Question

I

In a recent survey,

4545%

of employed U.S. adults reported that basic mathematical skills were critical or very important to their job. The supervisor of the job placement office at a 4-year college thinks this percentage has increased due to increased use of technology in the workplace. She takes a random sample of

200200

employed adults and finds that

110110

of them feel that basic mathematical skills are critical or very important to their job. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that the percentage of employed adults who feel basic mathematical skills are critical or very important to their job has increased at the

alpha equals 0.1α=0.1

level of significance?

What are the null and alternative hypotheses?

Answer #1

The sample proportion, = 110/200 = 0.55

____________________________

**The
Hypothesis:**

H0: p = 0.45

Ha: p > :0.45

__________________________________

**The Test
Statistic:**

____________________________

**The p Value:**
The p value (Right tail) for Z = 2.84, is;
**p value = 0.002**

**_____________________________**

Since p value is < (0.1)

**Option A:**
reject H0. There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the number
of employed adults who feel basic mathematical skills are critical
or very important to their job has increased.

In a recent survey,
37%
of employed U.S. adults reported that basic mathematical skills
were critical or very important to their job. The supervisor of the
job placement office at a 4-year college thinks this percentage
has increased due to increased use of technology in the workplace.

In August 2003, 56% of
employed adults in the United States reported that basic
mathematical skills were critical or very important to their job.
The supervisor of the job placement office at a 4-year college
thinks this percentage has increased due to increased use of
technology in the workplace. He takes a random sample of 35
employed adults and finds that 24 of them feel that basic
mathematical skills are critical or very important to their
job.
Consider testing the...

Previously,
4%
of mothers smoked more than 21 cigarettes during their
pregnancy. An obstetrician believes that the percentage of mothers
who smoke 21 cigarettes or more is less than
4%
today. She randomly selects
125125
pregnant mothers and finds that
4
of them smoked 21 or more cigarettes during pregnancy. Test the
researcher's statement at the

An organization surveyed 1 comma 100 adults and asked, "Are you
a total abstainer from, or do you on occasion consume, alcoholic
beverages?" Of the 1 comma 100 adults surveyed, 362 indicated that
they were total abstainers. Sixty years later, the same question
was asked of 1 comma 100 adults and 410 indicated that they were
total abstainers. Has the proportion of adults who totally abstain
from alcohol changed? Use the alpha equals 0.05 level of
significance. Determine the null...

In a clinical trial,
22
out of
869
patients taking a prescription drug daily complained of flulike
symptoms. Suppose that it is known that

Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that more than
2.1%
of this drug's users experience flulike symptoms as a side
effect at the

A 2010 survey by a reputable automotive website found that
6868?%
of vehicle owners avoided automotive maintenance and repairs.
Suppose a company would like to perform a hypothesis test to
challenge this finding. From a random sample of
110110
vehicle? owners, it was found that
8484
avoid maintenance repairs. Using
alpha?equals=0.020.02?,
answer parts a and b below.

A survey of 1,570 randomly selected adults showed that 541 of
them have heard of a new electronic reader. The accompanying
technology display results from a test of the claim that 34% of
adults have heard of the new electronic reader. Use the normal
distribution as an approximation to the binomial distribution, and
assume a 0.01 significance level to complete parts (a) through
(e).
a. Is the test two-tailed, left-tailed, or right-tailed?
Right tailed test

In a recent poll, 801 adults were asked to identify their
favorite seat when they fly, and 476 of them chose a window seat.
Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the majority
of adults prefer window seats when they fly. Identify the null
hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test statistic, P-value,
conclusion about the null hypothesis, and final conclusion that
addresses the original claim. Use the P-value method and the
normal distribution as an approximation to the binomial...

In an issue of Parade Magazine, the editors
reported on a national survey on law and order. One question asked
of the 2512 U.S. adults who took part was whether they believed
that juries "almost always" convict the guilty and free the
innocent. Only 578 said that they did. Do the data provide
sufficient evidence to conclude that less than one in four
Americans believe that juries "almost always" convict the guilty
and free the innocent?
a.
