Problem 1

Here is a table of the eye color for 80 UCLA students enrolled in a recent statistics course and whether or not a student wears glasses or some other type of prescription/corrective lenses.

 Phenotype Wears glasses / Lenses Does not wear glasses / Lenses Total Dark-eyed Black 4 2 6 Brown 19 35 54 Light-eyed Blue 8 4 12 Green 2 3 5 Hazel 1 2 3 Total 34 46 80

Use the data from the table to answer this and the next 3 questions.

What percent of these UCLA statistics students are dark-eyed?

(a) 23/60 = 38.3%
(b) None of these values
(c) 23/80 = 28.8%
(d) 60/80 = 75%
(e) 37/60 = 61.7%

Problem 2

What percent of dark-eyed students wear corrective lens?

(a) 60/80 = 75%
(b) 37/60 = 61.7%
(c) 23/80 = 28.8%
(d) None of these values
(e) 23/60 = 38.3%

Problem 3

What percent of students who wear lenses are dark-eyed?

(a) 23/34 = 67.6%
(b) 23/80 = 28.8%
(c) 34/80 = 42.5%
(d) 34/60 = 56.7%
(e) 23/60 = 38.3%

Problem 4

The professor found a pair of prescription glasses on the ground after class, what are the chances that the glasses belong to a dark-eyed student?

(a) 34/80 = 42.5%
(b) 23/34 = 67.6%
(c) 23/80 = 28.8%
(d) 34/60 = 56.7%
(e) 23/60 = 38.3%

Problem 5

Jenny took a random sample of 250 males and a separate random sample of 270 females at UCLA. She asks them whether their major is science related, math related, social science related, or other type of field. She then constructs a contingency table of gender (two rows) by major (four columns). She wants to find out whether males and females differ in their choice of major. Which of the following should she examine?

(a) Row percentages
(b) Column marginals
(c) Cell percentages
(d) Column percentages
(e) Cell frequencies
(f) Row marginals

Problem 6
