30 Multiple Choice Problems in Statistics

Problem A The manager of a grocery store claims that the average time that customers spend in checkout lines is 20 minutes or less. A sample of 36 customers is taken. The average time spent on checkout lines for the sample is 24.6 minutes; and the sample standard deviation is 12 minutes. Conduct a hypothesis test (at 0.05 l

1. Last year, according to consumer group, the average passenger vehicle was driven 10.3 thousand miles with a standard deviation of 2 thousand miles before a claim of accident was made. A random sample of 225 passenger cars was collected by the auto insurance company which showed a mean of 10.1 thousand miles driven when a cl

Statistics: Sample size, significance level, test hypothesis, meanm p-value

1. Assume that you plan to use a significance level of ? = .05 to test the claim that p1 =p2. Use the given sample sizes and numbers of successes to find the pooled estimate p. Round to the nearest thousandth n1 = 34 n2 = 414 x1 = 15 x2 =105 2. Assume that you plan to use a significance level of ? = .05 to test the

Validity and reliability measurements in statistics

Validity is more critical to measurement than reliability. A valid measurement is reliable, but a reliable measurement may not be valid. Do you agree with these statements? Explain your answer. Provide examples to support your rationale.
