### 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

against

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.

### Explanation

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.

### Describe in Detail

Given the following data:

 x 0 1 3 f (x) 1 3 55

find a polynomial P (x) of degree 2 or less so that P (x) = f (x) at the tabulated values of x. Hence

approximate f (2).

### Explanation

Let the a polynomial is P (X) = kx 2 +lx + m, where k, l, m are constants which is determine by using Lagrange’s interpolation polynomial because the x values is not equal interval.

where

x 0 =0, x 1 =1 , , x 2 =3 and f (x 0) =1, f (x 1) =3, f
