Project #1334 - STATS

1. Consider the following charts:

a. Which plot represents left and right handed people? 1

b. Which plot represent SAT scores?
2. Consider the following discrete probability distribution:

x Pr(x)

1. 0  0.25

2. 1  0.50

3. 2  0.25

Find the expected value of the random variable.

3. The lifetime of a brand of DVD player follows a normal distribution with a mean of 8 years and a standard deviation of 6 months. Find the probability that the lifetime is more than 7 years.

4. The manager of a bank would like to demonstrate that the waiting time in line is less than 6 minutes. He samples 100 customers and finds a sample mean of 5.46 minutes and the standard deviation is 2.47 minutes. Let α = .05.
a. Find the null and alternative hypothesis.

b. Find the test statistic.
c. Find the rejection region. d. Will you reject or fail to reject?

5. We now consider hourly temperature x against fuel consumption y. Here is the output:
