Test identification Suppose you were asked to analyze each of the situations described below. (NOTE: Do not do these problems!) For each, indicate which procedure you would use (pick the appropriate number from the list), the test statistic (z or t), and, if t, the number of degrees of freedom.

a. Among randomly selected pets, 27% of the 188 dogs and 18% of the 167 cats had fleas. Does this indicate a significant difference in rates of flea problems for these two pets?

b. Are there more broken bones in summer or winter? We get records about the number of fractures treated in January and July at a random sample of 25 emergency rooms.

c. A random sample of 600 high school seniors reported their grade point averages and the amount of financial aid offered them by colleges. We wonder if there is an association between academic success and college aid.

d. The school newspaper wants a 95% confidence interval for the road test failure rate. In a random sample of 65 student drivers, 37 said they failed their driver's test at least once.

e. A supermarket chain wants to know which of two merchandise display methods is more effective. They randomly assign 15 stores to use display type A and 15 others to use display type B, then collect data about the number of items sold at each store.

f. Tags placed on garbage cans allow the disposal of up to 30 pounds of garbage. A random sample of 22 cans averaged 33.2 pounds with a standard deviation of 3.2 pounds. Is this strong evidence that residents overload their garbage cans?
