Question 1 of 17
1.0 Points
Q-Mart is interested in comparing its male and female customers. Q-Mart would like to know if the amount of money spent by its female charge customers differs, on average, from the amount spent by its male charge customers.

To answer this question, an analyst collected random samples of 25 female customers and 22 male customers. Based on these samples, on average, the 25 women charge customers spent $102.23 and the 22 men charge customers spent $86.46. Moreover, the sample standard deviation of the amount charged by the 25 women was $93.393, and the sample standard deviation of the amount charged by the 22 men was $59.695.

Using the procedure advocated by Bluman, at the 10% level of significance, is there sufficient evidence for Q-Mart to conclude that, on average, the amount spent by women charge customers differs from the amount spent by men charge customers.
A.Yes, the test value does not exceed the critical value
B.No, the p-value of this test is less than 0.10.
C.No, the test value does not exceed the critical value.
D.Yes, the p-value of this test is greater than 0.10 Reset Selection

Two teams of workers assemble automobile engines at a manufacturing plant in Michigan. A random sample of 145 assemblies from team 1 shows 15 unacceptable assemblies. A similar random sample of 125 assemblies from team 2 shows 8 unacceptable assemblies.

Is there sufficient evidence to conclude, at the 10% significance level, that the two teams differ with respect to their proportions of unacceptable assemblies?
A.Yes, since the p-value is greater than 0.10
B.No, since the test value does not exceed the critical value
C.No, since the p-value is less than 0.10
D.No, since the test value exceeds the critical value Reset Selection

Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), "E" or "e" (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.
Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where "a" and "b" need to have explicitly stated values.
For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not.

A survey of employees at a company finds that 32 of the 88 employees who drive to work were ever late during the past year, and 18 of the 64 employees who took public transportation were ever late during the past year. At α = 0.10, is there a difference between the proportion of employees who drove who were ever late and the proportion of employees who took public transportation who were ever late?

Find the test value for the difference in the proportion of employees who were ever late for work in the past year.

Answer: Round your answer to two decimal places.

What is your decision for this test?

1. The test value is greater than the critical value of 1.960.
2. The test value is less than the critical value of 1.645.
3. The test value is greater than the critical value of 1.282.
4. The test value is less than the critical value of 1.960.

Answer: Enter only a 1, 2, 3 or 4 for your answer.

The marketing manager of a large supermarket chain would like to determine the effect of shelf space (in feet) on the weekly sales of international food (in hundreds of dollars). A random sample of 12 equal –sized stores is selected, with the following results:

Store Shelf Space(X) Weekly Sales(Y)
1 10 2.0
2 10 2.6
3 10 1.8
4 15 2.3
5 15 2.8
6 15 3.0
7 20 2.7
8 20 3.1
9 20 3.2
10 25 3.0
11 25 3.3
12 25 3.5


Using the equation of the regression line for these data, predict the average weekly sales (in hundreds of dollars) of international food for stores with 13 feet of shelf space for international food.

Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places , in the blank. Do not use a dollar sign. For example, 2.345 would be a legitimate entry.

A company has observed that there is a linear relationship between indirect labor expense (ILE) , in dollars, and direct labor hours (DLH). Data for direct labor hours and indirect labor expense for 18 months are given in the file ILE_and_DLH.xlsx

Treating ILE as the response variable, use regression to fit a straight line to all 18 data points.

Approximately what percentage of the variation in indirect labor expenses is explained by the regression model you derived?

Place your answer, rounded to 1 decimal place, in the blank. Do not use any stray punctuation marks or a percentage sign. For example, 78.9 would be a legitimate entry.

An investor wants to compare the risks associated with two different stocks. One way to measure the risk of a given stock is to measure the variation in the stock’s daily price changes.

In an effort to test the claim that the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 1 is different from the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 2, the investor obtains a random sample of 21 daily price changes for stock 1 and 21 daily price changes for stock 2.

The summary statistics associated with these samples are: n1 = 21, s1 = .849, n2 = 21, s2 = .529.

If you follow Bluman's advice and place the larger variance in the numerator, what is the test value associated with this test of hypothesis? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 3.456 would be a legitimate entry.

Two teams of workers assemble automobile engines at a manufacturing plant in Michigan. A random sample of 145 assemblies from team 1 shows 15 unacceptable assemblies. A similar random sample of 125 assemblies from team 2 shows 8 unacceptable assemblies.

If you are interested in determining if there is sufficient evidence to conclude, at the 10% significance level, that the two teams differ with respect to their proportions of unacceptable assemblies, what is/are the critical value you would use to conduct such a test of hypothesis?

Place your answer, rounded to 2 decimal places, in the blank. If there are two critical values, place only the positive value in the blank. For example, 2.34 would be a legitimate entry.
