a) Assumptions large sample inferences about the population difference between population means using two sample z-tests. We have three conditions as follows:

1) The two samples are independent.

2) Two samples are large samples that is \(\displaystyle{n}_{{1}}\ne{q}{30},{n}_{{2}}\ne{q}{30}\) Here, \(\displaystyle{n}_{{1}},{\quad\text{and}\quad}{n}_{{2}}\) are the sizes of the two samples.

b) Assumptions small sample inferences about the population difference between populations means using independent sample design We have three conditions as follows

1) Independent random samples

2) Both populations are normal

3) Both populations are having equal variances, that is \(\displaystyle{\sigma_{{{1}}}^{{{2}}}}={\sigma_{{{2}}}^{{{2}}}}\) Assumptions small sample inferences about the population difference between population means using two sample t-tests.

c) Assumptions required to small sample inferences about \(\displaystyle{\left(\mu_{{1}}-\mu_{{2}}\right)}\) using a paired difference design as follows:

1) Random sample of paired differences

2) Populations of difference are normal Here, \(\displaystyle{n}_{{d}}\) is the number of paired differences considered.

d) Assumptions required to large sample inferences about the differences \((p_1 - p_2)\) using two sample z-tests as follows:

1) Independent random samples

2) \(n_{1}p_{1}\Uparrow\neq 15\), and \(n_{1}q_{1}\Uparrow\neq 15\)

3) \(n_{2}p_{2}\Uparrow\neq 15\), and \(n_{2}q_{2}\Uparrow\neq 15\Uparrow\)

e) Assumptions required to inferences about the ratio \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{\sigma_{{{1}}}^{{{2}}}}}}{{{\sigma_{{{2}}}^{{{2}}}}}}}\) of two population variances using F test. The assumptions are same for either small or large samples.

1) Independent samples.

2) Both populations normal

A new thermostat has been engineered for the frozen food cases in large supermarkets. Both the old and new thermostats hold temperatures at an average of \(25^{\circ}F\). However, it is hoped that the new thermostat might be more dependable in the sense that it will hold temperatures closer to \(25^{\circ}F\). One frozen food case was equipped with the new thermostat, and a random sample of 21 temperature readings gave a sample variance of 5.1. Another similar frozen food case was equipped with the old thermostat, and a random sample of 19 temperature readings gave a sample variance of 12.8. Test the claim that the population variance of the old thermostat temperature readings is larger than that for the new thermostat. Use a \(5\%\) level of significance. How could your test conclusion relate to the question regarding the dependability of the temperature readings? (Let population 1 refer to data from the old thermostat.)
(a) What is the level of significance?
State the null and alternate hypotheses.
\(H0:?_{1}^{2}=?_{2}^{2},H1:?_{1}^{2}>?_{2}^{2}H0:?_{1}^{2}=?_{2}^{2},H1:?_{1}^{2}\neq?_{2}^{2}H0:?_{1}^{2}=?_{2}^{2},H1:?_{1}^{2}?_{2}^{2},H1:?_{1}^{2}=?_{2}^{2}\)
(b) Find the value of the sample F statistic. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
What are the degrees of freedom?
\(df_{N} = ?\)
\(df_{D} = ?\)
What assumptions are you making about the original distribution?
The populations follow independent normal distributions. We have random samples from each population.The populations follow dependent normal distributions. We have random samples from each population.The populations follow independent normal distributions.The populations follow independent chi-square distributions. We have random samples from each population.
(c) Find or estimate the P-value of the sample test statistic. (Round your answer to four decimal places.)
(d) Based on your answers in parts (a) to (c), will you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis?
At the ? = 0.05 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.At the ? = 0.05 level, we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant. At the ? = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not statistically significant.At the ? = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are statistically significant.
(e) Interpret your conclusion in the context of the application.
Reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings.Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is sufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings. Fail to reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings.Reject the null hypothesis, there is insufficient evidence that the population variance is larger in the old thermostat temperature readings.

Effect of alcoholic parents A study1 compared personality characteristics between 49 children of alcoholics and a control group of 49 children of nonalcoholics who were matched on age and gender. On a measure of well being, the 49 children of alcoholics had a mean of \(\displaystyle{26.1}{\left({s}={7.2}\right)}\) and the 49 subjects in the control group had a mean of \(\displaystyle{\left[{28.8}{\left({s}={6.4}\right)}\right]}\).

When σ is unknown and the sample size is \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), there are tow methods for computing confidence intervals for μμ. Method 1: Use the Student's t distribution with d.f. = n - 1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method. Method 2: When \(\displaystyle{n}\geq{30}\), use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σσ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σσ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student's t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n = 31, with sample mean x¯=45.2 and sample standard deviation s = 5.3. (c) Compare intervals for the two methods. Would you say that confidence intervals using a Student's t distribution are more conservative in the sense that they tend to be longer than intervals based on the standard normal distribution?
