Please use Excel when necessary:

1) When the p-value is smaller than the significance level:

a) A type 1 error is committed

b) A type 11 error is committed

c) The null hypothesis is rejected

d) The critical value is correct. Problem #

2) The coefficient of correlation between the variables X and Y was computed to be -0.60 this means:

a) As X increases Y decreases

b) X and Y are bot 0

c) As X increases Y increases

d As X decreases Y decreases
