Question 1 of 23The data presented in the table below resulted from an experiment in which seeds of 5 different types were planted and the number of seeds that germinated within 5 weeks after planting was recorded for each seed type. At the .01level of significance, is the proportion of seeds that germinate dependent on the seed type?Observed FrequenciesGerminatedFailed to Germinate17573338760452445Seed Type3121019A.Yes, because the test value 16.86 is greater than the critical value of 13.28B.Yes, because the test value 16.86 is less than the critical value of 14.86C.No, because the test value 16.86 is greater than the critical value of 13.28D.No, because the test value 13.28 is less than the critical value of 16.86Reset SelectionQuestion 2 of 231.0 PointsThe chi-square goodness-of-fit test can be used to test for:A.normalityB.significance of sample statisticsC.difference between population variancesD.difference between population meansReset SelectionPart 2 of 16 -Question 3 of 231.0 PointsA single variable X can explain a large percentage of the variation in some other variable Y when the two variables are:A.highly correlatedB.directly relatedC.mutually exclusiveD.inversely relatedReset Selection1.0 PointsQuestion 4 of 23The standard error of the estimate, sest, is essentially theA.standard deviation of the explanatory variableB.mean of the explanatory variableC.mean of the residualsD.standard deviation of the residualsReset Selection1.0 PointsQuestion 5 of 23In regression analysis, the variable we are trying to explain or predict is called theA.regression variableB.dependent variableC.residual variableD.independent variableReset SelectionPart 3 of 16 -1.0 PointsQuestion 6 of 23Q-Mart is interested in comparing its male and female customers. Q-Mart would like to know if the amount of moneyspent by its female charge customers differs, on average, from the amount spent by its male charge customers.To answer this question, an analyst collected random samples of 25 female customers and 22 male customers. Basedon these samples, on average, the 25 women charge customers spent \$102.23 and the 22 men charge customersspent \$86.46. Moreover, the sample standard deviation of the amount charged by the 25 women was \$93.393, and thesample standard deviation of the amount charged by the 22 men was \$59.695.Using the procedure advocated by Bluman, at the 10% level of significance, is there sufficient evidence for Q-Mart toconclude that, on average, the amount spent by women charge customers differs from the amount spent by mencharge customers.A.No, the p-value of this test is less than 0.10.B.Yes, the test value does not exceed the critical valueC.No, the test value does not exceed the critical value.D.Yes, the p-value of this test is greater than 0.10Reset Selection1.0 PointsQuestion 7 of 23Two independent samples of sizes n1 = 50 and n2 = 50 are randomly selected from two populations to test thedifference between the population means,difference,.
