 Questions 25-27 are related to the following One of the different statistics reported by the Centers for Disease Control regarding incidence of obesity among adults in the United States provides that 29% of men with college degree are obese. The study also reports that 32.1% of men without a college degree are obese. Assume the latter statistic is based on a sample of 1025 men without a college degree. Based on α = 0.05, does the data provide statistically significant evidence that the incidence of obesity among men without a college degree is greater than that among those with a college degree? 25 The test statistic for the hypothesis test is: (Your answer may differ very slightly due to rounding you use.) a 2.19 b 2.34 c 2.48 d 2.71 26 The p-value for the test is, a 0.0062 The incidence of obesity among men without a college degree is greater b 0.0143 The incidence of obesity among men without a college degree is greater c 0.0435 The incidence of obesity among men without a college degree is not greater. d 0.0526 The incidence of obesity among men without a college degree is not greater. 27 Regardless of how you answered the previous question, which of the following statements is correct? a If the proportion of men without a college degree is at most 0.29 and the hypothesis test leads you to conclude that it is greater than 0.28, the you have committed a Type II error. b If the proportion of men without a college degree is greater than 0.29 and the hypothesis test leads you to conclude that it is at most 0.29, the you have committed a Type I error. c If the proportion of men without a college degree is greater than 0.29 and the hypothesis test leads you to conclude that it is at most 0.29, the you have committed a Type II error. d If the proportion of men without a college degree is less than 0.29 and the hypothesis test leads you to conclude that it is at least 0.29, the you have committed a Type I error.

d. If the proportion of men without a college degree is less than 0.29 and the hypothesis test leads you to conclude that it is at least 0.29, the you have committed a Type I error.
