1 out of 1 points Using the example in the book on page 379, Figure 6.9, if is 12.8%, everything else being the same, what conclusion can you draw? Answer Selected Answer: 12.8% is so far out. I would reject the null hypothesis. My conclusion would be the assets for banks have changed. Response Feedback: 12.8% is even larger than the example in the book (8.1%). So definitely reject null hypothesis.

Question 4
1 out of 1 points People like to do everything online these days, including taking classes. Does the number of schools in the US that offer online classes increased this year, comparing to last year? You have

selected 200 colleges/universities all over the US and collected their online class enrollment data. What would your null hypothesis be? Answer Selected Answer: The number of schools that offer online classes has not changed since last year.

Question 5

Assuming on average, 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. It is very close to the ATM example in the book on page 337.

Question 5
1 out of 1 points With interest rates being at its record low, does home sale increase this year? At the same time, unemployment rate is high as well, which makes you think people would be hesitant of buying new homes. You have been asked to conduct a study to find out the answer. You have gathered home sales data from 150 sub divisions all over the US. What would your null hypothesis be? Answer Selected Answer: Home sale has not changed.

Question 6
1 out of 1 points Continue with Question 5: What would a two-sided alternative hypothesis be? Answer

Selected Answer: Home sale has changed this year. 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, whether positive or negative. By contrast, a one-sided hypothesis would be home sale has increased, or home sale has decreased.

Question 7
1 out of 1 points Continue with question 5 If in your sample, you saw an average of 30% sale drop with only 3% standard deviation, what would you do? Answer Selected Answer:

Since the average in my sample is a 30% sale drop, which is very high and the standard deviation is very low, only at 3%, that's strong enough evidence to reject the null hypothesis. In this example, the null hypothesis would say the average change should be 0%, indicating no change at all. Since the standard deviation is 3%, a 30% change would be so far out on the normal distribution curve that it would rarely occur by chance. Therefore, we reject the null hypothesis.

Response Feedback:

Question 8
1 out of 1 points When we are trying to estimate the mean of a population, but the population standard deviation is not known, what can we do? Answer

Selected Answer:

We can use the sample standard deviation to estimate the population standard deviation.

Question 3
1 out of 1 points In the case study on page 512-513, what are the two sample proportions?

Answer Selected Answer: The sample proportions here are: 1. In the man sample, the proportion of men who are "label users". 2. In the woman sample, the proportion of women who are "label users". Response Feedback: In this case study, we are interested in comparing whether women pay more attention to labels than men. So we are comparing the response from two groups, man group and woman group to see whether there are any differences.

Question 4
1 out of 1 points On page 434-435, Example7.7, what does u=0 mean? Answer Selected Answer: It means the difference between the tests are 0. Hence, there is no improvements after receiving the instructions.

Question 5
1 out of 1 points The same case study on page 517, what if the calculated Z value turned out to be 0.4? Answer

Selected Answer: In this case, z is 0.4, which is a relatively small value (p is about .68). So there is no strong evidence to support that women are more "label users" than men.

Question 6
1 out of 1 points The t procedures are robust even if the sample contains a lot of outliers, as long as the calculations are performed accurately. Answer Selected Answer: False Response Feedback: With lots of outliers, the populations follow normal distribution cannot be fulfilled. So the t procedures are not robust against outliers. See page 437.

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. Response Feedback: See Page 515.
