Is this convincing evidence that the mean contents of cola bottles is less than the advertised 300ml?(Find the z) A coin is tossed 10 times. What is the chance of observing 6 heads? Find the area under the x^2 curve with 10 degrees of freedom from the right of 4.86. A die is rolled 1296 times and lands on heads 650 times.

SD = 3.2 Null hypothesis : tutor doesn't help, ave score is still 60 In a sample of 40, ave age in 12th grade of school A = 17 SD = 0.2 In a sample of 20, ave age in 12 th grade of school B = 19 SD = 0.5 What is the SE for difference? What is the SE for a box with 60 red marbles, and 90 blue ones The average weight of the girls in the high school is 130lbs, and the SD is 30.
