Question

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, the number of hours of TV viewing per week is higher among adult women than adult men. A recent study showed women spent an average of 30 hours per week watching TV, and men, 22 hours per week. Assume that the distribution of hours watched follows the normal distribution for both groups, and that the standard deviation among the women is 4.1 hours and is 5.0 hours for the men. What percent of the women watch TV less than 35 hours per week? (Round your z-score computation and final answer to 2 decimal places.) What percent of the men watch TV more than 18 hours per week? (Round your z-score computation and final answer to 2 decimal places.) How many hours of TV do the four percent of women who watch the most TV per week watch? Find the comparable value for the men. (Round your answers to 3 decimal places.)

Answer #1

**Solution:-**

**a) The percent of the women watch TV less than 35 hours
per week is 0.889.**

Mean = 30, S.D = 4.1

**By applying normal distruibution:-**

z = 1.22

P(z < 1.22) = 0.889.

**b) The percent of the men watch TV more than 18 hours
per week is 0.788.**

Mean = 22, S.D = 5.0

By applying normal distruibution:-

z = - 0.80

**P(z > - 0.80) = 0.788**

**c) The four percent of women who watch the most TV per
week watch is 37.18.**

p-value for the top 4% = 0.96

z-score for the p-value = 1.751

By applying normal distruibution:-

**x = 37.18**

**d) The comparable value for the men is
30.755.**

p-value for the top 4% = 0.96

z-score for the p-value = 1.751

By applying normal distruibution:-

**x = 30.755**

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, the number
of hours of TV viewing per week is higher among adult women than
adult men. A recent study showed women spent an average of 29 hours
per week watching TV, and men, 24 hours per week. Assume that the
distribution of hours watched follows the normal distribution for
both groups, and that the standard deviation among the women is 4.9
hours and is 5.4 hours for the men.

According to the South Dakota Department of Health, the mean
number of hours of TV viewing per week is
higher among adult women than men. A recent study showed women
spent an average of 34 hours per week
watching TV and men 29 hours per week (
www.state.sd.us/DOH/Nutrition/TV.pdf). Assume that the
distribution of hours watched follows the normal distribution
for both groups, and that the standard deviation
among the women is 4.5 hours and is 5.1 hours for the men....

According to a study of TV viewing habits, the average number of
hours an American over the age of 2 watches TV per week is 44. The
population standard deviation is 16 hours. If a sample of 64
Americans over the age of 2 are randomly selected, what is the
standard error of the mean?

TV advertising agencies face increasing challenges in reaching
audience members because viewing TV programs via digital streaming
is gaining in popularity. A poll reported that 56% of 2343 American
adults surveyed said they have watched digitally streamed TV
programming on some type of device.
(a) Calculate and interpret a confidence interval at the 99%
confidence level for the proportion of all adult Americans who
watched streamed programming up to that point in time. (Round your
answers to three decimal places.)...
