The null hypothesis is“the percentage of men who score 45 points or more (out of 50 points) on a statistics test at De Anza College is the same as the percentage of women who score 45 points or more.”The alternate hypothesis is“the percentage of men who score 45 points or more (out of a 50 point test) on a statistics test at De Anza College is more than the percentage of women who score 45 points or more.”

The appropriate hypothesis test to perform and distribution to use is

  • A

    a test of two population proportions, independent groups; Student-t distribution

Questions 11 through 13 refer to the following: In a study of vehicle safety, 15 minivans were crash tested and the repair costs for each of the 15 minivans were recorded. For these 15 minivans, the average repair cost was $1786 and the standard deviation was $937 (based on data from the Highway Loss Data Institute.) Suppose that you want to test the hypothesis that the average repair cost is under $2000. Assume that the underlying population of repair costs follows a normal distribution.

The correct null hypothesis for this test is

  • A

    m 3 1786
  • B

    m£2000
  • C

    m 3 2000
  • D

    m<2000

For problems 14 and 15: Buses on a particular route stop in front of De Anza College every 20 minutes between 3:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. The waiting times are equally likely.

The distribution of the average wait times is:

  • A

    N( 10 , 1. 0050 )
  • B

    U( 0 , 20 )
  • C

Questions 17 and 18 refer to the following: A radio news story claimed that half of all U.S. adults have Internet access. In a national poll about Internet usage (The Pew Internet Project), 12,638 U.S. adults were surveyed and it was found that 6413 of those surveyed had Internet access. At a 5% level of significance, perform a hypothesis test to test the claim made by the radio news story.

The hypothesis test is:

  • A

    right - tailed
  • B

    left - tailed
  • C

    two–tailed
  • D

    no-tailed

Questions 19 - 21 refer to the following: An organic fertilizer and a conventional chemical fertilizer are tested to determine if the organic fertilizer produces more blossoms per stalk. 43 pairs of seed (the pair of seeds come from the same parent plant) are treated. One seed is treated with the organic fertilizer and the other seed is treated with the conventional chemical fertilizer. After a growing season of identical watering and sunlight, the number of blossoms on each stalk in a matched pair is recorded. For each pair, the difference in the number of blossoms per stalk (organic fertilizer plant blossoms–conventional chemical fertilizer plant blossoms) is computed. _The statistics are: xd = 2.2 sd = 5.3 n = 43

What type of hypothesis test is conducted?

  • A

    Test of a single population mean
  • B

    Test of two population proportions, independent groups
  • C

    Matched or Paired Samples
  • D

    Test of two population means, independent groups

s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
