Answers (1)

Lenght of garden = 80 feet
width of garden = 35 feet
farmer would leki to keep a one foot boarder around the garden.
Lenght for planting vegetable=80-2=78 feet
width for planting vegetable=35-2=33 feet
Area for planting veletable=78*33=2574 square feet
Farmer divide the garden equally between tomatoes, peppers and cabbage. Therefore area for planting the tomatoes = \(\displaystyle\frac{{1}}{{3}}\cdot{2574}={858}\) square feet.
Hence 858 square feet can be used for the tomato planting

To determine whether caffeine consumption affects the ability to solve math problems, a researcher had one group solve math problems after taking a cup of caffeinated drink and another group solve math problems after taking a cup of water. The group who took the caffeinated drink completed 35 problems in one hour and the group that had water completed 20 problems in one hour. Assuming the number of problems solved is normally distributed in each group, what statistical test would be used to test the research hypothesis? Explain your answer.

Two basketball players are essentially equal in all respects. In particular, by jumping they can raise their centers of mass the same vertical distance, H. The first player,Arabella, wishes to shoot over the second player, Boris, and forthis she needs to be as high above Boris as possible. Arabella Jumps at time t=0, and Boris jumps later, at time \(\displaystyle{t}_{{R}}\)(his reaction time). Assume that Arabella has not yet reached her maximum height when Boris jumps.
Part A.) Find the vertical displacement \(\displaystyle{D}{\left({t}\right)}={h}_{{A}}{\left({t}\right)}-{h}_{{B}}{\left({t}\right)}\), as a function of time for the interval \(\displaystyle{0}{<}{t}{<}{t}_{{R}}\), where \(\displaystyle{h}_{{A}}{\left({t}\right)}\) is the height of the raised hands of Arabella, while \(\displaystyle{h}_{{B}}{\left({t}\right)}\) is the height of the raised hands of Boris. (Express thevertical displacement in terms of H,g,and t.)
Part B.) Find the vertical displacement D(t) between the raised hands of the two players for the time period after Boris has jumped (\(\displaystyle{t}{>}{t}_{{R}}\)) but before Arabella has landed. (Express youranswer in terms of t,\(\displaystyle{t}_{{R}}\), g,and H)
Part C.) What advice would you give Arabella To minimize the chance of her shot being blocked?

factor in determining the usefulness of an examination as a measure of demonstrated ability is the amount of spread that occurs in the grades. If the spread or variation of examination scores is very small, it usually means that the examination was either too hard or too easy. However, if the variance of scores is moderately large, then there is a definite difference in scores between "better," "average," and "poorer" students. A group of attorneys in a Midwest state has been given the task of making up this year's bar examination for the state. The examination has 500 total possible points, and from the history of past examinations, it is known that a standard deviation of around 60 points is desirable. Of course, too large or too small a standard deviation is not good. The attorneys want to test their examination to see how good it is. A preliminary version of the examination (with slight modifications to protect the integrity of the real examination) is given to a random sample of 20 newly graduated law students. Their scores give a sample standard deviation of 70 points. Using a 0.01 level of significance, test the claim that the population standard deviation for the new examination is 60 against the claim that the population standard deviation is different from 60.
(a) What is the level of significance?
State the null and alternate hypotheses.
\(H_{0}:\sigma=60,\ H_{1}:\sigma\ <\ 60H_{0}:\sigma\ >\ 60,\ H_{1}:\sigma=60H_{0}:\sigma=60,\ H_{1}:\sigma\ >\ 60H_{0}:\sigma=60,\ H_{1}:\sigma\ \neq\ 60\)
(b) Find the value of the chi-square statistic for the sample. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
What are the degrees of freedom?
What assumptions are you making about the original distribution?
We assume a binomial population distribution.We assume a exponential population distribution. We assume a normal population distribution.We assume a uniform population distribution.

Give a full and correct answer Why is it important that a sample be random and representative when conducting hypothesis testing? Representative Sample vs. Random Sample: An Overview Economists and researchers seek to reduce sampling bias to near negligible levels when employing statistical analysis. Three basic characteristics in a sample reduce the chances of sampling bias and allow economists to make more confident inferences about a general population from the results obtained from the sample analysis or study: * Such samples must be representative of the chosen population studied. * They must be randomly chosen, meaning that each member of the larger population has an equal chance of being chosen. * They must be large enough so as not to skew the results. The optimal size of the sample group depends on the precise degree of confidence required for making an inference. Representative sampling and random sampling are two techniques used to help ensure data is free of bias. These sampling techniques are not mutually exclusive and, in fact, they are often used in tandem to reduce the degree of sampling error in an analysis and allow for greater confidence in making statistical inferences from the sample in regard to the larger group. Representative Sample A representative sample is a group or set chosen from a larger statistical population or group of factors or instances that adequately replicates the larger group according to whatever characteristic or quality is under study. A representative sample parallels key variables and characteristics of the large society under examination. Some examples include sex, age, education level, socioeconomic status (SES), or marital status. A larger sample size reduced sampling error and increases the likelihood that the sample accurately reflects the target population. Random Sample A random sample is a group or set chosen from a larger population or group of factors of instances in a random manner that allows for each member of the larger group to have an equal chance of being chosen. A random sample is meant to be an unbiased representation of the larger population. It is considered a fair way to select a sample from a larger population since every member of the population has an equal chance of getting selected. Special Considerations: People collecting samples need to ensure that bias is minimized. Representative sampling is one of the key methods of achieving this because such samples replicate as closely as possible elements of the larger population under study. This alone, however, is not enough to make the sampling bias negligible. Combining the random sampling technique with the representative sampling method reduces bias further because no specific member of the representative population has a greater chance of selection into the sample than any other.
