FIRST PRINTING

Page 74,Exercise 2.98: Change the three sentences after the table to: "A statistics practitioner recorded the cause of crashes among small commercial aircraft. The data are stored in file Xr02-98. Draw a graph that depicts these data."

Page 75, Exercise 2.114: Change the fourth sentence to "The responses are recorded 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, respectively, and stored in file Xr02-114."

Page 210, 3rd line: Delete ! after n in the denominator in the combinatorial formula. That is, it should be x!(n-x)!

Page 430, 3rd line: The formula for UCL is incorrect. It should be the ratio of the two sample variances multiplied by Falpha/2,nu1-nu2

Page 441, lines 10 and 11: p1 is the death rate with streptokinase and p2 is the death rate with t-PA.

Page 554, Exercise 16.45: There are 9 sports categories listed in the survey (not 6). The additional categories and their codes are 6 = golf, 7 = auto racing, 8 = tennis, and 9 = other.

Appendix C

Exercise 14.2d: Change UCL = $104.55

Exercise 15.74: Correct answer is F = 7.72, p-value = .0070; yes

STUDENT SOLUTIONS MANUAL

Exercise 2.24: Delete part part a, change "b " to "a", and combine parts c and d for the answer to part. d

Exercise 12.46: Change "p-value = .1001" to "p-value = .1001 (Excel)."

Exercise 13.6: The degrees of freedom should be represented by the Greek letter Nu and not by (n - 1)./>

Exercise 14.2d: Change UCL = $104.55

Exercise 15.74: The ANOVA table is incorrect. The correct answer is F = 7.72, p-value = .0070; yes
