p-value=?
Conclusion: (reject or do not reject $$H_0$$)
Does the test indicate an association between gender and preferred award? (yes/no)

Step 1
From the provided information,
The hypotheses can be constructed as:
$$H_0$$: There is no association between gender and preferred award.
$$H_1$$: There is association between gender and preferred award.
Assume the level of significance $$(\alpha) = 0.05$$
Step 2
The expected frequencies can be obtained as:
$$E_11=\frac{\text{Row total} \times \text{Column total}}{\text{Total}} =\frac{169 \times 31}{362}$$
$$=14.47$$
$$E_12=\frac{169 \times 149}{362}$$
$$=69.56$$
$$E_13=\frac{169 \times182}{362}$$
$$=84.97$$
$$E_21=\frac{193 \times 31}{362}$$
$$=16.53$$
$$E_22=\frac{193 \times 149}{362}$$
$$=79.44$$
$$E_23=\frac{193 \times 182}{362}$$
$$=97.03$$ Step 3 The value of chi square test statistic can be obtained as: $$x^2=\sum \frac{(O-E)^2}{E}$$
$$=\left[ \frac{(20-14.47)^2}{14.47}+\frac{(76-69.56)^2}{69.56}+\frac{(73-84.97)^2}{84.97}+\frac{(11-16.53)^2}{16.53}+\frac{(73-79.44)^2}{79.44}+\frac{(109-97.03)^2}{97.03}\right]$$
the chi square test statistic is 8.245
Step 4
The degree of freedom $$=(r-1) \cdot (c-1) = (2-1) \cdot (3-1) = 2$$ The p value of the test statistic with 2 degree of freedom from the chi square table is 0.0162 which is less than level of significance, therefore, the null hypothesis would reject and it can be concluded that there is sufficient evidence to support the claim that there is some association between gender and preferred award.
Yes, the test indicates an association between gender and preferred award.

A random sample of $$n_1 = 14$$ winter days in Denver gave a sample mean pollution index $$x_1 = 43$$.
Previous studies show that $$\sigma_1 = 19$$.
For Englewood (a suburb of Denver), a random sample of $$n_2 = 12$$ winter days gave a sample mean pollution index of $$x_2 = 37$$.
Previous studies show that $$\sigma_2 = 13$$.
Assume the pollution index is normally distributed in both Englewood and Denver.
(a) State the null and alternate hypotheses.
$$H_0:\mu_1=\mu_2.\mu_1>\mu_2$$
$$H_0:\mu_1<\mu_2.\mu_1=\mu_2$$
$$H_0:\mu_1=\mu_2.\mu_1<\mu_2$$
$$H_0:\mu_1=\mu_2.\mu_1\neq\mu_2$$
(b) What sampling distribution will you use? What assumptions are you making? NKS The Student's t. We assume that both population distributions are approximately normal with known standard deviations.
The standard normal. We assume that both population distributions are approximately normal with unknown standard deviations.
The standard normal. We assume that both population distributions are approximately normal with known standard deviations.
The Student's t. We assume that both population distributions are approximately normal with unknown standard deviations.
(c) What is the value of the sample test statistic? Compute the corresponding z or t value as appropriate.
(Test the difference $$\mu_1 - \mu_2$$. Round your answer to two decimal places.) NKS (d) Find (or estimate) the P-value. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
(e) Based on your answers in parts (i)−(iii), will you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis? Are the data statistically significant at level \alpha?
At the $$\alpha = 0.01$$ level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.
At the $$\alpha = 0.01$$ level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.
At the $$\alpha = 0.01$$ level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.
At the $$\alpha = 0.01$$ level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.
(f) Interpret your conclusion in the context of the application.
Reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that there is a difference in mean pollution index for Englewood and Denver.
Reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that there is a difference in mean pollution index for Englewood and Denver.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that there is a difference in mean pollution index for Englewood and Denver.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that there is a difference in mean pollution index for Englewood and Denver. (g) Find a 99% confidence interval for
$$\mu_1 - \mu_2$$.
(Round your answers to two decimal places.)
lower limit
upper limit
(h) Explain the meaning of the confidence interval in the context of the problem.
Because the interval contains only positive numbers, this indicates that at the 99% confidence level, the mean population pollution index for Englewood is greater than that of Denver.
Because the interval contains both positive and negative numbers, this indicates that at the 99% confidence level, we can not say that the mean population pollution index for Englewood is different than that of Denver.
Because the interval contains both positive and negative numbers, this indicates that at the 99% confidence level, the mean population pollution index for Englewood is greater than that of Denver.
Because the interval contains only negative numbers, this indicates that at the 99% confidence level, the mean population pollution index for Englewood is less than that of Denver. asked 2021-03-04
