    Distribution Types, Mean, and Sample Analysis

    1) In what ways is the t distribution similar to the standard normal distribution? In what ways is the t distribution different from the standard normal distribution? How does the formula for the t test differ from the formula for the z test? 2) Choose a variable. Before collecting the data, decide what a likely average migh

    Testing of hypothesis problem: Independent t-test

    A sample of 25 concession stand purchases show a mean purchase of $5.29 with a standard deviation of $3.02. However, a later showing of the same movie, a sample of 25 purchases where the mean was $5.12 with a standard deviation of $2.14. The means appear to be very close, but not the variances. At alpha = .05, is there a dif

    Perform hypothesis testing on one variable's data.

    Testing of hypothesis : t test

    The management of White Industries is considering a new method of assembling its golf cart. The present method requires 42.3 minutes, on the average, to assemble a cart. The mean assembly time for a random sample of 24 carts, using the new method, was 40.6 minutes, and the standard deviation of the sample was 2.7 minutes. Using

    Calculating degrees of freedom, t-tests and critical values

    Suppose that a one-tailed t-test is being applied to find out if the population mean is less than $212. The level of significance selected is 0.01 and 26 accounts are sampled. What is the critical value? A machine is set to fill the small size packages of M&M candies with 56 candies per bag. A sample revealed: 3 bags of 5

    T test and confidence interval

    The data that you will be using for this exercise came from a survey of two insurance carriers. The first carrier (C1) was compared against the second competitor (C2). The insurance company management team wants to know how Carrier 1 compared to the second carrier. Data from 159 respondents are included. All of the 5 quest

    Testing for Equality of Means of Two Populations

    You are provided with the male and female unemployment data for the 1960-2005 periods. Using these two samples, determine whether the data support the conclusion that female unemployment rate is higher than the male unemployment rate. Use 0.01 level of significance. INSTRUCTIONS 1. Go to the blackboard, assignment section a

    Significance Level - Baseball

    Refer to the Baseball 2002 data, which reports information on the 30 Major League Baseball teams for the 2002 season. At the .05 significance level, can we conclude that there is a difference in the mean salary of teams in the American League versus teams in the National League?

    T Test, Hypothesis Test or Null Hypothesis

    Twenty students randomly assigned to an experimental group receive an instructional program; 30 in a control group do not. After 6 months, both groups are tested on their knowledge. The experimental group has a mean of 38 on the test (with an estimated population standard deviation of 3); teh control group has a mean of 35 (wi

    Statistics - Business Administration department

    The Business Administration department at a local university delivers some of its courses using online instruction. Of the two statistics courses offered, one is delivered online and the other is delivered on campus. Eighteen pairs of students are selected, who are well matched on a number of years and grades of mathematics cour

    Research and Statistics - T-test

    A hypothesis states a difference exists between two populations. Sometimes this is an obvious conclusion because the means will be very different. For example, if I gave math tests to boys and girls and the boys on average scored 20 points better than the girls, I know that is enough of a difference to conclude with accuracy tha

    Regression

    Which of the following is a test of the statistical significance of a particular regression coefficient? a. t-test b. R2 c. F-test d. Durbin-Watson test

    T-Test

    If a regression coefficient passes the t-test, it means that a. the regression equation is valid. b. the regression coefficient is significantly different from zero. c. the regression coefficient can be used for forecasting. d. the regression coefficient should be included in the regression equation.

    Paired t test in excel

    Please show work in excel for example. The Federal Government recently granted funds for a special program designed to reduce crime in high-crime areas. A study of the results of the program in eight high-crime areas of Miami, Florida, yielded the following results. Number of Crimes by Area A B C D E F G H Before 14

    What is the difference between a z-test and a t-test?

    What is the difference between a z-test and a t-test? When estimating population mean, how would you determine the optimal sample size when the maximum error limit is known; however, population variance is unknown and your initial sample size is less than 30? Provide a numerical example.

    It seems these days that college graduates who are employed full-time work more than 40-hour weeks. Data are available that can help us decide if this is true. A survey was recently sent to a group of adults selected at random. There were 15 respondents who were college graduates employed full-time. The mean number of hours work

    The management of White Industries is considering a new method of assembling its golf cart. The present method requires 42.3 minutes, on the average, to assemble a cart. The mean assembly time for a random sample of 24 carts, using the new method, was 40.6 minutes, and the standard deviation of the sample was 2.7 minutes. Using the .10 level of significance, can we conclude that the assembly time using the new method is faster?
