The table below shows the number of people for three different race groups who were shot by police that were either armed or unarmed. These values are very close to the exact numbers. They have been changed slightly for each student to get a unique problem.

Suspect was Armed:

Black - 543

White - 1176

Hispanic - 378

Total - 2097

Suspect was unarmed:

Black - 60

White - 67

Hispanic - 38

Total - 165

Total:

Black - 603

White - 1243

Hispanic - 416

Total - 2262

Give your answer as a decimal to at least three decimal places.

a) What percent are Black?

b) What percent are Unarmed?

c) In order for two variables to be Independent of each other, the P \((A and B) = P(A) \cdot P(B) P(A and B) = P(A) \cdot P(B).\)

This just means that the percentage of times that both things happen equals the individual percentages multiplied together (Only if they are Independent of each other).

Therefore, if a person's race is independent of whether they were killed being unarmed then the percentage of black people that are killed while being unarmed should equal the percentage of blacks times the percentage of Unarmed. Let's check this. Multiply your answer to part a (percentage of blacks) by your answer to part b (percentage of unarmed).

Remember, the previous answer is only correct if the variables are Independent.

d) Now let's get the real percent that are Black and Unarmed by using the table?

If answer c is "significantly different" than answer d, then that means that there could be a different percentage of unarmed people being shot based on race. We will check this out later in the course.

Let's compare the percentage of unarmed shot for each race.

e) What percent are White and Unarmed?

f) What percent are Hispanic and Unarmed?

If you compare answers d, e and f it shows the highest percentage of unarmed people being shot is most likely white.

Why is that?

This is because there are more white people in the United States than any other race and therefore there are likely to be more white people in the table. Since there are more white people in the table, there most likely would be more white and unarmed people shot by police than any other race. This pulls the percentage of white and unarmed up. In addition, there most likely would be more white and armed shot by police. All the percentages for white people would be higher, because there are more white people. For example, the table contains very few Hispanic people, and the percentage of people in the table that were Hispanic and unarmed is the lowest percentage.

Think of it this way. If you went to a college that was 90% female and 10% male, then females would most likely have the highest percentage of A grades. They would also most likely have the highest percentage of B, C, D and F grades

The correct way to compare is "conditional probability". Conditional probability is getting the probability of something happening, given we are dealing with just the people in a particular group.

g) What percent of blacks shot and killed by police were unarmed?

h) What percent of whites shot and killed by police were unarmed?

i) What percent of Hispanics shot and killed by police were unarmed?

You can see by the answers to part g and h, that the percentage of blacks that were unarmed and killed by police is approximately twice that of whites that were unarmed and killed by police.

j) Why do you believe this is happening?

Do a search on the internet for reasons why blacks are more likely to be killed by police. Read a few articles on the topic. Write your response using the articles as references. Give the websites used in your response. Your answer should be several sentences long with at least one website listed. This part of this problem will be graded after the due date.

Is statistical inference intuitive to babies? In other words, are babies able to generalize from sample to population? In this study,1 8-month-old infants watched someone draw a sample of five balls from an opaque box. Each sample consisted of four balls of one color (red or white) and one ball of the other color. After observing the sample, the side of the box was lifted so the infants could see all of the balls inside (the population). Some boxes had an “expected” population, with balls in the same color proportions as the sample, while other boxes had an “unexpected” population, with balls in the opposite color proportion from the sample. Babies looked at the unexpected populations for an average of 9.9 seconds (sd = 4.5 seconds) and the expected populations for an average of 7.5 seconds (sd = 4.2 seconds). The sample size in each group was 20, and you may assume the data in each group are reasonably normally distributed. Is this convincing evidence that babies look longer at the unexpected population, suggesting that they make inferences about the population from the sample?
Let group 1 and group 2 be the time spent looking at the unexpected and expected populations, respectively.
A) Calculate the relevant sample statistic.

A tow truck pulls a car that is stuck in the mud, with a force of 2500 N as in Fig P5.27 The tow cable is under tension and therefor pulls downward and to the left on the pin at its upper end. The light pin is held in equilibrium by forces exerted by the two bars A and B. Each bar is a strut that is, each is a bar whose weight is small compared to the forces it exerts, and which exerts forces only through hinge pins at its ends. Each strut exerts a force directed parallel to its length. Determine the force of tension or compression in each strut. Proceed as follows Make a guess as to which way (pushing or pulling ) each force acts on the top pin Draw a free-body diagram of the pin. Use the condition for equilibrium of the pin to translate the free-body diagram into equations. From the equations calculate the forces exerted by struts A and B. If you obtain a positive answer, you correctly guessed the direction of the force. A negative answer means the direction should be reversed, but the absolute value correction should be reversed, but the absolute value correctly gives the magnitude of the force. If a strut pulls of a pin, it is in tension. If it pushes, the strut is in compression. Identify whether each strut is in tension or in compression.

In this exercise, you will use the correlation and regression applet to create scatter plots with 10 points that have a correlation close to 0.7. The lesson here is that many models may have the same correlation. Always compile your data before trusting correlations. (a) Stop after adding the first two points. What is the value of correlation?

(Enter your answer, rounded to four decimal places).

r=?

Why does correlation matter? Two is the minimum number of data points required to calculate the correlation. This value is the default correlation.

Because two points define a line, correlation always matters.

The mean of these two values always has this value.
