Question

1. In the united states the population mean height for 4 year old boys is 39 inches, Suppose a random sample of 32 NON -US 4 year old boys showed a sample mean of 38.2 inches with a standard deviation of 3.1inches. The boys were independently sampled. Assume the heights are normally distributed in the population. Determine weather the population mean for non us boys is significantly different from the US population mean, use a significance level of 5%

Answer #1

Solution :

= 39

= 38.2

s = 3.1

n = 32

This is the two tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H_{0} :
= 39

H_{a} :
39

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / s/ n

= (38.2 - 39) /3.1 / 32

= -1.46

P(z < -1.46 ) = 0.1544

P-value = 0.1544

= 0.05

p = 0.1544 ≥ 0.05, it is concluded that the null hypothesis is not rejected.

There is not enough evidence to claim that the population mean μ is different than 39, at the 0.05 significance level.

In Country A, the population mean height for 3-year-old boys is
39 inches. Suppose a random sample of 15 3-year-old boys from
Country B showed a sample mean of 38.4 inches with a standard
deviation of 4 inches. The boys were independently sampled. Assume
that heights are Normally distributed in the population.
Reject or do not reject Upper H 0 . Choose the correct answer
below.
A. Reject Upper H 0 . The population mean is definitely not 39

In Country A, the population mean height for 3-year-old boys
is 37 inches. Suppose a random sample of 15 3-year-old boys from
Country B showed a sample mean of 36.8 inches with a standard
deviation of 4 inches. The boys were independently sampled. Assume
that heights are Normally distributed in the population. Complete
parts a through c below. a. Determine whether the population mean
for Country B boys is significantly different from the Country A
mean. Use a significance level...

In the US, the population mean height for 3-yr-old boys is 38
inches. Suppose a random sample of 15 non-US 3-yr-old boys showed a
sample mean of 37.2 inches with a standard deviation of 3 inches.
Assume that the heights are normally distributed in the population.
After conducting the hypothesis testing to determine whether the
population mean for non-US boys is significantly different from the
US population mean, we fail to reject the null hypothesis at 0.05
level.
If you...

A. If the population mean height for
3-year-old boys is 37 inches. Suppose a random sample of 15
3-year-old boys from Country B showed a sample mean of 36.1 inches
with a standard deviation of 2 inches. The boys were independently
sampled. Assume that heights are Normally distributed in the
population.
a. Determine whether the population mean for Country B boys is
significantly different from the Country A mean. Use a significance
level of 0.05.
Find the test statistic t =...

The heights of 11-year old boys in the United States are
normally distributed. A random sample of 9 boys
was taken and their mean height (in inches) was 56.67 and their
sample standard deviation was 3 inches. Perform a
hypothesis test at the 10% significance level to determine if the
mean height of 11-year old boys is more than 54
inches. Give the hypotheses, test statistic, rejection
region, P-value, decision, and interpretation.

1) In the country of United States of Heightlandia, the height
measurements of ten-year-old children are approximately normally
distributed with a mean of 56 inches, and standard deviation of 2.6
inches.
What is the probability that the height of a randomly chosen
child is between 61.9 and 62.5 inches?
2) A population of values has a normal distribution with μ=100.2
and σ=6.6. You intend to draw a random sample of size n=182.
