Explain:
Justification:
Explanatory variable: It is a type of independent variable, which can explain changes of the response variable. The researchers for a particular study of experiment manipulate an explanatory variable and there may be more than one explanatory variable. Lurking variable, confounding variable are the two types of explanatory variable.
Type of stain remover (gum or saliva) is an independent variable that is manipulated by researchers and it can explain the changes in the variables. There may be more than one explanatory variable. Thus, in the given study “Type of stain remover (gum or saliva)” is the explanatory variable.
Qualitative variable: A variable that is used for classification of individuals based on attributes or qualities or characteristic, are called categorical or qualitative variable.
Quantitative variable: A variable that provides numerical values of individual and arithmetic operations such as addition and subtraction produee meaningful sesults-are called quantitative variables.
In this problem, the variable is “Type of stain remover (gum or saliva)”. This variable denotes a quality or attributes (brand) and is used to classify the individuals according to their type of stain remover, even if numerical values are assigned to the chew levels, addition and subtraction (numerical measures) of these will not yield any meaningful results. Hence, “Type of stain remover (gum or saliva)” is a qualitative variable.

Do Left-Handers Die Earlier? According to a study published in the Journal of the American Public Health Association, lefthanded people do not die at an earlier age than right-handed people, contrary to the conclusion of a highly publicized report done 2 years earlier. The investigation involved a 6-year study of 3800 people in East Boston older than age 65. Researchers at Harvard University and the National Institute of Aging found that the “lefties” and “righties” died at exactly the same rate. “There was no difference, period,” said Dr. J. Guralnik, an epidemiologist at the institute and one of the coauthors of the report.

State whether the investigation in question is an observational study or a designed experiment. Justify your answer in each case.
The Salk Vaccine. In the 1940s and early 1950s, the public was greatly concerned about polio. In an attempt to prevent this disease, Jonas Salk of the University of Pittsburgh developed a polio vaccine. In a test of the vaccine’s efficacy, involving nearly 2 million grade-school children, half of the children received the Salk vaccine, the other half received a placebo, in this case an injection of salt dissolved in water. Neither the children nor the doctors performing the diagnoses knew which children belonged to which group, but an evaluation center did. The center found that the incidence of polio was far less among the children inoculated with the Salk vaccine. From that information, the researchers concluded that the vaccine would be effective in preventing polio for all U.S. school children, consequently, it was made available for general use.
