To investigate this question, 5 fraternity members, and 5 non-fraternity members were randomly selected among the class of 1998. It was found that their GPA are as follows: Fraternity members 2 1 2 3 2 Non-fraternity members 3 4 3 3 2 (a) Please test the research hypothesis at the significance level 0.05 (b) What assumption(s) did you assume in the above test? 2. A new weight-reducing diet is currently undergoing tests by the Food and Drug Administration(FDA). A typical test is the following: The weights of a random sample of five people are recorded before the diet as well as three weeks after the diet. The results (in pounds) are as follows: (a) Please construct a confidence interval for the difference between the mean weights before and after the diet is used. (b) At the significance level 0.05, can you conclude that the diet is effective? 3. A local eat-in-pizza restaurant wants to investigate the possibility of starting to deliver pizzas. The owner of the store has determined that the home delivery would be successful if the average time spent on the deliveries does not exceed 38 minutes. The owner has randomly selected 16 customers and has delivered pizza to their homes. He found that the average delivery time was 35 minutes with a standard deviation of 5 minutes. (a) At the significance level 0.05, can you conclude that the average delivery time would not exceed 38 minutes? (b) What is the p-value of your test? (c) Please construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean delivery time. 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.
