A recent study of high school students shows the percentage of females and males who have at LEAST one notation in their school record for inappropriate behavior. A simple random sample of high school students was interviewed. The students were asked whether they had a notation for inappropriate behavior in their school record. Of the 100 females, 21 answered yes, as did 145 of the 400 males.

Part A: Construct and interpret a 99% confidence interval for the difference in population proportions of females and males who have at LEAST one notation for inappropriate behavior. Be sure to state the parameter, check conditions, perform calculations, and make conclusion(s). (8 points)

Part B: Does your interval from part A give convincing evidence of a difference between the population proportions? Explain. (2 points) (10 points)

In a certain high school, uniforms are optional. A study shows that high school students who wear uniforms have a lower grade average than students who don't wear uniforms. From this study, the school administration claims that they should not require the students to wear uniforms because that is the cause of the lowering grades. Another possible explanation is that students who wear uniforms are poorer than the students who don't wear uniforms and the economic situation of their parents...

A recent study found that toddlers who have a diet high in processed foods may have a slightly lower IQ later in life. The conclusion came from a long-term investigation of 14,000 people whose health was monitored at 3,4,7, and 8 years of age. e) One analysis found that of the 4000 children for which there were complete data, there was a significant difference in IQ between those who had had “processed” (i.e., junk) food and those who followed health-conscious...

A recent Pew Center Research survey revealed that 68% of high school students have used tobacco related products. Suppose a statistician randomly selected 20 high school students. Use this information to answer questions 39-41. To find the probability that exactly 15 used tobacco products, would you use the Binomial, Geometric, or Poisson distribution to find the probability? Set up the problem to find P (X = 15) using the appropriate distribution. Do NOT solve. What is the expected number of...
