Project Description:

need within: 24 hours

watch the two videos above: basketball players won’t accept the null hypothesis and how does statistical testing work?

questions:
1. the basketball player was much better than the presenter was. how come there was no statistically significance difference between them?
2. imagine that ernie and the statistician were going to play a long game, best out of a 100 or so. what analysis could you to predict what the final score might be?
3. does the difference in mean weights follow a normal distribution?
4. why do we do t tests instead of getting a computer to do the random sampling experiment?
