  2. A study of road rage asked separate random samples of 596men and 523women about their behavior while driving. Based on their answers, each re-spondent was assigned a road rage score on a scale of 0to 20. Are the conditions for performing a two-sample t test satisfie

  3. Toyota or Nissan? Are Toyota or Nissan owners more satisfied with their vehicles? Let’s design a study to find out. We’ll select a random sample of 400Toyota owners and a separate random sample of 400Nissan owners. Then we’ll ask each individual in the sample: “Would you say that you are generally satisfied with your (Toyota/Nissan) vehicle?”

  7. Researchers are interested in evaluating the effect of a natural product on reducing blood pressure. This will be done by comparing the mean reduction in blood pressure of a treatment (natural product) group and a placebo group using a two-sample t-test. The researchers would like to be able to detect whether the natural product reduces blood pressure by at least 7points more, on average than the placebo. If groups of size 50are used in the experiment, a two-sample t-test using role="math" localid="1650436089340" α=0.01will have a power of 80%to detect a 7-point difference in mean blood pressure reduction. If the researchers want to be able to detect a 5-point difference instead, then the power of t

  8. Let Xrepresent the score when a fair six-sided die is rolled. For this random variable,μX=3.5 and σX=1.71. If the die is rolled 100times, what is the approximate probability that the total score is at least375

  9. R10.1. Which procedure? For each of the following settings, say which inference procedure from Chapter 8, 9, or 10 you would use. Be specific. For example, you might say, “Two-sample z test for the difference between two proportions.” You do not need to carry out any procedures.(a) Do people smoke less when cigarettes cost more? A random sample of 500smokers was selected. The number of cigarettes each person smoked per day was recorded over a one-month period before a 30% cigarette tax was imposed and again for one month after the tax was imposed.(b) How much greater is the percent of senior citizens who attend a play at least once per year than the percent of people in their twenties who do so?Random samples of 100senior citizens and 100 people in their twenties were surveyed.(c) You have data on rainwater collected at 16 locations in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. One measurement is the acidity of thewater, measured by pH on a scale of 0to 14(the pH of distilled water is 7.0). Estimate the average acidity of rainwater in the Adirondacks.(d) Consumers Union wants to see which of two brands of calculator is easier to use. They recruit 100 volunteers and randomly assign them to twoequal-sized groups. The people in one group use Calculator A and those in the other group use Calculator B. Researchers record the time required for each volunteer to carry out the same series of routine calculations (such as figuring discounts and sales tax, totaling a

  10. Who uses instant messaging? Do younger people use online instant messaging (IM) more often than older people? A random sample of IM users found that 73of the 158people in the sample aged 18to 27said they used IM more often than email. In the 28to 39age group, 26of 143people used IM more often than email.9 Construct and interpret a 90% confidence interval for the difference between the proportions of IM users in these age groups who use IM more often
