Describe in Detail

Name two non-parametric tests for comparing locations of two correlated populations.

Explanation

The Wald-Wolfowitz runs test and Mann-Whitney U-test comparing locations of two correlated populations. Let the sample 1 consider the population X and sample 2 consider the population Y. The hypothesis whether two sample comes from same identical population. We test the following null and alternative hypothesis is

Describe in Detail

The values of two random samples are arranged below in an increasing order with X denoting the value of sample I and Y denoting the value of sample 2:

XXXYXYYYYXXYXXXYXXYYY

Use Wald-Wolfowitz run test to test whether the two samples may be regarded as coming from a common population.

Explanation

Wald-Wolfowitz run test uses the data of two random samples, sample 1 is X variables of size n = 11 and sample 2 is Y variables of size m = 10 from two population F X (x) and F Y (y) respectively.

The hypothesis under the test is that the null hypothesis is the two population are identical otherwise the alternative is the population is differ.

Describe in Detail

Show that convergence in probability implies convergence in distribution.

Explanation

The sequence X n converges to X in probability if for any ε > 0

The sequence X n converges to the distribution of X as n tends to infinity if

For ε > 0,

Hence

Describe in Detail

Let X be a random variable with E [X] = 4 and E [X 2] = 20. Use Chebyshev’s inequality to determine a lower bound for the probability P [0 < x < 8].

Explanation

Let X be a random variable with mean µ and variance σ 2. Then any k > 0, the Chebyshev’s inequality is

or ‎

σ 2 = E [X 2] - (E [X] ) 2 =4

Then, a lower bound for the probability

Using Chebyshev’s inequality
