3.I have an exam in an hour and I want someone to solve it for me. Statistics including normal distribution,
ution, regression, decision trees
Past paper has 5 questions (attached), we will have 4. Complexity of questions will be reduced slightly for decision trees and regression.
Visualisation question – written in word file or hand-written and scanned or photographed.
Sketch using online normal distribution visualisation applet (add notes around this to discuss if necessary) or sketch by hand and scan or photograph.
For mathematical workings, use formulae sheet, copy, paste and adapt, or scan / photograph your workings and upload.
Decision tree – use Office smart shapes, or sketch by hand and scan or photograph. If formulae are required, then use formula sheet, copy, paste and adapt.
Regression – written in word file or hand-written and scanned or photographed.
MCDA – written in word file or hand-written and scanned or photographed.
Remember if they appear, decision trees and regression will be a little less technical than they have been in the past. (To allow more of a buffer with regards to time available to complete and upload).
Visualisation and MCDA questions will be more general (strengths and weaknesses, key messages, make some recommendations).
Exam questions will be set so as to minimise practical and logistical difficulties in uploading answers.
6.Statistics questions help please! I have three questions
High levels of cholesterol in the blood are linked to a higher risk
d are linked to a higher risk of developing coronary heart diseases. A researcher is investigating two types of interventions (e.g. A, B) to reduce the cholesterol level. Study participants were randomized to receive either intervention A or B. Some subjects dropped from the study due to reasons not related to the interventions. In order to determine which intervention was more effective, the mean cholesterol concentrations were compared between the two groups at the end of the study. The total cholesterol levels for the patients undergoing the intervention A were: 240, 238, 245, 256, 289, 190, 189, 205, 200, 214, 237, 247, 254, 209, 211, 200 mg/dl. The total cholesterol levels for the patients undergoing the intervention B were: 213, 188, 199, 247, 248, 239, 256, 244, 206, 223, 241, 261, 226, and 231 mg/dl.
Which intervention was more effective? Consider alpha=0.05.
Intervention B was more effective.
Intervention A was more effective.
Impossible to tell based on the information provided.
The two interventions were not statistically significant different.
