1. Are stock splits beneficial to stockholders? SNL Financial studied stock splits in the banking

industry over an 18-month period. For a sample of 20 stock splits, 15 led to an increase in

investment value, 3 led to a decrease in investment value, and 2 resulted in no change.

Conduct a sign test to determine if it can be concluded that stock splits are beneficial for

holders of bank stocks.

a) What are the null and alternative hypotheses?

b) Using α = .01, what is your conclusion?

2. A poll taken during the recession in 2008 asked 600 adults a series of questions about the

state of the economy and their children’s future. One question was, “Do you expect your

children to have a better life than you have had, a worse life, or a life about the same as

yours?” The responses showed 240 better, 310 worse, and 50 about the same. Use the sign

test and α = .01 to determine whether there is a difference between the number of adults who

feel their children will have a better life compared to a worse life. What is your conclusion?

3. A test was conducted for two overnight mail delivery services. Two samples of identical

deliveries were set up so that both delivery services were notified of the need for a delivery at

the same time. The hours required to make each delivery follow. Do the data shown suggest a

difference in the median delivery times for the two services? Use a .10 level of significance

for the test.

4. Unisys maintains a hurricane database which provides information on hurricanes in the

Atlantic/Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico and the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Maximum wind speeds in

knots for a sample of hurricanes over the past four hurricane seasons are shown. Use α = .10

and test to determine whether the distribution of hurricane wind speeds is the same for these

two regions. What is your conclusion?
