ANSWERED ### In a science fair​ project, Emily conducted an experiment in which she tested professional touch therapists to see if they could sense her energy field. She flipped a coin to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, and then she asked the therapists to identify the selected hand by placing their hand just under​ Emily's hand without seeing it and without touching it. Among 358 ​trials, the touch therapists were correct 172 times. Complete parts​ (a) through​ (d). a) Given that Emily used a coin toss to select either her right hand or her left​ hand, what proportion of correct responses would be expected if the touch therapists made random​ guesses? ​(Type an integer or a decimal. Do not​ round.) b) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, what is the best point estimate of the​ therapists' success​ rate? ​(Round to three decimal places as​ needed.) c) Using​ Emily's sample​ results, construct a $$\displaystyle{90}​\%$$ confidence interval estimate of the proportion of correct responses made by touch therapists. Round to three decimal places as​ needed - ?$$\displaystyle{<}{p}{<}$$?

ANSWERED ### The article “Analysis of the Modeling Methodologies for Predicting the Strength of Air-Jet Spun Yarns” (Textile Res. J., 1997: 39–44) reported on a study carried out to relate yarn tenacity $$\displaystyle{\left({y},\ \in\ {\frac{{{g}}}{{{t}{e}{x}}}}\right)}$$ to yarn count $$\displaystyle{\left({x}_{{{1}}},\ \in\ {t}{e}{x}\right)}$$, percentage polyester $$\displaystyle{\left({x}_{{{2}}}\right)}$$, first nozzle pessure $$\displaystyle{\left({x}_{{{3}}},\ \in\ {\frac{{{k}{g}}}{{{c}{m}^{{{2}}}}}}\right)}$$, and second nozzle pressure $$\displaystyle{\left({x}_{{{4}}},\ \in\ {\frac{{{k}{g}}}{{{c}{m}^{{{2}}}}}}\right)}$$ The estimate of the constant term in the corresponding multiple regression equation was 6.121. The estimated coefficients for the four predictors were -0.082, 0.113, 0.256, and -0.219, respectively, and the coefficient of multiple determination was 0.946 a) Assuming that the sample size was $$\displaystyle{n}={25}$$, state and test the appropriate hypotheses to decide whether the fitted model specifies a useful linear relationship between the dependent variable and at least one of the four model predictors. b) Again using $$\displaystyle{n}={25}$$, calculate the value of adjusted $$\displaystyle{R}^{{{2}}}$$. c) Calculate a 99% confidence interval for true mean yarn tenacity when yarn count is 16.5, yarn contains 50% polyester, first nozzle pressure is 3, and second nozzle pressure is 5 if the estimated standard deviation of predicted tenacity under these circumstances is 0.350.
