Question

Data for this analysis was collected over many years of class. You can assume that this data represents samples selected from larger groups of students.

Students in a business statistics class were asked to agree/disagree with the following statement at the end of the class: "I really enjoyed this class."

A study was conducted to determine if a difference existed between the responses of students in two different teaching methods used - traditional live teaching and online teaching. The Statistix printout is shown below.

**Hypothesis Test - Two Proportions**

**Sample**

**Size Successes Proportion**

Live Class 500 440 0.88000

Online Class 500 420 0.84000

Difference 0.04000

Null Hypothesis: p1 = p2

Alternative Hyp: p1 ? p2

SE (difference) 0.02195

Z (uncorrected) 1.82 P 0.0683

**95% Confidence Interval of Difference**

-0.00301 < p1-p2 < 0.08301

Based on the confidence interval, what conclusion can we make concerning the two population proportions?

We are 95% confident the proportion of all students in the live class who agreed with the statement exceeded the proportion of all students in the online class who agreed with the statement. |

We are 95% confident the proportion of all students in the live class who agreed with the statement equals the proportion of all students in the online class who agreed with the statement. |

We are 95% confident the proportion of all students in the live class who agreed with the statement is less than the proportion of all students in the online class who agreed with the statement. |

At the 95% confidence level, we cannot determine which population proportion is bigger. |

Answer #1

Suppose it is desired to compare the proportion of male and
female students who voted in the last presidential election. We
decide to randomly and independently sample 1000 male and 1000
female students and ask if they voted or not. A printout of the
results is shown below. Hypothesis Test - Two Proportions Sample
Size Successes Proportion Males 1000 475 0.47500 Females 1000 525
0.52500 Difference -0.05000 Null Hypothesis: p1 = p2 Alternative
Hyp: p1 ≠ p2 SE (difference) 0.02236...

For this project, you will make decisions about how two
parameters (proportions or means) compare using hypothesis tests,
and you will estimate the difference between the two parameters
using confidence intervals. For each confidence, report the
following: the confidence interval limits rounded as directed (from
StatCrunch) An interpretation of the confidence interval (e.g. "I
am 95% confident ... .") Here is a template for reporting the
answer for a sample confidence interval problem. Sample problem:

According to a national representative survey done by
Consumer Reports, you should always try to negotiate for a
better deal when shopping or paying for services.† Tips include
researching prices at other stores and on the Internet, timing your
visit late in the month when salespeople are trying to meet quotas,
and talking to a manager rather than a salesperson. Suppose that
random samples of 400 men and 400 women are taken, and that the men
were more likely than...

A recent article in Time magazine argued that people belonging
to the so-called Millennial Generation (defined as those
individuals born between 1980 and the early 2000s) are more
self-centered than their counterparts in previous generations. The
General Social Survey asked a sample of American Adults whether
they agreed or disagreed with the following statement:
“People do not need to be overly concerned with others.”
Data by age group (18-30 “Millennials”, and 31 and over: “Older”)
are shown below:

A study used 1259 patients who had suffered a stroke. The study
randomly assigned each subject to an aspirin treatment or a placebo
treatment. During a 3-year follow-up period, in Sample 1, 634
people received placebo treatments and 25 people died from heart
attack. In sample 2, 625 people received aspirin treatment and 18
died from heart attack. Let p1 denote the population proportion of
death from heart attack for those with no treatment and p2 denote
the population proportion...

In the book Essentials of Marketing Research, William
R. Dillon, Thomas J. Madden, and Neil H. Firtle discuss a research
proposal in which a telephone company wants to determine whether
the appeal of a new security system varies between homeowners and
renters. Independent samples of 140 homeowners and 60 renters are
randomly selected. Each respondent views a TV pilot in which a test
ad for the new security system is embedded twice. Afterward, each
respondent is interviewed to find out...

1. When constructing a confidence interval to estimate a
population proportion, what affects the size of the margin of
error?
A. The sample size
B. The sample proportion
C. The confidence level
D. All of the above affect the size of the margin of error
E. None of the above affect the size of the margin of error

The results below are based on data collected as part of a
student project for an introductory statistics class at UF. If
there is more than one group/treatment, the first group mentioned
is group 1. Data was collected to determine if the price of food
items at Graham Oasis (a convenience store inside UF campus) is
higher, on average, than at a Publix Supermarket located 2 miles
away. The p-value was 0.000, and the confidence interval was (
0.85, 1.62)....

If you were conducting the two-sided hypothesis test,
Ho: μ = 65
Ha: μ ≠ 65
at the 5% significance level, would you reject or fail to reject
Ho. I don't want you to conduct a full hypothesis test here.
Instead, note that one of the above CIs is equivalent to conducting
this test. Tell me which interval and explain why you decided to
reject or fail to reject based on this interval.

PART A) The owner of a golf course wants to determine if his
golf course is more difficult than the one his friend owns. He has
25 golfers play a round of 18 holes on his golf course and records
their scores. Later that week, he has the same 25 golfers play a
round of golf on his friend's course and records their scores
again. The average difference in the scores (treated as the scores
on his course - the...
