Question

A coin is tossed 73 times and 30 heads are observed. Would we
infer that this is a fair coin? Use a 97% level confidence interval
to base your inference.

The sample statistic for the proportion of heads is: (3
decimals)

The standard error in this estimate is: (3
decimals)

The correct z* value for a 97% level confidence interval
is: (3 decimals)

The lower limit of the confidence interval is: (3
decimals)

The upper limit of the confidence interval is: (3
decimals)

Based on this confidence interval, it is ---Select---
not plausible plausible that the coin is fair.

How would a 99% confidence interval compare to the 97% you
constructed?

They would have different centers.There is no way to tell how they would compare.They would have the same center.The 99% CI would be wider.The 99% CI would be narrower.

Q13:
A coin is flipped 100 times, and 59 heads are observed. Find a
80% confidence interval of π (the true population proportion of
getting heads) and draw a conclusion based on the collected data.
Hint: Choose the best one.
please answer in the same format as these examples below
A) (0.471, 0.596) a 80% confidence interval of π and we conclude
it is a fair coin.
or
H) (0.633, 0.692) a 80% confidence interval of π and we conclude...

a
coin tossed 4040 times. Out of 4040 we have 1992 heads. A student
wants to test the coin is fair or not at a= .05. Carry out the test
using the p-value approach.

Suppose a coin is randomly tossed n = 400 times, resulting in X
= 240 Heads. Answer each of the following; show all work!
(a) Calculate the point estimate, and the corresponding
two-sided 95% confidence interval, for the true probability pi =
P(Heads), based on this sample.
(b) Calculate the two-sided 95% acceptance region for the null
hypothesis H0: pi = 0.5 that the coin is fair.
(c) Calculate the two-sided p-value (without correction term) of
this sample, under the...

A fair coin is tossed 4 times, what is the probability that it
lands on Heads each time?
You have just tossed a fair coin 4 times and it landed on Heads
each time, if you toss that coin again, what is the probability
that it will land on heads?
Give examples of two independent events.
Dependent events are (sometimes, always, never) (choose one)
mutually exclusive.

A fair coin is tossed for n times independently. (i) Suppose
that n = 3. Given the appearance of successive heads, what is the
conditional probability that successive tails never appear? (ii)
Let X denote the probability that successive heads never appear.
Find an explicit formula for X. (iii) Let Y denote the conditional
probability that successive heads appear, given no successive heads
are observed in the first n − 1 tosses. What is the limit of Y as n...
