Part A (Long Questions)
Question-1 (16 Points) Answer the following two separate parts:
Males and females were asked about what they would do if they received a \$100 bill by
mail, addressed to their neighbor, but wrongly delivered to them. Would they return it to
their neighbor? The results are shown below.
Male Female
n1 = 69 n2 = 131
Yes, would return = 52 Yes, would return = 120
We are interested in determining if the “female” proportion of returning the bill is 5%
more than that of “males”.
a) [6 Points] First setup the hypothesis, then find the p-value of the test. In a maximum
of three sentences interpret the p-value and make a conclusion (inference).
Solution:

69 1.963
= 2[PZ > 1.963)] 5%
The p-value is around 5% which indicate a strong (to moderate) evidence to reject
the null. There is strong to moderate evidence in favor of rejecting null. 5% more
Females return the bill!

b (10 points) A study on the time UTSC students spend playing sports each weak is done
and data are collected and summarized in the following. (Note: Both populations are
assumed to be normally distributed.)
Male
Female
Sample size
n1 = 31
n2 = 21
Sample mean (hours)

= 4.6
Sample standard deviation
S1 = 0.912
S2 = 1.1
b1(5 Points) Test at 5% if these two populations have similar variances. (Make sure to set
up the null and alternative hypothesis before you perform your test)

Conclusion: Cannot reject the null hypothesis. Cannot conclude at 5% that the variances
are different.
