Question

Identify the test statistic (the formula, not a value) that should be used for testing the following given claims.

(a) The mean of the differences between IQ scores of husbands and IQ scores of their wives is equal to 0

(b) The mean age age of female CIA agents is equal to the mean age of male CIA agents

(c) The proportion of left-handed men is equal to the proportion of left-handed women

(d) The variation among pulse rates of women is equal to the variation among pulse rates of men

Answer #1

A)The test used here is t test for difference of means

The formula is

t = [ (x1 - x2) - d ] / SE

where x1 is the mean of sample 1, x2 is the mean of sample 2, d is the hypothesized difference between population means, and SE is the standard error and

SE = sqrt[ (s1^{2}/n1) + (s2^{2}/n2) ]

where s1 is the standard deviation of sample 1, s2 is the standard deviation of sample 2, n1 is the size of sample 1, and n2 is the size of sample 2.

2)The test is t test for independent sample means

3)The test used here is z test for 2 proportions . The formula is z =

4) The test to be used here is F test for equality of two variances . The formula to be used is

Test the given claim. Use the P-value method or the traditional
method as indicated. Identify the null hypothesis, alternative
hypothesis, test statistic, critical value(s) or P-value,
conclusion about the null hypothesis, and final conclusion that
addresses the original claim.

The Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes (SSHA) is a
psychological test that measures the motivation, attitude toward
school, and study habits of students. Scores range from 0 to 200. A
selective private college gives the SSHA to a simple random sample
of both male and female first-year students to study the difference
in mean attitudes towards school and study habits between men and
women. The data for men and women:

(a) An industry trade publication claims that the population
average size of a television sold in the US is 45 inches. The owner
of an appliance stores believes the actual population mean size is

?In an article titled “Unilateral Nostril Breathing Influences
Lateralized Cognitive Performance” that appeared in Brain and
Cognition (1989), researchers Block et al. published results from
an experiment involving assessments of spatial and verbal cognition
when breathing through only the right versus left nostril. The
subjects were 30 male and 30 female right-handed introductory
psychology students who volunteered to participate in exchange for
course credit. Initial testing on spatial and verbal tests revealed
the following summary statistics. Note that the scores...

Findings In a cohort of 2215 adults
with COVID-19 who were admitted to intensive care units at 65
sites, 784 (35.4%) died within 28 days, with wide variation among
hospitals. Factors associated with death included older age, male
sex, morbid obesity, coronary artery disease, cancer, acute organ
dysfunction, and admission to a hospital with fewer intensive care
unit beds.
Meaning This study identified
demographic, clinical, and hospital-level factors associated with
death in critically ill patients with COVID-19 that may be used to...

the population mean. This means:
The sample mean always equals the population mean.
The average sample mean, over all possible samples, equals the
population mean.
The sample mean will only vary a little from the population
mean.
The sample mean has a normal distribution.
2.Which of the following statements is
CORRECTabout the sampling distribution of the

Monumental function in British Neolithic burial practices
Ian Kinnes
The high-risk rate of survival for the non-megalithic series of
Neolithic funerary monuments, recently re-emphasized by Piggott
(1973: 34), introduces a further variable into the deductive study
of burial practices. In Britain and Europe the overall distribution
of monumental forms present both lacunae and a marked preponderance
of cairns over earthen mounds which are in ill accord with the
known or predicted...
