4

A random sample of 10 observations is selected from the first normal population and 8 from the second normal population. Assume that the unknown population variances are equal. For a one-tailed test of hypothesis (.01 significance level) to determine if there is a difference in the population means, the degrees of freedom are

17

C)

16

D)

None of the above.

5

A random sample of 10 observations is selected from the first normal population and 8 from the second normal population. Assume the unknown population variances are equal. For a one-tailed test of hypothesis (.01 significance level) to determine if there is a positive difference in the population means, the critical value(s) are

A)

2.552

B)

–2.921, 2.921

C)

–2.583, 2.583

D)

None of the above.

Normal populations.

B)

Equal population standard deviations.

C)

Equal sample sizes.

D)

All of the above are required.

7

To conduct a test of means for two independent samples, which of the following are always required?

8

To conduct a test of hypothesis for dependent samples we assume that

A)

The distribution of the difference between the paired observations is normal.

B)

Both samples are at least 30.

C)

The samples are unrelated.

D)

The value of the test statistic.

C)

The level of significance.

D)

All of the above are needed.
