2. Table below shows the actual daily occurrence of sunshine in Atlanta during November 1974, as a percentage of the possible time the sun could have shone if it had not been for cloudy skies. Dichotomize the observation according to whether the amount of sunshine was more than 50% of possible or 50% less, and test the null hypotheses that the pattern of occurrences of the two types of day is random.

4. Columns 1 and 2 of table below show, for 15 normal fetuses, the gestational age and mean QA0 (a measurement of the cardiac cycle) values, as reported by Murata and Martin (E29). If we perform a regression analysis on the data using gestational age as the residuals by subtracting X and mean Q A0 as the dependent variable Y, we obtain the residuals by subtracting the fitted from the observed value Y (shown in column 3). Dichotomize the residuals according to whether they are negative or positive, and test the claim that their pattern of occurrences is random.

Answer
EXERCISES GROUP 8 1. A supervisor records the number of employees absent over a 30- day period. Test the claim that the number of employees absent occur at random, at = 0.05. 27 6 19 24 18 12 15 17 18 20 0 9 4 12 3 2 7 7 0 5 32 16 38 31 27 15 5 9 4 10

Solution. Hypotheses: H0 : The pattern of occurrences of number of employees absent occur at random.(claim) H1: The pattern of occurrences of number of employees absent is not random. Test statistics:

Median = 15 Run, r = 6 , n1=14, n2 = 14

Critical value: Lower critical value = 9 Upper critical value = 21

Decision: Since Conclusion: Enough evidence to reject the claim that the pattern of occurrences of number of employee absent occur at random. , we reject H0
