10) The College Board SAT college entrance exam consists of three parts: math, writing and critical reading ( The World Almanac 2012). Sample data showing the math and writing scores for a sample of twelve students who took the SAT follow. Click on the webfile logo to reference the data. a. Use a .05 level of significance and test for a difference between the population mean for the math scores and the population mean for the writing scores. What is the test statistic? Enter negative values as negative numbers. Round your answer to two decimal places. t = DID NOT GET ANSWER What is the p -value? Round your answer to four decimal places. DID NOT GET ANSWER

c. What is the point estimate of the difference between the mean scores for the two tests? 25 What are the estimates of the population mean scores for the two tests? Math test 514 Writing test 489 Which test reports the higher mean score? MATH TEST

11) A manufacturer produces both a deluxe and a standard model of an automatic sander designed for home use. Selling prices obtained from a sample of retail outlets follow. Excel File: data10-27.xls Round your answers to 2 decimal places. a. The manufacturer's suggested retail prices for the two models show a $10 price differential. Use a .05 level of significance and test that the mean difference between the prices of the two models is $10. DO NOT REJECT THE NULL HYPOTHESES (HO=10) b. What is the 95% confidence interval for the difference between the mean prices of the two models? (to 2 decimals) to DID NOT GET ANSWER TO B

12) Consider the following results for independent samples taken from two populations. Sample 1 Sample 2 n 1 = 500 n 2 = 300 p 1 = 0.42 p 2 = 0.34 a. What is the point estimate of the difference between the two population proportions (to 2 decimals)? P1 – P2 = 0.42 – 0.34 = .08 =.08 b. Develop a 90% confidence interval for the difference between the two population proportions (to 4 decimals). to POINT ESTIMATE (+/-) MARGIN OF ERROR AKA Z VALUE * STANDARD ERROR Square root of ((.42(1-.42) / 500)) + ((.34(1-.34)/300)) Standard error =.0494 90% alpha Z= 1.645 1.645 * .0494 = .0813

point estimate (+/-) .0813 = -.0013 to .1613 INCORRECT c. Develop a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the two population proportions (to 4 decimals). to .0494 * 1.96 = .0968 margin of error = 0.0968 .08 (+/-) .0968 = INCORRECT

13) Consider the hypothesis test below. H 0 : p 1 - p 2 0 H a : p 1 - p 2 > 0 The following results are for independent samples taken from the two populations. Sample 1 Sample 2 n 1 = 200 n 2 = 300 p 1 = 0.29 p 2 = 0.11 Use pooled estimator of p . a. What is the value of the test statistic (to 2 decimals)? (200 * .29 + 300 * .11) / (200 + 300) = .182 USING ABOVE FORMULA ((.29-.11) / SQUARE ROOT OF .182(1-.182) (500) Z VALUE=.0208 =.5080

b. What is the p -value (to 4 decimals)? 1 - .5080 =.492 WRONG c. With = .05, what is your hypothesis testing conclusion? Conclude the difference between the proportions is greater than 0

14) The Professional Golf Association (PGA) measured the putting accuracy of professional golfers playing on the PGA Tour and the best amateur golfers playing in the World Amateur Championship ( Golf Magazine, January 2007). A sample of 1075 6-foot putts by professional golfers found 688 made putts. A sample of 1200 6- foot putts by amateur golfers found 696 made putts.
