Question

Question;Question 1;A medical doctor claims that the proportion of female;patients with high blood-pressure is smaller than the proportion of male;patients with high blood-pressure. The doctor conducted a survey in his;practise. Out of the 100 female patients only 13 had high;bloodpressure and out of the 110 male patients, 33 had high bloodpressure.;1.1 Test the doctors? claim at a 5% level of significance.;Assume that the population proportions are equal.;1.2 Construct a 90% confidence interval for the difference;between the two population proportions.;1.3 Compute the p-value;Question 2;An experimenter is concerned that variability of responses;using two different experimental procedures may not be the same. He randomly;selects two samples of 16 and 14 responses from two normal populations and gets;the statistics: S 12 = 55 and S22 = 118 respectively. Do the sample variances;provide enough evidence at the 10% significance level to infer that the two;population variances;differ?;Question 1;1.

TABLE;10-12;The dean of a college is interested in the proportion of;graduates from his college who have a jobOFFER on graduation day. He is;particularly interested in seeing if there is a difference in this;proportion for accounting and economics majors. In a random;sample of 100 of each type of major at graduation, he found that 65 accounting;majors and 52 economics majors had job OFFERS.
