can
be
asserted
with
98%
confidence
that
the
underlying
yearly
real
variance
of
the
portfol

With
98%
confidence
Lower
limit 3.05348411
Upper
limit 24.7249703
With
98%
confidence
we
cannot
reject
Ho
since
the
statistic
is
inside
the
acceptance
zone
b)
Check
the
same
hypothesis
with
95%
confidence.

With
95%
confidence
Lower
limit 3.81574825
Upper
limit 21.9200493
With
95%
confidence
we
cannot
reject
Ho
since
the

480

a)
Check
whether
the
hypothesis
that
the
population
variance
of
their
scores
is
300
can
be
accepted
with
95
%

Ho:
sigma^2
=

H1:
sigma^2
not
=
300

Statistic
46.4

Lower
limit 16.0470717
Upper
limit 45.7222858
We
can
reject
Ho
with
95%
confidence
since
it
falls
outside
of
the
interval

b)
Check
with
90%
confidence
the
hypothesis
that
the
population
variance
of
the
scores
is
greater
or
equal
than
Ho:
sigma^2
>=
300
H1:
sigma^2

a)
Test
whether
the
two
population
variances
can
be
considered
equal
with
95
%
confidence.

limit

Statistic

7.09514925

0.06786692
6.59879852

We
can
reject
Ho
with
95%
confidence
since
it
falls
outside
of
the
interval

b)
With
95%
confidence,
test
the
hypothesis
that
the

Ho:
sigma1^2
>=
sigma2^2
H1:
sigma1^1
<

We
cannot
reject
Ho
with
95%
since
it
is
higher
than
the
