Michelle is studying the relationship between the hours worked (per week) and time spent reading (per day) and has collected the data shown in the table. The line of best fit for the data is y=0.79x+98.8.
Hours Worked (per week) 30405060 Minutes Reading (per day) 75685852
(a) According to the line of best fit, the predicted number of minutes spent reading for a person who works 27 hours (per week) is 77.47.
(b) Is it reasonable to use this line of best fit to make the above prediction?
Select the correct answer below:
1.The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47 minutes, is unreliable but reasonable.
2.The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47 minutes, is reliable but unreasonable.
3.The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47 minutes, is both unreliable and unreasonable.
4.The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47 minutes, is both reliable and reasonable.

Step 1
It is given that the predicted number of minutes spent reading for a person who works 27 hours is 77.47.
Step 2
Correct answer:
The estimate, a predicted time of 77.47, is both reliable and reasonable.
Since, the value of hours worked and the predicted value of time spent for reading are very close to the variables “Hours worked” and “Minutes reading” respectively.

Turbid water is muddy or cloudy water. Sunlight is necessary for most life forms; thus turbid water is considered a threat to wetland ecosystems. Passive filtration systems are commonly used to reduce turbidity in wetlands. Suspended solids are measured in mg/l. Is there a relation between input and output turbidity for a passive filtration system and, if so, is it statistically significant? At a wetlands environment in Illinois, the inlet and outlet turbidity of a passive filtration system have been measured. A random sample of measurements are shown below. (Reference: EPA Wetland Case Studies.)
Reading 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
Inlet (mg/l) 59.1 25.7 70.5 71.0 37.6 43.5 13.1 24.2 16.7 49.1 67.6 31.7
Outlet (mg/l) 18.2 14.3 15.3 17.5 13.1 8.0 4.1 4.4 4.3 5.8 16.3 7.1
Use a 1% level of significance to test the claim that there is a monotone relationship (either way) between the ranks of the inlet readings and outlet readings.
(a) Rank-order the inlet readings using 1 as the largest data value. Also rank-order the outlet readings using 1 as the largest data value. Then construct a table of ranks to be used for a Spearman rank correlation test.

Solving a two-sample z-test for two population proportions is to be performed using the P-value approach.
The null hypothesis is H 0 : P 1 = P 2 and the alternative is H a : P 1 P 2 . Use the given sample data to find the P-value for the hypothesis test. Give an interpretation of the p-value.
n 1 = 200
n 2 = 100
x 1 = 11
x 2 = 8
I got a p-value of 0.4009 but I'm not sure how to interpret this p-value and what it means or if my result is correct.

How to interpret the imaginary part of an inverse fourier transform
The fourier transform of arbitrary real data can (usually will) result in complex data. If the real data represents samples in time, then the complex FT data represent frequencies with the magnitudes representing the amplitude and the phase angles representing the phase.
If I perform some arbitrary manipulation on the complex FT data prior to applying an inverse fourier transform, the result of the IFT can also be complex. My question is, how do I interpret the imaginary part of the IFT result? My guess is that a complex IFT result is non-physical, and that this must imply that my original arbitrary manipulation was also therefore non-physical.
Is this correct? If so, are there equations which describe whether such a manipulation would be non-physical.

Why are zeros/roots (real) solutions to an equation of an n-degree polynomial?
I can't really put a proper title on this one, but I seem to be missing one crucial point. Why do roots of a function like f ( x ) = a x 2 + b x + c provide the solutions when f ( x ) = 0. What does that y=0 mean for the solutions, the intercept at the x axis? Why aren't the solutions at f ( x ) = 403045 or some other arbitrary n?
What makes the x-intercept special?

How to interpret data from Mann-Whitney U Test
So I am doing a research project and I was told to do the Mann Whitney U Test. The research is examining male and female work experiences by them ranking statements from 1-6 (1 being strongly agree and 7 being strongly disagree). The goal is to see if their is a difference in work experience between the two groups. Using an online calculator these were my results: Key: 1st group/2nd group
Variable: Female/Male Observations: 720/936
Mean: 3.099/3.042 SD: 1.715/1.668
Mann-Whitney test / Two-tailed test:
U 341978.5
U (standardized) 0.532
Expected value 336960
Variance (U) 89023289.87
p-value (Two-tailed) 0.595
alpha 0.05
So I have all this great data. The first part makes sense to me but the data in the second part I don't know how to read/analyze. Can somebody explain. Thank you!
