    1) If the correlation coefficient r is equal to 0.57, find the coefficient of determination.
    a) 0.68
    b) 0.75
    c) 0.45
    d) 0.32

    2) The prediction interval around y' for a specific x is
    a) A confidence interval for the true mean value of the y values that correspond to that x
    b) The value of y used to calculate the slope of the regression line
    c) The interval of values of x used to predict y'
    d) The difference between the value of y and the value of x

    3) What is the critical t-value for a right-tailed test when a=0.025 and d.f. = 12?
    a) 2.179
    b) 2.831
    c) 2.228
    d) 1.869

    4) A portion of an ANOVA summary table is shown below.
    Source sum of squares degrees of freedom
    Between 22 2
    Within(error) 39 34
    Total 61

    a) dfN = 2, dfD = 34
    b) dfN = 34, dfD = 2
    c) dfN = 22, dfD = 39
    d) dfN = 39, dfD = 22

    5) If r = -0.726 and n = 6, test the significance of the correlation coefficient at a = .05
    a) Reject p=0 because 2.91 > 2.57
    b) Do not reject p=0 because -2.11 < 2.57
    c) Do not reject p=0 because -2.11 < 2.54
    d) Do not reject p=0 because 2.91 < 2.54

    6) Use a P- value to test the claim about the population mean, m # 230; using the given sample statistics. State your decision for alpha = 0.05
    Claim: m # 230; Sample statistics: x (bar) = 216.5, s = 17.3, n = 48

    7) Use a t-test to investigate the claim and assume that the population is normally distributed:
    A large university says the mean number of classroom hours per week for full-time faculty is more than 9. A random sample of the number of classroom hours for full-time faculty for one week is listed. At alpha = 0.05, test the university's claim.
    10.7 9.8 11.6 9.7 7.6 11.3 14.1 8.1 11.5 8.5 6.9
