Questions 5 through 8 refer to the following:
In 1985, the mean weight of players in the National Football League was 225 pounds. A random sample of 50 players taken during the 2012 season showed a mean weight of 249.7 pounds with a sample standard deviation of 35.2 pounds. The researcher is interested in finding evidence at the .05 level that the mean weight of NFL players...

...located on the bay or a golf course, near but not on the Gulf. Sample data from the Multiple Listing Service in Naples, Florida, provided recent sales data for 40 Gulf View condominiums and 18 No Gulf View condominiums. Prices are in thousands of dollars.

...look at the solutions guide first. 1. Explain the difference between a population and a sample. In which of these is it important to distinguish between the two in order to use the correct formula? mean; median; mode; range; quartiles; variance; standard deviation. 2. The following numbers represent the weights in pounds of six 7year old children in Mrs. Jones' 2nd grade class. {25, 60, 51, 47, 49, 45} Find the mean; median; mode; range; quartiles;...

Selecting a sample is less time-consuming than selecting every item in the population (census).
An analysis of a sample is less cumbersome and more practical than...

...Guessing the Bounce Plate Affect
Abstract
The goal behind this experiment was to estimate the distance a ball would travel after it falls a certain distance and bounces off a metal plate which has an angle of 45 degrees. To find this we had to take the basic equations for kinematics which are (1/2)at2=x and v=v0+at and combine them to make an equation that will help us solve for the distance the ball will travel after hitting the bounce plate. The equation came out to be...

The topic of 4th seminar&lab is the average of the
population that has a certain characteristic. This average is the population parameter of interest, denoted by the greek letter mu. We estimate this parameter with the statistic x-bar, the average in the sample.

Conclusion
Mean of difference scores
T-statistic takes the same basic form (statistic minus expected value/SD)
Reported as t(9) = .85, n.s.
Statistical decision (don’t reject null all hypothesis are plausible; reject accept all alternative hypotheses)
Interpretation
Independent group t-tests
The logic of testing hypothesis about the means of two independent groups is the same as for...
