1. DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS
1)MEAN QUESTION -FIND THE MEAN OF THE SET OF NUMBERS BELOW 3,4,-1,22,14,0,9,18,7,0,1 SOLUTION THE FIRST STEP IS TO COUNT HOW MANY NUMBERS THERE ARE IN THE SET, WHICH WE SHALL CALL N N=10 THE NEXT STEP IS TO ADD UP ALL THE NUMBERS IN THE SET SUM=3+4++-1+22+14+0+9+18+7+0+1 SUM=77 THE LAST STEP IS TO FIND THE ACTUAL MEAN BY DIVIDING THE SUM BY N MEAN=SUM/N MEAN=77/10 MEAN=7.7

2)MEDIAN FIND THE MEDIAN OF THE GIVEN DATA

SOLUTION AS IN THE PREVIOUS EXAMPLE, WE START OFF BY REARRANGING THE DATA IN ORDER FROM THE SMALLEST TO THE LARGEST.

NEXT WE INSPECT THE DATA TO FIND THE NUMBER THAT LIES IN THE EXACT MIDDLE.

WE CAN SEE FROM THE ABOVE THAT WE END UP WITH TWO NUMBERS (4 AND 5) IN THE MIDDLE. WE CAN SOLVE FOR THE MEDIAN BY FINDING THE MEAN OF THESE TWO NUMBERS AS FOLLOWS:

3)MODE FIND THE MODAL CLASS AND THE ACTUAL MODE OF THE DATA SET BELOW NUMBER FREQUENCY 1-3 4-6 7-9 10 - 12 13 - 15 16 - 18 19 - 21 22 - 24 25 - 27 28 - 30 SOLUTION MODAL CLASS = 10 - 12 7 6 4 2 2 8 1 2 3 2

WHERE L = 10 F1 = 9 F0 = 4 F2 = 2 H=3

THEREFORE,

2.PROBABILITY
A JAR CONTAINS 3 RED MARBLES, 7 GREEN MARBLES AND 10 WHITE MARBLES. IF A MARBLE IS DRAWN FROM THE JAR AT RANDOM, WHAT IS THE PROBABILITY THAT THIS MARBLE IS WHITE? SOLUTION : WE FIRST CONSTRUCT A TABLE OF FREQUENCIES THAT GIVES THE MARBLES COLOR DISTRIBUTIONS AS FOLLOWS COLOR FREQUENCY RED 3

GREEN 7 WHITE 10 WE NOW USE THE EMPIRICAL FORMULA OF THE PROBABILITY FREQUENCY FOR WHITE COLOR P(E)=
________________________________________________

TOTAL FREQUENCIES IN THE ABOVE TABLE = 10 / 20 = 1 / 2

3.BINOMIAL DISTRIBUTION
AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR ANTACID CLAIMS A 40% END OF TREATMENT CLINICAL SUCCESS RATE FOR THE TREATMENT OF GASTRITIS. 8 GASTRITIS PATIENTS ARE GIVEN THE ANTACID AND LATER CHECKED TO SEE IF TREATMENT WAS SUCCESSFUL. LET US ASSUME THAT THE CLAIM IS CORRECT. FIND THE PROBABILITY THAT: 1) EXACT 3 PATIENTS ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY. 2) AT MOST 5 PATIENTS ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY. 3) LESS THAN 4 PATIENTS ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY. 4) AT LEAST 2 PATIENTS ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY. 5) MORE THAN 3 PATIENTS ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY. 6) BETWEEN 3 AND 5 (BOTH INCLUDED) PATIENTS ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY. 7) BETWEEN 3 AND 6 (BOTH EXCLUDED) PATIENTS ARE TREATED SUCCESSFULLY.

5.NORMAL DISTRIBUTION
QUESTION - THE LENGTH OF HUMAN PREGNANCIES FROM CONCEPTION TO BIRTH APPROXIMATES A NORMAL DISTRIBUTION WITH A MEAN OF 266 DAYS AND A STANDARD DEVIATION OF 16 DAYS. WHAT PROPORTION OF ALL PREGNANCIES WILL LAST BETWEEN 240 AND 270 DAYS (ROUGHLY BETWEEN 8 AND 9 MONTHS)? ANSWER NORMAL DISTRIBUTION . Z=240-266/16=-1.265 Z=270-266/16=0.25 U= 2.66 SIGMA=16 P(240 < X < 270) = P(-1.63 < Z < 0.25) P(-1.63 < Z < 0.25) = P(Z< 0.25) - P(Z < -1.63)

P(-1.63 < Z < 0.25) = 0.5987 0.0516 =0.5471

6.CONFIDENCE INTERVAL
A HEALTHCARE COMPANY WANTS TO ESTIMATE THE AVERAGE LENGTH OF HEPATITIS B AWARENESS PROGRAMMES IN A YEAR. A RANDOM SAMPLE OF 25 PROGRAMMES GIVES A SAMPLE MEAN OF 14 MINS AND STANDARD DEVIATION IS 2.9 MINS. FIND OUT THE AVERAGE LENGTH OF A HEPATITIS B AWARENESS PROGRAM AT 95 % CONFIDENCE INTERVAL. ANS 5. GIVEN THAT MEAN = 14 MINUTES STANDARD DEVIATION = 2.9 MINUTES NOW WE KNOW THAT; UPPER LIMIT = +2S/N = 14+2*2.9/25 = 15.16 MINUTES. LOWER LIMIT= -2S/N =14-2*2.9/25 =12.84 MINUTES. CONCLUSION: WE ARE 95% CONFIDENT THAT THE AVERAGE LENGTH OF A HEPATITIS B AWARENESS PROGRAM WILL LIE BETWEEN 12.84 MINS 15.16 MINS.

7. BINOMIAL APPROXIMATION TO NORMAL (SINGLE POPULATION)


IN THE GALAXY RESEARCH INSTITUTE, 40% OF RESEARCH PROJECTS ARE LABELED PENDING FOR ANIMAL STUDY. WHAT IS THE PROBABILITY THAT OUT OF 110 RESEARCH PROJECTS RANDOMLY PICKED UP BY NEW RESEARCHER TO PERFORM FURTHER STUDY A. AT LEAST 47 WILL BE THOSE LABELED AS PENDING FOR ANIMAL STUDY. B. AT MOST 47 WILL BE T HOSE LABELED AS PENDING FOR ANIMAL STUDY. ANSWER - . N=110, P=0.4, Q=0.6, X=47 A. =N X P = 110X0.4 = 44 = NXPXQ = 110X0.4X0.6 = 2.517 Z = (X-) ------- = 47 44 --------------2.517 Z = 1.191

FROM STATISTICAL TABLE, AT Z = 1.191, PROBABILITY IS 0.3830 P(Z>1.191) = 0.5 0.3830 = 0.117 THIS MEANS WE CAN EXPECT AT LEAST 47 OUT OF 110 RESEARCH PROJECTS LABELED AS PENDING FOR ANIMAL STUDY HAVE A PROBABILITY OF 11.7% TO BE PICKED UP BY NEW RESEARCHER. B. P(Z<1.191) = 0.5+0.3830 = 0.8830 THIS MEANS WE CAN EXPECT AT LEAST 47 OUT OF 110 RESEARCH PROJECTS LABELED AS PENDING FOR ANIMAL STUDY HAVE A PROBABILITY OF 88.30% TO BE PICKED UP BY NEW RESEARCHER.

8 ONE WAY ANNOVA TEST


IN RESEARCH INSTITUTE IN HYDERABAD AN AUDIOLOGIST CONDUCTED A STUDY TO PREDICTS THAT THE STUDENTS WILL LEARN MORE EFFICIENTLY WITH A CONSTANT BACKGROUND SOUND AS OPPOSED TO AN UNPREDICTABLE SOUND OR NO SOUND AT ALL. HE RANDOMLY DIVIDES 24 STUDENTS IN 3 GROUPS OF 8. ALL STUDENTS STUDY A PASSAGE OF TEXT FOR 30 MINUTES. THOSE IN GROUP 1 STUDY WITH BACKGROUND SOUND AT A CONSTANT VOLUME. THOSE IN GROUP 2 STUDY WITH NOISE THAT CHANGES VOLUME PERIODICALLY. THOSE IN GROUP 3 STUDY WITH NO SOUND AT ALL. AFTER STUDYING, ALL STUDENTS TAKE A 10 POINT MULTIPLE CHOICE TEST OVER THE MATERIAL. ALPHA=0.01. TEST SCORES ARE AS FOLLOWS: GROUP TEST SCORES CONSTANT 7 4 6 8 6 6 2 9 SOUND RANDOM 5 5 3 4 4 7 2 2 SOUND NO SOUND 2 4 7 1 2 1 5 5 A HO: THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 3 STUDIES. H1: THERE IS SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 3 STUDIES.

9. F TEST
A HOSPITAL CONDUCTED A TIME AND MOTION STUDY TO CALCULATE THE DISCHARGE TIME FOR THE INPATIENTS. IN A TEST OF, TWO GROUPS OF 25 MEMBERS EACH TOOK 35 MINUTES & 29 MINUTES RESPECTIVELY TO COMPLETE THE DISCHARGING FORMALITIES. THE HOSPITAL WANTS TO KNOW THAT THE VARIANCE OF TIME REQUIRED IN COMPLETING THE DISCHARGE PROCESS IS APPROX. EQUAL. CARRY OUT THE TEST USING = 0.1 ANSWER -

HO = VARIANCE OF TIME REQUIRED FOR COMPLETING THE DISCHARGE PROCESS IS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER. H1 = VARIANCE OF TIME REQUIRED FOR COMPLETING THE DISCHARGE PROCESS IS SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER. NOW LET US COMPUTE TEST STATISTIC S1 = 35 MINS S2 = 29 MINS N1 = N2 = 25 FTEST = S12 / S22 = 1225 / 841 = 1.456 TO COMPUTE FC , = 0.1, /2 = 0.05 HERE N1 = N2 = 25 , THEREFORE DEGREE OF FREEDOM FOR BOTH GROUPS (DF) = 25 1 = 24 THEREFORE FROM STATISTICAL TABLES, FC WITH 24 DF IN NUMERATOR & 24 DF IN DENOMINATOR & /2= 0.05 IS 1.98 CONCLUSION: SINCE FTEST < FC , DO NOT REJECT HO HENCE VARIANCE OF TIME REQUIRED FOR COMPLETING THE DISCHARGE PROCESS IS NOT SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER.

10 T TEST
YOU HAVE OBTAINED THE NUMBER OF YEARS OF EDUCATION FROM ONE RANDOM SAMPLE OF 38 CARDIOLOGISTS FROM STATE X AND THE NUMBER OF YEARS OF EDUCATION FROM A SECOND RANDOM SAMPLE OF 30 CARDIOLOGISTS FROM STATE Y. THE AVERAGE YEARS OF EDUCATION FOR THE SAMPLE FROM STATE X ARE 15 YEARS WITH A STANDARD DEVIATION OF 2 YEARS. THE AVERAGE YEARS OF EDUCATION FOR THE SAMPLE FROM STATE Y ARE 14 YEARS WITH A STANDARD DEVIATION OF 2.5 YEARS. IS THERE A STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE EDUCATION LEVELS OF CARDIOLOGISTS IN STATE X AND STATE Y? ANSWER. HO: THERE IS NO STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MEAN EDUCATION LEVEL OF CARDIOLOGISTS WORKING IN STATE X AND THE MEAN EDUCATION LEVEL OF CARDIOLOGISTS WORKING IN STATE Y. H1: THERE IS A STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MEAN EDUCATION LEVEL OF CARDIOLOGISTS WORKING IN STATE X AND THE MEAN EDUCATION LEVEL OF CARDIOLOGISTS WORKING IN STATE Y. DEGREES OF FREEDOM (DF) = (N1+N2)-2 DF = 38+30-2=66 =0.5, TC= 1.997 STANDARD ERROR=
