Homework Help: statistics

Posted by John on Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 8:08pm.

An art professor was interested in seeing what size group is best to prime the pump so to speak to encourage strangers to gather together in front of various exhibits at her art show, so she set up an experiment. In a municipal building off campus, she asked a group of two students to stand next to each other and stare intently at a wall decoration while simultaneously she asked a group of five students to do the same at the other end of the floor. For the next 30 minutes she observed passersby to see if they too looked at the decorations for more than five seconds or made comments about the artwork to members of the either group.

Here is what she found: She observed 9 people make comments or look at the decorations for more than five seconds with respect to group of two (G2). Down the hallway, she observed 26 people look at the decorations or make comments to the group of five (G5). However, she found that 34 people just passed by G5 without noticing the decoration or making a comment. A smaller number (31) just walked past G2. Because G5 had more passers than participants, she concluded that placing two of her students in front of art displays would encourage strangers to do the same. Was this a good decision? Please support your answer with an appropriate test.
