Question 2 of 171.0 Points

Some defendants in criminal proceedings plead guilty and are sentenced without a trial, whereas others who plead innocent are subsequently found guilty and then are sentenced. In recent years, legal scholars have speculated as to whether sentences of those who plead guilty differ in severity from sentences for those who plead innocent and are subsequently judged guilty. Consider the data given below on defendants accused of robbery, all of whom, by the way, had previous prison records. At the .01 level of significance, do these data suggest that the proportion of all defendants in these circumstances who plead guilty and are sent to prison differs from the proportion who are sent to prison after pleading innocent and being found guilty?

 GuiltyNot Guilty

Number judged guiltyn1 = 191n2 = 64

Number sentenced to prisonx1 = 101x2 = 56

Sample proportion.529.875

 

A.No, because the test value -1.96 is inside the interval (-2.58, 2.58)

B.No, because the test value -4.94 is outside the interval (-1.96, 1.96)

C.Yes, because the test value 2.58 is inside the interval (-4.94, 4.94)

D.Yes, because the test value -4.94 is outside the interval (-2.58, 2.58)

Question 4 of 171.0 Points

An agent for a residential real estate company in a large city would like to be able to predict the monthly rental cost of apartments based on the size of the apartment. Data for a sample of 25 apartments in a particular neighborhood are provided in the worksheet Apartments in the Excel workbook Apartments.xlsx. 

Apartments.xlsx

At the .05 level of significance determine if the correlation between rental cost and apartment size is significant.

A.Yes, there is a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental cost and apartment size, because the sample correlation coefficient 0.85 exceeds 0.50.

B.Yes, there is a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental cost and apartment size, because the t-test value, 7.74, is greater than the critical value 1.96.

C.Yes, there is a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental cost and apartment size, because the p-value for this test is less than .0001.

D.No, there is not a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental cost and apartment size, because the sample correlation coefficient is less than .95.

Question 9 of 172.0 Points

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 field researcher is gathering data on the trunk diameters of mature pine and spruce trees in a certain area.  The following are the results of his random sampling.  Can he conclude, at the 0.10 level of significance, that the average trunk diameter of a pine tree is greater than the average diameter of a spruce tree?

 Pine treesSpruce trees

Sample size2535

Mean trunk diameter (cm)5548

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. What values for the intercept (a)  and slope (b) do you obtain?

Place your answers, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blanks provided.  Do not use any stray punctuation marks.  For example, 34.567 would be a legitimate entry. 

intercept (a) = 
slope(b) =

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

Based on your results, If direct labor hours (DLH) increases by one hour, the indirect labor expense (ILE), on average, increases by approximately how much?

Place your answer, rounded to 2 decimal places, in the blank.  Do not use any stray punctuation marks or a dollar sign.  For example, 34.56 would be a legitimate entry.

Are America's top chief executive officers (CEOs) really worth all that money? One way to answer this question is to look at the annual company percentage increase in revenue versus the CEO's annual percentage salary increase in that same company. Suppose that a random sample of companies yielded the following data: 

percent change for corporation151231228682

percent change for CEO617-41232-172



Do these data indicate that the population mean percentage increase in corporate revenue is greater than the population mean percentage increase in CEO salary? Use a 5% level of significance. What is the critical value that you would use to conduct this test of hypothesis? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 2.345 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 = .848, n2 = 21, s2 = .529. 

If you follow Bluman's advice and place the larger variance in the numerator when computing the test value, at the .05 level of significance, what is the critical value associated with this test of hypothesis? Place your answer, rounded to 2 decimal places, in the blank. For example, 3.45 would be a legitimate entry.

Researchers conducted an experiment to measure the effect of a drug on improving the quality of sleep as determined by how many more minutes of REM sleep were measured for each participant. One group of participants were given the experimental drug; the other (control) group was given a placebo. Does the evidence indicate that the drug improved the amount of REM sleep at a 0.01 level of significance? Answer each of the following parts.
