Marks: 3
Imagine I flipped a coin 8 times. From the binomial table, I learned that the probability of getting 7 heads out of 8 flips is .0313 and the probability of getting 8 heads out of 8 flips is .0039. Using this information, please match the following descriptions with the appropriate answer.
What is the probability of getting 7 heads or higher in 8 flips?  Choose…  .0313/.0039  .0313 + .0039  .03132 + .00392  0.50  (.0313)(.0039)  
What is the probability of getting a heads on the first flip?  Choose…  .0313/.0039  .0313 + .0039  .03132 + .00392  0.50  (.0313)(.0039)  
What is the probability of getting 7 heads out of 8 flips and getting 8 heads out of another 8 flips?  Choose…  .0313/.0039  .0313 + .0039  .03132 + .00392  0.50  (.0313)(.0039)

For this problem and other problems in this quiz, rely on the following information. Szalacha, Erkut, Coll, Alarcon, Fields, and Ceder in 2003 investigated the research hypothesis that Puerto Rican children in the US who report or perceive discrimination will have more mental health problems and higher schoolrelated stress than Puerto Rican children who do not perceive discrimination. The researchers presented the table below with scores on the Reynolds Child Depression Scale (RCDS).

Marks: 1
For this problem, and other problems in this quiz, consider the following situation: Researchers randomly assigned 33 participants suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) to the three levels of a treatment IV (cognitive behavioral, group therapy, and no treatment control) and measured outcome by administering a measure of anxiety that ranged in total score from 1 to 50 with higher scores indicating more anxiety. When the researchers analyzed the data, they obtained the following ANOVA summary table with certain values missing. To answer questions pertaining to these data, you will need to solve for the missing values.
