    No.of students 6 10 12 10 08

4. Find the missing frequency from the following data given that their A.M. is 7.3
    x 2 6 7 8 9
    f 4 6 12 9 8
5. Explain the following:

    ii) Power of a test and level of significance.

6. Six guinea pigs injected with 0.5 mg of a medication took on the average 15.4 seconds to fall asleep with an unbiased standard deviation 2.2 seconds with six other guinea pigs injected with 1.5 mg of the medication took on the average 11.2 seconds to fall asleep with an unbiased standard deviation of 2.6 seconds. Use the 5% level of significance to test the null hypothesis that the difference in dosage has no effect.
