11.3: test of independence

Use the following information to answer the next four exercises. You are considering conducting a chi-square test of independence for the data in this table, which displays data about cell phone ownership for freshman and seniors at a high school. Your null hypothesis is that cell phone ownership is independent of class standing.

79 . Compute the expected values for the cells.

Cell = Yes Cell = No
Freshman 100 150
Senior 200 50

80 . Compute ( O E ) 2 z for each cell, where O = observed and E = expected.

81 . What is the chi-square statistic and degrees of freedom for this study?

82 . At the α = 0.5 significance level, what is your decision regarding the null hypothesis?

11.4: test of homogeneity

83 . You conduct a chi-square test of homogeneity for data in a five by two table. What is the degrees of freedom for this test?

11.5: comparison summary of the chi-square tests: goodness-of-fit, independence and homogeneity

84 . A 2013 poll in the State of California surveyed people about taxing sugar-sweetened beverages. The results are presented in the following table, and are classified by ethnic group and response type. Are the poll responses independent of the participants’ ethnic group? Conduct a hypothesis test at the 5% significance level.

Ethnic Group \ Response Type Favor Oppose No Opinion Row Total
White / Non-Hispanic 234 433 43 710
Latino 147 106 19 272
African American 24 41 6 71
Asian American 54 48 16 118
Column Total 459 628 84 1171

85 . In a test of homogeneity, what must be true about the expected value of each cell?

86 . Stated in general terms, what are the null and alternative hypotheses for the chi-square test of independence?

87 . Stated in general terms, what are the null and alternative hypotheses for the chi-square test of homogeneity?

11.6: test of a single variance

88 . A lab test claims to have a variance of no more than five. You believe the variance is greater. What are the null and alternative hypothesis to test this?

Practice test 3 solutions

8.1: confidence interval, single population mean, population standard deviation known, normal

1 . σ n = 4 30 = 0.73

2 . normal

3 . 0.025 or 2.5%; A 95% confidence interval contains 95% of the probability, and excludes five percent, and the five percent excluded is split evenly between the upper and lower tails of the distribution.

4 . z -score = 1.96; E B M =   z α 2 ( σ n ) = ( 1.96 ) ( 0.73 ) =   1.4308

5 . 41 ± 1.43 = (39.57, 42.43); Using the calculator function Zinterval, answer is (40.74, 41.26. Answers differ due to rounding.

6 . The z -value for a 90% confidence interval is 1.645, so EBM = 1.645(0.73) = 1.20085.
The 90% confidence interval is 41 ± 1.20 = (39.80, 42.20).
The calculator function Zinterval answer is (40.78, 41.23). Answers differ due to rounding.

7 . The standard error of measurement is: σ n =   4 50 = 0.57
E B M =   z α 2 ( σ n ) = ( 1.96 ) ( 0.57 ) =   1.12
The 95% confidence interval is 41 ± 1.12 = (39.88, 42.12).
The calculator function Zinterval answer is (40.84, 41.16). Answers differ due to rounding.

Hope this helps. There are three main types of averages. *mean -> average -> (X1+X2+X3+...+Xn) / n *mode -> the element within a set which occurs most. {3,4,5,8,12,3,4,3,3,56} mode = 3 *median -  {3,3,4,5,8,12,56} median = 5 OR {3,4,5,8,12,56} median = 6.5

statistics :- can be defined as the branches of mathematics that deals with the summarizing, analysing,organization and interpretation of data.

well said
Venkat
can we find Z value on calculator with out using Z table
Maham Reply
no
Pitior
why
Maham
can another way is possible ?
Maham
Well you could make a table. And as the function you use the one used at the z table
Luca
The normal function is only one way, so you can only try using different numbers until you get the probability that you have. So that is easier if you have a table
Luca
me don't know nothing about z table and don't know how to see the z value on table can you tell me please how see the value on table
Maham
The z table is the table of the standard normal distribution
Luca
You can look it up on internet, its easier than writing down the normal distribution function (with an integral) and doing a table in the calculator
Luca
OK thanks luca
Maham
yes use pnorm in r
Venkat
pnorm(2.3,mean=0,sd=1)

what is statistics
Bhavani Reply
statistics is the beach of mathematics which deals with collection ,organisation, presentation, analysis and interpretation of numerical data
Saeed
oh but interpretation of data, like what and how? 🤔
Bhavani
interpretation: Think in a way that you have given a company year turnover and you have a record of 100years and data set is like (Year,Turnover). Now with that data you can interpret many thing how was the company growth, when were the losses and other things
Akash
interpretation: it is a process in which we make a decision about a population on the basis of sample data . example: if we want to interpret the average income of employees for upcoming year so we have to interpret the income of employees on the basis of previous year's income of those employees
Saeed
thank you saeed, Akash. I understood.
Bhavani
how to remember all this formulas easy ly

explain statistics whether it is a science or arts or both
ratnapriya Reply
I would say art is a creation. A chef is an artist. They create new dishes just like the painters. I believe one who creates something new, is an artist. So, Statistics is also an art, if you know it, you can create some new formula, theory, law, etcetera. It is also Science. So yes, it is both.
Rohan
how do you use the normal distribution table when testing the hypothesis
Davia
I am sorry Davia, I cannot help you with that.
Rohan
percentages of all the possible outcomes are measured. This is so simple and bases on the questionnaire or interview schedule. It's just measuring the probability chances of high %age of the either part of the hypothesis ... dependent ..independent. data is classified on the basis of respondents

surpose a data set of 2,3,5,6,1,4 are given find median
lucy Reply
fastest finger please
lucy
Mean (average) 4... Median (middle term) 3.5.. Mode (frequency) every element in a set has 1 frequrncy
Akash
i arrange the data set in ascending order. that is, 1,2,3,4,5,6. then find the data set that falls in the middle. in this case, 3 & 4 fall in the middle. you then sum and obtain the average. that is, (3+4)/2=3.5. therefore, 3.5 is the median.
Gbenga
both of you are correct.

what if it is a group data
Oloyede
mean/ medium/ mode
Michelle
n\2 and n+1\2
asad
what is mean
Samson
mean /median and mode are measurements of central tendency
BinahMalka
sum of values divided by the number of values is called mean..
ibrar
yes
ibrar
mean is the arrange medium is all an average but allows for extremes. mode is simply subtracting the large number from the smallest in a data set or ( list of numbers given).
