Question

Let p1,p2 denote the probability that a randomly selected male and female, respectively, has allergy to nuts. Let n1,n2 be the sample size of a random sample for male and female, respectively. Assume two samples are indepedent. Let X1,X2 be the number of male and female who have allergy to nuts in the random sample, respectively. (1)(3pts) For parameters p1,p2, and p1−p2, find one unbiased estimator for each of them. And show why they are unbiased. (2)(3pts) Derive the formula for the standard error of those estimators in (1). Note that V(X−Y)=V(X)+V(Y) for two independent rv's X,Y. (3)(3pts) For given samples, let n1=100,n2=150,x1=5,x2=9. Compute the the value of those estimators in (1). (4)(3pts) For given samples, let n1=100,n2=150,x1=5,x2=9. Compute the estimated standard errors of those estimators in (2).

Let p1,p2p1,p2 denote the probability that a randomly selected
male and female, respectively, has allergy to nuts. Let n1,n2n1,n2
be the sample size of a random sample for male and female,
respectively. Assume two samples are indepedent. Let X1,X2 be the
number of male and female who have allergy to nuts in the random
sample, respectively.
(1)(3pts) For parameters p1,p2,p1,p2, and p1−p2p1−p2, find one
unbiased estimator for each of them. And show why they are
unbiased.

Let X denote the courtship time for a randomly selected
female-male pair of mating scorpion flies (time from the beginning
of interaction until mating). Suppose the mean value of X is 120
min and the standard deviation of X is 110 min (suggested by data
in the article "Should I Stay or Should I Go? Condition- and
Status-Dependent Courtship Decisions in the Scorpion Fly Panorpa
Cognate"†). (a) Is it plausible that X is normally distributed? No,
courtship time cannot plausibly...

Q1: A random sample of 390 married couples found that 290 had
two or more personality preferences in common. In another random
sample of 570 married couples, it was found that only 36 had no
preferences in common. Let p1 be the population
proportion of all married couples who have two or more personality
preferences in common. Let p2 be the population
proportion of all married couples who have no personality
preferences in common.
(a) Find a 95% confidence interval...

1. A city official claims that the proportion of all commuters
who are in favor of an expanded public transportation system is
50%. A newspaper conducts a survey to determine whether this
proportion is different from 50%. Out of 225 randomly chosen
commuters, the survey finds that 90 of them reply yes when asked if
they support an expanded public transportation system. Test the
official’s claim at α = 0.05.
2. A survey of 225 randomly chosen commuters are asked...
