1.       

In the 1996 regular baseball season, the World Series Champion New York Yankees played 80 games at home and 82 games away. They won 49 of their home games and 43 of the games played away. We can consider these games as samples from potentially large populations of games played at home and away. How much advantage does the Yankee home field provide?

 

a. Find the proportion of wins for the home games. Do the same for the away games.

 

b. Find the standard error needed to compute a confidence interval for the difference in the proportions.

 

c. Compute a 90% confidence interval for the difference between the probability that the Yankees win at home and the probability that they win when on the road. Are you convinced that the 1996 Yankees were more likely to win at home?

The state agriculture department asked random samples of Indiana farmers in each county whether they favored a mandatory corn check off program to pay for corn product marketing and research. In Tippecanoe County, 263 farmers were in favor of the program and 252 were not. In neighboring Benton County, 260 were in favor and 377 were not.

 

a. Find the proportions of farmers in favor of the program in each of the two counties.

 

b. Compute a 95% confidence interval for the difference between the proportions of farmers favoring the program in Tippecanoe County and in Benton County. Do you think opinions differed in the two counties?

A study of chromosome abnormalities and criminality examined data on 4124 Danish males born in Copenhagen. The study used the penal registers maintained in the offices of the local police chiefs and classified each man as having a criminal record or not. Each was also classified as having the normal male XY chromosome pair or one of the abnormalities XYY or XXY. Of the 4096 men with normal chromosomes, 381 had criminal records, while 8 of the 28 men with chromosome abnormalities had criminal records. Some experts believe that chromosome abnormalities are associated with increased criminality. Do these data lend support to this belief? Report your analysis and draw a conclusion.

 

 

 

 

A recent study examined the association between high blood pressure and increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease. There were 2676 men with low blood pressure and 3338 men with high blood pressure. In the low-blood-pressure group, 21 men died from cardiovascular disease; in the high-blood-pressure group, 55 died.

 

a. Compute the 95% confidence interval for the difference in proportions.

 

b. Do the study data confirm that death rates are higher among men with high blood pressure? State hypotheses, carry out a significance test, and give your conclusions.

Sarah is running a chi-squared Goodness of Fit test to test whether the claimed proportions of candy colors in assorted bags of candy are different than claimed by the company. She takes a random sample of 300 pieces of candy from assorted bags. The company claims the following proportions of colors in assorted bags:

 

Green

Yellow

Red

Blue

0.2

0.3

There are four major blood types in humans: O, A, B, and AB. In a study conducted using blood specimens from the Blood Bank of Hawaii, individuals were classified according to blood type and ethnic group. The ethnic groups were Hawaiian, Hawaiian-white, Hawaiian-Chinese, and white. Assume that the blood bank specimens are random samples from the Hawaiian populations of these ethnic groups.

Here are the golf scores of 12 members of a college women’s golf team in two rounds of tournament play. (A golf score is the number of strokes required to complete the course, so that low scores are better.) To what extent may we predict the second round score from the first round score? The standard error of the slope is 0.23.

Can a pretest on mathematics skills predict success in a statistics course? The 55 students in an introductory statistics class took a pretest at the beginning of the semester. The least-squares regression line for predicting the score y on the final exam from the pretest score x was . The standard error of b was 0.38. Test the null hypothesis that there is no linear relationship between the pretest score and the score on the final exam against the two-sided alternative.
