Question

Two researchers conducted a study in which two groups of students were asked to answer 42 trivia questions from a board game. The students in group 1 were asked to spend 5 minutes thinking about what it would mean to be a professor, while the students in group 2 were asked to think about soccer hooligans. These pretest thoughts are a form of priming. The 200 students in group 1 had a mean score of 24.1 with a standard deviation of 3.8 while the 200 students in group 2 had a mean score of 18.2 with a standard deviation of 3.6

Complete parts (a) and (b) below.

(a) Determine the 90% confidence interval for the difference in scores,μ1−μ2.

Interpret the interval.

The lower bound is:

The upper bound is:

Interpret the interval. Choose the correct answer below.

A.The researchers are 90%confident that the difference of the means is in the interval.

B.There is a 90% probability that the difference of the means is in the interval.

C.The researchers are 90% confident that the difference between randomly selected individuals will be in the interval.

D.There is a 90% probability that the difference between randomly selected individuals will be in the interval.

(b) What does this say about priming?

A.Since the90%confidence interval does not contain zero, the results suggest that priming does have an effect on scores.

B.Since the 90%confidence interval contains zero, the results suggest that priming does not have an effect on scores.

C.Since the 90% confidence interval contains zero, the results suggest that priming does have an effect on scores.

D.Since the 90% confidence interval does not contain zero, the results suggest that priming does not have an effect on scores.

Answer #1

(A) Using TI 84 calulator

press stat then tests then 2-SampTint

enter the data

x1 = 24.1, s1 = 3.8, n1= 200

x2 = 18.2, s2 = 3.6, n2 = 200

Pooled: No

c-level = 0.90

press calculate

we get

(5.29, 6.51)

(B) we have calculated a 90% confidence interval, so we can say that the researchers are 90%confident that the difference of the means is in the interval.

option A

(C) Since the confidence interval does not include 0, this means that the riming does have an effect on scores.

option A

A statistics professor asked her students whether or not they
were registered to vote. In a sample of 52 of her students
(randomly sampled from 700 students), 34 said they were registered
to vote.
1. Find a 95% confidence interval for the true proportion of the
professor's students who were registered to vote. (Make sure to
check any necessary conditions and to state a conclusion in the
context of the problem.)
2. A reader of the results concludes that "I...

Seneca was interested in the distance that students commute to
campus. They thought that students were traveling further to come
to King campus than they had been in the past. In the past, the
average distance that students commuted to King campus was 12 km.
This year they surveyed 13 students asking them about the distance
of their daily commute and the results were analyzed with SPSS.
Interpret the SPSS output obtained. What conclusion can the
researchers draw? Write a...

A study was conducted in which students were asked to estimate
the number of calories in a cheeseburger. One group was asked to do
this after thinking about a calorie-laden cheesecake. A second
group was asked to do this after thinking about an organic fruit
salad. The mean number of calories estimated was 772 for the group
that thought about the cheesecake and 1046 for the group that
thought about the organic fruit salad. Suppose that the study was
