SparkyEParticipantResearch Question: Which NBA Coast ( East or West ) has better basketball teams of the 20172018 season so far?
Population: 1) Eastern NBA teams
2) Western NBA teamsVariable: 1) Player Efficiency Rating (PER).
(PER)=Field Goals, free throws, 3 pointers, assists, rebounds, blocks, and steals minus missed shots turn overs and personal fouls
PER is one number that sums of a players statistical accomplishments .November 11, 2017 at 7:45 pm #45896
Victor SirelsonParticipantDear Group 2,
Did you put your ideas into a good proposal?
November 17, 2017 at 2:47 pm #46000
SparkyEParticipantGuys we need to come up with a proposal over the weekend so we can have it ready by Monday’s class and start the next phase of the project, Rafi can you write on this chat what the prof wanted us to do about gathering the data between the west and east cities?
November 17, 2017 at 10:02 pm #46003
Rafi AhmedParticipantHe suggested to cite the website we will use. I think we will take information from NBA.COM .
I think he also said, we can 10 cities from Eastern teams and Western teams.
I think we could compares those teams.November 18, 2017 at 8:24 pm #46012
Akeeb AliParticipantAlright so it’s basically the same as before, with the same research question and population that sparky posted but we change the variable? Using the top 10 teams from the east and west and using the stats from nba.com we just need a way to compare these teams to see who are at the top. There’s a lot of different ways to do this like the most points scored, most games won(all being based on the team not individually) stuff like that, so we can make graphs of all that to show the stats. We just need to clearly state the proposal.
November 18, 2017 at 10:29 pm #46013
Victor SirelsonParticipantIf I understand your idea correctly, you want to compare a certain statistic for two groups of teams to see which one is higher. You can do this as a hypothesis test on the difference of the two means, where we are interested in the mean value of the statistic averaged over all of the teams in one group compared to the mean for all teams in the other group.
How many teams are there in each group? Possibly as high as 30? or do you need to only take the top 10? More is better.
For your proposal you can include the following analysis proposal. I will explain the details and help you set up the hypothesis test.
The analysis will consist of:
Finding the sample mean and sample standard deviation for each group.
Calculating the mean and standard deviation for the difference in the two sample means, based on the two sample sizes, n1 and n2
Developing a hypothesis test to test whether the difference of mean_1 – mean_2 is significantly different from 0
Calculating a confidence interval for the difference of the two means

TESTING STATICAL HYPOTHESIS
Significance Level, α = 5%
The mean µ1 presents the WLR (won/lost ratio) of Eastern Teams.
The mean µ2 presents the WLR (won/lost ratios) of Western teams.H0 : µ1 = µ2
H1 : first mean, µ1 > Second mean, µ2
S = √(((〖first st.d)〗^2/(sample size,N))+((second st.d)^2/(sample size,N)))
= √(((〖(0.096923)〗^2/10)+((0.122908096)^2/10))
=√(((0.009394/10)+(0.0151064/10))
=√((0.009394 + 0.0151064 )/10)
= 0.0494978787TS = (µ1 – µ2)/S
= ( 0.6053 0.5772)/0.0494978787
= 0.567690679
= 0.5677
(Here a graph will be shown)From the table, z0.5 gives 1.645.
0.5677< 1.645, it means it H0 is not rejected.
1 – 0.7157
= 0.2843P value:
P{z> 0.5677} = 1 – 0.71488
= 0.28512
To reject, H0, need α >0.285.December 5, 2017 at 3:15 am #46211
