1.            True or False. Justify for full credit.
 
(a) If P(A) = 0.4, P(B) = 0.5, and A and B are independent, then P(A AND B) = 0.9.
 
(b) If the variance of a data set is 0, then all the observations in this data set must be zero.
 
(c) The mean is always equal to the median for a normal distribution.
 
(d) A 95% confidence interval is wider than a 90% confidence interval of the same parameter.
 
(e) In a two-tailed test, the value of the test statistic is 2. The test statistic follows a
 
distribution with the distribution curve shown below. If we know the shaded area is 0.03,
 
then we have sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis at 0.05 level of significance.

(ii)          linear regression
 
(iii)                ANOVA

(a)          Provide a written description of the complement event of (S OR F).
 
(b)          What is the probability of complement event of (S OR F)?
 

(a)          What is the probability that the sum of the two dice is 8 given that the first one is a multiple of
 
3? Show all work. Just the answer, without supporting work, will receive no credit.
 
(b)          Are event A and event B independent? Explain.

Assume Mimi wants to use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim.
 
(a)          Identify the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis.
 
(b)          Determine the test statistic. Show all work; writing the correct test statistic, without supporting
 
work,will receive no credit.
 
(c)          Determine the P-value for this test. Show all work; writing the correct P-value, without
 
supportingwork, will receive no credit.
 
(d)          Is there sufficient evidence to support the claim that banana is the favorite fruit for more than
 
80% of the adults? Explain.
 

Assume we want to use a 0.10 significance level to test the claim.
 
(a)          Identify the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis.
 
(b)          Determine the test statistic. Show all work; writing the correct test statistic, without supporting
 
work,will receive no credit.
 
(c)          Determine the P-value for this test. Show all work; writing the correct P-value, without
 
supportingwork, will receive no credit.
