A rank correlation coefficient is to be calculated for a collection of paired data. The values lie between -10 and 10. Which of the following could affect the value of the rank correlation coefficient?
A manufacturer finds that in a random sample of 100 of its CD players, 96% have no defects. The manufacturer wishes to make a claim about the percentage of nondefective CD players and is prepared to exaggerate. What is the highest rate of nondefective CD players that the manufacturer could claim under the following condition?
His claim would not be rejected at the 0.05 significance level if this sample data were used. Assume that a left-tailed hypothesis test would be performed.
Use the given information to find the P-value. Also, use a 0.05 significance level and state the conclusion about the null hypothesis (reject the null hypothesis or fail to reject the null hypothesis).
The test statistic in a left-tailed test is z = -2.05.
Assume that a sample is used to estimate a population proportion p. Find the margin of error E that corresponds to the given statistics and confidence level. Round the margin of error to four decimal places.
90% confidence; the sample size is 1410, of which 40% are successes

Construct a frequency distribution and the corresponding histogram in which the following conditions are satisfied:
– The frequency for the second class is twice the frequency of the first class.
– In the histogram, the area of the bar corresponding to the second class is four times the area of the bar corresponding to the first class.
