Justification:
Observational Study: An observational study measures the values of a variable without influencing the values of response variables and explanatory variables. Thus, in observational study, researchers can observe the behaviors of the individuals without influencing the outcome of that study.
Designed experiment: In a designed experimental study, researchers allocate individuals to a certain group under study and change the values of an explanatory variable intentionally, after which, the values of the response variable for each group is recorded.
All the teeth are divided into four treatment groups where researchers can observe the behaviors of the individuals with an attempt of influencing the outcome of this study.
Thus, it is not an observational study.
All the teeth are divided into four groups. Each tooth is randomly assigned to one of four treatments: gum A, gum B, gum G, or saliva. Each tooth group is placed into a device that simulated a human chewing gum. There is an attempt to influence the individuals as the value of explanatory variable is influenced and controlled by-researthers under study.
Thus, the given study is a designed experiment.

Copperhead and Tiger Snakes. S. Fearn et al. compare two types of snakes in the article “Body Size and Trophic Divergence of Two Large Sympatric Elapic Snakes in Tasmania” (Australian Journal of Zoology, Vol. 60, No. 3, pp. 159-165). Tiger snakes and lowland copperheads are both large snakes confined to the cooler parts of Tasmania. The weights of the male lowland copperhead in Tasmania have a mean of 812.07 g and a standard deviation of 330.24 g; the weights of the male tiger snake in Tasmania have a mean of 743.65 g and a standard deviation of 336.36 g.
a. Determine the z-scores for both a male lowland copperhead snake and a male tiger snake whose weights are 850 g.
b. Under what conditions would it be reasonable to use z-scores to compare the relative standings of the weights of the two snakes?
c. Assuming that a comparison using z-scores is legitimate, relative to the other snakes of its type, which snake is heavier?

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
