5. At a school pep rally, a group of sophomore students organized a free rafﬂe for
prizes. They claim that they put the names of all of the students in the school in
the basket and that they randomly drew 36 names out of this basket. Of the prize
winners, 6 were freshmen, 14 were sophomores, 9 were juniors, and 7 were
seniors. The results do not seem that random to you. You think it is a little ﬁshy
that sophomores organized the rafﬂe and also won the most prizes. Your school is
composed of 30% freshmen, 25% sophomores, 25% juniors, and 20% seniors.
a. What are the expected frequencies of winners from each class?
b. Conduct a signiﬁcance test to determine whether the winners of the prizes
were distributed throughout the classes as would be expected based on the
percentage of students in each group. Report your Chi Square and p values.
c. What do you conclude?

Use the following information to answer the next twelve exercises: Suppose an airline claims that its flights are consistently on time with an average delay of at most 15 minutes. It claims that the average delay is so consistent that the variance is no more than 150 minutes. Doubting the consistency part of the claim, a disgruntled traveler calculates the delays for his next 25 flights. The average delay for those 25 flights is 22 minutes with a standard deviation of 15 minutes.
