Safety researchers, interested in determining whether the occupancy of a vehicle might be related to the speed at which the vehicle is driven, have observed the following speed (mph) measurements for two random samples of vehicles.

Driver alone 64 50 71 55 67 61 80 56 59 74 at least one

Passenger 44 52 54 48 69 67 54 57 58 51 62 67

a. What are the null and alternative hypotheses for this test?

b. Use ANOVA and the 0.025 level of significance in testing the null hypothesis identified in part (a).

c. For each sample, construct the 95% confidence interval for the population mean.

Three racqueball players, one from each skill level, have been randomly selected from the membership list of a health club. Using the same ball, each person hits five serves, one with each of five racquets, and using the racquets in a random order. Each serve is clocked with a radar gun, and the results are shown here. With player skill level as a blocking variable, use the 0.025 level of significance in determining whether the treatment effects of the five racquets could all be zero. Using the 0.01 level, evaluate the effectiveness of the blocking variable. Player Skill Level

Seek smallest value in table labeled something like "areas under normal distribution."

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
