Given info:
The data shows the employee tenure for a sample of 20 workers.
Justification:
The answer will vary. One of the possible answers is given below:
From the given data, it can be observed that the most of the employee tenures are less than the national median tenure of 4.6. Thus, it is possible that the given claim is true.
The questions that should ask about how the data were collected is “type of job for the employee, type of industries, and employee designation”.

Here’s an interesting challenge you can give to a friend. Hold a $1 (or larger!) bill by an upper corner. Have a friend prepare to pinch a lower corner, putting her fingers near but not touching the bill. Tell her to try to catch the bill when you drop it by simply closing her fingers. This seems like it should be easy, but it’s not. After she sees that you have released the bill, it will take her about 0.25 s to react and close her fingers-which is not fast enough to catch the bill. How much time does it take for the bill to fall beyond her grasp? The length of a bill is 16 cm.

A company is marketing a new product they say works better than the traditional test tube. There is so much interest in the product that 30 different labs around the world are testing the claim that this product is actually better. If each study uses an alpha level (alpha) of .10, and if the null hypothesis is true (that the test tube isn't any better that the traditional one), how many of the hypothesis tests would we expect to incorrectly find statistical significance (that is, conclude that the new test tube is better, when it actually isn't)?

If a report states that certain data were used to reject a given hypothesis, would it be a good idea to know what type of test (one-tailed or two-tailed) was used? Explain.

In there a relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests? The answer is yes. Let c be the level of confidence used to construct a confidence interval from sample data. Let * be the level of significance for a two-tailed hypothesis test. The following statement applies to hypothesis tests of the mean:
For a two-tailed hypothesis test with level of significance a and null hypothesis \(H_{0} : \mu = k\) we reject Ho whenever k falls outside the \(c = 1 — \alpha\) confidence interval for \(\mu\) based on the sample data. When A falls within the \(c = 1 — \alpha\) confidence interval. we do reject \(H_{0}\).
For a one-tailed hypothesis test with level of significance Ho : \(\mu = k\) and null hypothesiswe reject Ho whenever A falls outsidethe \(c = 1 — 2\alpha\) confidence interval for p based on the sample data. When A falls within the \(c = 1 — 2\alpha\) confidence interval, we do not reject \(H_{0}\).
A corresponding relationship between confidence intervals and two-tailed hypothesis tests is also valid for other parameters, such as p, \(\mu1 — \mu_2,\ and\ p_{1}, - p_{2}\).
(a) Consider the hypotheses \(H_{0} : \mu_{1} — \mu_{2} = O\ and\ H_{1} : \mu_{1} — \mu_{2} \neq\) Suppose a 95% confidence interval for \(\mu_{1} — \mu_{2}\) contains only positive numbers. Should you reject the null hypothesis when \(\alpha = 0.05\)? Why or why not?

Hypothesis Testing Review
For each problem below, simply identify the null and alternative hypotheses. Use appropriate notation/symbols. You do not have to run any hypothesis tests, although it's good practice and I'll post answers for all of them.
1) A simple random sample of 44 men from a normally distributed population results in a standard deviation of 10.7 beats per minute. The normal range of pulse rates of adults is typically given as 60 to 100 beats per minute. If the range rule of thumb is applied to that normal range, the result is a standard deviation of 10 beats per minute. Use the sample results with a 0.10 significance level to test the claim that pulse rates of men have a standard deviation equal to 10 beats per minute.
2) In 1997, a survey of 880 households showed that 145 of them use e-mail. Use those sample results to test the claim that more than 15% of households use e-mail. Use a 0.05 significance level.

The following data was collected about students in Mr. Rexinger's high school statistics class. Wearing jeansNot wearing jeans Has long hair(below chin)77 Does not have long hair513 a. Mr. Rexinger is playing a game with his students. He randomly chooses a mystery student from his class roster. If a player guesses the hair length of the mystery student correctly, the player gets an early-lunch pass. Madeline is the next player. To have the greatest chance of winning an early-lunch pass, should she guess that the student has long hair? Explain. b. Mr. Rexinger tells Madeline that the mystery student is wearing jeans. Would you advise Madeline to change her guess? Explain. c. In a previous course, you may have studied the association of two numerical variables by analyzing scatterplots and least squares regression lines. Associations between categorical events, like having long hair or wearing jeans, are determined by independence-if two events are independent, then they are not associated. Are the events {not having long hair} and {wearing jeans} associated for the students in Mr. Rexinger's class today? Explain the independence relationship using P(A given B) = P(A). d. Are the events {not having long hair} and {wearing jeans} mutually exclusive? Explain.
