Are you “In a Relationship”?
A new study^{1} shows that relationship status on Facebook matters to couples. The study included 58college-age heterosexual couples who had been in a relationship for an average of 19 months. In 45 of the 58 couples, both partners reported being in a relationship on Facebook. In 31 of the 58 couples, both partners showed their dating partner in their Facebook profile picture. Men were somewhat more likely to include their partner in the picture than vice versa. However, the study states: “Females’ indication that they are in a relationship was not as important to their male partners compared with how females felt about male partners indicating they are in a relationship.” Using a population of college-age heterosexual couples who have been in a relationhip for an average of 19 months:
(a) A 95% confidence interval for the proportion with both partners reporting being in a relationship on Facebook is about 0.66 to 0.88. What is the conclusion in a hypothesis test to see if the proportion is different from 0.5? What significance level is being used?
Conclusion: H0
Significance level:
(b) A 95% confidence interval for the proportion with both partners showing their dating partner in their Facebook profile picture is about 0.40 to 0.66 . What is the conclusion in a hypothesis test to see if the proportion is different from 0.5? What significance level is being used?
Conclusion: H0

Random Samples of College Degree Proportions
The distribution of sample proportions of US adults with a college degree for random samples of size n=500 is N(0.275,0.02). How often will such samples have a proportion, ^{Ù}p, that is more than 0.300?
Round your answer to one decimal place.

A statistics instructor designed an exam so that the grades would be roughly normally distributed with mean m=75 and standard deviation δ=11. Unfortunately, a fire alarm with ten minutes to go in the exam made it difficult for some students to finish. When the instructor graded the exams, he found they were roughly normally distributed, but the mean grade was 60 and the standard deviation was 18. To be fair, he decides to ‘‘curve” the scores to match the desired N(75,11) distribution. To do this, he standardizes the actual scores to z-scores using the N(60,18) distribution and then ‘‘unstandardizes” those z-scores to shift to N(75,11).

Where Is the Best Seat on the Plane?
A survey of 1000 air travelers^{1} found that 60% prefer a window seat. The sample size is large enough to use the normal distribution, and a bootstrap distribution shows that the standard error is SE=0.015.
Use a normal distribution to find a 90% confidence interval for the proportion of air travelers who prefer a window seat.

Hospital admissions for asthma in children younger than 15 years was studied^{1} in Scotland both before and after comprehensive smoke-free legislation was passed in March 2006. Monthly records were kept of the annualized percent change in asthma admissions, both before and after the legislation was passed. For the sample studied, before the legislation, admissions for asthma were increasing at a mean rate of 5.2% per year. The standard error for this estimate is 0.7% per year. After the legislation, admissions were decreasing at a mean rate of 18.2% per year, with a standard error for this mean of 1.79%. In both cases, the sample size is large enough to use a normal distribution.

Penalty Shots in World Cup Soccer
A study^{1} of 138 penalty shots in World Cup Finals games between 1982 and 1994 found that the goalkeeper correctly guessed the direction of the kick only 41% of the time. The article notes that this is ‘‘slightly worse than random chance.” We use these data as a sample of all World Cup penalty shots ever. Test at a 5% significance level to see whether there is evidence that the percent guessed correctly is less than 50%. The sample size is large enough to use the normal distribution. The standard error from a randomization distribution under the null hypothesis is SE=0.043.

How Often Do You Use Cash?
In a survey^{1} of 1000 American adults conducted in April 2012, 43% reported having gone through an entire week without paying for anything in cash. Test to see if this sample provides evidence that the proportion of all American adults going a week without paying cash is greater than 40%. Use the fact that a randomization distribution is approximately normally distributed with a standard error of SE=0.016. Show all details of the test and use a 5% significance level.
