Q11

1. In a factory down the road, it is claimed that accidents are distributed on workdays as follows: Monday: 25%, Tuesday: 15%, Wednesday: 15%, Thursday: 15%, Friday: 30%. Yesterday they did a study of observed accidents over the past few months and gathered this info: Out of 100 accidents, 22 occurred on Monday, 15 on a Tuesday, 15 on a Wednesday, 17 on a Thursday, and 31 on a Friday. They plan on doing a test at a 5% level of significance. What is the value of the test statistic?

2. At the local courthouse they are wondering about the number of absences during the work week. They think they pretty much occur with the same frequency, so they plan on testing that thought at a 2.5% significance level.. Out of 30 randomly selected absences there were 8 on Monday, 9 on Tuesday, 4 on Wednesday, 3 on Thursday, and 6 on Friday. Give the value of the test statistic that would be used for a test of this type.

3. There's this manager over at a huge department store in the mall on the other side of town that claims absences occur during weekdays with the same frequency. Test this claim at a 5% significance level if the following sample data have been compiled.

Weekday |
Mon |
Tue |
Wed |
Thur |
Fri |

Absences |
37 |
15 |
12 |
23 |
43 |

4. A sociologist wanted to determine whether there was a difference in the amount of time children aged 5-7 spent watching television each day. The following data was gathered(in minutes). What is the critical value if the sociologist wants to test the claim that children watch television pretty much the same amount each day of the week? Use ? = 0.05.

6. A national research firm reported that 14% of the people in the country describe their health as fair, 30% as good, 36% as very good, and 20% as excellent. A health professional in Chicago wanted to determine if people in Chicago had similar feelings toward their health. In a sample of 600 people in Chicago, 70 described their health as fair, 175 as good, 225 as very good, and 130 as excellent. Use a test to determine if these results are the same as the national report. (? = 0.01)

7. You roll a die 1800 times with the following chart showing how many times each number occurred. Use a significance level of 0.025 to test the claim that the die is fair (fair means that each side of the die would occur with the same frequency).

Number |

The mayor thinks accidents, in Brooklyn , occur with these frequencies: 10% Monday, 25% Tuesday, 15% Wednesday, 15% Thursday, and 35% Friday. Based on the data that was collected and is shown in this chart, give the test stat. (Use ? = .10)
