6.(a) They probably had different means ¯ y from their samples, and different sample sizes n . Jack could have done a 2-sided test and Joe a 1-sided test (al- though both worked correctly, so hopefully used the same test!). Answers questioning the correct- ness of their sampling procedure did not receive full credit: Even when we work correctly, 2 ex- perimenters rarely obtain the same p-value (never same ¯ y ). (b) Jack, because he has the smallest p-value. Z and p-values vary in opposite directions. (c) H 0 : μ = 3 . 2g vs. H A : μ > 3 . 2g. We choose a one-sided alternative because there is prior infor- mation about other related species (the 2-sided alternative was accepted if good justification was provided). z = 1 . 465 and p-value= . 072. Weak evidence against a mean weight of 3.2g for adult females. Frequency 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 0 10 20 30 Summary of grades 63 74 82.5 1

### What students are saying

• 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.
