Question

I need the answer to the following, but not using the P value.

1. A telephone company claims that less than 15% of all college students have their own cell phone plan. A random sample of 70 students revealed that 8 of them had their own plan. Test the company's claim at the 0.05 level of significance.

2. A college statistics instructor claims that the mean age of college statistics students at a local Dallas-based institution is 23. A random sample of 35 college statistics students revealed a mean age of 25.1. The population standard deviation is known to be 4.1 years. Test his claim at the 0.1 level of significance.

3. A random sample of 85 adults ages 18-24 showed that 11 had donated blood within the past year, while a random sample of 254 adults who were at least 25 years old had 18 people who had donated blood within the past year. At the 0.05 level of significance, test the claim that the proportion of blood donors is not equal for these two age groups.

Answer #1

1. Here claim is that p<0.15

So vs

Now

So test statistics is

The z-critical value for a left-tailed test, for a significance level of α=0.05 is

zc=−1.64

*Graphically*

As test statistics do not fall in the rejection region we fail to reject the null hypothesis

Hence we do not have sufficient evidence to support the claim that p<0.15

I need the answer to the following, but not using the P
value.
4. A librarian claims that the mean number of books read per
year by community college students is more than 2.5 books. A random
sample of 33 community college students had read a mean of 3.2
books with a standard deviation of 1.9 books. Test the librarian's
claim at the 0.01 level of significance.
5. A reading group claims that Americans read more as they grow
older....

For each question please state your null and alternative
hypothesis, your p-value and conclusion of your hypothesis test.
You may use your calculator to perform the hypothesis.
A roper Poll claims that 5% of U.S. adults have had vivid dreams
about UFOs. You decide to test this claim and ask a random sample
of 250 U.S. adults whether they have had vivid dreams about UFOs.
Of those surveyed, 8% reply yes. A the .01 significance
level , is there enough...

Researchers collected a simple random sample of the times that
it took 212 college students to earn their bachelor’s degrees. The
sample mean was 4.72 years with a standard deviation of 1.95 years.
(National Center for Education Statistics, 2008) Use a
significance level of 0.05 to test the claim that the mean time for
college students to complete their bachelor’s degrees is more than
4.5 years.

Researchers collected a simple random sample of the times that
it took 81 college students to earn their bachelor’s degrees. The
sample mean was 4.8 years with a standard deviation of 2.2 years.
(National Center for Education Statistics, 2008) Use a significance
level of 0.05 to test the claim that the mean time for college
students to complete their bachelor’s degrees is more than 4.5
years

Find the test statistic, P-value, critical value, and state
the final conclusion about the claim: The mean starting salary for
college graduates who have taken a statistics course is equal to
$46,000. Sample data: n = 65, = $45,678. Assume that s = $9900 and
the significance level is a =0.05

A
student at South Plains College claims that the average cost of
textbook is more than $75 dollars. Test this student’s claim using
a 0.05 level of significance. A random sample of 15 textbooks had
an average price of $78.15 and a standard deviation of $8.80. (8

A college claims that commute times to
the school have a mean of 60 minutes with a standard deviation of
12 minutes. Assume that student commute times at this
college are normally distributed. A statistics student
believes that the variation in student commute times is greater
than 12 minutes. To test this a sample of 71 students in
chosen and it is found that their mean commute time is 58 minutes
with a standard deviation of 14.5 minutes.

An education rehearser claims that at most 5% of working college
students are employed as teachers or teaching assistants. In a
random sample of 300 working college students, 18 of them are
employed as teachers or teaching assistants. Is there enough
evidence to support your thinking at α = 0.05?
1. The proportion of students in the sample who are employed as
teachers or teaching assistants is?
2. Null hypothesis
3. Alternative hypothesis
4. Is Success/Failure condition met?
5. Observed...
