Question

True/False

1. Suppose we know for a fact that on a certain memory test, recognition is not any better than recall. However, the P-value for the data from your sample is 0.04, so you were able to reject the null hypothesis at α = 5%. A Type I Error was committed.

2. Consider the following question: Do women make more visits to their primary care physician in a year than men? If independent samples are taken from both females and males, then a Two Independent Samples t-test can be applied.

3. The Levene Test is used in conjunction with the Paired Samples t-test.

4. One of the most feared predators in the ocean is the great white shark. It is known that the white shark grows to a mean length of 20 feet; However, one marine biologist believes that great white sharks off the Bermuda coast grow much longer. The null and alternate hypotheses are ??:?=20 ??:?<20

5. Jen thinks a certain potato chip maker is putting fewer chips in their regular bags of chips. From a random sample of 21 bags of potato chips she calculated a P value of 0.007 for the sample. At the 1% level of significance, Jen’s evidence is not strong enough to reject the null hypothesis.

6. The one-sample t-test is used to compare a sample mean to a population mean when the population standard deviation is known.

7. Some researchers have suggested that blood pressure may tend to be higher on average when measured on a subject's right arm than on their left arm. A doctor decided to investigate this conjecture by taking readings of the systolic blood pressure on both arms of a random selection of twelve patients at his practice. A paired samples t-test can be applied.

8. If the sample size is n = 21 and the population standard deviation is unknown, the critical value t needed to construct a 90% confidence level for μ is t = 1.721.

9. A biotechnology company wants to compare how effective two of its drugs are for treating diabetes. If the biotech company does not reject the null hypothesis that the two drugs are equally effective when in fact the drugs are not equally effective, a type II error occurs.

Answer #1

1)

type I error : TRUE

.........

2)

two different samples are taken : t test : TRUE

................

3. The Levene Test is used in conjunction with the Paired Samples t-test.

FALSE

............

4)

FALSE (Ha >20)this will be hypothesis

........

5)

FALSE

p value<0.01 , so there will be evidence

...............

6)

The one-sample t-test is used to compare a sample mean to a population mean when the population standard deviation is known.

FALSE (T TEST IS USED WHEN POPULATIONSTD DEV IS UNKNOWN)

..........

7)

FALSE (TWO ARMS ARE DIFFERENT)

................

8)

TRUE

.....

9)

TRUE

typeII error occur when non rejection of null hypothesis happens

Small Sample Mean Problem. The maker of potato chips uses an
automated packaging machine to pack its 20-ounce bag of chips. At
the end of every shift 18 bags are selected at random and tested to
see if the equipment needs to be readjusted....

A manufacturer of potato chips would like to know whether its
bag filling machine works correctly at the 412 gram setting. Based
on a 23 bag sample where the mean is 410 grams and the variance is
400, is there sufficient evidence at the 0.1 level that the bags
are underfilled or overfilled? Assume the population distribution
is approximately normal.
A) State the null and alternative hypotheses.
B) Find the value of the test statistic. Round your answer to
three...

If you have 1 group and know the population standard deviation,
which test statistic do you use? Question 20 options:
A) dependent samples T-test
B) 2 independent samples T-test
C) Z-test
D) single group T-test
2) The null hypothesis for the dependent t-test is essentially
the same as Question 14 options:
A) Null hypothesis for a Z-score hypothesis test
B) Null hypothesis for a 1 group t-test
C) Null hypothesis for a two independent groups t- test
D) The effect...

Test the hypothesis:
Population appears to be normally distributed.
Given the sample statistics n = 20, = 8.2, and s = 1.2,
find the critical value(s) tcr and
test statistic t for testing the claim μ = 8.6 at
significance α = 10%.
Then, state the conclusion of this hypothesis test.
Select one:
tcr = 1.729, t ≈ 1.491, fail to reject
H0
tcr = 1.328, t ≈ 1.491, reject H0
tcr = −1.328, t ≈ −1.491, reject H0
tcr...

Suppose that we want to test the null hypothesis that the mean
of population 1 is equal to the mean of population 2. We select a
random sample from population 1 and a random sample from population
2, and these two samples are independent. Circle the FALSE
statement.
A. We need to perform a two-sided test.
B. If we know the variance of each population, even if they are
different, we can use the Z test. That is, the test...

Paired sample t-test:
Suppose you are interested in deciding if a particular diet is
effective in changing people's weight. You decide to run a "within
subject" experiment. You select 6 people and weigh each of them.
Two weeks and you weigh them again. For each person you compute how
much weight they lose over this period. You find : Non-diet
(subject 1-6): 0,8,3,2,-10,-1. You then put them on the diet and
weigh them again after two weeks and compute how...

When σ (population standard deviation) is unknown
[Critical Value Approach]
The value of the test statistic t for the sample mean is
computed as follows:
t = with
degrees of freedom d.f. = n – 1
where n is the sample size, µ is the mean of the null
hypothesis, H0, and s is the standard deviation of the
sample.
t is in the rejection
zone: Reject the null hypothesis, H0
t is not in the rejection...

1. Which of the following is a major difference between a
hypothesis test with a t statistic and the test with a z-score?
a.
You must know the population standard deviation for the z-score
but not for the t statistic.
b.
You use the normal distribution table to find critical values
for t but not for z.
c.
You must know the population median for the z-score but not for
the t statistic.
d.
There are no major differences between...

1) Psychologists know that people find it easier to remember
items at the beginning and at the end of a list of items. Suppose
you think that level of education might make a difference to the
tendency to remember items in the middle of the list. You randomly
select two groups of subjects, with N = 10 in each
group. Participants in Group 1 have 12 years of
education, and members of group 2 have 20 years of education. Which...

T F 1. A p-value of .008 in hypothesis testing means there is
only a .8% chance we could get such sample statistics from the
population if the null hypothesis is as stated. Such an event is
considered unlikely and we would reject the null hypothesis.
T F 2. As a general rule in hypothesis testing, it is always
safer to set up your alternate hypothesis with a greater-than or
less-than orientation.
_____3. If the level of significance is .02...
