1. Use appropriate descriptive statistics to summarize the training time data for each method. What similarities or differences do you observe from the sample data? Descriptive analysis in excel has been used to come up with relevant figures of the given data samples which is tabulated below: Descriptive Statistics| Current| Proposed|

Analysis of descriptive statistics shows that both the current and the proposed plan have almost similar mean completion hours which stand at 75.06 and 75.42 for the current and proposed respectively. Both the plans have exact same median and mode. However, the standard deviation in the current plan (3.94) is higher than that in the proposed plan (2.56), which is ultimately leading to the higher variance in the current plan. This suggests that the completion hours are more dispersed the mean value in the current plan, hence the mean does not give the true picture of data distribution whereas in the proposed plan, data for completion hours is comparatively more congregated.

2. Use the methods of Chapter 10 to comment on any difference between the population means for the two methods. Discuss your findings.

On chapter 10, interval estimation is used to reject or accept the hypothesis made about the two means. In this case, the hypothesis will be as follows:

Ho: μ1 - μ2 =0
Ha :μ1 -μ2 ≠ 0
Where μ1 is the sample mean for current method and μ2 is the sample mean for proposed method.
Since we do not have data on the sample variances of the two data sample provided, we use T-test in excel for two samples with unequal...

Question 1
The sampling method that Mr. Kwok is using is Stratified Random Sampling Method. In this case study, Mr Kwok collected a random sample of 1000 flights and proportions of three routes in the sample. He divides them into different sub-groups such as satisfaction, refreshments and departure time and then selects proportionally to highlight specific subgroup within the population. The reasons why Mr Kwok used this sampling method are that the cost per observation in the survey may be reduced and it also enables to increase the accuracy at a given cost.

...significantly from the 24 hours?) (a) Use the steps of hypothesis testing. (b) Sketch the distributions involved. (c) Explain your answer to someone who has never taken a course in statistics.
Solution:
(a) Use the steps of hypothesis testing.
Size of sample, n = 8
Degree of freedom = n-1 = 8-1 = 7
Sum of sample = i=1∑n=8xi = (25+27+25+23+24+25+26+25) = 200
| Time (in Hours) | Sum | Mean(xm) | (xi- xm)2 | Standard Deviation |
1 | 25 | 200 |Mean = Sum/n= 200/8= 25 | 0 | σ = √( i=1∑n=8(xi-xm)2/(n-1))= √(10/7)= √1.4285= 1.195 |
2 | 27 | | | 4 | |
3 | 25 | | | 0 | |
4 | 23 | | | 4 | |
5 | 24 | | | 1 | |
6 | 25 | | | 0 | |
7 | 26 | | | 1 | |
8 | 25 | | | 0 | |
Here X = 25
σ = 1.195
We can define two-tailed statistics for above observations as follows:
Null Hypothesis: H0: =24 vs. Ha: 24
Rejection region:
z < -z/2 or z > z/2
Here significance level is 0.05,
So, z0.025 = 1.96 (Using Statistical Ratio Calculator
Now,
z = (X - μ) / σx
Where X is a normal random variable, μ is the mean, and σ is the standard deviation.
Where n is the sample size.
Calculating t-test statistics:
z = 25-24/(1.195/√8) = 1* √8/1.195= 2.828/1.195 = 2.366
Calculating p-value:
Degree of freedom = DF = 8-1 = 7
Absolute value of calculated t-test statistics = |z| = |2.366| = 2.366
P(|z7| < 2.366) = 0.049899
The p-value...

Statistics 2
When we hear about business statistics, when think about the decisions that a manager makes to help make his/her business successful. But do we really know what it takes to run a business on a statistical level? While some may think that businessstatistics is too much work because it entails a detailed decision making process that includes calculations, I feel that without educating yourself on the processes first you wouldn’t know how to imply statistics. This is a tool managers will need in order to run a successful business. In this paper I will review types of statistical elements like: Descriptive, Inferential, hypothesis development and testing and the evaluation of the results. Also I will discuss what I have learned from business statistics.
My description of Descriptive statistics is that they are the numerical elements that make up a data that can refer to an amount of a categorized description of an item such as the percentage that asks the question, “How many or how much does it take to “ and the outcome numerical amount. According to “Dr. Ashram’s Statistics site” “The quantities most commonly used to measure the dispersion of the values about...

Major Statistics Assignment
This major statistics assignment will finally pull together everything that was learned in this course. The application of all content within this course will be incorporated to three different research scenarios. Within each scenario, hypothesis testing will be done, followed by a discussion of relevant descriptive statistics and finally, a discussion of the findings which includes nursing practice implications and research implications.
Research Scenario #1
In this research scenario, the researchers were interested in the following research question: “Is there a difference in nurses’ abilities to identify nursing skills that reflect knowledge of client centered care values of A) respect and human dignity B) consistency, continuity and timelessness of care or C) patient autonomy, patient voice and patient as decision maker.” To answer this research question, a hypothesis testing will be conducted followed by a discussion of the findings. The discussion of the findings will include a discussion of descriptive statistics, followed by nursing and research implications.
Hypothesis Testing
Step 1. The first step in hypothesis testing is to state the null and research hypothesis. The null hypothesis can be: “There is no difference in the nurse’s abilities...

REFLECTION
The first thing that puffs in my mind when I heard the word STATISTIC is that it was a very hard subject because it is another branch of mathematics that will make my head or brain bleed of thinking of how I will handle it. I have learned that statistic is a branch of mathematics concerned with the study of information that is expressed in numbers, for example information about the number of times something happens. As I examined on what the statement says, the phrase “number of times something happens” really caught my attention because my subconscious says “here we go again the non-stop solving, analyzing of problems” and I was right. This course of basic statistic has provided me with the analytical skills to crunch numerical data and to make inference from it. At first I thought that I will be alright all along with this subject but it seems that just some part of it maybe it is because I don’t pay much of my attention to it but I have learned many things. I have learned my lesson.
During our every session in this subject before having our midterm examination I really had hard and bad times in coping up with this subject. When we have our very first quiz I thought that I would fail it but it did not happen but after that, my next quizzes I have taken I failed. I was always feeling down when in every quiz I failed because even though I don’t like this...

...Mathematics is the written application of operation. It teaches students to think clearly, reason well and strategize effectively. Mental Mathematics is the ability to utilise mathematical skills to solve problems mentally. The marks scored by pupils generate statistics which are used by teachers to analyse a student’s performance and development of theories to explain the differences in performance.
The Standard 3 class is where the transition from junior to senior level occurs where teachers expect the transference of concrete to abstract thinking would have occurred.
A common theory by many primary school teachers is ‘Students perform better in Mathematics than Mental math. Mental math is something that has to be developed and involves critical thinking. Mental math requires quick thinking and the student must solve the problem in their minds whereas in regular mathematics, the problem can be solved visually. Therefore, teachers should take these factors into consideration while testing and marking students in these areas.’
In this study, the statistics of 30 students of a standard 3 class of San Fernando Boys’ Government School will be analysed to determine the truth of this theory.
DATA COLLECTION METHODS
Mathematics and mental mathematics marks of term 1 of the class of 2013 were obtained from a Standard 3 teacher of San Fernando Boys’ Government School.
The marks were divided into the form:...

Glossary of Terms
Statistics - a set of concepts, rules, and procedures that help us to:
organize numerical information in the form of tables, graphs, and charts;
understand statistical techniques underlying decisions that affect our lives and well-being; and
make informed decisions.
Data - facts, observations, and information that come from investigations.
Measurement data sometimes called quantitative data -- the result of using some instrument to measure something (e.g., test score, weight);
Categorical data also referred to as frequency or qualitative data. Things are grouped according to some common property(ies) and the number of members of the group are recorded (e.g., males/females, vehicle type).
Variable - property of an object or event that can take on different values. For example,...

According to Trochim, “Descriptive statistics are used to describe the basic features of the data in a study. They provide simple summaries about the sample and the measures. Together with simple graphics analysis, they form the basis of virtually every quantitative analysis of data” (Trochim, 2006). For many years, many studies and researches have been done in real estate market. Buyers need to conduct researches to decide which house they will purchase. Buyers’ concerns include the price of the house, the number of bedrooms, and location. Real estate agents need to gather all the necessary information to provide their services to buyers. Additionally, the agents must be able to predict what types of houses are most likely to sell. In this paper, I will provide the summary of what I have been studying. The paper will include the measure of central tendency, dispersion, and skew for data. In addition, this paper will also contain graphic data as well as tabular data to demonstrate my findings and studies. In the end, conclusion will present whether my research findings answered the problem statement or if more research may be needed.
Examining the data collected for the current real estate market desires, following are the conclusions based on its findings. There are many key factors to consider when purchasing a home. Some of the factors include interest...
