Y = 10 + 4X

 

i)        Interpret the meaning of the Y intercept, b0.

 

ii) Interpret the meaning of the slope, b1

 

 

iii) Predict the mean value of Y for X =8

 

 

 

 

2.      College administrators are interested in determining if the number of hours students study affects the GPA of students. They sample 6 students and determine the number of hours of studied last month and their GPA. These data are presented in the table that follows.

 

Student            Hours Study(X)          GPA (Y)

 

      1                      1                                  4

2                      2                                  6

3.      If SSR = 75 and SST = 88, compute the coefficient of determination, r2, and interpret its meaning.

 

 

4.      A Professor at a Community College does not want its students to wait in line for service for too long. She estimated that the students currently have to wait an average of 4 minutes for service. Assume that the waiting times for all customers at this branch have a normal distribution with a mean of 8 minutes and a standard deviation of 2 minutes.

 

Find the probability that randomly selected customer will have to wait for less than 4 minutes?

Instructions: Show all steps:

1.      Draw the normal curve and indicate the mean, standard deviation, and the X bar scale

2.      Identify the area of interest (that is shade the area under the curve that you will compute the probability).

3.      Covert the X bar values in Z scores

4.      Look up the Z standardized table for the cumulative area(s).

5.      Now, make your decision ( that a customer will wait for less than 4 minutes)

10.  One thousand teachers were selected from a city’s large private college, and they were asked whether or not they have health coverage provided by their college. Below is the two-way contingency table showing health care coverage.

 

Have Health Coverage

 

Yes                  No                Total

 
 

 

 

                  Men                                         450                  150                  600

 

Women                                    300                  100                  400

 
 

 

 

                  Total                                        750                  250                  1000

 

Suppose a someone is selected at random from these 1000 teachers,

 

a)      Find the probability that this person is a woman

 

 

b)      What is the probability that a person selected is a woman and has health coverage

 

 

 

c)      What is the probability that a teacher has health coverage given that the teacher is a man

 

 

d)      What is the probability the teacher is  a woman given that she does not have health coverage

 

 

 

11.  A Motel owner wishes to sell his apartment. He claims that over the past 8 months, the average daily rent revenue was $200 with a standard deviation of $25. A sample of 30 days reveals daily revenue of $150.

 

 

If you use the significance level of α = .05, would you reject the null hypothesis? Show all steps!

 

Instructions:

1.      State the Hypothesis( Null and Alternative)

2.      Draw the normal distribution and identify the acceptance and rejection regions

3.      Compute the Z STAT value

4.      Compare your ZSTAT with the Z Tabled value.

5.      Make you decision
