The given data is 2, 5, 0 and –1.
Population mean:
Formula:
μ = x N
Calculate the population mean is as follows:
μ = 2.5 + 5 + 0 1 4 = 6 4 = 1.5
Therefore, the value of population mean is 1.5.

A political pollster selects a random sample of 75 registered voters from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The city of Pittsburgh is in Allegheny County. The pollster is interested in determining if the distribution of political party preference among registered voters in this county differs between those who live in Pittsburgh and those who live in the suburbs. The responses are displayed in the table.

 

The pollster would like to know if these data provide convincing evidence of a relationship between residential status and political party in the population of all registered voters in Allegheny County. The random and 10% conditions are met, and this table of expected counts shows that all expected counts are at least 5.

Random variables X1,X2,...,Xn are independent and identically distributed. 0 is a parameter of their distribution.
If q(X,0)N(0,1) is a pivotal function for 0, explain how you would use this result to obtain a symmetrical 95% confidence interval for 0.

Suppose you are testing whether the lifetime of 4 different types of lightbulbs. You run 5 experiments each. You get a mean square error of MSE=1.75 and you reject the null hypothesis. The sample means you obtain for each lightbulb are below:
Type 1: 20
Type 2: 30
Type 3: 28
Type 4: 22
Which pairs are significantly different at the 5% significance level? Select all that apply.

Learning math The Core Plus Mathematics Project (CPMP) is an innovative approach to teaching Math- ematics that engages students in group investigations and mathematical modeling. After field tests in 36 high schools over a three-year period, researchers compared the performances of CPMP students with those taught using a traditional curriculum. In one test, students had to solve applied Algebra problems using calculators. Scores for 320 CPMP students were compared to those of a control group of 273 students in a traditional Math pro- gram. Computer software was used to create a confidence interval for the difference in mean scores. (Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 31, no. 3[2000]) Conf level: 95% Variable: Mu(CPMP) – Mu(Ctrl) Interval: (5.573, 11.427) a) What’s the margin of error for this confidence interval? b) If we had created a 98% CI, would the margin of error be larger or smaller?c) Explain what the calculated interval means in context. d) Does this result suggest that students who learn Mathematics with CPMP will have significantly higher mean scores in Algebra than those in traditional programs? Explain.

Heights and mid-parent heights are given for 18 college students. Draw a scatterplot for the data, using different symbols for males and females as instructed in part (b). Based on the scatterplot, would you say that the correlation between height and mid-parent height is higher for the females in the sample or for the males? Or are the correlation values about the same for males and females?
