Develop one business research question from which you will formulate a research hypothesis that will test 2 or more populations Prepare a paper describing the results of a hypothesis test of two populations or more than two populations Include the following in your paper: A-Formulate both a numerical and verbal hypot

Null Hypothesis - Alternative Hypothesis

Identify the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis from a given claim, and determine how to express both in symbolic form. The formulas and data are attached. What is needed is to do is explain what is going on in the Excel spreadsheet; basically, make a translation of the math into english. --- Null Hypothesis The

Statistical Techniques in Business & Economics

Statistical Techniques in Business & Economics 21. What is sampling error? Could the value of the sampling error be zero? If it were zero, what would this mean? 22. List the reasons for sampling. Give an example of each reason for sampling. 34. Information from the American Institute of Insurance indicates the mean amou

The solution to Hypothesis Testing: Intrinsic & Extrinsic Job satisfaction

Please us the data set and key provided in attached file. Using AIU's survey responses from the AIU data set, complete the following requirements in the form of a report: Perform a two-tailed hypothesis test on the intrinsic variable AND a two-tailed hypothesis test on the extrinsic variable's data using a .05 significanc

A current topic or issue: How can statistics enrich and represent the results

Bring to mind a research question that interests you, or a current event that utilizes statistics to present results, that you can use as an example for this discussion. State the research question or the current event and results. Based on what you have learned, and using your example, how do you believe statistics can enric

Statistics Hypothesis: Dissolved Oxygen Concentration

Please show all the step as required. Note: For hypothesis testing, the following procedure is recommended: - Step 1: State H0 an H1, Choose - Step 2: Determine Population Parameters [if possible] and Sample Statistics - Step 3: Determine Statistical Technique for Use - Step 4: Determine Rejection Region Based on Cr

Hypothesis testing

True or False: Your population mean used to be 6.0. The population standard deviation is 9. The sample size is 9. The sample mean is 7.0. .05 is your level of significance. The null hypothesis is that the population mean is less than or equal to 6.0, use your sample data to test this claim. If you use this information, you will

Research and Evaluation: Hypothesis Testing

A. What value is business research and hypothesis testing to a company? How long should it take a company to complete a scientific research study? b. How is hypothesis testing used in politics? Explain your response. When and how would you use hypothesis testing at your place of employment?

Conducting a Discriminant Analysis

Conduct a Discriminant Analysis on the GRADUATE.sav file. Use PHD as the dependent variable and create a discriminant function to predict whether the person will finish his or her PhD. Discuss all output.

Critical value and hypothesis testing

(a) What is the critical value and how is the critical value used in hypothesis testing? (b) Look at the example in the attachment about the new drug, Releeva. In the Releeva example, the sample size is sufficiently large (100 patients), thus we can assume normality and use a Z statistic for the hypothesis testing procedur

Important information about Hypothesis Testing of Mean & Population proportion

See attached files. 1. You are the manager of a restaurant that delivers pizza to college dormitory rooms. You have just changed your delivery process in an effort to reduce the mean time between the order and completion of delivery from the current 25 minutes. From past experience, you can assume that the population st

Independence Assumptions & Proportion vs. Percentage vs. Ratio

1. When a researcher has two samples with two means, one of the assumptions for two samples is independence of between the two samples. What does this mean? What happens if the independence assumption is violated? 2. What are the differences among a proportion, a percentage, and a ratio? When would a researcher use a hypothe

Testing the Null Hypothesis: Private vs State School Example

Suppose you want to study the population of full-time college students in State X. In this state, there are 200,000 full-time college students. Out of these students,50,000 students study at private schools, and the other 150,000 students study at state schools. You have drawn a stratified sample using private school students an

Test For Two Independent Samples: Delicious and fattening, Humor and memory

1. Describe what is measured by the estimated standard error in the bottom of the independent-measures t statistics. 2. Do you view a chocolate bar as delicious or as fattening? Your attitude may depend on your gender. In a study of American college students, Rozin, Bauer, and Catanese (2003) examined the importance of food a

New York study for average number of beds sampled

Question 1 The New York study indicated that the average number of beds in the sampled data was 215. It is known that the average number of beds in the population of interest is 136. Test using a two tailed hypothesis. Test the hypothesis that the mean of 215 is statistically equal to 136. That is, any difference

Days to recover from a cold; sound frequencies

A random selection of volunteers at a research institute have been exposed to a typical cold virus. After they started to have cold symptoms, 15 of them were given multivitamin tablets daily which contain 1 gram of vitamin C and various other vitamins and minerals. The remaining 15 volunteers were given tablets only containing 4

Hypothesis Testing of Mean and Population Proportion

1. In Dallas, some fire trucks were painted yellow (instead of red) to heighten their visibility. During a test period, the fleet of red fire trucks made 153,348 runs and had 20 accidents, while the fleet of yellow fire trucks made 135,035 runs and had 4 accidents. At alpha = .01, did the yellow fire trucks have a significantly

An automobile assembly line operation has a scheduled mean completion time of 2.2 minutes. Because of the effect of completion time on both preceding and subsequent assembly operations, it is important to maintain the 2.2 minute mean completion time. A random sample of 45 assemblies resulted in the completion times shown in the
