Textbook Question
Chapter 10.4, Problem 35E

In a test of the quality of two television commercials, each commercial was shown in a separate test area six times over a one-week period. The following week a telephone survey was conducted to identify individuals who had seen the commercials. Those individuals were asked to state the primary message in the commercials. The following results were recorded.

  Commercial A Commercial B
Number Who Saw Commercial 150 200
Number Who Recalled Message 63 60
  1. a. Use α = .05 and test the hypothesis that there is no difference in the recall proportions for the two commercials.
  2. b. Compute a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the recall proportions for the two populations.

In a study of a group of women science majors who remained in their profession and a group who left their profession within a few months of graduation, the researchers collected the data shown here on a self-esteem questionnaire. Leavers Stayers1 = 3.05 2 = 2.92σ1 = 0.71 σ2 = 0.71n1 = 100 n2 = 227At α = 0.05, can it be concluded that there is a difference in the self-esteem scores of the two groups? Use the P-value method.

  • A disgruntled employee of a prominent delivery company in Baltimore County is accused of adding water into the fuel tanks of a large fleet of delivery vehicles. The manager asked the guard who observed the act to walk the parking lot with him to identify a sample of vehicles closer to the guards' booth. Upon returning to his office, the manager figured that since all the vehicles were of the same color, same engine size, and were on an inventory purchased and delivered just about the same year when all the previously existing vehicles were sold away, the decision to include the entire fleet for testing prior to filing the police report. The vehicles inventory could be described as . . .
    Suppose a group of 800800 smokers (who all wanted to give up smoking) were randomly assigned to receive an antidepressant drug or a placebo for six weeks. Of the 500500 patients who received the antidepressant drug, 134134 were not smoking one year later. Of the 300300 patients who received the placebo, 5151 were not smoking one year later. Given the null hypothesis ?0:(?1−?2)=0H0:(p1−p2)=0 and the alternative hypothesis ??:(?1−?2)≠0Ha:(p1−p2)≠0, conduct a test to see if taking an antidepressant drug can help smokers stop smoking.
