Student's t-Test

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

T Test - investigate the claim and assume that the population is normally distributed

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.

Construct a hypothesis test for the population mean using a t-test for a coin operated drink machine.

A coin-operated drink machine was designed to discharge a mean of 8 ounces of coffee per cup. In a test of the machine, the discharge amounts in 20 randomly chosen cups of coffee from the machine were recorded. The sample mean and sample standard deviation were 8.08 ounces and .13 ounces, respectively. If we assume that the dis

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

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
