Hypothesis Testing

T stats

The American Medical Association conducts surveys of its members each year. A sample of physicians is selected and asked to report the amount of time each devotes to patient care each week. The results for the survey are stored in the excel file. Can we infer that the mean amount of time devoted to patient care per week by all p

restaurant site is acceptable based on pedestrian traffic.

A fast food franchiser is considering building a restaurant at a certain location. Based on financial analyses, a site is acceptable only if the number of pedestrian passing the location averages more than 100 per hour. The number of pedestrians observed for each of 40 hours was recorded and stored in the attached excel file .


In an attempt to reduce the number of person-hours lost as a result of industrial accidents, a large production plant installed new safety equipment. In a test of the effectiveness of the equipment, a random sample of 50 departments was chosen. The number of person-hours lost in the month prior to and the month after the install

Expectation and Hypothesis Testing

4. An experiment is set to test the hypothesis that a given coin is unbiased. The decision rule is the following: Accept the hypothesis if the number of heads in a sample of 200 tosses is between 90 and 110 inclusive, otherwise reject the hypothesis. a) Find the probability of accepting the hypothesis when it is correct.

Statistics problems

Please explain fully, using Excel when necesary. These questions were addressed once already, but they were not explained in a way in which they could be fully understood. Please detail each step. Thanks! 1)A publisher is considering three different covers for a new magazine. A random sample of 90 people are asked to pick the

Statistics problems

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 -0.6

That there are no differences between the two groups of subjects

A) Analyse the data below to test the hypotheses that there are no differences between the two groups of subjects in terms of their walking time to exhaustion (in seconds) and ratings of perceived exertion (RPE) after 8 minutes of walking.

Sample proportion hypotheses test

Ho: P<= .7 Ha: P > .7 Sample Data Set: 300 Sample Proportion of .853 What is the standard error of the proportion? What is the z-test? How do you compute the p value? What do you do with the Ho?

Biopstatistics Problem

I hope you can help me with this problem. I have 2 questions regarding this study. 1) I have heard from my teacher that there is a 7th null hypothesis hidden in the text for this study. The first 6 are presented in the tables. WHAT IS THE 7TH NULL HYPOTHESIS??? They are: Ho1: Cr 3+and As3+ has no effect on glucose to

Using Spearman's - Is my data statistically significant?

Hi there, I used excel to analyze my data with spearmans rank order co efficient test and came up with the attached table. I have a query about finding out whether my correlation coefficient - 0.420- is statistically significant. This is what i understand (not much!) - take the t value and compare it to the critical val

Statistics Problem

Can you tell me how you would do the attached problem? My idea is to take the difference of Day 0 and Day 365 (using the absolute value of it) then use ANOVA. Does that make sense?

What you need to know about null hypothesis?

Here is the scenario: Suppose we hypothesize that there is a negative (inverse) relationship between treatment and depression. We'd like to test this hypothesis, so we obtain two samples. Sample 1 is drawn from a population of depressed persons who have not received any type of treatment. Sample 2 is drawn from a population o

Statistics question

A researcher hypothesizes that the lowering in cholesterol associated with weight loss is really due to exercise. To test this, the researcher carefully controls for exercise while comparing the cholesterol levels of a group of subjects who lose weight dieting with a control group that does not diet. The difference in mean chole

Hypothesis Testing: Average Speed

Question: Suppose a candidate running for sheriff claims that she will reduce the average speed of emergency response to less than 30 minutes. (30 minutes is thought to be the average response time with the current sheriff.) There are no past records, so the actual standard deviation of such response times cannot be determined.

Correlation coefficient

Hypothesis Testing for Samples

You are the manager of a factory that produces Mini-Oats Cereal. The factory has an automated packaging machine that can be set at any targeted fill level between 12 and 32 ounces. Every box of cereal is not expected to contain exactly the targeted weight, but the average of all boxes filled should. At the end of every shift (8
