B) Find the critical value(s)

C) Compute the test value

D) Make the decision

E) Summarize the results

A survey found that the average commute time to work is 25.4 minutes. A researcher feels that the commute time in her city is longer. She randomly selects 25 commuters and finds the average time is 26.7 with a standard deviation of 5.3. Is the researcher’s claim correct at ? The variable is normally distributed.

Answer #1

Solution :

= 25.4

= 26.7

s =5.3

n = 25

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H0 : = 25.4

Ha : > 25.4

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / s / n

= (26.7 - 25.4) / 5.3 / 2

= 1.263

p(t > 1.263) = 1-P (t< 1.263 ) = 0.1094

P-value = 0.1094

The researcher’s claim is correct .

AVALANCHE The average avalanche will leave a depth of snow of
180.009 inches, according to meteorologists ( with a stdev = 10.6

A survey of 15 large U.S. Massachusetts cities finds that the
average commute time one way is 30 minutes. An executive feels that
the commute in his city is less and wants to publicize this. He
randomly selects 27 commuters and finds the average is 25.1 minutes
with a standard deviation of 5.4 minutes. At a α = 0.10, is he
correct?

Conduct a hypotheses test using the given
information.
A researcher wishes to test the claim that the average cost of
tuition and fees at a four-year public college is greater than
$5700. She selects a random sample of 36 four-year public colleges
and finds the mean to be $5950. The population standard deviation
is $659. Is there evidence to support the claim at a significance
level of 0.05?
1. Set up appropriate hypotheses.
2. Compute the test statistic.
3. Compute...

study below. The hypotheses for step 1 are provided. Give the value
of p rounded to the nearest ten-thousandth (to four decimal
places). You can type H0 as Ho.

500 companies exceeds $24 billion. The average revenue for a sample
of n = 50 Fortune 500 companies was x̅ = 31.5 billion dollars.

Is the frequency of cardiovascular procedure related to gender?
The following data were obtained for selected procedures for a
recent year. At α = 0.10. is there sufficient evidence to conclude
a dependent relationship between gender and procedure?

Steps to be covered:
state the hypothesis and identify the
claim
find the critical value from the table and mention the
acceptance range for H0
compute the test value
make the decision to reject or not the null
hypothesis

is no more than $250, but wants to determine the accuracy of this
statistic. The company researcher takes a sample of 64 clerks and
finds that =$252 and s = $10.

a) Identify the claim: state the null and alternative
hypotheses. b) Determine the test: left-tailed, right-tailed, or
two-tailed. c) Identify the degree of freedom and determine the
critical value. d) Graph your bell-shaped curve and label the
critical value. e) Find your standardized test statistic ? and
label it on your graph. f) Decide whether to reject or fail to
reject the null hypothesis. g) Interpret your result.
