Two different brands of latex paint are being considered for use. Drying time in hours is
being measured on specimen samples of the use of the two paints. Fifteen specimens for
each were selected and the drying times are given as follows.

QUESTION 3
Past data indicate that the variance of measurements made on sheet metal stampings by
experienced quality inspector is 0.15 square inch. Such measurements made by an
inexperienced inspector could have too large variance perhaps because of inability to read
instruments properly or too small variance perhaps because unusually high or low
measurements are discarded. A new inspector measures a random sample of 80
stampings with a variance of 0.10 square inch.
(a) Test a hypothesis testing at 0.01 level of significance whether the new inspector is
making satisfactory measurements. Assume normality.
(8 Marks)
(b) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the true standard deviation of
measurements made on sheet metal stampings by new inspector.

QUESTION 7
In an experiment, the masses (in grams) of potassium bromide dissolved in 100 grams of
water were recorded at temperature raised from 10°C.
(a) Compute the value of the correlation coefficient for the above data.
(8 Marks)
(b) What can you conclude from the value of the correlation coefficient obtained from
part (a)?
(1 Mark)
(c) Assuming that there is a significant linear relationship between the temperature 100
grams of water and the mass of potassium bromide, find the equation of the
regression line for the data.
(3 Marks)
(d) Estimate the mass of potassium bromide will dissolve in 100 grams of water at
temperature 350C.
