Consulting the Mann-Whitney table at 0.05 level, T would need to be less than or equal to 88 to reject. It is not, so we conclude that there is no evidence that genetic diversity affects abundance ( p > . 05). (b) (4 points) Since the deviations from respective medi- ans are exactly the same in both groups, the p-value would be exactly 1. Thus, p > 0 . 20 is the correct choice. (c) (2 points) True. We only get as many df as number of pairs. (d) (2 points) True. If there is more variability between sample units than there is within a sample unit, pair- ing is usually a good idea. (e) (4 points) Power = α when the true difference equals the difference under the null, which is zero in this example. Thus, the solid curve is not correct be- cause the power is less than 0.05 at zero. Of the two other curves, the one that slopes up more steeply (dot-dashed) has the higher sample size of 30. It has a value of 0.85 at a difference of 1, and thus the an- swer is n = 30. 3 (22 points) df Trt = 3 - 1 = 2, df Err = 8 + 6 + 4 - 3 = 15, and df Tot = 2 + 15 = 17. The grand mean is

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.
