  • For some genetic mutations, it is thought that the frequency of the mutant gene in men increases linearly with age. If m1 is the frequency at age t1, and m2 is the frequency at age t2, then the yearly rate of increase is estimated by r = (m2 − m1)/(t2 − t1). In a polymerase chain reaction assay, the frequency in 20-year-old men was estimated to be 17.7 ± 1.7 per μgDNA, and the frequency in 40-year-old men was estimated to be 35.9 ± 5.8 per μg DNA. Assume that age is measured with negligible uncertainty.a) Estimate the yearly rate of increase, and find the uncertainty in the estimate.b) Find the relative uncertainty in the estimated rate of increase.
    Drinking This Much Coffee Each Day May Lead to Brain Shrinkage and Increase Dementia Risk More than 7 in 10 Americans drink coffee daily, averaging about three cups per day, according to the National Coffee Association. At that rate (and at the right time of day, AKA not too close to bedtime), coffee acts as a pick-me-up that offers a surprisingly wide range of health benefits. But new research published June 2021 in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience proves that—like with most things in life—there can be too much of a good thing. After diving into 8 to 12 years of data collected about the coffee habits of more than 398,000 adults enrolled in a British study, the Australian research team discovered that sipping more than six cups of coffee per day was associated with a 53% increased risk of dementia and a smaller brain volume. So while coffee can be good to give you a little energy buzz, it can be not so great for your brain health—if you consume it in large quantities. Those who…
    Should advertisers worry about people with digital video recorders (DVRs) fast-forwarding through their TV commercials? Recent studies by MillwardBrown and Innerscope Research indicate that when people are fast-forwarding through commercials they are actually still quite engaged and paying attention to the screen to see when the commercials end and when the show they were watching starts again. If a commercial goes by that the viewer has seen before, the impact of the commercial may be equivalent to viewing the commercial at normal speed. One study of DVR viewing behavior is described in the article "Engaging at Any Speed? Commercials Put to the Test."† For each person in a sample of adults, physical responses (such as respiratory rate and heart rate) were recorded while watching commercials at normal speed and while watching commercials at fast-forward speed. These responses were used to calculate an engagement score. Engagement scores ranged from 0 to 100 (higher values indicate…
  • By accident, Janae has been making decaffeinated coffee for her co-workers for the entire week. But some of her co-workers have claimed that the extra boost of caffeine has helped them focus on their work.What does the placebo effect mean in this specific situation? a.) The benefit is the result of the "control" (coffee, although decaffeinated) and not an effect of the "active ingredient" (caffeine). b.) The benefit is the result of the fact that the "treatment" (coffee, although decaffeinated) contains another "active ingredient" besides caffeine. c.) The benefit is due to the fact that the co-workers are given a "treatment" (coffee, although decaffeinated) and not an effect of the "active ingredient" (caffeine). d.) The co-workers get a benefit from the "treatment" (coffee, although decaffeinated) since they also drink coffee at the coffee shop across the street during breaks.
    Dentists are increasingly concerned about the growing trend of local school districts to grant soft drink companies exclusive rights to install soda pop machines in schools in return for money-usually millions-that goes directly into school coffers. According to a recent study by the National Soft Drink Association, 62% of schools nationally already have such contracts. This comes at a time when dentists are seeing an alarming increase in horribly decayed teeth and eroded enamel in the mouths of teenagers and young adults. With ready access to soft drinks, children tend to drink them all day. That, combined with no opportunity to brush, leads to disaster, dentists say. Suppose that 20 schools around the country are randomly selected and asked if they have a soft drink contract. Find the probability that the number of 'Yes" answers is A. exactly 8 B. at most 8 C. at least 4  D. between 4 and 12, inclusive
    You are recently promoted as the chief traffic management officer of a major city in the country. Based on recent data, you learned that one of the leading causes of road accidents is over speeding.              In your desire to minimize road accidents, you went out to observe how traffic management rules are implemented on the streets. Your attention was caught by a fast - moving car that seemed to be breaking the speed limit of 100 kilometers per hour(km/hr.), and so you followed it along the highway. After a short time, the driver of the car noticed you and started to slow down. Eventually, he stopped on the side of the road.            Supposed the speed of the car had been noted during this time and is modeled by the quadratic equation y = 3x² + 17x - 20, where y represents the speed of the car in km/hr. and x represents the number of minutes after you started following the car. How long did it take for the car to be under surveillance before it could finally stop on the side of…
  • The cuttlefish, a cephalopod and first cousin of the octopus, has the ability to camouflage to almost any natural sea environment instantaneously (within a few milliseconds). They are also able to camouflage to non-natural environments but not quite as quickly. A cognitive psychologist is interested in whether cuttles exhibit learning (by showing a reduction in reaction time) after repeated exposure to the same environment. Initially, 10 baby cuttlefish are individually placed in a tank with a checkerboard bottom and their reaction time (time to camouflage) is recorded. Over the next month the samecuttlefish are exposed to the same environment daily and at the end of the month each cuttlefish's reaction time is recorded again. The data are recorded in the table below.      Reaction Time (seconds) Subject Before After 1 58 41 2 48 45 3 54 40 4 56 42 5 55 48 6 55 41 7 43 32 8 51 44 9 62 38 10 35…
    According to a newspaper study of more than 1 million medical dispatches from 2007 to 2012, the 911 response time for medical aid varies dramatically across a city. Under national standards adopted by the city's fire department, rescuers are supposed to arrive within six minutes to almost all medical emergencies. But the newspaper analysis found that in affluent hillside communities of the city, firefighters failed to hit that mark nearly 85% of the time. The following data show the response times, in minutes, for 10 emergency calls in the Griffith Park neighborhood. 11.8 10.3 10.7 10.6 11.5 8.3 10.5 10.9 10.7 11.2 Based on this sample of ten response times, compute the descriptive statistics (in minutes) in parts (a) and (b) and then answer the questions in parts (c) and (d).

    The analysis of tooth shrinkage byC. Loring Brace and colleagues at the University of Michigan’s Museum of Anthropology indicates that human tooth size is continuingto decrease and that the evolutionary process has not yetcome to a halt. In northern Europeans, for example, tooth sizereduction now has a rate of 1% per 1000 years. What will be our descendants’ tooth size 20,000 years from now (as a percentage of our present tooth size)?
  • A medical research team conducted a study to test the effect of a cholesterol reducing medication. At the end of the study, the researcher found that out of the 4700 randomly selected subjects who took the medication, 301 died of heart diseases. Of the 4300 randomly selected subjects who took a placebo, 357 died of heart disease. At α = 0.01, can you conclude that the death rate due to heart disease is lower for the subjects who took the medication than those who took the placebo? d. Find the p-value and interpret its meaning? e. Decide whether to reject or fail to reject the null. f. Interpret the results in context of the claim. g. Make an inference of this claim using the Confidence Interval Method.
    Do Left-Handers Die Earlier? According to a study published in the Journal of the American Public Health Association, lefthanded people do not die at an earlier age than right-handed people, contrary to the conclusion of a highly publicized report done 2 years earlier. The investigation involved a 6-year study of 3800 people in East Boston older than age 65. Researchers at Harvard University and the National Institute of Aging found that the “lefties” and “righties” died at exactly the same rate. “There was no difference, period,” said Dr. J. Guralnik, an epidemiologist at the institute and one of the coauthors of the report.
    For 25 years, Arthur Reynolds and Judy Temple tracked more than 1,400 children who participated in a publicly funded early childhood development program beginning at age 3. They found that children who participated in the program showed higher levels of educational attainment, socioeconomic status, and job skills, as well as lower rates of substance abuse, felony arrest, and incarceration, than those who did not receive school-based early education. One possible theory for the success of this program is that improving school readiness improved the children's success in school. The improved success in school in turn improved their readiness for adulthood, resulting in increased job skills and socioeconomic status as well as lower rates of substance abuse. What is the independent and dependent variable?
