Dole Pineapple Inc. is concerned that the 16-ounce can of sliced pineapple is being overfilled. Assume the population standard deviation of the process is .04 ounce. The quality control department took a random sample of 60 cans and found that the arithmetic mean weight was 16.05 ounces. At the 3% level of significance (Step 2), can we conclude that the mean weight is greater than 16 ounces?

Step 1: State the null hypothesis (H0) and the alternate hypothesis (H1). (insert >, >, =,< or <) where appropriate. Ho:  ______ 16 H1:  _______16

Step 2: you select the level of significance, =.03 (Given in problem description)

Step 3: Identify the test statistic (circle ‘t distribution’ or ‘Normal Curve (z)’) use the t distribution or Normal Curve (z)

Step 4: Formulate the decision rule Reject Ho if _______________________

Step 5: Take a sample arrive at a decision

Step 6: Interpret the results (circle ‘Reject’ or ‘Accept’) circle ‘are’ or ‘are not’) Reject or Accept Ho. The cans are or are not being overfilled.

An engineer has designed a valve that will regulate water pressure on an automobile engine. The valve was tested on 150 engines and the mean pressure was 4.0 pounds/square inch (psi). Assume the population standard deviation is 0.7 . If the valve was designed to produce a mean pressure of 4.1 psi, is there sufficient evidence at the 0.05 level that the valve does not perform to the specifications? is there sufficient or not sufficient evidence?

Problem Set 3: One-Way randomized ANOVA

Research Scenario: A health psychologist is looking into the effects of different kinds of exercise on stress. She divides volunteers into three exercise groups: high-intensity interval training (HIIT) (n=8), yoga (n=8), or running (n=8). The volunteers participate in a set number of hours of the exercise for a month, after which the psychologist measures their stress levels on a scale of 1-40 where lower scores = lower stress, and higher scores = higher stress. The scores for each group are shown in the table below. Input the data into SPSS (remember you will enter the data only using 2 columns - one for group (make sure you label the values) and one fore stress. Conduct a one-way ANOVA to determine the effect of these different exercises on stress levels.

11) Paste relevant SPSS output

12) Create an appropriate graph to display this data.

13) Write an APA-style Results section based on your analysis. All homework "Results sections" should follow the examples provided in the presentations and textbooks. They should include the statistical statement within a complete sentence that mentions the type of test conducted, whether the test was significant, and if relevant, effect size and/or post hoc analyses. Don't forget to include a decision about the null hypothesis.

Fully describe how to use the uniﬁed approach for a Poisson distribution describing signal and background events. Illustrate this by constructing a 90% conﬁdence level interval for the number of observed events given a signal yield µ of 2 events and an assumed background of 1 events. You may wish to consider total event yields between zero and ten.

You wish to test the following claim ( H a ) at a significance level of α = 0.002 . H o : p 1 = p 2 H a : p 1 > p 2 You obtain 86.6% successes in a sample of size n 1 = 732 from the first population. You obtain 79% successes in a sample of size n 2 = 395 from the second population. For this test, you should NOT use the continuity correction, and you should use the normal distribution as an approximation for the binomial distribution.

In a recent Super Bowl, a TV network predicted that 39 % of the audience would express an interest in seeing one of its forthcoming television shows. The network ran commercials for these shows during the Super Bowl. The day after the Super Bowl, and Advertising Group sampled 105 people who saw the commercials and found that 40 of them said they would watch one of the television shows.

Toyota company prides themselves on customer service. they have been trying to determine exactly how long it takes, from start to finish, to buy a car at their dealerships. they have determined that the two parts of the transaction (showroom and service) follow the normal model. showroom has a mean time of 3.5 hours with a standard deviation of 1.5 hours. service has an average time of 2 hours with a standard deviation of 0.5 hours.

a) What is the mean and standard deviation of the difference between the showroom and service average waiting time.

b) What is the probability that it will take a customer longer during the service portion of the transaction.

c) Why does the standard deviation always increase when we add or subtract the means of two distributions.
