Step 1
Usually quantitative data are anything that can be expressed as a number, or quantified. Examples of quantitative data are scores on achievement tests, number of hours of study, or weight of a subject.
Whereas, qualitative data cannot be expressed as a number. It means the data that represent nominal scales such as gender, socieo economic status, and religious preference are usually considered to be qualitative data.
Step 2
Using the above definitions,
i)
Gender of students at a college
Qualitative data
Thus, it cannot be expressed as number.
ii)
Weight of babies at a hospital
Quantitative data
Thus, it can be expressed as number.
iii)
Colour of sweets in a box
Qualitative data
Thus, it cannot be expressed as number.
iv)
Number of students in a class
Quantitative data
Thus, it can be expressed as number.
v)
Colour of sweets in a box
Qualitative data
Thus, it cannot be expressed as number.

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.

The two-way table summarizes data on the gender and eye color of students in a college statistics class. Imagine choosing a student from the class at random. Define event A: student is male and event B: student has blue eyes.
\(\begin{array}{c|cc|c} &\text{Male}&\text{Female}&\text{Total}\\ \hline \text{Blue}&&&10\\ \text{Brown}&&&40\\ \hline \text{Total}&20&30&50 \end{array}\)
Copy and complete the two-way table so that events A and B are mutually exclusive.

Here is a sample of amounts of weight change (kg) of college students in their freshman year: 10, 7, 6, -7, where -7 represents a loss of 7 kg and positive values represent weight gained. Here are ten bootstrap samples: \(\displaystyle{\left\lbrace{10},{10},{10},{6}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace{10},-{7},{6},{10}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace{10},-{7},{7},{6}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace{7},-{7},{6},{10}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace{6},{6},{6},{7}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace{7},-{7},{7},-{7}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace{10},{7},-{7},{6}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace-{7},{7},-{7},{7}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace-{7},{6},-{7},{7}\right\rbrace},{\left\lbrace{7},{10},{10},{10}\right\rbrace}\). a) Using only the ten given bootstrap samples, construct an 80% confidence interval estimate of the mean weight change for the population. \(\displaystyle?{k}{g}{<}{m}{y}{<}?{k}{g}\)
