Let denote the population mean mass of biscuit bars, in grams.

Test

Under approximately, by Central Limit Theorem.

Test Statistic,

Using GC,

Since , we do not reject at 1% level of significance and conclude with insufficient evidence that the mean mass differs from 32g.

The r value is close to 1 which suggest a strong positive linear correlation between the average yields of corn and the amount of fertiliser applied.

The probability that the lights are faulty is constant.

The event that the light is faulty is independent of another light being faulty.

The light can only be either faulty or non faulty.

(ii)

Let denote the number of faulty lights in a box of 12.

Required Probability

(viii)

From (vii), the quick test seem to be 94% accurate. However, from (vi), we understand that out of the number of lights identified faulty, 42.1% of them will be a mistake. As such, the quick test is not worthwhile, since light identified as faulty are mistakingly discarded. Moreover it will cost money to administer a test.

Hi. Can you upload question 5 and 9iv/vii. These are the questions that differ from the other paper. Thankyou.

i dont have that paper. can send me at +65 9815 6827. I’ll do it.

Hello. I’ve sent you the papers. Please check π

thank you

Hi! Do you still need the paper?

for 5 i got 0.647, 0.350 and some decimal for the k.

for 9iv i got 0.472 i think x>=19.5 by c.c

for 9vi is conditional prob and i said something about the margin of error being less than the probability of fault 0.08.

Hi, wondering for the hypothesis testing question, is the left tail test accepted? Because in the real world context, the most important thing is u<32? Because if they overstated their claim, they can get sued but if they understated it then it doesnt matter? Well thats my logic but i regretted overthinking and changing my answer during the exam

doubt it. It’s not about the company being sued, it’s about testing if the claim holds true. And since it’s two-tailed the critical region changes also.

Will there be βerror carry forwardβ marks?? For eg if part (iii) needs (ii) answers, but my answer for part (ii) was wrong??

Sorry is there any error for 9iii? When i key into GC i get approx 0.47154

yes, i made a mistake. sorry! Thank you π

dont think the 9iv is correct? from gc value gives 0.472

yes, my bad. so sorry. typed wrongly. Thank you π

Hi, is it okay for you to show the working for 4bi) using the substitution u= a-y^2? Thanks so much for your help! π

Definitely. So Long as answer is correct π

I’m so sorry. This may seem very pessimistic but I would just like to know, what do u think are the cutoffs for grades C and D? It would be really helpful.

Hello there. This might come off as very pessimistic, but do u by any chance have any idea what the marks range is going to be for grades C and D overall? Would be really helpful

i reckon is +8 to the normal grade boundaries. π
