Describe in Detail

Apply the Wilcoxon two-sample test to the following data on the first breakdown times of two brands of computers:

Brand A 98,102,47,85,99,140,130

Brand B 95,125,160,155,148.

Use 1·96 as the critical point for the appropriate test.

Explanation

Let n 1 be the number of breakdown times in the Brand A with median time m 1, and n 2 the number of breakdown times in the Brand B with median time m 2. Then the hypothesis is that the median times of the two brands are equal against the alternative that they are unequal.

For this first arrange the observations of the combine

Let k > 0 be a constant, and

Obtain P (X > 0.3).

Explanation

We first find the k value for which the f (x) is purely probability density function that is

So, density is

Then obtain P (X > 0.3)

Describe in Detail

The speed y (in km/hr) of a car at different points of time x between 10: 00 a. m. and 10: 40 a. m. on some day was recorded as follows:

Time x (a. m. )

10.00

10.10

10.20

10.30

10.40

Speed y (in km/hr)

24.2

35.0

41.3

42.8

39.2

Calculate the approximate distance covered by the car between 10: 00 a. m. and 10: 40 a. m. on that day using Simpson’s one-third formula for numerical integration.

Explanation

Answer: T he one-third rule of the integrand using Simpson’s rule is

Here n = 4, b = 10: 40 = 40 minutes, a = 10.00 = 0 minutes, h= (b-a) /n = 10 minutes

The distance covered by the car between 10: 00 a. m. and 10: 40 a. m. is
