...?Running head: HOURS WORKED PER WEEK Effect of Gender, Work Status and Age on Hours Worked per Week July This study analysed the effect of gender, work status and age on number of hours worked per week in job along with relationship between individuals work status and their gender. The analysis was performed using the 2006 Northern Ireland Life & Time Survey data. The **statistical** methods used for the analysis were Independent-Samples t-Test, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Chi-Square Test of Independence and Correlation. The results suggested significant effect of gender and individual work status on number of hours worked per week in job, however, age have no significant effect on number of hours worked per week in job....

...2008/09 Voluntary **Statistics** **Assignment** The aim of the study is to find out whether solution time (for jigsaw puzzles) would vary with age. The null hypothesis is that there is no difference in solution time of 6-year-olds and 8-year-olds and the experimental hypothesis is that there is difference in solution time of 6-year-olds and 8-year-olds. The study was designed considering solution times for jigsaw puzzles for different age groups. Two age groups of children 6-year-olds and 8-year-olds took part (independent variable) and their solution time for jigsaw puzzles was measured (dependent variable).
The planned analysis is the t-test for Independent Samples. The three assumptions of the t-test for Independent Samples are met... . The...

...1. A research is usually meant to study the characteristics of a population. However, the size of a population in most cases is so large that it is not possible to gather all the relevant information on all population units. Rather it is a much more convenient option to collect a sample from the population and conduct a similar research on it and later check the significance of the results so obtained.
2. A simple random sampling refers to the case where a sample is drawn at random from the population and a research is conducted on it. On the other hand, stratified sampling implies the same research when conducted after dividing the total sample into various strata and then considering each individual result as one of the inherent...

...then be computed as follows:
Based on these parameters, it is then possible to determine whether the advertized mean differs from the actual mean.
Hypotheses:
H0: The advertized mean is the same as the actual mean.
H1: The advertized mean differs from the actual mean.
Degrees of Freedom:
From the t-distribution table, the corresponding critical value for two tails at 90% confidence is 1.761.
Decision Rule:
Reject H0 if 1.761
Calculations:
Conclusion:
Since 1.761, H0 is rejected. At 90% confidence, there is sufficient evidence to support that the advertized and actual mean life times differ.
Answer 9
At a sample size of 23, it is appropriate to use the t-distribution in place of z-scores. Since the relevant sample...

∂α = ,
=.04± (1.96* {[(.37*.63)/100]+ [(.41*.59)/100]}1/2
= .04±1.96*0.069
=.04±0.135
Considering each alone,
Leaflets alone
=.37±1.96 {(.37*.63)/100}1/2
=.37±.095
For the discussions group
=.41±1.96 {(.41*.59)/100}1/2
=.41±.096
This means that the proportion of improvement of those that participated in the discussions and group exercise overlap the proportion of improvement of those that did not. This means that participating in group discussions and exercises is beneficial in reducing chronic back pain than receiving leaflets alone. The interval, .04±0.135 indicates that the impact of discussions and group exercises has a proportion...

...Maths and **Statistics** - **Assignment** #2 Q a) The arc of a circle with a radius of 5cm is subtended by an angle of 24o. What is the length of the arc? What is the area of the sector? (Hint: first convert to radians)
Radius, cm
Angle,
Angle in Radians,
Length of an arc is given by
Therefore,
≈ 2.09 cm (2d.p.)
The length of the arc is about 2.09 cm.
Area of a sector is given by
( in radians)
Therefore,
≈ 5.25 cm2 (2d.p.)
The area of the sector is about 5.24 cm2.
(b) In the diagram below the line AB is a tangent to the circle of radius x.
What is the radius of the circle? (Hint: find out the definition of a tangent)
A tangent to a circle is a straight line that touches the circle at only one...

However, if receiving a jolt of electricity on one-occasion affects the following occasions than probability (p) will not remain the same for other occasions (because Charlie will be not alive for following occasions). In that circumstance, the probability that Charlie receives the life-ending shock on that last nth insertion will be.

...those who didn’t do the extra credit tests (**assignment**) scored least (M= 7.54, SE= .19). The significance criterion is shown by p= .002 ( Leech & Morgan,2005). This significance shows the importance of students to sitting for extra credit tests. It makes them ready and well prepared for the final exam. It can also be used by the administration and parents in convincing the students on the importance of extra credit tests.

(ii) Answer:
The pooled sample proportion is
p=(n1p1+n2p2)/(n1+n2)=(0.74*350+0.52*500)/(350+500)=(259+260)/850=0.611
(iii) Answer:
If the test **statistic** is 6.474, the p value for one tailed test is almost 0. It is given by p=3.16001E-10=0.000000000316
