7.It is known that for righthanded people, the dominant (right) hand tends to be stronger. For lefthanded people who live in a world designed for righthanded people, the same may not be true. To test this, muscle strength was measured on the right and left hands of a random sample of 15 lefthanded men and the difference (left  right) was found.

9. It is known that for righthanded people, the dominant (right) hand tends to be stronger. For lefthanded people who live in a world designed for righthanded people, the same may not be true. To test this, muscle strength was measured on the right and left hands of a random sample of 15 lefthanded men and the difference (left  right) was found. The alternative hypothesis is onesided (left hand stronger). The resulting tstatistic was 1.90.

A) The results are statistically significant so the left hand does not appear to be stronger.
B) The results are not statistically significant so there is not enough evidence to conclude the left hand appears to be stronger.
C) The results are statistically significant so the left hand appears to be stronger.
10. A null hypothesis is that the mean nose lengths of men and women are the same. The alternative hypothesis is that men have a longer mean nose length than women. Which of the following is the correct way to state the null hypothesis?

11. A researcher wants to assess if there is a difference in the average age of onset of a certain disease for men and women who get the disease. Let ?1 = average age of onset for women and ?2 = average age of onset for men. A random sample of 30 women with the disease showed an average age of onset of 83 years, with a sample standard deviation of 11.5 years. A random sample of 20 men with the disease showed an average age of onset of 77 years, with a sample standard deviation of 4.5 years. Assume that ages at onset of this disease are normally distributed for each gender, do not assume the population variances are equal. What are the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses?
A) µ1 = µ2 and Ha: µ1 ≠ µ2
B) µ1 ≠ µ2 and Ha: µ1 ≠ µ2
C) µ1 = µ2 and Ha: µ1 < µ2
D) µ1 = µ2 and Ha: µ1 > µ2
12.In the survey of a random sample of students at a university, two questions were "How many hours per week do you usually study?" and "Have you smoked marijuana in the past six months?" An analysis of the results produced the above Minitab output. A research question of interest is whether students who have smoked marijuana (group 1) in the past 6 months study fewer hours on average per week than those who have not (group 2). Based on the information given in the output, what conclusion can be made about the difference in time spent studying for the two groups?
A) There is not a statistically significant difference.
B) It is impossible to know if there is a statistically significant difference because the test is onesided and the information provided is twosided.
C) There is a statistically significant difference.
D) It is impossible to know if there is a statistically significant difference because no pvalue is provided.

17.On a survey conducted at a university, students were asked how they felt about their weight (about right, overweight, or underweight), and also were asked to record their grade point average (GPA). There were 235 responses, with 160 saying their weight was about right, 50 said they were overweight, and 17 underweight. The question of interest is whether mean GPA is the same or differs for different weight attitude populations. Minitab output for the study is given above.

19. Five different training programs for improving endurance are compared. Forty individuals are randomly divided into five groups of n = 8 each and a different training program is assigned to each group. After two months, the improvement in endurance is recorded for each participant. A oneway analysis of variance is used to compare the five training programs, and the resulting pvalue is 0.023. At a significance level of 0.05, the appropriate conclusion about mean improvement in endurance is that it
