Exercise 23
Questions to be Graded
1. What is the r value for the relationship between Hamstring strength index 60/s and the Shuttle run test? Is this r value significant? Provide a rationale for your answer
A weak negative relationship is seen between Hamstring strength index 60 degree/s and the Shuttle run test due to r = −0.149 (see Table 5). Since r <-0.3, this signifies a week relationship. The r value is not statistically significant since p = 0.424 > 0.01.
2. Consider r =1.00 and r =–1.00. Which r value is stronger? Provide a rationale for your answer
The r values of +1.00 and –1.00 both indicate the strongest possible relationships among variables. (+) 1.00 is the strongest, or perfect positive relationship, and indicates that variables change either increasing together or decreasing together. (–) 1.00 is the strongest, or perfect negative relationship, and indicates that variables change in opposite directions meaning that as one variable increases the other variable decreases.
3. Describe the direction of the relationship between the Hamstring strength index 60/s and the Shuttle run test.
The relationship between Hamstring strength index 60 degree/s and the Shuttle run test is a negative relationship as r = −0.149. The strength of this negative relationship would be weak with r <–0.3 as r moves away from zero in negative direction. This means that when Hamstring strength index 60 degree/s increases and Shuttle run test decreases.
4. Without using numbers, describe the relationship between the Hamstring strength index 120/s and the Triple hop index
The relationship between the Hamstring strength index 120/s and the Triple hop index is r = 0.420. This is a moderate positive relationship since the r value falls between 0.3 to 0.5. This relationship is also statistically significant since the p value is less than the alpha value (0.019 and

## Shapiro-Wilk Normality test

291 Words | 2 PagesAlthough the data are slightly right skewed, because of the large sample size(n=152) our inference on the mean is valid, by the Central Limit Therom. The Box Cox plot suggests a power transformation using a power, p= -0.5 would make the data more shaped like a normal distribution. The Normal Q-Q plot shows the transformed data points lying close to the straight line and the box plot of the transformed data looks symmetric with two outliers. The numerical summary of the transformed data confirms that the transformed data are symmetric (mean=1 and median=1). A Shapiro-Wilk test on the transformed data provides no evidence against the transformed data having come fro a normal distribution (P-value=0.4286).

This t ratio is significant since it is causing the p value to be significantly low, less than the alpha 0.05 set for the study. 5. Consider t = −2.50 and t = −2.54.

## Samsung Case Essay

5709 Words | 23 PagesSome of you went into more detail here. To the extent those details overlapped with (b), I counted them as part of the (b) answer According to Exhibit 7a, Samsung’s costs per (256MBit equivalent) unit are lower by $1.39, or 24.4%, than those of its average competitor. They are lower by 10% than SMIC’s costs, which is Samsung’s lowest-cost competitor. An indirect way to tell that Samsung has a benefit advantage is by its ability to charge higher prices than its competitors. According to Exhibit 7a, Samsung’s prices per chip are on average higher by $0.72 than those of its competitors, or by 14.5%.

Another positive is that over 300 people did the study, which increases the study reliability. On the other hand there is criticism to the SRRS. One of them being that there is no allowance for individual differences, in divorce, one partner is usually happier about it than the other, although both would be given the same score on the scale.

## Overlapping Confidence Intervals and Statistical Significance

459 Words | 2 PagesThe confidence interval for the first group mean is thus (4.1, 13.9). Similarly for the second group, the confidence interval for the mean is (12.1, 21.9). Notice that the two intervals overlap. However, the t-statistic for comparing two means is: t= 17 − 9 2.5 2 + 2.5 2 = 2.26 which reflects that the null hypothesis, that the means of the two groups are the same, should be rejected at the α = 0.05 level. To verify the above conclusion, consider the 95 percent confidence interval for the difference between the two group means: (17 − 9 ) ± 1.96 × 2.5 2 + 2.5 2 which yields (1.09, 14.91).

## Exxon Mobil Analysis
