Question

Hello if you could please show work for the problems and show the necessary r code for questions b and c I would appreciate it. Thank you

A shoe manufacturer compared material A and material B for the soles of shoes. Twelve volunteers each got two shoes. The left was made with material A and the right with material B. On both shoes, the material was 1 inch thick. Volunteers used the shoes normally for two months and returned them to the manufacturer. Technicians then measured the thickness of the soles and recorded the amount of wear (in microns):

Volunteer 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

Sole A 379 378 328 372 325 304 356 309 354 318 355 392

Sole B 372 376 328 368 283 252 369 321 379 303 328 411

They wish to test H0 : µA −µB = 0 against HA : µA −µB =/= 0, where µA and µB are the unknown population mean amounts of sole wear, using α = 0.05.

(a) Are the two samples paired or independent? Explain your answer.

(b) Make a normal QQ plot of the differences within each pair. Is it reasonable to assume a normal population of differences?

(c) Choose a test appropriate for the hypotheses above and justify your choice based on your answers to parts (a) and (b). Perform the test by computing a p-value, make a test decision, and state your conclusion in the context of the problem.

Answer #1

For part b and c could you please show r code to solve the
problem. Thank you
2. 34 petri dishes are prepared with a growth medium. 16 are
randomly selected and treated with antibiotic A. The other 18 are
treated with antibiotic B. Each dish is inoculated with a bacteria.
Several hours later, the diameter of the bacteria colony in each
dish is measured in mm, with these results: A: 8.59, 7.80, 4.11,
8.68, 8.08, 7.86, 6.97, 8.21, 1.72,...

Could you please solve these using r code if necessary. If not
please show the work thank you.
2. Most penguin species are not sexually dimorphic, which means
they lack obvious outward body characteristics which indicate sex.
Observation of behavior or a blood test can determine Penguin sex.
A penguin researcher is interested in estimating the proportion of
females in a large penguin population. She takes a random sample of
n = 20 penguins and determines the sex of each...

Researchers in a 2015 study by Flannery et al. sought to
estimate the effectiveness of the seasonal influenza vaccine in
preventing acute respiratory infection (ARI). A total of 507
subjects from Texas who showed symptoms of ARI were recruited for
this study. The data provided show the result of each subject's
test for influenza.

Your firm works in construction and buys ASTM A325M8S bolts in
very large numbers. You are interested in purchasing bolts from
different suppliers and have obtained and tested samples of 200
bolts from three suppliers: Allnutt, Boltzman, Coachers.You have
tested these in your new bolt testing machine, purchased after you
had discovered your old bolt testing machine was performing
erratically. (For the purposes of this question, you are safe to
assume that the new machine works perfectly and that its...
