Question 1

The Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) is a financial model that assumes returns on a portfolio are normally distributed. Suppose a portfolio has an average annual return of 14.7% (i.e., an average gain on 14.7%) with a standard deviation of 33%. A return of 0% means the value of the portfolio doesn't change, a negative return means that the portfolio loses money, and a positive return means that the portfolio gains money. Determine the following:

1. What percentage of years does this portfolio lose money, (i.e. have a return less than 0%)?
2. What is the cutoff for the highest 15% of annual returns with this portfolio?

Question 2

Past experience indicates that because of low morale, a company loses 20 hours a year per employee due to lateness and abstenteeism. Assume that the standard deviation of the population is 6 and normally distributed.

The HR department implemented a new rewards system to increase employee morale, and after a few months it collected a random sample of 20 employees and the annualized absenteeism was 14.

1. Could you confirm that the new rewards system was effective with a 90% confidence?
2. An HR subject matter expert would be very happy if the program could reduce absenteeism by 20% (i.e. to 16 hours). Given the current sampling parameters (sample size of 20 and std. dev. of population is 6), what is the probability that the new rewards system reduced absenteeism to 16 hours and you miss it? (significance level 0.10)

Question 3

Chi-Square Goodness of fit

section 6.3.5
in the OpenIntro Statistics textbook:

Diez, D., Çetinkaya-Rundel, M. & Barr, C (2019). OpenIntro Statistics (4th Ed.).

Given the information in section 6.3.5, write python code for the following:

- Calculate the expected values based on the geometric distribution with a probability of 54.5%
- Compare the expected vs. the observed values from the textbook using the Chi-Square distribution
- Reach a conclusion
