Statistics Chapter 11 Homework Answers

AP Stats Chapter 11 Practice Test –Multiple Choice1. DDT is an insecticide that accumulates up the food chain. Predator birds can be contaminated with quite high levels of the chemical by eating many lightly contaminated prey. One effect of DDT upon birds is to inhibit the production of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase, which controls calcium metabolism. It is believed that this causes eggshells to be thinner and weaker than normal and makes the eggs more prone to breakage. (This is one of the reasons why the condor in California is near extinction.) An experiment was conducted where 16 sparrow hawks were fed a mixture of 3 ppm dieldrin and 15 ppm DDT (a combination often found in contaminated prey). The first egg laid by each bird was measured, and the mean shell thickness was found to be 0.19 mm. A “normal” eggshell has a mean thickness of 0.2 mm. The null and alternative hypotheses areA)B)C)D)E)ANSWER: AThe null hypothesis (H0) always refers to the population value for the mean (0.2).The alternate hypothesis (Ha) always refers to the belief or theory of the researchers in relation to the supposed mean of the population. Here it is stated “It is believed that this causes eggshells to be thinner and weaker than normal and makes the eggs more prone to breakage.” Thinner eggshell means the thickness will be less thanthe normal mean.2. A significance test allows you to reject a hypothesis in favor of an alternative Haat the 5% level of significance. What can you say about significance at the 1% level?A)can be rejected at the 1% level of significance.B)There is insufficient evidence to reject at the 1% level of significance.C)There is sufficient evidence to accept at the 1% level of significance.D)Hacan be rejected at the 1% level of significance.E)The answer can’t be determined from the information given.ANSWER: EUnless we actually know the p-value, we cannot reach any of the conclusions made in a-d. For example, if the p-value was 0.0321, it would NOT be significant at the 1% level. But if the p-value was .0031, it WOULD be siginificant at the 1% level. Both of those values are significant at the 5% level, but only one of them is at the 1% level.3. In a test of H0: µ= 100 against Ha: µ100, a sample of size 80 produces z= 0.8 for the value of the test statistic. The P-value of the test is thus equal toA) 0.20 C) 0.29B)0.40 D) 0.42 E) 0.21ANSWER: DThe p-value is dependent on the z-score and the alternate hypothesis (Ha).Here, z = 0.8. Using Table A, we see that the probability of such a result or greater is .2119. Since we have a “not equal to” alternate hypothesis, we must double the p-value. So the final
