The data presented in the table below resulted from an experiment in which seeds of 5 different types were planted and the number of seeds that germinated within 5 weeks after planting was recorded for each seed type. At the .01 level of significance, is the proportion of seeds that germinate dependent on the seed type?

An investor wants to compare the risks associated with two different stocks. One way to measure the risk of a given stock is to measure the variation in the stock’s daily price changes.
In an effort to test the claim that the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 1 is different from the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 2, the investor obtains a random sample of 21 daily price changes for stock 1 and 21 daily price changes for stock 2. The summary statistics associated with these samples are: n_{1} = 21, s_{1} = .725, n_{2} = 21, s_{2} = .529. If you compute the test value by placing the larger variance in the numerator, at the .05 level of significance, would you conclude that the risks associated with these two stocks are different? 

Two independent samples of sizes n_{1} = 50 and n_{2} = 50 are randomly selected from two populations to test the difference between the population means, . The sampling distribution of the sample mean difference, is:Reset Selection

Data for a sample of 25 apartments in a particular neighborhood are provided in the worksheet Apartments in the Excel workbook Apartments.xlsx.

QMart is interested in comparing its male and female customers. QMart would like to know if the amount of money spent by its female charge customers differs, on average, from the amount spent by its male charge customers. To answer this question, an analyst collected random samples of 25 female customers and 22 male customers. Based on these samples, on average, the 25 women charge customers spent $102.23 and the 22 men charge customers spent $86.46. Moreover, the sample standard deviation of the amount charged by the 25 women was $93.393, and the sample standard deviation of the amount charged by the 22 men was $59.695. Suppose, using a 10% level of significance, you wish to know if there is sufficient evidence for QMart to conclude that, on average, the amount spent by women charge customers differs from the amount spent by men charge customers. That is suppose you wish to test H0: versus H1: Assuming that the amounts spent by female and male charge customers at QMart are normally distributed, based on the procedure advocated by Bluman, what is/are the critical values that you would use to conduct this test of hypothesis? Place your answer, rounded to 3 decimal places, in the blank. If there are two critical values, place only the positive value in the blank. For example, 2.035 would be a legitimate entry. [removed]

In a particular region of Cape Cod, it is known that lobstermen trap on average of 32 pounds of lobster per day with a standard deviation of four pounds. If a random sample of 30 lobster fishermen is selected, what is the probability that their average catch is less than 31.5 pounds?

Suppose a firm that produces light bulbs wants to know whether it can say that its light bulbs typically last more than 1500 hours. Hoping to find support for their claim, the firm collects a random sample of n = 25 light bulbs and records the lifetime (in hours) of each bulb. The information related to the hypothesis test is presented below.

An ice cream vendor sells three flavors: chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Forty five percent of the sales are chocolate, while 30% are strawberry, with the rest vanilla flavored. Sales are by the cone or the cup. The percentages of cones sales for chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, are 75%, 60%, and 40%, respectively. For a randomly selected sale, define the following events:
= chocolate chosen
= strawberry chosen
= vanilla chosen
= ice cream on a cone
