All we have to do is make it easier for students graduation rates will go up! pass Math 100, and (a) State some formal hypotheses and obtain a p-value to verify that the difference in graduation rates is statistically significant (b) To convince the administrators of the fallacy of their thinking, you show them a possible disaggregation of the data, based on the students math SAT scores. Fill in the blanks and compute the appropriate percentages math SAT 2500 Math 100 no Math 100 math SAT <500 Math 100 no Math 100 Grad. in 5 yrs 222 84 Doesnt Grad. in 5 vrs Graduate in 5 yrs 5 21 (c) Explain the seeming paradox, in language that the administrators can understand!
