An experiment designed to study the relationship between hypertension and cigarette smoking yielded the following data.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline Tension\ level & Non-smoker & Moderate\ smoker & Heavy\ smoker \\ \hline Hypertension & 20 & 38 & 28 \\ \hline No\ hypertension & 50 & 27 & 18 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
Test the hypothesis that whether or not an individual has hypertension is independent of how much that person smokes.

Under the null hypothesis of the independence of hypertension and smoking status, we have the following expected table (rounding off the expected frequencies)
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline Tension\ level & Non-smoker & Moderate\ smoker & Heavy\ smoker \\ \hline Hypertension & 33 & 31 & 22 \\ \hline No\ hypertension & 37 & 34 & 24 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
This gives the value of T to be 16.486, which, under the null, follows an asymptotic chi-squared distribution, with 2 degrees of freedom. This yields a p value of 0.00026, and hence we reject the null hypothesis.

In an experiment designed to study the effects of illumination level on task performance (“Performance of Complex Tasks Under Different Levels of Illumination,” J. Illuminating Eng., 1976: 235–242), subjects were required to insert a fine-tipped probe into the eyeholes of ten needles in rapid succession both for a low light level with a black background and a higher level with a white background. Each data value is the time (sec) required to complete the task.
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline Subject & (1) & (2) & (3) & (4) & (5) &(6) & (7) & (8) & (9) \\ \hline Black & 25.85 & 28.84 & 32.05 & 25.74 & 20.89 & 41.05 & 25.01 & 24.96 & 27.47 \\ \hline White & 18.28 & 20.84 & 22.96 & 19.68 & 19.509 & 24.98 & 16.61 & 16.07 & 24.59 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
Does the data indicate that the higher level of illumination yields a decrease of more than 5 sec in true average task completion time? Test the appropriate hypotheses using the P-value approach.

1)A rewiew of voted registration record in a small town yielded the dollowing data of the number of males and females registered as Democrat, Republican, or some other affilation:

\(\begin{array}{c} Gender \\ \hline Affilation & Male & Female \\ \hline Democrat & 300 & 600 \\ Republican & 500 & 300 \\ Other & 200 & 100 \\ \hline \end{array}\)

What proportion of all voters is male and registered as a Democrat? 2)A survey was conducted invocted involving 303 subject concerning their preferences with respect to the size of car thay would consider purchasing. The following table shows the count of the responses by gender of the respondents:

\(\begin{array}{c} Size\ of\ Car \\ \hline Gender & Small & Medium & lange & Total \\ \hline Female & 58 & 63 & 17 & 138 \\ Male & 79 & 61 & 25 & 165 \\ Total & 137 & 124 & 42 & 303 \\ \hline \end{array}\)

the data are to be summarized by constructing marginal distributions. In the marginal distributio for car size, the entry for mediums car is ?

Presenting data in the form of table. For the data set shown by the table, Solve,
a) Create a scatter plot for the data.
b) Use the scatter plot to determine whether an exponential function, a logarithmic function, or a linear function is the best choice for modeling the data. (If applicable, you will use your graphing utility to obtain these functions.)
\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \text{Intensity (wattd per}\ meter^{2}) & \text{Loudness Level (decibels)} \\ \hline 0.1\text{(loud thunder)} & 110 \\ \hline 1\text{(rock concert, 2 yd from speakers)} & 120 \\ \hline 10 \text{(jackhammer)} & 130 \\ \hline 100 \text{(jet take off, 40 yd away)} & 140 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
