Problem

Each day at a large hospital, several hundred laboratory tests are performed.

The rate at which these tests are done improperly (and therefore need to be redone) seems steady, at about 4%.

In an effort to get to the root cause of these nonconformance, tests that need to be redone, the director of the lab decided to keep records over a period of one week.

The laboratory tests were subdivided by the shift of workers who performed the lab tests. The results are as follows:

shift

Labs test performed day evening total

Non-conforming 16 24 40

Conforming 654 306 960

Total 670 330 1000

a. construct contingency tables based on total percentages, row percentages, and column percentages.

b. which type of percentage - row, column, or total do you think is most informative for these data? Explain

c. what conclusions concerning the pattern of non-conforming laboratory test can the laboratory director reach?

The GMAT scores from a sample of 50 applicants to an MBA program indicate that none of the applicants scores below 450

A frequency distribution was formed by choosing class intervals 450 to 499, 500 to 549 and so on, with the last class having an interval from 700 to 749.

Two applicants score in the interval 450 to 499, and 16 applicants scored in the interval 500 to 549
