- C.
A statistical procedure which can be used to determine the exact value of a population parameter.

- D.
What the experimenter wants to support as being true.

- E.

- 2.What is a test statistic?
- A.
A quantity calculated from the sample that is used when making a decision about the hypotheses of interest.

- B.
A quantity that helps a person understand the statistics behind the population

- C.
A quantity that describes a sample.

- D.

- 4.It has been observed that some persons who suffer renal failure are diagnosed with it again within one year of the first episode. This is due, in part, to damage from the first episode. In order to examine the percentage of the persons who suffer renal failure a second time, a random sample of 1000 people who suffered renal failure was collected and it was observed that 14 of them again suffered renal failure within one year. Select a 90% confidence interval [__,__] for the true proportion of those who suffer a second episode. Use the appropriate table in your book.

- 5.It has been observed that some persons who suffer renal failure are diagnosed with it again within one year of the first episode. This is due, in part, to damage from the first episode. In order to examine the percentage of the persons who suffer renal failure a second time, a random sample of 1100 people who suffered renal failure was collected and it was observed that 17 of them again suffered renal failure within one year.
