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.

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.

Step 1 Given: n= Sample size=9 Given claim: Mean difference is more than 5 The claim is either the null hypothesis or the alternative hypothesis. The null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis state the opposite of each other. The null hypothesis needs to contain the value mentioned in the claim. H0: μd=5
Hα: μ > 5 Let us first determine the differnce between each pair of data values: Population 1 Population 2Difference d25.8518.2325.8518.23=7.6228.8420.8428.8420.84=8.0032.0522.9632.0522.96=9.0925.7419.6825.7419.68=6.0620.8919.5020.8619.50=1.3941.0524.9841.0524.98=16.0725.0116.6125.0116.61=8.4024.9616.0724.9616.07=8.8927.4724.5927.4724.59=2.88 Step 2 Determine the sample mean of the differences. The mean is the sum of all values divided by the number of values. d= 7.62 + 8.00 +9.09 +  + 8.89 + 2.889  7.6 Determine the sample standard deviation of the differences: sd= (7.62  7.6)2 +  + (2.88  7.6)29  1  4.1779 Determine the value of the test statistic: t= d  dsdn= 7.6  54.17799  1.867 The P-value is the probability of obtaining the value of the test statistic, or a value more extreme, assuming that the null hypothesis is true. The P-value is the number (or interval) in the column title ofthe Students T distribution in the appendix containing the t-value in the row df=n  1=9  1=8:
0.025 < P < 0.05 If the P-value is less than the significance level, reject the null hypothesis. P < 0.05  Reject H0 There is sufficient evidence to support the claim that the higher level of illumination yields a decrease of more than 5 sec in true average task completion time.

The article “Anodic Fenton Treatment of Treflan MTF” describes a two-factor experiment designed to study the sorption of the herbicide trifluralin. The factors are the initial trifluralin concentration and the \(\displaystyle{F}{e}^{{{2}}}\ :\ {H}_{{{2}}}\ {O}_{{{2}}}\) delivery ratio. There were three replications for each treatment. The results presented in the following table are consistent with the means and standard deviations reported in the article. \(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \text{Initial Concentration (M)} & \text{Delivery Ratio} & \text{Sorption (%)} \\ \hline 15 & 1:0 & 10.90 \quad 8.47 \quad 12.43 \\ \hline 15 & 1:1 & 3.33 \quad 2.40 \quad 2.67 \\ \hline 15 & 1:5 & 0.79 \quad 0.76 \quad 0.84 \\ \hline 15 & 1:10 & 0.54 \quad 0.69 \quad 0.57 \\ \hline 40 & 1:0 & 6.84 \quad 7.68 \quad 6.79 \\ \hline 40 & 1:1 & 1.72 \quad 1.55 \quad 1.82 \\ \hline 40 & 1:5 & 0.68 \quad 0.83 \quad 0.89 \\ \hline 40 & 1:10 & 0.58 \quad 1.13 \quad 1.28 \\ \hline 100 & 1:0 & 6.61 \quad 6.66 \quad 7.43 \\ \hline 100 & 1:1 & 1.25 \quad 1.46 \quad 1.49 \\ \hline 100 & 1:5 & 1.17 \quad 1.27 \quad 1.16 \\ \hline 100 & 1:10 & 0.93 \quad 0.67 \quad 0.80\\ \hline \end{array}\) a) Estimate all main effects and interactions. b) Construct an ANOVA table. You may give ranges for the P-values. c) Is the additive model plausible? Provide the value of the test statistic, its null distribution, and the P-value.

State whether the investigation in question is an observational study or a designed experiment. Justify your answer in each case.In the 1940s and early 1950s, the public was greatly concerned about polio. In an attempt to prevent this disease, Jonas Salk of the University of Pittsburgh developed a polio vaccine. In a test of the vaccine’s efficacy, involving nearly 2 million grade-school children, half of the children received the Salk vaccine; the other half received a placebo, in this case an injection of salt dissolved in water. Neither the children nor the doctors performing the diagnoses knew which children belonged to which group, but an evaluation center did. The center found that the incidence of polio was far less among the children inoculated with the Salk vaccine. From that information, the researchers concluded that the vaccine would be effective in preventing polio for all U.S. school children; consequently, it was made available for general use.

In a study designed to determine whether babies have an innate sense of morality, babies were shown two puppet shows in a random order: one of them had a puppet being nice, and the other had a different puppet being mean. The babies were then given the opportunity to reach for either the nice puppet or the mean puppet, and the researchers recorded which puppet the babies reached for. Suppose that out of 23 babies in the study, 15 of them reached for the nice puppet. Using the distribution you picked and observed 15 out of 23 babies reaching for the nice puppet, what conclusion should be drawn, and why?

Prove that the reduced row echelon forms of the matrices(1 1 4 8 0 1 11 2 3 9 0 5 20 2 2 2 1 14 31 4 1 11 0 13 4) (0 3 3 1 50 1 1 0 00 2 2 0 3)

are the two matrices. 

The point of the reduced row echelon form is that the corresponding system of linear equations is in a particularly simple form, from which the solutions to the system AX=C in (4) can be determined immediately.
