Hypothesis Testing - Gender and Productivity by Machine Weight

A researcher wants to determine how productive males and females are when working with machines of varying weights. His first hypothesis is that there is no difference between males and females in the number of teddy bears they can produce in a typical 8-hour shift. His second hypothesis is that the weight of machinery used ma

Hypothesis Testing - 1. Three assembly lines are used to produce a certain component for an airliner. To examine the production rate, a random sample of six hourly periods is chosen for each assembly line and the number of components produced during these periods for each line is recorded.

ANOVA - Auditors Judgement

Auditors must make judgments about various aspects of an audit on the basis to their own direct experience, indirect experience, or a combination of the two. In a study, auditors were asked to make judgments about the frequency of errors to be found in an audit. The judgments by the auditors were then compared to the actual re

ANOVA - Effects of Temperature on Yield

To study the effect of temperature on yield in a chemical process, five batches were produced at each of three temperature levels. The results follow. Construct an analysis of variance table. Use a .05 level of significance to test whether the temperature level has effect on the mean yield of the process. See the attachmen

Statistics - ANOVA and Hypothesis Testing

1. In a one-tailed test using the z distribution as the test statistic and the .01 significance level, what is the critical value? As the sample size increases, the t-distribution approaches what value? 2. An ANOVA test was conducted with respect to the population mean. The null hypothesis was rejected. What does this indicate

Analysis of variance and f-values

1. In an analysis of variance, we also get an F value. This value is based on the SSA(SS total), SSE, and SST values. Assume that we have three columns (or treatments), 5 values per column and SS Total = 39,000, SSE = 35,000. Calculate the following: MSE MST For the above problem, what is the value of F? If the calculat
