B. G. Cosmos,a scientist, believes that the probability is \frac{2}{5} that aliens from an advanced civilization on Planet X are trying to communicate

kuCAu 2021-09-19 Answered

B. G. Cosmos, a scientist, believes that the probability is 25 that aliens from an advanced civilization on Planet X are trying to communicate with us by sending high-frequency signals to Earth. By using sophisticated equipment, Cosmos hopes to pick up these signals. The manufacturer of the equipment, Trekee, Inc., claims that if aliens are indeed sending signals, the probability that the equipment will detect them is 35. However, if aliens are not sending signals, the probability that the equipment will seem to detect such signals is 110. If the equipment detects signals, what is the probability that aliens are actually sending them?

Let A be the event of aliens sending signals and R be the event that the signals are received. If the equipment detects signals, the probability that aliens are actually sending them is:
P(AR)=P(A)P(RA)P(A)P(RA)+P(A)P(RA)=25352535+35+110=45

Classify each of the studies as either descriptive or inferential. Explain your answers. In an article titled “Teaching and Assessing Information Literacy in a Geography Program” (Journal of Geography, Vol. 104, No. 1, pp. 17-23), Dr. M. Kimsey and S. Lynn Cameron reported results from an on-line assessment instrument given to senior geography students at one institution of higher learning. The results for level of performance of 22 senior geography majors in 2003 and 29 senior geography majors in 2004 are presented in the following table.

Identify each of the following statements as true or false in relation to confidence intervals (CIs). 
Note: 0.5 marks will be taken away for each incorrect answer. The minimum score is 0.

 

 

 

 TrueFalse
A 95% CI is a numerical interval within which we are 95% confident that the true mean μμ lies.  
A 95% CI is a numerical interval within which we are 95% confident that the sample mean x¯¯¯x¯ lies.  
The true mean μμ is always inside the corresponding confidence interval.  
For a sample size n=29n=29, the number of degrees of freedom is n=30n=30.  
If we repeat an experiment 100 times (with 100 different samples) and construct a 95% CI each time, then approximately 5 of those 100 CIs would notnot contain the true mean 𝜇.
