10. We have mean batting averages for three groups of baseball teams. We want to test whether there’s a difference among these teams. The null hypothesis is:
A. μ1 = μ2 = μ3 C. μ1 ≤ μ2 ≤ μ3
B. μ1 ≠ μ2 ≠ μ3 D. The three means are not all equal.
11. For the situation in question 10, the alternate hypothesis is:

What test statistic will he use to test the hypothesis that the population proportion in the two groups is the same?

A. 0 B. 1 C. 2 D. 3
SCI/350 RES/341 RES/342
Students 15 45 30
15. Dr. Harder must plan future teaching load and needs to estimate how many students will enroll in each course he teaches. He will assume that the proportions of his students who will enroll in each class is equal, unless he finds significant evidence to the contrary. To test the hypothesis, he collects the data shown at right. What is the value of the χ2 test statistic?
A. 1.0 B. 5.0 C. 10.0 D. 15.0
16. How many degrees of freedom are there?
A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4
