Response Feedback: 12. including taking classes.8%. I would reject the null hypothesis.8% is even larger than the example in the book (8. Question 4 1 out of 1 points People like to do everything online these days. My conclusion would be the assets for banks have changed. if is 12. So definitely reject null hypothesis.68%? Answer Selected Answer: 30 **ANSWER IS NOT 32 EITHER**** Question 3 1 out of 1 points Using the example in the book on page 379.1%). Does the number of schools in the US that offer online classes increased this year.9. what conclusion can you draw? Answer Selected Answer: 12. everything else being the same.

Question 5 1 out of 1 points Continue with Question 4: What would a one sided alternative hypothesis be? Answer Selected Answer: Either A or B. Response Feedback: A one-sided hypothesis can go in either direction.selected 200 colleges/universities all over the US and collected their online class enrollment data. Question 6 1 out of 1 points Continue with Question 4: If your study shows a 3% increase in the number of schools offering online classes. along with a 30% standard deviation in your sample. So either A or B is correct. what conclusion can you draw? . What would your null hypothesis be? Answer Selected Answer: The number of schools that offer online classes has not changed since last year.

So the increase of 3% could easily happen by chance. Therefore. but the standard deviation is large at 30%. Example 7.3. as the alternative hypothesis . Answer Selected Answer: True Response This is one sided. this is a two sided alternative because we have both the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis.Answer Selected Answer: The increase is small. Answer Selected Answer: True Response Feedback: Page 433. Question 8 1 out of 1 points On page 430. As k increases. the t(k) density curve approaches normal distribution even closer. at 3%. there is no strong evidence to reject the null hypothesis. Question 7 1 out of 1 points We use t(k) to stand for the t distribution with k degrees of freedom.

3. Therefore. Answer Selected Answer: True Response Feedback: The samples are from two different populations.Feedback: states u< 40. the alternative hypothesis would have been Question 9 1 out of 1 points On page 430. Question 10 1 out of 1 points In a two-sample problem. about 0.0001. Example 7. the samples that are selected are two different samples from the same population. we reject the null hypothesis. Saturday. the example stated P= 0. April 27. If it were two sided. What can we say about this value? Answer Selected Answer: It shows that the probability of u<40 happens by chance is extremely low. . 2013 12:50:03 PM EDT ").01%.

As you know. So that would be 5 out of 6.Module 4 – Quiz 2 Question 1 1 out of 1 points Probability for sample space is always 1. Question 2 1 out of 1 points When rolling a die. there is an overlapping in the two events. Hence. Are these two events independent? Answer Selected Answer: False Response Feedback: No. Answer Selected Answer: True Response Feedback: See Page 312. NOT getting a 2 is the same as getting 1. Question 3 1 out of 1 points MA 2025 has 20 students. Select a student randomly and this student is senior. 5. there are 2 students who are female and senior. MA 2025 also has 5 graduating seniors and 2 are female. 12 are female. what's the probability of NOT getting a 2? Answer Selected Answer: 5/6 Response Feedback: See Page 312. 2. the probability is 5/6. 3. Consider the following two events: 1. 6. 4. Select a student randomly and this student is female. .

which makes you think people would be hesitant of buying new homes. Question 5 1 out of 1 points With interest rates being at its record low. What would your null hypothesis be? Answer Selected Answer: Home sale has not changed. Assuming on average. You have been asked to conduct a study to find out the answer. Question 6 1 out of 1 points Continue with Question 5: What would a two-sided alternative hypothesis be? Answer . unemployment rate is high as well. It is very close to the ATM example in the book on page 337. there are 100 students using the library for any given hour. What type of probability distribution can be best used to model this problem? Answer Selected Answer: Poisson Distribution Response Feedback: This problem follows Poisson distribution. does home sale increase this year? At the same time. You have gathered home sales data from 150 sub divisions all over the US.Question 4 1 out of 1 points Indiana Tech wants to find out what's the probability of less than 30 students will be in the library between 8pm 9:00pm to see whether it needs to extend library hours.

but the population standard deviation is not known. what would you do? Answer Selected Answer: Since the average in my sample is a 30% sale drop. In this example. whether positive or negative. you saw an average of 30% sale drop with only 3% standard deviation. By contrast. that's strong enough evidence to reject the null hypothesis. Therefore. Response Feedback: A two sided alternative hypothesis will state that there has been a change. but won't be specific on what the change might be. indicating no change at all. a 30% change would be so far out on the normal distribution curve that it would rarely occur by chance. what can we do? Answer . or home sale has decreased. a one-sided hypothesis would be home sale has increased. the null hypothesis would say the average change should be 0%.Selected Answer: Home sale has changed this year. Response Feedback: Question 8 1 out of 1 points When we are trying to estimate the mean of a population. Question 7 1 out of 1 points Continue with question 5 If in your sample. which is very high and the standard deviation is very low. we reject the null hypothesis. only at 3%. Since the standard deviation is 3%.

which is less than 11%. Response Feedback: Check page 424. Question 9 1 out of 1 points Population proportions concern data of quantitative variables. Answer Selected Answer: False Response Feedback: It should be categorical variables. why does the author concluded the chain restaurant data are compatible with the survey results? Answer Selected Answer: The P value 0.2 on page 499-500.1052.Selected Answer: We can use the sample standard deviation to estimate the population standard deviation. That's a relative low percentage in order to reject the null hypothesis Minimize Close   0 . Question 10 1 out of 1 points Read example 8.

what are the two sample proportions? . what can you do to help the sampling distribution becomes approximately normal? Answer Selected Answer: Increase the sample size. Response Feedback: See page 495. Question 3 1 out of 1 points In the case study on page 512-513. Response Feedback: See page 424.HMWK Module 4 Question 1 incre 1 out of 1 points What is standard error of a statistic?

4? Answer .7. In the man sample. In the woman sample. there is no improvements after receiving the instructions. 2. what if the calculated Z value turned out to be 0. So we are comparing the response from two groups. man group and woman group to see whether there are any differences. Question 5 1 out of 1 points The same case study on page 517. the proportion of men who are "label users". Hence. Response Feedback: In this case study. Question 4 1 out of 1 points On page 434-435.Answer Selected Answer: The sample proportions here are: 1. Example7. what does u=0 mean? Answer Selected Answer: It means the difference between the tests are 0. we are interested in comparing whether women pay more attention to labels than men. the proportion of women who are "label users".

Selected Answer: In this case. as long as the calculations are performed accurately. Answer Selected Answer: False Response Feedback: With lots of outliers.4. So the t procedures are not robust against outliers. Question 7 1 out of 1 points Why do we have to add 1 success and 1 failure to each sample in Wilson estimate? Answer Selected Answer: Small modification of the sample proportions greatly improves the accuracy of confidence interval. the populations follow normal distribution cannot be fulfilled. So there is no strong evidence to support that women are more "label users" than men. Response Feedback: See Page 515. Question 6 1 out of 1 points The t procedures are robust even if the sample contains a lot of outliers. which is a relatively small value (p is about . z is 0. . See page 437.68).
