Question

1. Refer to the Baseball 2012 data, which report information on the 30 Major League Baseball teams for the 2012 season. Set up a variable that divides the teams into two groups, those that had a winning season and those that did not. There are 162 games in the season, so define a winning season as having won 81 or more games. Next, find the median team salary and divide the teams into two salary groups. Let the 15 teams with the largest salaries be in one group and the 15 teams with the smallest salaries be in the other. At the .05 significance level, is there a relationship between salaries and winning? 2. Refer to the Real Estate data, which report information on homes sold in Goodyear, Arizona, and the surrounding area. a. Use an appropriate nonparametric test to determine whether there is a difference in the typical selling price of the homes in the several townships. Assume the selling prices are not normally distributed. Use the .05 significance level. b. Combine the homes with six or more bedrooms into one group and determine whether there is a difference according to the number of bedrooms in the typical selling prices of the homes. Use the .05 significance level and assume the distribution of selling prices is not normally distributed. c. Assume that the distribution of the distance from the center of the city is positively skewed. That is, the normality assumption is not reasonable. Compare the distribution of the distance from the center of the city of the homes that have a pool with those that do not have a pool. Can we conclude there is a difference in the distributions? Use the .05 significance level.

Answer #1

Ans-1.

(a) Major League Baseball is split into two leagues, the National League (NL) and the American League (AL). The main difference between the two leagues is that pictures take at bats in the National League but not in the American League.

(b) An estimated median for the AL is about 1455 hits, and an estimated median for the NL is about 1410 hits. So an estimated difference in median number of hits is 1455 ? 1410 = 45 hits. The American League has more hits.

Also The variability is greater for teams in the American League. the standard deviation is greater, the IQR is greater, or the range is greater.

Refer to the Baseball 2012 data, which report information on the
30 Major League Baseball teams for the 2012 season. At the .05
significance level, can we conclude that there is a difference in
the mean home attendance of teams in the American League versus
teams in the National League?

Refer to the Baseball 2012 data. Compute the mean number of home
runs per game. To dothis, first find the mean number of home runs
per team for 2012. Next, divide this value by 162 (a season
comprises 162 games). Then multiply by 2 because there are two
teams in each game. Use the Poisson distribution to estimate the
number of home runs that will be hit in a game. Find the
probability that: a. There are no home runs...

The salaries of a random sample of 50 major league baseball
players for 2012 are 3.44 million dollars. Assuming the
distribution of salaries for all major league baseball players is
normally distributed with a standard deviation of $0.712 million,
test the claim that the mean salary of major league baseball
players is less than 4 million dollars. Use a significance level of
0.05. What is the test statistic?
What is the critical value?
What is the p-value?
What is the...

Refer to the Estate data, which report information on
homes sold in the Goodyear, Arizona area last year.
a. The mean selling price (in $ thousands) of the homes
was computed earlier to be $221.10, with a standard deviation of
$47.11. Use the normal distribution to estimate the percentage of
homes selling for more than $280.00. Compare this to the actual
result. Does the normal distribution yield a good approximation of
the actual result?
b. The mean distance from the...

The 30 Major League Baseball teams are divided into two
"leagues" of 15 teams each: the American League and the National
League. A random sample of 48 American League players and a random
sample of 48 National League players were selected. The sample mean
and standard deviation of the salaries of the sampled players is
shown in the table below.

Refer to the Baseball 2016 data. Compute the mean number of home
runs per game. To do this, first find the mean number of home runs
per team for 2016. Next, divide this value by 162 (a season
comprises 162 games). Then multiply by 2 because there are two
teams in each game. Use the Poisson distribution to estimate the
number of home runs that will be hit in a game. Find the
probability that:
a. There are no home...

In Table 7.4 on page 173, all ten top hitters in the major
league baseball in 2011 had lower batting averages in 2012,
supporting regression toward the mean. Treating averages as whole
numbers (without decimal points) and subtracting their batting
averages for 2012 from those for 2011 (so that positive difference
scores support regression toward the mean), we have the following
ten difference scores: 14, 39, 61, 60, 13, 21, 50, 93, 16, 61.

A study of 30 Major League baseball teams investigates whether
more strikouts in nine innings tends to be correlated with fewer
walks and hits per inning . Consider the hypotheses:
The sample correlation between number of strikeouts in nine
innings and the number of walks and hits per inning is r =
-0.594 and the p-value is 0.036.
At what value would the Bootstrap Distribution for correlation
be centered?
