Textbook Question
Chapter 9.2, Problem 5BSC

In Exercises 5–20, assume that the two samples are independent simple random samples selected from normally distributed populations, and do not assume that the population standard deviations are equal. (Note: Answers in Appendix D include technology answers based on Formula 9-1 along with “Table” answers based on Table A-3 with df equal to the smaller of n1 − 1 and n2 − 1.)

5. Regular Coke and Diet Coke Data Set 26 “Cola Weights and Volumes” in Appendix B includes weights (lb) of the contents of cans of Diet Coke (n = 36, x ¯ = 0.78479 lb, s = 0.00439 lb) and of the contents of cans of regular Coke (n = 36, x ¯ = 0.81682 lb, s = 0.00751 lb).

a. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the contents of cans of Diet Coke have weights with a mean that is less than the mean for regular Coke.

b. Construct the confidence interval appropriate for the hypothesis test in part (a).

c. Can you explain why cans of Diet Coke would weigh less than cans of regular Coke?

In Exercises 13–20, determine whether the data are from a discrete or continuous data set. CHIS Among the subjects surveyed as part of the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), several subjects are randomly selected and their heights are recorded.
Heart rate during laughter. Laughter is often called “the best medicine,” since studies have shown that laughter can reduce muscle tension and increase oxygenation of the blood. In the International Journal of Obesity (Jan. 2007), researchers at Vanderbilt University investigated the physiological changes that accompany laughter. Ninety subjects (18–34 years old) watched film clips designed to evoke laughter. During the laughing period, the researchers measured the heart rate (beats per minute) of each subject, with the following summary results:  Mean = 73.5, Standard Deviation = 6. n=90 (we can treat this as a large sample and use z) It is well known that the mean resting heart rate of adults is 71 beats per minute. Based on the research on laughter and heart rate, we would expect subjects to have a higher heart beat rate while laughing.Construct 95% Confidence interval using z value. What is the lower bound of CI? a)  Calculate the value of the test statistic.(z*) b)  If…
Regression and Predictions. Exercises 13–28 use the same data sets as Exercises 13–28 in Section 10-1. In each case, find the regression equation, letting the first variable be the predictor (x) variable. Find the indicated predicted value by following the prediction procedure summarized in Figure 10-5 on page 493. Manatees Use the listed boat/manatee data. In a year not included in the data below, there were 970,000 registered pleasure boats in Florida. Find the best predicted number of manatee fatalities resulting from encounters with boats. Is the result reasonably close to 79, which was the actual number of manatee fatalities?
