to a set of data to determine the best choice of one specific size. The data will be explored and explained in details. There will be conclusions to be made, but they will be either accepted or rejected based on the other supporting statistics. Finally, one size will be chosen. However, if more data can be included, they have more impact on the final conclusion. Methodology A normally distributed data set of eighteen female shoe sizes and seventeen male shoe sizes was analyzed through Quattro Pro X4 Version 14.0.0.677, a Corel program. The data including both genders was looked at in one set and then broken down in two separate categories: females and males. Descriptive statistics were applied to each of the three data sets. Then, the two data sets, females and males separately, were tested by a two-sampled t-test, assuming that they both have equal variances. Afterwards, it was tested again by a two-sampled t-Test, assuming they both have unequal variances. After the data had been crunched and their null/research hypotheses have been tested, the conclusions will be made.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
