The range rule tells us that the standard deviation of a sample is approximately equal to one fourth of the range of the data.
In other words s = R r = 24 4 = 6

A study tested the claim that heights of Americans and heights of Austrians have different variances with s=7.48092 cm for Americans and 7.14756 cm for Austrians. The sample sizes are n1=145 and n2=157. When using the F test with these data, is it correct to reason that there is no need to check for normalcy because n1 is greater than 30, and n2 is greater than 30?

The accompanying two-way table was constructed using data in the article “Television Viewing and Physical Fitness in Adults” (Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 1990: 315–320). The author hoped to determine whether time spent watching television is associated with cardiovascular fitness. Subjects were asked about their television-viewing habits and were classified as physically fit if they scored in the excellent or very good category on a step test. We include MINITAB output from a chi-squared analysis. The four TV groups corresponded to different amounts of time per day spent watching TV (0, 1–2, 3–4, or 5 or more hours). The 168 individuals represented in the first column were those judged physically fit. Expected counts appear below observed counts, and MINITAB displays the contribution to (x2) from each cell.

Refer to the Journal of Applied Psychology (Jan. 2011) study of the determinants of task performance. In addition to x1= conscientiousness score and x2={1if highly complex job, 0 if not}, the researchers also used x3= emotional stability score, x4= organizational citizenship behavior score, and x5= counterproductive work behavior score to model y = task performance score. One of their concerns is the level of multicollinearity in the data. A matrix of correlations for all possible pairs of independent variables follows. Based on this information, do you detect a moderate or high level of multicollinearity? If so, what are your recommendations?

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
