7 A random sample of 32 companies was selected and asked for their annual dividend rate in three different industries: utilities, banking, and insurance. The ANOVA comparing the mean annual dividend rate among three industries rejected the null hypothesis. The Mean Square Error (MSE) was 3.36. The following table summarized the results:

Utilities Banking Insurance

Number sampled 10 10 12

Mean annual dividend rate 22.11 15.4 22.2

When comparing the mean annual dividend rate for companies in the utilities and insurance industries, the following 95% confidence interval can be constructed:

0.09 ± 2.179 * 1.57

0.09 ± 2.045 * 0.78

0.09 ± 2.179 * 0.78

0.09 ± 2.045 * 1.57

The claim that "40% of those persons who retired from an industrial job before the age of 60 would return to work if a suitable job was available" is to be investigated at the 0.02 significance level. If 74 out of the 200 workers sampled said they would return to work, what is our decision?

Do not reject the null hypothesis because -0.879 lies in the region between +2.5760 and -2.576.

Do not reject the null hypothesis because 37% lies in the area between 0% and 40%.

Do not reject the null hypothesis because -0.879 lies in the region between +2.326 and -2.326.

Reject the null hypothesis because 37% is less than 40%.

What are the two critical values for a two-tailed test with a 0.01 level of significance when n is large and the population standard deviation is known?

Above 2.58 and below -2.58

Above 0.68 and below -0.68

Above 2.26 and below -2.26

Above 1.00 and below -1.00

A hypothesis regarding the weight of newborn infants at a community hospital is that the mean is 11.3 pounds. A sample of seven infants is randomly selected and their weights at birth are recorded as 9.0, 7.3, 6.0, 8.8, 6.8, 8.4, and 11.3 pounds. The null hypothesis is

H0: µ = 11.3

H0: µ > 12.3

H0: µ ≥ 11.3

H0: µ ≤ 12.3

21 The annual dividend rates for a random sample of 16 companies in three different industries, utilities, banking, and insurance were recorded. The ANOVA comparing the mean annual dividend rate among three industries rejected the null hypothesis that the dividend rates were equal. The Mean Square Error (MSE) was 3.36. The following table summarized the results:

Picture

Based on the comparison between the mean annual dividend rate for companies in utilities and banking, the 95% confidence interval shows an interval of 1.28 to 6.28 for the difference. This result indicates that _____________________.

The annual dividend rate in the banking industry is significantly less than the annual dividend rate in the utilities industry

The interval contains a difference of 5.00

There is no significant difference between the two rates

The annual dividend rate in the utilities industry is significantly less than the annual dividend rate in the banking industry
