Given:
The mathematics department at one university reports that the failure rate for college algebra is no more than 35% in any given semester. A group of students believes the rate is higher, and they decided to use a hypothesis test to see if they are correct. Based on the sample they obtain, they decided to reject the null hypothesis. If, in reality, the failure rate is 34%.
Definition:
Types of errors:
1. Rejecting a true null hypothesis is called a Type I error.
2. Failing to reject a false null hypothesis is called a Type II error.
Calculation:
Let us write the null and alternative hypothesis to identify the type of error.
The mathematics department at one university reports that the failure rate for college algebra is no more than 35% in any given semester.
A group of students believes the rate is higher, and they decided to use a hypothesis test.
Therefore the alternative hypothesis is Hα:p>0.35
The opposite is the null hypothesis, H0:p0.35
After performing the test, they decide to reject the null hypothesis.
Therefore the alternative hypothesis is accepted.
Itis given that in reality, the failure rate is 34%.
That is the null hypothesis is true.
Thus the students have rejected the true null hypothesis and so they have committed Type I error.
Final statement.
Yes,the students have commited Type I error.

For simple ones, like quadratic equations, I can usually find the minimum point and give a correct answer.
But take, for example:
f ( x ) = 3 2 x + 1 , x > 0
and
g ( x ) = 1 x + 2 , x > 0
I am so confused with the whole process of finding the ranges of functions, including those above as samples, that I can't even quite explain what or why.
Can someone please, in a very step-by-step process, detail exactly what steps you would take to get the ranges of the above functions? I tried substituting x-values (such as 0), and came up with f ( x ) > 3, but that was mostly guesswork -- also, f ( x ) > 3 is incorrect.
Also, is there an outline I can follow -- even for the thinking process, like check if A, check if B -- that would work every time?

Sometimes when solving very sparse equation systems
A x = b
with conjugate gradient using computers, if A is a very sparse matrix, it can be difficult to utilize the hardware computational power maximally
Does there exist some way to rewrite
A x = b  or  A T A x = A T b
to be able to utilize hardware better?
One idea I had is that often A 2 , A 3 et.c. are increasingly non-sparse. Maybe it would be possible to take multiple steps at once..?
One motivation why this should be possible is that the Krylov subspaces which the Conjugate Gradient investigates are precisely the powers of the matrix. A second motivation why this is possible is of course Caley Hamilton theorem
P ( A ) = 0 A 1 = P 2 ( A )
For some polynomial P 2 other than P.
