Question

According to a? study, 66?% of all males between the ages of 18 and 24 live at home. ? (Unmarried college students living in a dorm are counted as living at? home.) Suppose that a survey is administered and 168 of 227 respondents indicated that they live at home.? (a) Use the normal approximation to the binomial to approximate the probability that at least 168 respondents live at home.? (b) Do the results from part? (a) contradict the? study? ?

(a) ?P(X greater than or equals 168?)=

Answer #1

a&b)

Here we have to use the z test

The formula to calculate the z value is

p=168/227

q=1-p=1-168/227 = 59/227

z= (p-p_{o})/sqrt(p*q/n)
=(168/227-0.66)/sqrt((168/227*59/227)/(227)) =2.751225

So from the z table for 95% conf level the range is +/-1.96 (look for 2.5%area for let and right tail from z table and check the z vale for that) while the z value calculated 2.75 is not falling in the range provided here 2.75 is not in the range of -/+1.96

So here we can coclude that the results are contradicting the study

P(X>=168) = P(Z>=2.75) From the z table we look for the
area under the curve from z=2.75 till z=inf and we get 0.002979763
so we say that **0.002979763** is the probability of
X>=168

Hope you like the analysis. Please **upvote** if it
has really helped you. Good Luck!!

According to a study,
52%
of all males between the ages of 18 and 24 live at home.
(Unmarried college students living in a dorm are counted as living
at home.) Suppose that a survey is administered and
153
of
249
respondents indicated that they live at home. (a) Use the
normal approximation to the binomial to approximate the probability
that at least
153153
respondents live at home. (b) Do the results from part (a)
contradict the study?
(a)...

According to a study 50% of all males between the ages 18 and 24
live at home. suppose that a survey is administered and 127 of 226
respondents indicated that they live at home. a) use the normal
approximation to the binomial to approximate the probability that
at least 127 respondents live at home b) do the results for a)
contradict the study?

According to a study, 78% of all ages 18-29 years had
broadband internet access at random home in 2011. A researcher
wanted to estimate the proportion of undergraduates college student
(18-23) with access, so she randomly sampled 184 undergraduates and
found that 161 had access. Estimate the true proportion with
99%confidence.
