Use the following to answer questions 1-6.: A national manufacturer of ball bearings is experimenting with two different processes for producing precision ball bearings. It is important that the diameters be as close as possible to an industry standard. The output from each process is sampled and the average error from the
Please conduct a hypothesis test for a single population mean of a quantitative variable equal to a given number. For example, test the hypothesis that the population mean of the intrinsic is equal to 5 or not. Use all 25 data rows. Since n<30, use a t statistic. For this and any hypothesis test, number the five steps
1) What are the five steps involved in classic hypothesis testing? 2) In general, what is a "Critical Value" or "Cut-Off Score" of a test statistic? What are the critical values of z for a two-tailed test (.05)? What are the critical values of z for a one-tailed test (.05)? What are the critical values of z for a two-

Could you please send me an example of a real-world situation or problem addressing the independent and dependent variables study; that includes a research question; the statistical null and alternative hypotheses; an explanation of why this test is appropriate and why a parametric procedure, such as correlation or APA format.
Some defendants in criminal proceedings plead guilty and are sentenced without a trial, whereas others who plead innocent are subsequently found guilty and then are sentenced. In recent years, legal scholars have speculated as to whether sentences of those who plead guilty differ in severity from sentences for those who plead i
Indoor natatoriums or swimming pools are noted for their pool acoustical properties. The goal is to design a pool in such a way that the average time that it takes a low-frequency sound to die is at most 1.3 seconds with a standard deviation of at most .6 seconds. Computer simulations of a preliminary design are conducted to see
The problem: In Meijer supermarket, the customer's waiting time to check out is approximately normally distributed with a standard deviation of 2.5 minutes. A sample of 25 customer waiting times produced a mean of 8.2 minutes. Is this evidence sufficient to reject the supermarket's claim that its customer checkout time averag
The question is what is the Bonferroni correction? When is it used? What is the principle of the Bonferroni correction? What are planned comparisons? Why do researchers making planned comparisons need to make the Bonferroni correction? If a researcher is making four planned comparisons using the .05 significance level, wh
Develop two different Research Question and Two or different Statement of Hypothesis - verbal for the data set provided Research Question It should be one sentence, testable, and traditionally written with the dependent variable followed with the independent variable (if applicable.) Length: One sentence. Statement of Hy
What hypothesis testing procedure would you use in the following situations? Explain your reasons, including assumptions and limitations for selecting the procedure. A test classifies applicants as accepted or rejected. Based on 200 applicants, test the hypothesis that ad placement success is not related to gender. A comp
Discuss the process of the hypothesis testing and the outcome. Give feedback and highlight two areas of significance. Give pros and cons of the hypothesis and the outcome.
Problem 1 Mutual funds have become an increasing popular investment alternative for smaller investors. To help investors decide on the particular fund to invest in, various publications regularly report the average annual rate of return achieved by each of more than 100 mutual funds over a 10 year period. Some publications also
A typical college student spends an average of 2.55 hours a day using a computer. A sample of 13 students at The University if Findlay revealed the following number of hours per day using the computer: 3.15 3.25 2.00 2.50 2.65 2.75 2.35 2.85 2.95 2.45 1.95 2.35 3.75 Can we conclude that the mean nunmber of hou
The mean cleanup and redecorating time for a one-bedroom student apartment at campus Housing is 16 hours. The time for the cleanup and redecorating process follows the normal distribution. The campus Housing administration instituted a "fee and fine system" that encourages students to clean their apartments when they vacate them
A personnel psychologist studying adjustment to the job of new employees found that employees' amount of education (in number of years) predicts ratings by job supervisors two months later. The regression constant in the linear prediction rule for predicting job ratings from education is 0.5 and the regression coefficient is
A person scores 81 on a test of verbal ability and 6.4 on a test of quantitative ability. For the verbal ability test, the mean for people in general is 50 and the standard deviation is 20. For the quantitative ability test, the mean for people in general is 0 and the standard deviation is 5. Which is this person's stronger abil
A coin-operated drink machine was designed to discharge a mean of 6 ounces of coffee per cup. In a test of the machine, the discharge amounts in 14 randomly chosen cups of coffee from the machine were recorded. The sample mean and sample standard deviation were 6.11ounces and .16ounces, respectively. If we assume that the discha
Given the following hypothesis: Ho: M = 400 H alternative: M not equal to 400 For a random sample of 12 observations, the sample mean was 407 and the sample standard deviation 6. Using the .01 significance level: a. State the decision rule. b. Compute the value of the test statistic. c. What is your decision reg
For this exercise answer the questions: A. is this a one-or two- tailed test? B. what is the decision rule? C. what is the value of the test statistic? D. what is your decision regarding H¥ï? E. what is the type p - value? Interpret it. The following information is available. HÂ 10 HÌ > 10 The sample mean is 12
Individual scores of a placement examination are normally distributed with a mean of 84.2 and a standard deviation of 12.8. If the score of an individual is randomly selected, find the probability that the score will be less than 90.0. If a random sample of size n = 20 is selected, find the probability that the sample mean
Part A: There is an advantage in stating the hypothesis both in the null and in the alternative; it adds clarity to our thinking of what we are testing. Explain. Part B: It is advantageous to develop a directional hypothesis whenever we are sure of the predicated direction. How would you justify this statement? Explain.
IDENTIFYING LEVEL OF MEASUREMENT There are four levels of measurement, two are numeric and two are attribute data. This first time around, try to identify if a question produces a number or a text number. This not always an easy as you will see. This will be needed later when choosing a hypothesis test. Please attached, I at
Hypothesis test for the difference of population proportions For several decades, it was a common practice in Southern California for houses to be built with pools in the backyard (as any airplane flight which ends at a Southern California airport will reveal). Now, however, that practice may be changing, possibly because of t
I need help with proving that a population mean is not 150. Use an alpha of 5% and set up the full, detailed, five step hypothesis test. Assume when the sample 200 is taken the sample standard deviation is 10 and the sample mean is 151.77. What is the p value? Describe the steps in formal hypothesis testing. Make at least
A field researcher is gathering data on the trunk diameters of mature pine and spruce trees in a certain area. The following are the results of his random sampling. Can he conclude, at the .10 level of significance, that the average trunk diameter of a pine tree is greater than the average diameter of a spruce tree?
To test the hypothesis that students who finish an exam first get better grades, Professor Hardtack kept track of the order in which papers were handed in. + The first 25 papers showed a mean score of 77.1 with a standard deviation of 19.6 + The last 24 papers showed a mean score of 69.3 with a standard deviation of 24.9.
