### A) Explain why the chi-square goodness-of-fit test is not an appropriate way to find out. B) What might you do instead of weighing the nuts in order to use a x2 test? Nuts A company says its premium mixture of nuts con- tains 10% Brazil nuts, 20% cashews, 20% almonds, and 10% hazelnuts, and the rest are peanuts. You buy a large can and separate the various kinds of nuts. Upon weigh- ing them, you find there are 112 grams of Brazil nuts, 183 grams of cashews, 207 grams of almonds, 71 grams of hazelnuts, and 446 grams of peanuts. You wonder whether your mix is significantly different from what the company advertises. Tammy Todd 2020-10-19

### Researchers carried out a survey of fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade students in Michigan. Students were asked whether good grades, athletic ability, or being popular was most important to them. This two-way table summarizes the survey data.   Suppose we select one of these students at random. What's the probability that: The student is a sixth grader or a student who rated good grades as important? FizeauV 2020-10-19

### In an experiment designed to study the effects of illumination level on task performance (“Performance of Complex Tasks Under Different Levels of Illumination,” J. Illuminating Eng., 1976: 235–242), subjects were required to insert a fine-tipped probe into the eyeholes of ten needles in rapid succession both for a low light level with a black background and a higher level with a white background. Each data value is the time (sec) required to complete the task. $\begin{array}{|cccccccccc|}\hline Subject& \left(1\right)& \left(2\right)& \left(3\right)& \left(4\right)& \left(5\right)& \left(6\right)& \left(7\right)& \left(8\right)& \left(9\right)\\ Black& 25.85& 28.84& 32.05& 25.74& 20.89& 41.05& 25.01& 24.96& 27.47\\ White& 18.28& 20.84& 22.96& 19.68& 19.509& 24.98& 16.61& 16.07& 24.59\\ \hline\end{array}$ Does the data indicate that the higher level of illumination yields a decrease of more than 5 sec in true average task completion time? Test the appropriate hypotheses using the P-value approach. ringearV 2020-10-19

### How is the distinction between qualitative and quantitative data in social research is essentially the distinction between numerical and nonnumerical data?

The problem with the majority of statistics and probability examples that you will encounter elsewhere is that they contain no analysis. As we collect solutions to the most popular questions related to statistics and probability, we believe that students require statistics and probability with applications answers because it is what can be determined as help with statistical data for various disciplines. Regardless of what statistical task you might be approaching, examples of quantitative data must be explored first to determine the objectives. See statistics and probability problems that are presented. As you will see statistics and probability questions must be complete to receive du
