Time: 1 hour
Show all your work and calculations except for the multiple choice and short answering. Partial
credit will be given for work that is partially correct. Points will be deducted for false statements shown
in the solution to a problem, even if the final answer is correct.
Keep 3 decimal place during computation and 2 for the final result. Final results should be circled.
Unless specify, the default significant level (α) is always 0.05.
