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 314 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. H0: p = 0.261; H1: p > 0.261 H0: p = 0.261; H1: p < 0.261 H0: p ≠ 0.261; H1: p = 0.261 H0: p = 0.261; H1: p ≠ 0.261 (b) What sampling distribution will you use? The standard normal, since np > 5 and nq > 5. The Student's t, since np < 5 and nq < 5. The standard normal, since np < 5 and nq < 5. The Student's t, since np > 5 and nq > 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.) Sketch the sampling distribution and show the area corresponding to the P-value. WebAssign Plot WebAssign Plot WebAssign Plot WebAssign Plot (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)

0.01 is the level of significance

H0: p = 0.261; H1: p ≠ 0.261

B)

The standard normal, since np > 5 and nq > 5.

Test statistic,

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

z = (0.1943 - 0.261)/sqrt(0.261*(1-0.261)/314)

z = -2.69

C)

P-value = 0.0071

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

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...

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 23 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. (a) What is the level of
significance? State the null and alternate hypotheses. H0: p =
0.67; H1: p >...

The following is based on information from The Wolf in the
Southwest: The Making of an Endangered Species, by David E. Brown
(University of Arizona Press). Before 1918, the proportion of
female wolves in the general population of all southwestern wolves
was about 50%. However, after 1918, southwestern cattle ranchers
began a widespread effort to destroy wolves. In a recent sample of
37 wolves, there were only 11 females. One theory is that male
wolves tend to return sooner than...

In a fishing lodge brochure, the lodge advertises that 75% of
its guests catch northern pike over 20 pounds. Suppose that last
summer 59 out of a random sample of 86 guests did, in fact, catch
northern pike weighing over 20 pounds. Does this indicate that the
population proportion of guests who catch pike over 20 pounds is
different from 75% (either higher or lower)? Use α = 0.05. (a) What
is the level of significance? State the null and...
