REVISION QUESTIONS


SEMESTER II




Please note that these questions are revision questions and may not
be in the same style as the examination questions. There is no
guarantee that all parts of the syllabus are covered.


There are 62 questions here. The questions are in a random order. Brief
answers are included at the end. These are not guaranteed to be correct. If you
disagree with any answer, please check with Mr. Goodhew (Room 479) but
please bring your working to the question.

Please only consult us at our consulting times unless you have made prior
arrangements with one of us.

These questions are based upon a compilation of questions and answers made
by Diane Dancer

Q1. In a random sample of 500 voters in NSW, 235 thought that the prime minister was doing a good
job. In a random sample of 800 voters in Victoria, 479 thought the same. Do these data suggest
that the proportion of all voters favouring the prime minister is different in the two states? Use a
significance level of 0.01.

Q2. In a large city, 22% of the households had the afternoon paper delivered to their doors. After the
newspaper conducted an aggressive marketing campaign to increase that figure, a random sample
of 200 households was taken. Of the sample group, 61 households now have the paper delivered.
Can we conclude at the 5% significance level that the campaign was a success? Find the p-value of
the test.

Q43. The Christmas break (December 20 - January 15) is a critical period for the tourist industry in
Tasmania. If a relatively small number of people visit the island in this time, the hotels, restaurants
and other tourist attractions will suffer financial losses. A marketing analyst hired by the Chamber
of Commerce in Hobart to promote more tourism wants to analyse the factors that influence people
to come to Tasmania during the Christmas break. She believes that the crucial factors affecting
hotel vacancy rates are tied to weather conditions in the previous year i.e. the mean daily high
temperature (in degrees Celsius) and the number of rainy days during the Christmas break

Q56. Quarterly sales data for Johnson and Johnson was used to produce the following equations using (i)
a time trend model, (ii) and (iii) 2 different variations of seasonal dummy variables and a time trend
and (iv) an autoregressive model. The first quarter of data was in Quarter 3 in 1986.The equations
are as follows.

Q57. An auctioneer of semi-antique and antique Persian rugs kept records of his weekly auctions in order
to determine the relationships among price, age of carpet, number of people attending the
auction and number of times the winning bidder had previously attended his auctions. He felt
that, with this information, he could plan his auctions better, serve his customers better and make a
higher profit for himself.

(b) Interpret the value of the coefficient for age of the carpets.
(c) Test the hypothesis that the coefficients of the regressors (excluding the constant) are jointly
significant. Use α = 0.05.
(d) It is believed that the slope of the variable, Audience size, is less than 15. Test this hypothesis
at the 5% significance level.
(e) Find the predicted value for the mean price given that the age of the carpet is 80 years, the

Q58. A university mathematics department has put together an exam for students who have had calculus
in high school. Those students who pass the test will be given 3 hours of university credit. For
security purposes, the department wishes to develop and rotate three different versions or forms of
the exam. A prime consideration is to have an equivalent degree of difficulty for all tests. If 120
randomly assigned students now have taken the test versions with the results given here, is it
reasonable (α = .05) to conclude that the objective of equivalent forms has been achieved?

Q60. To predict the asking price of a second hand Holden, data were collected on the car’s age, condition
(rated as poor, average or excellent) and mileage and on whether the seller is an individual or a
dealer. The variables were:

D
3
= 1 if the condition of the car is average and 0 otherwise
D
