He selected a sample of 100 boxes that had been tampered with and ascertained that for 60 of the boxes, the missing pants, shoes, and so on were attributed to shoplifting. For 30 other boxes employees has stolen goods, and for the remaining 10 boxes he blamed poor inventory control.

In his report to the mall management, can he say that shoplifting is twice as likely to be the cause of the loss as compared with either employee theft or poor inventory control and that the employee theft and poor inventory control are equally likely? Use the .02 level.

65. In a particular market there are three commercial television stations, each with its own evening news program from 6:00 to 6:30 PM. According to a report in this morning's local newspaper, a random sample of 150 viewers last night revealed 53 watched the news on WNAE (channel 5), 64 watched on WRRN (channel 11), and 33 on WSPD (channel 13). At a .05 significance level, is there a difference in the proportion of viewers watching the three channels?

Solution:

We will use ANOVA (Analysis of Variance ) to solve the problem

Null Hypothesis: H0: μ1=μ2=μ3 There is no difference between the means

Alternative Hypothesis: H1: μ1≠μ2≠μ3 There is difference between the means

Mean=μ 10.8 8 8.4

Standard deviation=sj 1.1 1.41 1.67

Sample size=nj= 5 5 5

k=no of samples= 3

Grand mean of all the three samples= 9.07 =(5 * 10.8 + 5 * 8 + 5 * 8.4 ) / (5+5+5)

First estimate of the population variance=Varaince among the sample means

df=k-1= 2 df=degrees of freedom

Varaince among the sample means=Σnj(xsample-xgrand)2/k-1 =

=(5 *( 10.8 - 9.07) ^2 + 5 *( 8 - 9.07) ^2 + 5 *( 8.4 - 9.07) ^2 )/ 2= 11.47

Second estimate of the population variance=Within column variance

df=(Σnj)- k=nT - k= 12 = 5 + 5 + 5 - 3 df=degrees of ...
