13.3: facts about the F Distribution

40 . Which of the following numbers are possible F Statistics?

  1. 2.47
  2. 5.95
  3. –3.61
  4. 7.28
  5. 0.97

41 . Histograms F 1 and F 2 below display the distribution of cases from samples from two populations, one distributed F 3,15 and one distributed F 5,500 . Which sample came from which population?

This graph shows a histogram for an F distribution. The right-skewed graph peaks around 0.5. There is a gap from 3 to 4.67 and 3 bars, each with height 1, showing outliers from 4.67 to 5.67.
This graph shows a histogram for an F distribution. The right-skewed graph peaks just before 1. The right tail of the graph consists of 3 bars, each with height 1 and with gaps between each bar.

42 . The F Statistic from an experiment with k = 3 and n = 50 is 3.67. At α = 0.05, will you reject the null hypothesis?

43 . The F Statistic from an experiment with k = 4 and n = 100 is 4.72. At α = 0.01, will you reject the null hypothesis?

13.4: test of two variances

44 . What assumptions must be met to perform the F test of two variances?

45 . You believe there is greater variance in grades given by the math department at your university than in the English department. You collect all the grades for undergraduate classes in the two departments for a semester, and compute the variance of each, and conduct an F test of two variances. What are the null and alternative hypotheses for this study?

Practice test 4 solutions

12.1 linear equations

1 . e. A, B, and C.
All three are linear equations of the form y = mx + b .

2 . Let y = the total number of hours required, and x the square footage, measured in units of 1,000. The equation is: y = x + 4

3 . Let y = the total payment, and x the number of students in a class. The equation is: y = 100( x ) + 2,000

4 . Let y = the total cost of attendance, and x the number of years enrolled. The equation is: y = 3,000( x ) + 500

12.2: slope and y-intercept of a linear equation

5 . The independent variable is the hours worked on a car. The dependent variable is the total labor charges to fix a car.

6 . Let y = the total charge, and x the number of hours required. The equation is: y = 55 x + 75
The slope is 55 and the intercept is 75.

7 . y = 55(3.5) + 75 = 267.50

8 . Because the intercept is included in both equations, while you are only interested in the difference in costs, you do not need to include the intercept in the solution. The difference in number of hours required is: 6.3 – 2.4 = 3.9.
Multiply this difference by the cost per hour: 55(3.9) = 214.5.
The difference in cost between the two jobs is $214.50.

12.3: scatter plots

9 . The X and Y variables have a strong linear relationship. These variables would be good candidates for analysis with linear regression.

10 . The X and Y variables have a strong negative linear relationship. These variables would be good candidates for analysis with linear regression.

11 . There is no clear linear relationship between the X and Y variables, so they are not good candidates for linear regression.

12 . The X and Y variables have a strong positive relationship, but it is curvilinear rather than linear. These variables are not good candidates for linear regression.

How to answer quantitative data
Alhassan Reply
what's up here ... am new here
sorry question a bit unclear...do you mean how do you analyze quantitative data? If yes, it depends on the specific question(s) you set in the beginning as well as on the data you collected. So the method of data analysis will be dependent on the data collecter and questions asked.
how to solve for degree of freedom
Quantitative data is the data in numeric form. For eg: Income of persons asked is 10,000. This data is quantitative data on the other hand data collected for either make or female is qualitative data.
Degree of freedom is the unconditionality. For example if you have total number of observations n, and you have to calculate variance, obviously you will need mean for that. Here mean is a condition, without which you cannot calculate variance. Therefore degree of freedom for variance will be n-1.
data that is best presented in categories like haircolor, food taste (good, bad, fair, terrible) constitutes qualitative data
vegetation types (grasslands, forests etc) qualitative data

how we make a classes of this(170.3,173.9,171.3,182.3,177.3,178.3,174.175.3)
why is always lower class bundry used
Assume you are in a class where quizzes are 20% of your grade, homework is 20%, exam _1 is 15%,exam _2 is 15%, and the final exam is 20%.Suppose you are in the fifth week and you just found out that you scored a 58/63 on the fist exam. You also know that you received 6/9,8/10,9/9 on the first

how to construct a histogram
Baalisi Reply
You have to plot the class midpoint and the frequency
ok so you use those two to draw the histogram right.
ok can i be a friend so you can be teaching me small small
how do you calculate cost effectiveness?
Hi everyone, this is a very good statistical group and am glad to be part of it. I'm just not sure how did I end up here cos this discussion just popes on my screen so if I wanna ask something in the future, how will I find you?
To make a histogram, follow these steps: On the vertical axis, place frequencies. Label this axis "Frequency". On the horizontal axis, place the lower value of each interval. ... Draw a bar extending from the lower value of each interval to the lower value of the next interval.
I really appreciate that

I want to test linear regression data such as maintenance fees vs house size. Can I use R square, F test to test the relationship? Is the good condition of R square greater than 0.5
Mok Reply
yes of course must have use f test and also use t test individually multple coefficients
hi frnd I'm akeem by name, I wanna study economics and statistics wat ar d thing I must do to b a great economist
Is R square cannot analysis linear regression of X vs Y relationship?
To be an economist you have to be professional in maths

what is random sampling what is sample error
Nistha Reply
@Nistha Kashyap Random sampling is the selection of random items (or random numbers) from the group. A sample error occurs when the selected samples do not truely represent the whole group. The can happen when most or all of the selected samples are taken from only one section of the group;
Thus the sample is not truely random.

Differences between sample mean & population mean
mohammed Reply
Not difference in the formula except the notation, sample mean is denoted by x bar and population mean is denoted by mu symbol. There is formula as well as notation between difference variance and standard deviations
Likely the difference would be in the result, unless the sample is an exact representation of the population (which is unlikely.)
what is data
Nii Avin - Data is just a simple way to refer to the numbers in the population, or in the sample used in your calculations.
what are the types of data
Data is the very pale android from the Star Trek Enterprise
Am Emmanuel from Nigeria
Am Qudus from Nigeria
am Handson from Cameroon
what is a mode?
Nii - data is whatever you are sampling. Such as the number of students in each classroom.
Handson Ndintek - the mode is the number appearing most frequently. Example: 7 9 11 7 4 6 3 7 2. 7 is the mode. In a group such as 7 9 1 4 6 3, there is no mode because no number appears more often than any other.
