Question 2 of 17
1.0 Points
An investor wants to compare the risks associated with two different stocks. One way to measure the risk of a given stock is to measure the variation in the stock’s daily price changes. 

In an effort to test the claim that the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 1 is different from the variance in the daily stock price changes for stock 2, the investor obtains a random sample of 21 daily price changes for stock 1 and 21 daily price changes for stock 2. 

The summary statistics associated with these samples are: n1 = 21, s1 = .725, n2 = 21, s2 = .529. 

If you compute the test value by placing the larger variance in the numerator, at the .05 level of significance, would you conclude that the risks associated with these two stocks are different?

Question 9 of 17
2.0 Points
Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000), “E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker. 
Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where “a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values. 
For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is valid whereas {9i} is not. 

A field researcher is gathering data on the trunk diameters of mature pine and spruce trees in a certain area.  The following are the results of his random sampling.  Can he conclude, at the 0.10 level of significance, that the average trunk diameter of a pine tree is greater than the average diameter of a spruce tree?
