Problem Set 5

Q1. Consider the following null hypothesis that the mean temperature in Dallas in April is 70℉.

Interpret the following hypothesis testing results. (30 Points)

H0: μ = 70

HA: μ ≠ 70

(a) Interpret the null hypothesis using your t-statistic. (10 Points)

(b) Interpret the null hypothesis using p-value. (10 Points)

(c) Interpret your confidence interval and test the null hypothesis using confidence interval. (10 Points)

Q4. Answer the following questions according to the table: (70 Points) attratio is worker’s attendance rate = actual days they show up at work days required for attendance.dis is a dummy variable indicating a worker is disabled or not: = {1 disabled 0 non − disabled age is worker’s age.

(a) Is it simple regression model or multiple regression model? (5 Points)

(b) Write down the regression equation. (12 Points)

(c) Write down the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis for regression coefficients. (18 Points)

Pr(T < t) = 0.2635 Pr(|T| > |t|) = 0.5271 Pr(T > t) = 0.7365

Ha: mean < 70 Ha: mean != 70 Ha: mean > 70

Ho: mean = 70 degrees of freedom = 29

mean = mean(temp) t = -0.6402
