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 |
- a. Use α = .05 and test the hypothesis that there is no difference in the recall proportions for the two commercials.
- b. Compute a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the recall proportions for the two populations.

Results of the driving testGender First time Second timeMen 126 211Women 135 178a) Do these data suggest that there is a relationship between gender and the passing of their driver’s test from which the present sample was drawn? Let alpha=.05
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.
(c) 100 males and 100 females are asked a series of question to determine whether that are considered heavy drinkers or not.45 of males are considered heavy drinkers.56 of females are classified as heavy drinkers .execute a hypothesis test as to whether there is relationship between gender and drinking at alpha 0.05.

In a clinical study, a random sample of 540 participants agree to have their blood drawn, which is to be examined for the presence of antibodies against a certain contagious disease. It is found in 22% of the blood samples, which experimenters hope to extrapolate to the general population.
From this random sample, 10 participants' blood samples are selected at random. If X is the number of samples out of the 10 who have these antibodies, what can we say about X?
A. The sample size is not large enough for us to approximate X using a normal distribution
B.The expected value of X is 22
C. X can be approximated using a normal distribution in lieu of a binomial distribution
D. X has a sampling distribution that is normal

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.

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.

Based on information from a previous study, r1 = 30 people out of a random sample of n1 = 107 adult Americans who did not attend college believe in extraterrestrials. However, out of a random sample of n2 = 107 adult Americans who did attend college, r2 = 46 claim that they believe in extraterrestrials. Does this indicate that the proportion of people who attended college and who believe in extraterrestrials is higher than the proportion who did not attend college? Use ? = 0.01.
