Describe a test of independence of two normal random variables based on r, the sample correlation coefficient using the t distribution. If n = 10 and r = 0·9, then carry out the test.


Let X 1, X 2, …, X n and Y 1, Y 2, …, Y n are samples variables and the correlation coefficient of between this paired samples is denoted by r. If X’s and Y’s are follows independent normal random variables and correlation coefficient is ρ. Then, we test the null hypothesis is that the relationship of random variable X and Y is not linear and the

Define correlation ratio η· Show that

0 ≤ ρ 2 ≤ η 2 ≤ 1.


In statistics, the correlation ratio is a measure of the relationship between the statistical dispersion within individual categories and the dispersion across the whole population or sample. The measure is defined as the ratio of two standard deviations representing these types of variation.

Suppose a value of X i has n i values of Y say, Y i1

Describe in Detail

Given the random samples

X: 1,5, 7,9, 15,17,21,23

Y: 2,6, 10,12,18,20,26,28,32

From the populations having the distribution function respectively as F 1 and F 2, test the hypothesis


at 5 % level of significance by the Wald-Wolfowitz run test. It is given that the critical number of runs at the sample sizes (8,9) at 5 % level is 5.


Wald-Wolfowitz run test uses the data of two random samples, sample 1 is X variables of size n = 8 and sample 2 is Y variables of size m = 9 from two population F 1 (x) and F 2 (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.

Find the most likely price in Mumbai corresponding to the price of Rs. 70 at Kolkata from the following:



Average price



Standard deviation



Correlation coefficient between the prices of commodities in the two cities is 0·8.


First we find the regression coefficient β YX where Y is the price at Mumbai and X is the price at Kolkata.

where ρ=0.8, σ Y =3.5, σ X =2.5

The estimated regression equation of Y corresponding to X is


Rs. 72.6 are the most likely p
