Carpetland salespersons average $8,000 per week in sales.

Steve Contois, the firm's vice president, proposes a compensation

plan with new selling incentives. Steve hopes that the results of a

trial selling period will enable him to conclude that the compensation

plan increases the average sales per salesperson.

 

A.Develop the appropriate null and alternative hypotheses.

B.What is the Type I error in this situation? What are the consequences

of making this error?

C.What is the Type II error in this situation? What are the consequences

of making this error?

refund of $1,056. Consider population of "last minute" filers who mail their tax return

during the last five days of the income tax period (typically April 10 to 15).

 

A.A researcher suggests that a reason individuals wait until the last five days is that on average

these individuals receive lower refunds than do early filers. Develop appropriate hypotheses

such that rejection of H(o) will support the researcher's contention.

B.For a sample of 400 individuals who filed a tax return between April 10-15, the sample

mean refund was $910. Based on prior experience, a population standard deviation of

o = $1,600 may be assumed. What is the p-value?

C.At a = .05, what is your conclusion?

 

D.Repeat the preceding hypothesis test using the critical value approach.

<pstyle="language:en-us;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;margin-left:0in; text-indent:0in"="" style="font-family: Verdana, arial, sans-serif; line-height: normal;">Commercial real estate prices and rental reates suffered substantial declines

 

in the past year (Newsweek article July 2009). These declines were particularly

severe in Asia; annual lease rates in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore declined

by 40% or more. Even with such large declines, annual lease rates in Asia were

still higher than in many cities in Europe and the United States. Annual lease

rates for a sample of 30 commercial properties in Hong Kong showed an average

of $1,114 per square meter with a standard deviation of $230. Annual lease rates

for a sample of 40 commercial properties in Paris showed an average lease rate of

$989 per square meter with a standard deviation of $195.

 

A.On the basis of the sample results, can we conclude that the mean annual lease rate

is higher in Hong Kong than in Paris? Develop appropriate null and alternative hypotheses.

 

B.Use a = .01. What is your conclusion? Are rental rates higher in Hong Kong than in Paris?

Cost data (in dollars) for a sample of flights to eight cities from Dayton, Ohio

and Louisville, Kentucky were collected to help determine which of the two

airports was more costly to fly from (2006 study). A researcher argued that it is

significantly more costly to fly out of Dayton than Louisville. Use the sample data to

see whether they support the researcher's argument. Use a = .05 as the level of significance

in the retail and trade industry. The percentage of management jobs held

by women in each company is also shown.

 

A.Develop a scatter diagram for these data with the percentage of women working

in the company as the independant variable.

B.What does the scatter diagram developed in part (a) indicate about the relationship

between the two variables?

C.Try to approximate the relationship between the percentage of women working

in the company and the percentage of management jobs held by women in that company.

D.Develop the estimated regression of equation by computing the values of B(o) and B(v).

E.Predict the percentage of management jobs held by women in a company that has

 

60% women employees.

B.Does there appear to be any relationship between these two variables?

C.Develop the estimated regression equation that could be used to predict

the price given the weight.

D.Test for the significance of the relationship at the .05 level of significance.

 

E.Did the estimated regression equation provide a good fit? Explain.
