**55**. The American League and the National League of Major League Baseball are each divided into three divisions: East, Central, and West. Many years, fans talk about some divisions being stronger (having better teams) than other divisions. This may have consequences for the postseason. For instance, in 2012 Tampa Bay won 90 games and did not play in the postseason, while Detroit won only 88 and did play in the postseason. This may have been an oddity, but is there good evidence that in the 2012 season, the American League divisions were significantly different in overall records? Use the following data to complete the test statistic approach whether the mean number of wins per team in the three American League divisions were the same or not. Note that the data are not balanced, as two divisions had five teams, while one had only four. Use \(\alpha\) = .05.

Division | Team | Wins |
---|---|---|

East | NY Yankees | 95 |

East | Baltimore | 93 |

East | Tampa Bay | 90 |

East | Toronto | 73 |

**57**. Three students, Linda, Tuan, and Javier, are given five laboratory rats each for a nutritional experiment. Each rat's weight is recorded in grams. Linda feeds her rats Formula A, Tuan feeds his rats Formula B, and Javier feeds his rats Formula C. At the end of a specified time period, each rat is weighed again, and the net gain in grams is recorded. Using a significance level of 1% and the test statistic approach, test the hypothesis that the three formulas produce the same mean weight gain.

**58**. A grassroots group opposed to a proposed increase in the gas tax claimed that the increase would hurt working-class people the most, since they commute the farthest to work. Suppose that the group randomly surveyed 24 individuals and asked them their daily one-way commuting mileage. The results are in Table \(\PageIndex{11}\). Using a 5% significance level and the test statistic approach, test the hypothesis that the three mean commuting mileages are the same.

**66**. DDT is a pesticide that has been banned from use in the United States and most other areas of the world. It is quite effective, but persisted in the environment and over time became seen as harmful to higher-level organisms. Famously, egg shells of eagles and other raptors were believed to be thinner and prone to breakage in the nest because of ingestion of DDT in the food chain of the birds.

An experiment was conducted on the number of eggs (fecundity) laid by female fruit flies. There are three groups of flies. One group was bred to be resistant to DDT (the RS group). Another was bred to be especially susceptible to DDT (SS). Finally there was a control line of non-selected or typical fruitflies (NS). Here are the data:

RS | SS | NS | RS | SS | NS |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

12.8 | 38.4 | 35.4 | 22.4 | 23.1 | 22.6 |

21.6 | 32.9 | 27.4 | 27.5 | 29.4 | 40.4 |

14.8 | 48.5 | 19.3 | 20.3 | 16 | 34.4 |

23.1 | 20.9 | 41.8 | 38.7 | 20.1 | 30.4 |

34.6 | 11.6 | 20.3 | 26.4 | 23.3 | 14.9 |

19.7 | 22.3 | 37.6 | 23.7 | 22.9 | 51.8 |

22.6 | 30.2 | 36.9 | 26.1 | 22.5 | 33.8 |

29.6 | 33.4 | 37.3 | 29.5 | 15.1 | 37.9 |

16.4 | 26.7 | 28.2 | 38.6 | 31 | 29.5 |

20.3 | 39 | 23.4 | 44.4 | 16.9 | 42.4 |

29.3 | 12.8 | 33.7 | 23.2 | 16.1 | 36.6 |

14.9 | 14.6 | 29.2 | 23.6 | 10.8 | 47.4 |

27.3 | 12.2 | 41.7 |

**Table \(\PageIndex{18}\)**

The values are the average number of eggs laid daily for each of 75 flies (25 in each group) over the first 14 days of their lives. Using a 1% level of significance and the *p*-value approach, are the mean rates of egg selection for the three strains of fruitfly different? If so, in what way? Specifically, the researchers were interested in whether or not the selectively bred strains were different from the non-selected line, and whether the two selected lines were different from each other.

Here is a chart of the three groups:

**67**. The data shown is the recorded body temperatures of 130 subjects as estimated from available histograms.

Traditionally we are taught that the normal human body temperature is 98.6 F. This is not quite correct for everyone. Are the mean temperatures among the four groups different? Conduct both the test statistic and \(p\)-value approach using 99% confidence.
