Question

Prose rhythm is characterized as the occurrence of five-syllable
sequences in long passages of text. This characterization may be
used to assess the similarity among passages of text and sometimes
the identity of authors. The following information is based on an
article by D. Wishart and S. V. Leach appearing in *Computer
Studies of the Humanities and Verbal Behavior* (Vol. 3, pp.
90-99). Syllables were categorized as long or short. On analyzing
Plato's *Republic*, Wishart and Leach found that about 26.1%
of the five-syllable sequences are of the type in which two are
short and three are long. Suppose that Greek archaeologists have
found an ancient manuscript dating back to Plato's time (about 427
- 347 B.C.). A random sample of 317 five-syllable sequences from
the newly discovered manuscript showed that 61 are of the type two
short and three long. Do the data indicate that the population
proportion of this type of five syllable sequence is different
(either way) from the text of Plato's *Republic*? Use
*α* = 0.01.

(a) What is the level of significance? ________

State the null and alternate hypotheses.

*___H*_{0}: *p* ≠ 0.261;
*H*_{1}: *p* = 0.261

*___H*_{0}: *p* = 0.261;
*H*_{1}: *p* ≠
0.261

*___H*_{0}: *p* = 0.261;
*H*_{1}: *p* > 0.261

*___H*_{0}: *p* = 0.261;
*H*_{1}: *p* < 0.261

(b) What sampling distribution will you use?

___The standard normal, since *n·p* > 5 and
*n·q* > 5.

___The standard normal, since *n·p* < 5 and
*n·q* < 5.

___The Student's *t*, since *n·p* < 5 and
*n·q* < 5.

___The Student's *t*, since *n·p* > 5 and
*n·q* > 5.

What is the value of the sample test statistic? (Round your answer to two decimal places.) _______

(c) Find the *P*-value of the test statistic. (Round your
answer to four decimal places.) ______

(d) Based on your answers in parts (a) to (c), will you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis? Are the data statistically significant at level α?

___At the α = 0.01 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.

___At the α = 0.01 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.

___At the α = 0.01 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.

___At the α = 0.01 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.

(e) Interpret your conclusion in the context of the application.

___There is sufficient evidence at the 0.01 level to conclude
that the true proportion of the five-syllable sequence differs from
that of the text of Plato's *Republic*.

___There is insufficient evidence at the 0.01 level to conclude
that the true proportion of the five-syllable sequence differs from
that of the text of Plato's
*Republic*.

Answer #1

a)

H0: p = 0.261; H1: p ≠ 0.261

b)

The standard normal, since n·p > 5 and n·q > 5.

c)

phat = 61/317 = 0.192

z = (phat - p)/sqrt(p*(1-p)/n)

= (0.192 - 0.261)/sqrt(0.261*(1-0.261)/317)

= -2.80

c)

p value = 0.0052

d)

_At the α = 0.01 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.

e)

There is sufficient evidence at the 0.01 level to conclude that
the true proportion of the five-syllable sequence differs from that
of the text of Plato's Republic.

Prose rhythm is characterized as the occurrence of five-syllable
sequences in long passages of text. This characterization may be
used to assess the similarity among passages of text and sometimes
the identity of authors. The following information is based on an
article by D. Wishart and S. V. Leach appearing in Computer
Studies of the Humanities and Verbal Behavior (Vol. 3, pp.
90-99). Syllables were categorized as long or short. On analyzing

Symposium is part of a larger work referred to as Plato's
Dialogues. Wishart and Leach† found that about 21.4% of
five-syllable sequences in Symposium are of the type in which four
are short and one is long. Suppose an antiquities store in Athens
has a very old manuscript that the owner claims is part of Plato's
Dialogues. A random sample of 481 five-syllable sequences from this
manuscript showed that 125 were of the type four short and one
long. Do...

A random sample of 30 binomial trials resulted in 12 successes.
Test the claim that the population proportion of successes does not
equal 0.50. Use a level of significance of 0.05.
(a) Can a normal distribution be used for
the distribution? Explain.
Yes, n·p and n·q are both greater than 5
.No, n·p and n·q are both less than
5.
Yes, n·p and n·q are both less than 5

a) USA Today reported that about 47% of the general consumer
population in the United States is loyal to the automobile
manufacturer of their choice. Suppose Chevrolet did a study of a
random sample of 1002 Chevrolet owners and found that 482 said they
would buy another Chevrolet. Does this indicate that the population
proportion of consumers loyal to Chevrolet is more than 47%? Use α
= 0.01.
What is the T value and the P Value?

Women athletes at the a certain university have a long-term
graduation rate of 67%. Over the past several years, a random
sample of 38 women athletes at the school showed that 19 eventually
graduated. Does this indicate that the population proportion of
women athletes who graduate from the university is now less than
67%? Use a 1% level of significance.
