CORRELATION & REGRESSION:

1)  What do you mean by the term correlation?

2)  Point out the differences between coefficient of correlation and regression.

3)  If the correlation for a given data set is 0.75 what does it signifies.

PROBABILITY:

1) If a person is vaccinated properly, the probability of getting the disease is .04. Without the vaccination, the probability of getting the disease is .30. Assume 1/4 of the population is properly vaccinated.

a. If a person is selected at random, what is the probability they will get the disease?

b. If a person gets the disease, what is the probability that they were properly vaccinated?

HYPOTHESIS TESTING:

1) In a large population of students, a school claims that the average ACT score is µ = 25. A newspaper disputes this claim and obtains a random sample of 34 students which yields an average of 24.2, and s = 6.2. Conduct a hypothesis test at the 10% level to determine whether there is statistical evidence that the survey is different than the actual population.

2) A test was designed to test student's ability to learn statistics. Thousands took the test and were divided by sex. A random sample of 50 was chosen from each group. The females had an average of 44 with a standard deviation of s = 2.1 and the males had an average of 45 with a standard deviation of s = 2.3. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the difference in mean test scores of the two populations.

3) The following is a random sample of numbers of people who were hired at a company over the last 10 years. Construct a 70% and 90% confidence interval for the difference in male and female hiring.
