Question

An experiment on memory was performed, in which 16 subjects were
randomly assigned to one of two groups, called "Sentences" or
"Intentional". Each subject was given a list of 50 words. Subjects
in the "Sentences" group were told to form multiple sentences, each
using at least two words from the list, and to keep forming
sentences until all the words were used at least once. Subjects in
the "Intentional" group were told to spend five minutes memorizing
as many of the 50 words as possible. Subjects from both groups were
then asked to write down as many words from their lists as they
could recall. The data are in the table below.

"Sentences" group |
31 | 27 | 33 | 29 | 31 | 33 | 30 | 28 |

"Intentional" group |
32 | 32 | 30 | 30 | 32 | 28 | 36 | 32 |

Enter this data into JMP in "long form" (e.g. each column should be
a variable and each row should be an observation).

IMPORTANT: to format this data correctly, you need to think about
what your two variables are (they are not 'Sentences' and
'Intentional'). You may want to look at how the deflategate data
are formatted if you have trouble figuring this out.

We are interested in determining if there is a significant
difference in the average number of words recalled for subjects in
the "sentences" group vs. subjects in the "intentional" group,
using *α* = 0.05. Use JMP to answer the questions below, and
round all answers to three decimal places.

a. The appropriate null/alternative hypothesis pair for this study
is:

(you have two attempts at this question)

H_{0}: *μ*_{d} = 0 ; H_{A}:
*μ*_{d} ≠ 0H_{0}:
*μ*_{sentences} - *μ*_{intentional} =
0 ; H_{A}: *μ*_{sentences} -
*μ*_{intentional} > 0 Ho:
*μ*_{sentences} - *μ*_{intentional} =
0 ; H_{A}: *μ*_{sentences} -
*μ*_{intentional} < 0H_{0}:
*μ*_{sentences} - *μ*_{intentional} =
0 ; H_{A}: *μ*_{sentences} -
*μ*_{intentional} ≠ 0H_{0}:
*μ*_{d} = 0 ; H_{A}: *μ*_{d}
> 0H_{0}: *μ*_{d} = 0 ; H_{A}:
*μ*_{d} < 0

b. Enter the values for the following statistics:

*x*_{sentences} =

s_{sentences} =

*x*_{intentional} =

s_{intentional} =

(*x*_{sentences} - *x*_{intentional})
=

standard error of (*x*_{sentences} -
*x*_{intentional}) = (you have to use
'Analyze / Fit Y by X' to get JMP to calculate this)

test statistic: t =

p-value =

c. Report the 95% confidence interval JMP gives for
*μ*_{sentences} -
*μ*_{intentional}

Lower bound =

Upper bound =

d. From these results, our statistical conclusion should be:

(You have two attempts at this question.)

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" differ
significantly, because the p-value is less than *α* and zero
is inside the confidence interval

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" differ
significantly, because the p-value is less than *α* and zero
is outside the confidence interval

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" differ
significantly, because the p-value is less than *α* and
-1.25 is inside the confidence interval

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" differ
significantly, because the p-value is less than *α* and
-1.25 is outside the confidence interval

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" do not differ
significantly, because the p-value is greater than *α* and
zero is inside the confidence interval

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" do not differ
significantly, because the p-value is greater than *α* and
zero is outside the confidence interval

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" do not differ
significantly, because the p-value is greater than *α* and
-1.25 is inside the confidence interval

The means for "sentences" and "intentional" do not differ
significantly, because the p-value is greater than *α* and
-1.25 is outside the confidence interval

Answer #1

Six sets of identical twins were randomly selected from a
population of identical twins. One child was taken at random from
each pair to form an experimental group. These children
participated in a program designed to promote creative thinking.
The other child from each pair was part of the control group that
did not participate in the program to promote creative thinking. At
the end of the program, a creative problem-solving test was given,
with the results shown in the...

Suppose a group of 900 smokers (who all wanted to give up
smoking) were randomly assigned to receive an antidepressant drug
or a placebo for six weeks. Of the 190 patients who received the
antidepressant drug, 66 were not smoking one year later. Of the 710
patients who received the placebo, 322 were not smoking one year
later. Given the null hypothesis H0:(pdrug−pplacebo)=0 H 0 : ( p d

Suppose a group of 700 smokers (who all wanted to give up
smoking) were randomly assigned to receive an antidepressant drug
or a placebo for six weeks. Of the 195 patients who received the
antidepressant drug, 90 were not smoking one year later. Of the 505
patients who received the placebo, 170 were not smoking one year
later. Given the null hypothesis H0:(pdrug−pplacebo)=0 and the
alternative hypothesis Ha:(pdrug−pplacebo)≠0, conduct a test to see
if taking an antidepressant drug can help...

Suppose a group of 800 smokers (who all wanted to give up

257 patients who received the placebo, 42 were not smoking one year

In the book Essentials of Marketing Research, William
R. Dillon, Thomas J. Madden, and Neil H. Firtle discuss a research
proposal in which a telephone company wants to determine whether
the appeal of a new security system varies between homeowners and
renters. Independent samples of 140 homeowners and 60 renters are
randomly selected. Each respondent views a TV pilot in which a test
ad for the new security system is embedded twice. Afterward, each
respondent is interviewed to find out...

Two computer users were discussing tablet computers. A higher
proportion of people ages 16 to 29 use tablets than the proportion

tablet owners for each age group. Test at the 1% level of
significance. (For subscripts let 1 = 16-29 year old users, and 2 =
30 years old and older users.)

Rhino viruses typically cause common colds. In a test of the
effectiveness of echinacea, 36 of the 41 subjects treated with
echinacea developed rhinovirus infections. In a placebo group, 96
of the 113 subjects developed rhinovirus infections. Use a 0.01
significance level to test the claim that echinacea has an effect
on rhinovirus infections. Complete parts (a) through (c) below.
a. Test the claim using a hypothesis test. Consider the first
sample to be the sample of subjects treated with...

During one particular war, the U.S. military was concerned about
the nutrition of its recruits. Many did not have a sufficient
number of teeth to chew the food provided to soldiers. As a result,
it was likely that they would be undernourished and unable to
fulfill their duties as soldiers. The requirements at that time
specified that a recruit must have "at least four sound double
teeth, one above and one below on each side of the mouth, and so...

According to the National Health and Nutrition Survey (NHANES)
sponsored by the U.S. government, a random sample of 712 males
between 20 and 29 years of age and a random sample of 1,001 males
over the age of 75 were chosen and the weight of each of the males
were recorded (in kg). Do the data provide evidence that the
younger male population weighs more (on average) than the older
male population? Use “Y” for ages 20-29 and “S” for...
