## Exercise 27

Note: Chi-Square Test of a Single Variance; Not all classes cover this topic. From past experience, a statistics teacher has found that the average score on a midterm is 81 with a standard deviation of 5.2. This term, a class of 49 students had a standard deviation of 5 on the midterm. Do the data indicate that we should reject the teacher’s claim that the standard deviation is 5.2?

• B. No
• C. Not enough information given to solve the problem

B: No

## Exercise 28

 Number of employees x Number of bathrooms y 650 730 810 900 102 107 1150 40 50 54 61 82 110 121

## Exercise 29

Is the correlation between the number of employees and the number of bathrooms significant?

• A. Yes
• B. No
• C. Not enough information to answer question

B: No

## Exercise 30

The linear regression equation is:

A

## Exercise 33

64 backpackers were asked the number of days their latest backpacking trip was. The number of days is given in the table below:

 # of days Frequency 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 5 9 6 12 7 10 5 10

Conduct an appropriate test to determine if the distribution is uniform.

• A. The p–valuep–value is > 0.10. There is insufficient information to conclude that the distribution is not uniform.
• B. The p–valuep–value is < 0.01. There is sufficient information to conclude the distribution is not uniform.
• C. The p–valuep–value is between 0.01 and 0.10, but without alpha (α) there is not enough information
• D. There is no such test that can be conducted.

### Solution

A: The p–valuep–value is > 0.10. There is insufficient information to conclude that the distribution is not uniform.
