Question
1
[8
marks]

Researchers
who
were
interested
in
current
flow
in
the
brain
prepared
sections
from
the

brains
of
adult
guinea
pigs.
Spontaneous
currents
that
flowed
into
individual
brain
cells

were
then
recorded
and
the
peak
amplitude
of
each
current
measured.
A
sample
of
16

observations
of
peak
current
(pico-amperes)
are
given
below:

4.5 4.7 5.6 5.9 6.1 6.4 6.6 7.0 7.2 7.5 7.7 8.8 8.8 10.1 10.3 15.3

b) Draw a box plot for this data, flagging any unusual values. [4 marks]

[4
marks]

b) Suppose
the
weights
of
lemons
in
a
large

grams.
Consider
the

Question
3
[8
marks]

Suppose
a
couple
decide
to
have
children
until
they
either
have
a
child
of
each
sex
or

they
have
three
children.

a) Using
G
for
girl
and
B
for
boy,
write
down
the
sample
space
of
possible
outcomes

that
can
arise
from
this
process.
For
example,
GGB
could
be
the
outcome
where
the

couple
has
two
girls
and
then
a
boy.
[2
marks]

b) Define
a
probability
function
for
this
process.
[2
marks]

c) Now
let
the
random
variable
X
be
the
number
of
girls
resulting
from
this
approach

to
having
children.
Write
down
the
sample
space
for
X
and
give
the
probability

function
for
X
based
on
your
answer
to
(b).
[2
marks]

d) What
is
the
expected
number
of
girls,
E(X)?
[1
mark]

e) What
is
the
standard
deviation
of
the
number

mark]

Question
4
[8
marks]

It
is
estimated
that
85%
of
the
fish
in
a
remote
lake
are
carrying
a
certain
bacteria.
Upon

testing
of
a
fish
for
the
bacteria
there
is
a
90%
chance
of
detecting
that
the
fish
is

carrying
the
bacteria
in
case
it
does.
Further
there
is
a
70%
chance
of
concluding
that
a

fish
is
not
carrying
the
bacteria
in
case
it
does
not.

Suppose
a
fish
is
pulled
out
of
the
lake
and
the
diagnostic
procedure
indicates
that
it
is

carrying
the
bacteria.
What
is
the
probability
that
it
actually
is
carrying
the
bacteria?

Question
5
[8
marks]

Many
patients
with
Huntingtons
disease
exhibit
disturbances
in
their
daily
cycle
of
sleep

and
wake
as
part
of
their
symptoms.
Researchers
studied
these
effects
by
comparing

wild-type
mice
to
mice
with
a
genetic
mutation
similar
to
humans
with
Huntingtons

disease.
Using
radio-telemetry
they
monitored
heart
rate
and
body
temperature
in
the

mice
over
24
hours.
The
table
below
gives
the
average
body
temperature
recorded
for

14
mutant
mice
and
16
wild-type
mice.

Mutant

mice

36.54 36.34 36.50 36.67 36.33 36.60

Wild-type

mice

36.16 36.60 36.24 36.32 36.25 36.08 36.15 36.05

The mean of the average body temperatures for the 14 mutant mice is 36.515C with

standard deviation 0.2636C whereas the mean of the average body temperatures for

the 16 wild-type mice is 36.271C with standard deviation 0.1369C.

between the means. If the null hypothesis is true then the allocation of the 30 mean

body temperatures to the two groups would be just due to chance. How many

possible ways could the 30 values be allocated to the two groups? [2 marks]

b) Since
the
number
of
possible
allocations
to
two
groups
is
quite
large,
the

researchers
realised
that
it
would
not
be
practical
to
calculate
the
exact

randomization
P-value.
Instead
they
used
simulation
to
randomly
split
the
30
values

into
groups
of
size
14
and
16,
recording
the
resulting
difference
between
the
means

each
time.
Repeating
this
100
times
gave
the
following
differences
between
the

means:

0.118
-0.221
-0.001
0.060
0.058
-0.012
0.019
0.257

0.027 0.106 -0.021 -0.059 0.196 0.024 -0.038 -0.039 0.104 0.027

-0.108 -0.058 -0.110 -0.003 0.060 0.046 0.027 -0.044 0.058 0.129

-0.046 -0.021 0.133 -0.095 -0.092 -0.100 0.050 0.000 0.028 0.011

0.111 -0.042 0.032 -0.011 0.106 0.167 0.035 -0.016 -0.076 0.027

-0.040 -0.044 -0.052 -0.051 -0.107 -0.138 0.025 -0.051 -0.127 -0.173

0.076 -0.052 0.141 -0.060 0.078 0.072 0.095 0.170 -0.138 -0.147

-0.028
-0.139
-0.127
0.283
0.100
-0.076
0.110
-0.099
0.025
0.047

Based
on
this
simulation,
what
is
the
estimated
P-value
for
the
test
of
whether

average
body
temperature
tends
to
be
higher
for
the
mutant
mice?
Explain
your

answer
and
give
your
conclusion.
