Question

A simple random sample of size nequals15 is drawn from a population that is normally distributed. The sample mean is found to be x overbarequals19.6 and the sample standard deviation is found to be sequals6.3. Determine if the population mean is different from 26 at the alpha equals 0.01 level of significance. Complete parts (a) through (d) below. (a) Determine the null and alternative hypotheses. Upper H 0: ▼ sigma mu p ▼ equals greater than not equals less than 26 Upper H 1: ▼ sigma p mu ▼ greater than less than not equals equals 26 (b) Calculate the P-value. P-valueequals nothing (Round to three decimal places as needed.) (c) State the conclusion for the test. A. Reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is greater than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. B. Do not reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is less than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. C. Do not reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is greater than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. D. Reject Upper H 0 because the P-value is less than the alphaequals0.01 level of significance. (d) State the conclusion in context of the problem. There ▼ is is not sufficient evidence at the alpha equals 0.01 level of significance to conclude that the population mean is different from 26.

Answer #1

a)

null hypothesis: | μ | = | 26 | |

Alternate Hypothesis: | μ | ≠ | 26 |

b) p value =0.001 ( please try 0.002 if this comes wrong due to rounding error)

c) D. Reject H 0 because the P-value is less than the alpha equals 0.01

There is sufficient evidence at the alpha equals 0.01 level of significance to conclude that the population mean is different from 26.

A psychologist obtains a random sample of 20 mothers in the
first trimester of their pregnancy. The mothers are asked to play
Mozart in the house at least 30 minutes each day until they give
birth. After 5 years, the child is administered an IQ test. It is
known that IQs are normally distributed with a mean of 100. If the
IQs of the 20 children in the study result in a sample mean of
104.4 and sample standard deviation...

Assume that a simple random sample has been selected from a
normally distributed population and test the given claim. Identify
the null and alternative hypotheses, test statistic, P-value, and
state the final conclusion that addresses the original claim.

In a previous year, 51% of females aged 15 and older lived
alone. A sociologist tests whether this percentage is different
today by conducting a random sample of 550 females aged 15 and
older and finds that 287 are living alone. Is there sufficient
evidence at the alphaequals0.01 level of significance to conclude
the proportion has changed? Because np 0 left parenthesis 1 minus
p 0 right parenthesisequals nothing ▼ greater than less than not
equals equals 10, the sample...

It has long been stated that the mean temperature of humans is
98.6degreesF. However, two researchers currently involved in the
subject thought that the mean temperature of humans is less than
98.6degreesF. They measured the temperatures of 67 healthy adults 1
to 4 times daily for 3 days, obtaining 300 measurements. The
sample data resulted in a sample mean of 98.3degreesF and a sample
standard deviation of 1degreesF. Use the P-value approach to
conduct a hypothesis test to judge whether...
