In a process for which we have to use discrete probabilities to describe if an activity was carried out correctly or not, which of the following statements determines the defect probability of the entire process?
The product of the individual defect probabilities
The highest value of the individual defect probabilities
The smallest value of the individual defect probabilities
This really depends on the process, as it is possible that one process is more robust than the other

a) Emma wishes to know whether gender has any relation with whether one prefers wine, beer, or liqueur. She surveys a group of men and women and records the number of participants who prefer wine, the number who prefer beer and the number who prefer liqueur. (yes or no)

b) Danielle surveys a group of people on how often they eat dinner at restaurants and diners. The age and annual income of each participant are recorded. Danielle is interested in knowing whether these two factors are important in determining how often one goes out for dinner. (yes or no)

c) A study intends to determine whether the average annual interest rate has any relation with the number of households who go overseas on a holiday at least once a year. Heidi collects data on the average annual interest rate and the number of households that travelled overseas at least once in that year over 6 years. (yes or no)

d) It has been proposed that one's education level has a strong relation with one's income level. Barbara collects data from a large group of 38 year-old adults about their education level (primary and lower, secondary, tertiary and higher) and their income level (to the nearest $100). Barbara plans to test this data to see whether the mean income in each education level is the same across all three levels. (yes or no)

To obtain information on the corrosion-resistance properties of a certain type of steel conduit, 45 specimens are buried in soil for a 2-year period.

To obtain information on the corrosion-resistance properties of a certain type of steel conduit, 45 specimens are buried in soil for a 2-year period. The maximum penetration (in mils) for each specimen is then measured, yielding a sample average penetration of x = 53.2 and a sample standard deviation of s = 4.8. The conduits were manufactured with the specification that true average penetration be at most 50 mils. They will be used unless it can be demonstrated conclusively that the specification has not been met. What would you conclude? (Use a = 0.05.) 

State the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses.

Calculate the test statistic and determine the P-value. (Round your test statistic to two decimal places and your p-value to four decimal places.) 

State the conclusion in the problem context. 

  • Reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the true average penetration is more than 50 mils. 

  • Reject the null hypothesis. There is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the true average penetration is more than 50 mils. 

  • Do not reject the null hypothesis. There is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the true average penetration is more than 50 mils. 

  • Do not reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the true average penetration is more than 50 mils.

For a certain river, suppose the drought length Y is the number of consecutive time intervals in which the water supply remains below a critical value y0 (a deficit), preceded by and followed by periods in which the supply exceeds this critical value (a surplus). An article proposes a geometric distribution with p = 0.409 for this random variable. (Round your answers to three decimal places.)

(a) What is the probability that a drought lasts exactly 3 intervals? At most 3 intervals?

exactly 3 intervals     .0684

(b) What is the probability that the length of a drought exceeds its mean value by at least one standard deviation?

The shear strength of each of ten test spot welds is determined, yielding the following data (psi).

389   405   409   367   358   415   376   375   367   362

(a) Assuming that shear strength is normally distributed, estimate the true average shear strength and standard deviation of shear strength using the method of maximum likelihood. (Round your answers to two decimal places.)

average      382.3  psi
standard deviation      20.8 psi

(b) Again assuming a normal distribution, estimate the strength value below which 95% of all welds will have their strengths. [Hint: What is the 95th percentile in terms of μ and σ? Now use the invariance principle.] (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

(c) Suppose we decide to examine another test spot weld. Let X = shear strength of the weld. Use the given data to obtain the mle of P(X ≤ 400). [Hint:

P(X ≤ 400) = Φ((400 − μ)/σ).]

A data set lists earthquake depths. The summary statistics are n=600, x̅=671 km, s=4.53 km. Use a 0.01 significance level to test the claim of a seismologist that these earthquakes are from a population with a mean equal to 6.00. Assume that a simple random sample has been selected. Identify the null and alternative hypotheses, test statistic, P-value, and state the final conclusion that addresses the original claim.

Using a long rod that has length μ, you are going to lay out asquare plot in which the length of each side is μ. Thus thearea of the plot will be μ2. However, you do notknow the value of μ, so you decide to make n independentmeasurements X1, X2, ..., Xn ofthe length. Assume that each Xi has mean μ(unbiased measurements) and varianceσ2.
a. Show that x 2 is not an unbiased estimator for μ2.
b. For what value k is the estimator x 2 -kS2 unbiased for μ2?
