Question

Two college students gathered data on prices for a random sample of 30 textbooks from the campus bookstore. They found that the average price was $147.32 and the standard deviation of prices was $57.18. The data they gathered was not strongly skewed.

a) Identify the observational units for this study.

b) Identify the variable being measured on each observational unit and state whether the variable is categorical or quantitative.

c) Identify the parameter of interest in words

d) Use the 2SD approach (not the **Theory Based Inference
Applet**) to construct a 95% confidence interval for the
parameter.

e) Interpret your interval from part d)

Assume that a simple random sample has been selected from a
normally distributed population. We want to test the claim that for
the population of female college students at a particular
university, the mean weight is given by μ=155lb. The sample data
are summarized as follow: n=20, x=160lb, and s=18.5 lb. Use a
significant level of α=0.5. a. Identify the relevant variable and
parameter b. State null and alternative hypothesis c. Find the test
statistic value d. Find and interpret...

A random sample of 22 STAT 250 students was collected and the
file size of Data Analysis 2 was recorded. The data was measured in
megabytes. The instructors of the course claim that the file size
will be different from 5 megabytes. Consider the population of all
file sizes to be right skewed. Using a= 0.01, is there sufficient
evidence to conclude that the mean file size of Data Analysis 2 is
different from 5 megabytes? Conduct a full hypothesis...

An experiment was carried out to measure the effect of growth
hormone on girls affected by a growth disorder called Turner’s

Their heights were measured at the time the hormone was first
administered and...
