BUS 308 Week 5 Final Part I

You are the manager at a company and are asked to present a report on the year-to-date

performance of your division. What type of statistical information would you include in

your report? In particular, which descriptive statistics (mean, median, standard

deviation, etc.) do you think would best represent the main aspects of the performance of

your division? What types of graphical presentation (histogram, dot plot, stem-and-leaf,

bar chart, etc.) would you include? Explain your reasoning

Chebyshev Theorem

Discuss how the Empirical Rule works and how it relates to the bell curve as illustrated

in Figure 3.14 (a). Then, explain Chebyshevs Theorem and how it is different from the

Empirical Rule. Give a specific example of a population with which the Empirical Rule

might be most effective and one with which Chebyshevs Theorem might be most

effective. Respond to at least two of your classmates postings.

within ___ standard deviations of the mean.

9.Question : When we are choosing a random sample and we do not place chosen units

back into the population, we are

10.Question : An example of manipulation of graphical display used to distort reality is:

Relative Frequency. Conceptually we would expect the probability of newborn males and

females to be the same. However, census reports indicate that the ratios of males and

females in various countries do not conform to the theoretical prediction. What do you

think accounts for this variation? Can you think of other cases where the expected

probabilities do not quite agree with the empirical values?

Applications for Probability. In what situations might you use probability as a manager to

approach business-related problems? What are the advantages to using probability

concepts in business decisions? Are there any disadvantages or possible pitfalls to avoid

in using probability in business?

Unscientific Sampling. Consider question 7.45 from the text: A Milwaukee television

station, WITI-TV, conducted a telephone call-in survey asking whether viewers liked the

new newspaper, the Journal Sentinel. On April 26, 1995, Tim Cuprisin, a columnist for

the Journal Sentinel, wrote the following comment: WITI-TV (Channel 6) did one of those

pollswhich they admit are unscientificlast week and found that 388 viewers like the

new Journal Sentinel and 2,629 didnt like it. We did our own unscientific poll on

whether those Channel 6 surveys accurately reflect public opinion. The results: a full

Is Cuprisins comment justified?

Many articles present statistical data and list margins of error (for example, reports on

political opinion polls, growth or decline of the housing markets, manufacturing sectors,

etc.). Find one such article from a reliable source (such as EBSCO or Proquest) in the

online library that includes a construction of confidence intervals for the data studied,

and give a summary of the topic and the statistical results presented. In particular,

discuss whether there is enough information presented in the article to arrive at the

same conclusion as reported

distribution of sample means approaches a/an __________ distribution.

4.Question : As the sample size ________the variation of the sampling distribution of

___________.

5.Question : Assuming the same value of a, as the sample size increases, the value of

ta/2 approaches the value of Za/2.

6.Question : If the sampled population has mean 48 and standard deviation 16, then the

mean and the standard deviation for the sampling distribution of for n = 16 are

7.Question : The sampling distribution of x bar must be a normal distribution with a

mean 0 and standard deviation 1.

8.Question : As our sample standard deviation increases when all other parts of the

confidence interval stay the same, then the confidence interval will become:

9.Question : When the sample size and sample standard deviation remain the same, a

99% confidence interval for a population mean, will be _____ the 95% confidence

interval for .

10. Question : A manufacturing company measures the weight of boxes before shipping

them to the customers. If the box weights have a population mean and standard

deviation of 90 lbs and 24 lbs respectively, then, based on a sample size of 36 boxes, the

probability that the average weight of the boxes will be less than 84 lbs is

Give an example of a hypothesis test you could perform at work or at home. State what

the Null and the Alternative hypotheses would be in your test. Explain how you would

settle on a reasonable level of significance for your scenario. Also explain what the type I

and II errors would be if you reached the incorrect conclusion in your test.

Creating Hypotheses. Assume you are the manager of a paint manufacturing factory.

Your company has received complaints from customers that the containers hold less

than the amount printed on them. On the other hand, corporate management is

concerned that the containers hold more than the standard amount. You assign a

statistician to verify these claims. A sample of containers was selected and the volume of

paint in each container was measured. Assuming that the volume printed on each

container is 1 gallon, how would you formulate the null and alternative hypotheses to

test the customers claim? As a manager, what reasonable criteria will you use to set a

value for the level of significance to be used in the test? After answering this question,

what type of error would you suppose may result in that case?

reject H0 at level a of significance if and only if the p-value is:

2.Question : When carrying out a sample test (with known) of H0: = 10 vs. Ha: > 10

by using a rejection point, we reject Ho at level of significance a if and only if the

calculated test statistic is

3.Question : When using the chi-square goodness of fit test, if the value of the chi-square

statistic is large enough, we reject the null hypothesis.

4.Question : The actual counts in the cells of a contingency table are referred to as the

expected cell frequencies.

5.Question : For a hypothesis test about a population mean or proportion, if the level of

significance is less than the p-value, the null hypothesis is rejected.

6.Question : When we carry out a chi-square test for independence, the null hypothesis

states that the two relevant classifications

7.Question : The manager of the quality department for a tire manufacturing company

wants to study the average tensile strength of rubber used in making a certain brand of

radial tire. The population is normally distributed and the population standard deviation

is known. She uses a Z test to test the null hypothesis that the mean tensile strength is

less than or equal to 800 pounds per square inch. The calculated Z test Statistic is a

positive value that leads to a p-value of .067 for the test. If the significance level is .10,

the null hypothesis would be rejected.

8.Question : A type II error is failing to reject a false null hypothesis.

9.Question : For the chi-square goodness of fit test, the rejection point X2a is in

10.Question : If a null hypothesis is not rejected at a significance level of .05, it will

______ be rejected at a significance level of .01.

Linear Correlation. Do you think there is a correlation between CEO salaries and the

degree of success of a company? If you were to take a sample of companies with

comparable size, market capitalization, and product category, and plot CEO salaries

against the net profit of their respective companies, do you expect to find a linear

correlation between the two? Explain.

Visit the websites on Quality Control (QC) listed in the Required Websites for this week.

In addition, locate an article on the Internet or in the Library databases that describes

an example of the use of statistics in Quality Control. In your post, briefly define Quality

Control and explain its importance. Also, describe some of the most widely used tools in

the industry for measuring and controlling quality, emphasizing their relationship to

what you have encountered in this class. Finally, explain the example from your article of

statistics as applied in a Quality Control context.

1.Calculate the mean yearly value using the average gas prices by month found in

theFinal Project Data Set.

2.Using the years as your x-axis and the annual mean as your y-axis, create a

scatterplotand a linear regression line.

3.Answer the following questions using your scatterplot and linear regression line:

What is the equation of the linear regression line, in slope-intercept form?* Based

on the linear regression line,

Select a current price that you have seen or paid recently for gas. Is that price

within therange of the linear regression line or is it an outlier?

Prices

Imagine that you are a manager at a delivery service and you are creating a report

toproject the effects on your company of rising gas prices in the next ten years.

Using thepreceding statistical analysis as your basis and outside scholarly resources to

support yourclaims,

Write a 3 to 5 page paper interpreting the results from this perspective. Include

thefollowing considerations:

1. Introduce the project and its significance to the company.

2. Explain the statistical analysis that you completed in Part I. Be sure to explain

wherethe data came from, what analysis was done, and what the results were.

3. Give conclusions that you have drawn from the data. Consider the effects of your

gasprice predictions on the delivery business. Also consider whether or not you believe

yourpredicted gas prices are accurate. What could occur in the future that would change

yourlinear regression line and therefore your prediction?
