Iron is very important for babies' growth. A common belief is that breastfeeding will help the baby to get more iron than formula feeding. To justify the belief, a study followed 2 groups of babies from born to 6 months. With one group babies are breast fed, and the other group are formula fed without iron supplements. Data below shows iron levels of those two groups of babies.

(1) There are two groups we need to compare for the study: Breast-Fed and Formula- Fed. Are those two groups dependent or independent? Based on your answer, what inference procedure should we apply for this research?

(2) Please perform the inference you decided in (1), and make sure to follow the 5-step procedure for any hypothesis test.

(3) Based on your conclusion in (2), what kind of error could you make? Explain the type of error using the context words for this research

1. The groups are independent so the independent samples t-test should be followed. 2. The hypothesis being tested is: H0:μ1=μ2

The p-value is 0.0441. Since the p-value (0.0441) is less than the significance level (0.05), we can reject the null hypothesis. Therefore, we can conclude that H0:μ1=μ2 3. Type I error could have been made since the null hypothesis is rejected.

Nonisomorph groups of order 2002
While searching for non-isomorph subgroups of order 2002 I just encountered something, which I want to understand. Obviously I looked for abelian subgroups first and found 2002 = 2 2 503 so we have the groups
Z / 2 2 Z × Z / 503 Z , Z / 2 Z × Z / 2 Z × Z / 503 Z
Now I want to understand why those two are not isomorph. I know that for two groups Z / n Z × Z / m Z Z / ( n m ) Z it has to hold that gcd ( n , m ) = 1. But I don't understand how we can compare Groups written as two products with groups written as three products as above, how does that work? And I think that goes in the same direction: How is it then at the same time that
Z / 4 Z × Z / 503 Z Z / 2012 Z Z / 2 Z × Z / 2 Z × Z / 503 Z Z / 2 Z × Z / 1006 Z
because gcd ( 4 , 2012 ) 1 , gcd ( 2 , 2 ) 1 , gcd ( 503 , 1006 ) 1. I don't understand the difference to the first comparison.

b. Find the standard error for comparing the means. What factor causes the standard error to be small compared to the sample standard deviations for the two​ groups? The cause the standard error to be small compared to the sample standard deviations for the two groups.

c. Calculate the​ 95% confidence interval comparing the population means for women Interpret the result including the relevance of 0 being within the interval or not. The​ 95% confidence interval for ​(μWμM) is: (Round to two decimal places as​ needed.) The values in the​ 95% confidence interval are less than 0, are greater than 0, include 0, which implies that the population mean for women could be the same as is less than is greater than the population mean for men.

d. State the assumptions upon which the interval in part c is based. Upon which assumptions below is the interval​ based? Select all that apply.

A.The standard deviations of the two populations are approximately equal.

B.The population distribution for each group is approximately normal.

C.The samples from the two groups are independent.

Suppose you took random samples from three distinct age groups. Through a survey, you determined how many respondents from each age group preferred to get news from T.V., newspapers, the Internet, or another source (respondents could select only one mode). What type of test would be appropriate to determine if there is sufficient statistical evidence to claim that the proportions of each age group preferring the different modes of obtaining news are not the same? Select from tests of independence, homogeneity, and goodness-of-fit.
Since we are interested in proportions, the test for homogeneity is appropriate. Since we are determining if the current distribution fits the previous distribution of responses, the goodness-of-fit test is appropriate.
Since we can claim all the variables are independent, the test of independence is appropriate.

As a vaccine scientist, you are required to test your newly developed vaccine in two different populations, populations Xand Y to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. There are 3190 subjects from database X and 6094 subjects from database Therefore, you must select a number of subjects from populations X and Y to form a group. The newly formed of group must consist of subjects from both populations without repetition. The maximum number of groups which can be formed is denoted as d.
(1) Use Euclidean algorithm to find d=GCD(X,Y).
2) Find the integers s and tsuch that d=sX+tY
3) With the answer obtained from a, what is the ratio of subjects selected from population X and Y,PX:PY.
4) Find Least Common Multiple for X and Y,LCM(X,Y).
