m50  A goal of financial literacy for children is to learn how to manage money wisely. One question is: How much money do children have to manage? A recent study by Schnur Educational Research Associates randomly sampled 15 children between 8 and 10 years old and 18 children between 11 and 14 years old and recorded their monthly allowance. Is it reasonable to conclude that the mean allowance received by children between 11 and 14 years is more than the allowance received by children between 8 and 10 years? Use the .01 significance level. What is thepvalue?

m51  A group of department store buyers viewed a new line of dresses and gave their opinions of them. The results were:
Because the largest number (47) indicated the new line is outstanding, the head designer thinks that this is a mandate to go into mass production of the dresses. The head sweeper (who somehow became involved in this) believes that there is not a clear mandate and claims that the opinions are evenly distributed among the six categories. He further states that the slight differences among the various counts are probably due to chance. Test the null hypothesis that there is no significant difference among the opinions of the buyers. Test at the .01 level of risk. Follow a formal approach; that is, state the null hypothesis, the alternate hypothesis, and soon. 

m52  A highway employee performed a regression analysis of the relationship between the number of construction workzone fatalities and the number of unemployed people in a state. The regression equation is Fatalities 5 12.7 1 0.000114 (Unemp). Some additional output is:
a. How many states were in the sample?
b. Determine the standard error of estimate.
c. Determine the coefficient of determination.
d. Determine the correlation coefficient.
e. At the .05 significance level, does the evidence suggest there is a positive association between fatalities and the numberunemployed?

m53  A large company is organized into three functional areas: manufacturing, marketing, and research and development. The employees claim that the company pays women less than men for similar jobs. The company randomly selected four males and four females in each area and recorded their weekly salaries in dollars.
a. Draw the interaction graph. Based on your observations, is there an interaction effect? Based on the graph, describe the interaction effect of gender and area on salary.
b. Compute an ANOVA with statistical software, and use the 0.05 level to test for gender, area, and interaction effects on salary. Report the statistical results.
c. Compare the male and female mean sales for each area using statistical techniques. What do you recommend to thedistributor?

m54  (a) Let A C Rn be an open set such that boundary A is an (n  1) dimensional manifold. Show that N = AU boundary A is an dimensional manifold with boundary. (It is well to bear in mind the following example: if A = {x ЄRn}: x < 1 or 1 < x < 2}, then N = AU boundary A is a manifold with boundary, but ∂ N ≠ boundary A.
(b) Prove a similar assertion for an open subset of an ndimensional manifold.

m55  A machine is set to produce tennis balls so the mean bounce is 36 inches when the ball is dropped from a platform of a certain height. The production supervisor suspects that the mean bounce has changed and is less than 36 inches. As an experiment, a sample of 12 balls was dropped from the platform and the mean height of the bounce was 35.5 inches, with a standard deviation of 0.9 inch. At the .05 significance level, can the supervisor conclude that the mean bounce height is less than 36 inches?

m61  A new assemblyline procedure to increase production has been suggested by Mr. Mump. To test whether the new procedure is superior to the old procedure, a random sample of 15 assemblyline workers was selected. The number of units produced in an hour under the old procedure was determined, then the new Mump procedure was introduced. After an appropriate breakin period, their production was measured again. The results were:
At the .05 significance level, can we conclude the production is greater using the Mump method?

m62  A new industrial oven has just been installed at Piatt Bakery. To develop experience regarding the oven temperature, an inspector reads the temperature at four different places inside the oven each half hour starting at 8:00 a.m. The last reading was at 10:30 a.m., for a total of six samples. The first reading, taken at 8:00 a.m., was 340 degrees Fahrenheit. (Only the last two digits are given in the following table to make the computations easier.)
