## Biostatistics Homework 3

These data are taken from the Carnegie Mellon Data and Story Libary: http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/DASL/ The orginal data came from: Chambers, Cleveland, Kleiner, and Tukey. (1983). Graphical Methods for Data Analysis. Wadsworth International Group, Belmont, CA, 351. Original Source: Simpson, Alsen, and Eden. (1975).

Out of 52 clouds, 26 were chosen at random to be seeded with silver nitrate in order to increase rainfall production. The data are as follows in units of acre-feet (volume).

- Test whether seeding increased rainfall by log transforming the data. Give the corresponding one-sided 95% confidence interval for the
** percentage increase** in median rainfall production in the seeded clouds as compared to the unseeded ones.
- Test whether seeding increased rainfall by using non-parametric rank tests. Give the corresponding one-sided 95% confidence interval for the difference in median rainfall production between the seeded clouds and the unseeded ones.
