When we arrange the data in either increasing or decreasing order, the value of the middle term is called median.
Arranging these in increasing order so that 43 is middle term and missing term is x we get
25, x, 34, 43, 46, 77, 68
As we have three terms to the right of 43, we must have x somewhere to the left of 43.
Hence x<43

The ANOVA technique is designed to evaluate the null hypothesis that: a) Two populations have equal variance b) The mean of each treatment group is no different from the mean of the pooled population c) The mean square error (MSE) of the treatment group is larger than the overall MSE Write down the sum of squares decomposition and explain, briefly, in your own words how the sum of squares decomposition is used to conduct statistical inference in ANOVA.

Response rates to Web surveys are typically low, partially due to users starting but not finishing the survey. The factors that influence response rates were investigated in Survey Methodology (Dec. 2013). In a designed study, Web users were directed to participate in one of several surveys with different formats. For example, one format utilized a welcome screen witb a white background, and another format utilized a welcome screen with a red background. The "break-off rates," i.e., the proportion of sampled users who break off the survey before completing all questions, for the two formats are provided in the table.

 White Welcome ScreenRed Welcome ScreenNumber of Web users190183Number who break off survey4937Break-off rate0.2580.202

a) Verify the values of the break-off rates shown in the table.

b) The researchers theorize that the true break-off rate for Web users of the red welcome screen will be lower than the corresponding break-off Tate for users of the white welcome screen. Give the null and alternative hypotbesis for testing this theory.

c) Conduct the test, part b, at α=0.10. What do you conclude?

Which of the following are correct general statements about the Central Limit Theorem? Select all that apply.
1. It specifies the specific shape of the curve which approximates certain sampling distributions.
2. It’s name is often abbreviated by the three capital letters CLT
3. The word Central within its name, is meant to signify its role of central importance in the mathematics of probability and statistics.
4. The accuracy of the approximation it provides, improves when the trial success proportion p is closer to 50%.
5. It specifies the specific mean of the curve which approximates certain sampling distributions.
6. The accuracy of the approximation it provides, improves as the sample size n increases.
7. It specifies the specific standard deviation of the curve which approximates certain sampling distributions.
8. It is a special example of the particular type of theorems in mathematics, which are called limit theorems.

A study done by Dr. S. Friedler, a trained mime and a physician, found evidence that being entertained by live clowns immediately after in-vitro fertilization (IVF) may increase conception rates (Friedler et al, 2011) DOI: 10.1016. Yes, this real study was about whether watching 15 minutes of ‘medical clowning’ after an embryo transfer or IVF would affect the chance of a successful pregnancy. The 186 women in the study were randomly assigned to either clown or no clown condition. Please use these data to test whether pregnancy rates were independent of being entertained by a clown after IVF. Show your work and include each step in the hypothesis testing process.
