Using the methods in Section 11.1, test the hypothesis (α =
0.05) that the population proportions of red and brown are equal
(pred = pbrown). You are testing if their proportions are equal to
one another. NOTE: These are NOT independent samples, but we will
use this approach anyway to practice the method. This also means
that n1 and n2 will both be the total number of candies in all the
bags. The “x” values for red and brown are...

Consider a scenario where you have two samples. Sample 1
contains 50 observations, has the sample average value of 38 and
the sample standard deviation of 2.5. Sample 2 contains 50
observations, has the sample average of 39 and the sample standard
deviation of 2.0.
Based on this information, please conduct a 95% significance
test for the equality of the two population means. Note that we
don’t know the population standard deviations but we CAN assume
that they are equal....

A study of reading comprehension in children compared three
methods of instruction. The three methods of instruction are called
Basal, DRTA, and Strategies. As is common in such studies, two
pretest variables were measured before any instruction was given.
One purpose of the pretest was to see if the three groups of
children were similar in their comprehension skills prior to the
start of the study. The READING data set described in the Data
Appendix gives two pretest measures that...

PAIRED SAMPLES T TEST A Corporation Psychologist believes that
exercise affects self-image. To investigate this probability, 14
employees of the corporation are randomly selected to participate
in a jogging program. Before beginning the program, they are given
a questionnaire that measures self-image. Then they begin the
jogging program. They jogged 4 days a week for 20 minutes. Each
employee’s self-image is measured again after two months on the
program. The results are as follows: the higher the score, the
higher...

Researchers wanted to explore different treatment methods to
effect memory skills in high school freshmen. Subjects were given a
memory test (under multiple conditions) these were the results:
Group 1
