Statistical aptitude scores are known to be normally distributed, with mean = 50. A researcher has designed a new program intended to improve studentsââ?¬â?¢ statistical aptitude, and has enrolled a sample of 30 students in it. The researcher then collects studentsââ?¬â?¢ statistical aptitude scores at the end of the p

Can anyone give me 2 or more examples of a comparison between the old times and the present day? For example: Why do people care about their weight in the present day than in the olden days? Can you formulate a hypothesis similar to this statement that can be tested, and how would it be tested?
Researchers routinely choose a-level of 0.05 for testing their hypotheses. What are some experiments for which you might want a lower a-level (e.g. 0.01)? What are some situations in which you might accept a higher level (e.g. 0.1)? Why? Suppose you hear an "old-timer" say, "Why, in my day, kids were much more respectful and

COMPLETE PROBLEM 1: It is pretty common across most schools to find the grades at the MBA level divided between A's and B's. As such, you expect the mean GPA to be around 3.50. Using the sample of 200 MBA students, conduct a one-sample hypothesis test to determine if the mean graduate GPA is different from 3.50. Use a .05 signif

At a college, two professors, Saber and Tooth, are each teaching large sections of introductory statistics with 500 students in each section. They decide to compare the results from their first exam. It would be too cumbersome to compare all 1000 students, so the decide to select a random sample of 50 students from each section.
1. Sandy's Pizza has generally assumed that the mean age of its customers was 30 years of age or younger. A random sample of 50 customers revealed the following: X-bar=30.76 years and s=3.6 years Does the sample data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the mean age of Sandy's customers is greater than 30 years
In hypothesis testing, the null hypothesis is tested and a decision is made as to whether to reject or not reject the null hypothesis. Then the conclusion must be stated in terms of the problem being studied. Determining the null and alternate hypotheses sometimes presents problems for students. This discussion activity will giv
