a) The section describes the distribution for a difference between samples taken from the two distinct groups.
The given situation compares the proportion of students who use Windows-based PC to the proportion who use a Mac. That is, two proportions drawn from the same group is compared here. Thus, the methods of this section do not apply to this type of difference in proportions.
b) The section describes the distribution for a difference between samples taken from the two distinct groups.
The given situation compares the proportion of students who study abroad between those attending public universities and those at private universities. That is, two proportions drawn from from the different groups are compared here. Thus, the methods of this section apply to the given situation.
c) The section describes the distribution for a difference between samples taken from the two distinct groups.
The given situation compares the proportion of in-state students at a university to the proportion from outside the state. That is, two proportions drawn from the same group are compared here. Thus, the methods of this section do not apply to the given situation.
d) The section describes the distribution for a difference between samples taken from the two distinct groups.
The given situation compares the proportion of in-state students who get financial aid to the proportion from out-of-state students who get financial aid. That is, two proportions drawn from the different groups are compared here. Thus, the methods of this section apply to the given situation.

The owner of a large equipment rental company wants to make a rather quick estimate of the average number of days a piece of ditch-digging equipment is rented out per person per time. The company has records of all rentals, but the amount of time required to conduct an audit of all accounts would be prohibitive. The owner decides to take a random sample of rental invoices. Fourteen different rentals of ditch-diggers are selected randomly from the files, yielding the following data. She wants to use these data to construct a 99% confidence interval to estimate the average number of days that a ditch-digger is rented and assumes that the number of days per rental is normally distributed in the population. Use only the appropriate formula and/or statistical table in your textbook to answer this question. Report your answer to 2 decimal places, using conventional rounding rules.

Which of the following hypothesis tests would be appropriate, given the types of variables presented?
a. Chi-square test
