Given information:
Given that the researcher believes that the stock market performance and the property market performance in Singapore are associated.
Correlation:
Correlation analysis is used to measure the strength of the association between variables. In other words, it can be said that correlation describes the linear associations between quantitative variables.
The two variables of interest are X = Stock market performance and Y = Property market performance.
The significance of association between the variables X and Y can be determined by testing the significance of correlation.
Test procedure:
The test procedure is as given below:
In order to test the hypothesis regarding the direction of relation between a paired set of n observations (xi, yi), a significance test for correlation is appropriate. Hence, the appropriate statistics is correlation.
Thus, the sampling distribution used in the given scenario is “Student’s t”.
Denote r as the sample correlation coefficient and ρ as the population correlation coefficient.
The null and alternate hypotheses are stated below:
Null hypothesis H 0 : H 0 : ρ = 0
That is, there exists no significant relationship between the variable’s stock market performance and property market performance.
Alternative hypothesis H 1 : H 1 : ρ 0
That is, there exists a significant relationship between the variable’s stock market performance and property market performance.
Test statistic:
The test statistic is obtained as given below:
t = r n 2 1 r 2 d f = n 2
Decision rule:
Denote t as test statistic value and ± t α 2 are the critical values.
Decision rule based on critical approach:
I f t t α 2  (or)  t t α 2 ,  then reject the null hypothesis  H 0 . I f t α 2 < t < t α 2 ,  then fail to reject the null hypothesis  H 0 .

The local school board has instituted a book rewards program intended to encourage third graders to read more, thereby increasing their scores on a standardized vocabulary test. Nationally, the average score on this exam among third graders is 98. A random sample of 223 local third graders participating in the program scored an average of 104 on the test with a standard deviation of 13.
Conduct a significance test with a=.05 to answer the research question: Is the program working to significantly increase local third graders' vocabulary scores?
STEP ONE
In step one of this significance test, do you have to have a "random sample" or "independent random samples"?
a) a random sample
b) independent random samples

The US government is interested in understanding what predicts death rates. They have a set of data that includes the number of deaths in each state, the number of deaths resulting from vehicle accidents (VEHICLE), the number of people dying from diabetes (DIABETES), the number of deaths related to the flu (FLU) and the number of homicide deaths (HOMICIDE).
Your run a regression to predict deaths and get the following output: 
At alpha=0.05, what is indicated by the significance F in this problem? 
A. The regression model does not significantly predict deaths. 
B. The regression model significantly predicts deaths. 
C. Two of the four independent variables significantly predict deaths. 
D. Three of the four independent variables significantly predict deaths.

Calculate the Pearson Correlation Coefficient for these two variables and b) test whether the correlation is significantly different from 0. Run the test at a 5% level of significance. Give each of the following for part b to receive full credit:
1) the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses;
2) the appropriate test;
3) the decision rule;
4) the calculation of the test statistic; and
5) your conclusion including a comparison to alpha or the critical value. You MUST show your work to receive full credit. Partial credit is available.

Mean vs. Median: When to Use?
I know the difference between the mean and the median.
- The mean of a set of numbers is the sum of all the numbers divided by the cardinality.
- The median of a set of numbers is the middle number, when the set is organized in ascending or descending order (and, when the set has an even cardinality, the mean of the middle two numbers).
It seems to me that they're often used interchangeably, both to give a sense of what's going on in same data.
Do they mean (pun intended) different things? When should one be used over the other?

A new cream that advertises 52% of women over the age of 50 will experience skin improvement from using their product. A study was conducted in which a sample of 170 women over the age of 50 used the new cream for 6 months. Of those 170 women, 76 of them reported skin improvement (as judged by a dermatologist). Is this evidence that the cream will improve the skin of less than 52 % of women over the age of 50? Perform a hypothesis test using the 0.05 level of significance.
Set up a null and alternate hypothesis.

Basically, I am having a hard time understanding the difference between the p-value, the significance level and the size of a test.
In doing questions about hypothesis testing, I am somehow able to get the right answers when asked to derive these quantities. But at the end of the day, it seems to me that all three of them represent the probability of rejecting the null hypothesis?
Any enlightenment would be much appreciated.
