#### Question Details

Hello,

May I please get some help at least with these two assignments?instead of 3 --only 2assisngments.?

Assignment 5A

graphs, tree diagrams, formulas, and so on that are difficult or

impossible to reproduce in word-processing programs, so you will

have to print the entire assignment and fill it out and mail it to

your tutor. As an alternative to mailing, you might be able to

photograph or scan your assignment and submit it through the

appropriate drop box. If you do, make sure the material you are

submitting is legible.

Question 1

A researcher is comparing the reaction times of 10-year-olds who

play video games and 10-year-olds who do not. Random samples

from each group provided the results shown below.

Assume that the reaction times for both populations are normally

distributed with the same population standard deviation.

a. Construct a 98% confidence interval for the difference

between the population means of reaction times.

b. Using a 2.5% significance level, can the researcher conclude

that the mean reaction time of players of video games is less

than the mean reaction time of non-players of video games?

Formulate and test the appropriate hypotheses. Use the

critical value approach.

Question 2

Is there any difference between the proportion of Americans who

wish they were rich and the proportion of Canadians who wish

they were rich? A random sample of 1,000 Americans showed that

550 wish they were rich, while a random sample of 500 Canadians

showed that 225 wished they were rich.

6 marks

a. Find a 97.5% confidence interval for the difference between

the population proportions who wish they were rich.

b. Test, at the 1% level of significance, whether the two

population proportions are significantly different. Formulate

and test the appropriate hypotheses. Use the critical value

approach.

Question 3

A motivational program was designed to increase the number of

hours each student who took it studied per week. Eight randomly

selected students were involved in the program. The table below

shows the number of hours each student studied per week before

the taking motivational program and after taking the program.

motivational program increased the average number of hours

students studied per week? Formulate and test the appropriate

hypotheses. Use the critical value approach.

Assume that the population of paired differences has a normal

distribution.

Question 5

A large company is interested in knowing whether there is any

relationship between a person?s age and that person?s opinion

about a new wage incentive plan. A random sample of 100

employees was selected and cross-classified as shown below.

Question 6

A random sample of 16 students showed that the variance in the

number of hours they spend studying for a final exam was 25

hours2.

a. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population

variance and standard deviation of hours spent studying.

Assume the population of hours spent studying is normally

distributed.

b. Test, at the 5% level of significance, whether the population

standard deviation of hours spent studying is less than 10. Use

the critical value approach.

Question 7

Three different brands of pain relief medication are available for

minor aches and pains. It is of interest to know whether the mean

time to relieve the pain differs from brand to brand. To find out,

twelve individuals with minor aches and pains were randomly

assigned to one of the three brands. The time to relieve the pain

(in minutes) for each individual is provided in the table below.

concluded, at the 2.5% level of significance, that not all mean

times to relieve pain are equal? Formulate and test the

appropriate hypotheses. Use the critical value approach.
