Question

Suppose you have collected data about the number of Veoride bikes laying on the ground each day for 36 consecutive days. Your sample mean is 32 and your sample standard deviation is 10. Veoride keeps track of the number of bikes left on the ground and has determined the population mean is less than or equal to 33. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine if these data provide enough evidence to conclude that the population mean is greater than 33. Show your work and include a full conclusion. Use alpha = 0.05.

Answer #1

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H_{0} : = 33

H_{a} :
> 33

Test statistic = t

= ( - ) / s / n

= (32 - 33) / 10 / 36

Test statistic = -0.6

P-value = 0.7238

= 0.05

P-value >

Fail to reject the null hypothesis .

There is not enough evidence to conclude that the population mean is greater than 33 .

The table below represents data on a variable of
interest collected from a single sample. It is known that the
variable of interest has a mean of 25 in the general population. A
researcher is interested in testing whether the population from
which this sample was selected scores higher than the general
population.

Two random samples (15 scores
each) of data have been taken from the student "raw
score" or true population with independent variable conditions:
sample1 (water consumption) and
sample2 (no water
consumption) and given a
memory assessment [test]. Experimental hypothesis:
Depriving students of water for a week will affect memory
ability. Next, compute the "n," sample mean,
and estimated population variance and standard deviation using
SPSS for both samples and conduct an
independent two-sample t-test (with
summary) to analyze the data/results...

This is the same data as the previous question. Suppose that you
collected data on the grades at a local middle school and you
wanted to know if males were more likely to fail than females.
Using the data shown below, which of the following conclusions
would be a correct conclusion from this study, if we used an alpha
of .05? Round your answer to the nearest 2 decimal places. Pass

Suppose that you have collected a Simple Random Sample (SRS) and
have calculated the following summary statistics from your
data:
:
185
s:
23.75
n:
36
Use the summary statistics in the above table to calculate the
Left-Hand Endpoint (LHEP) for the 95% Confidence Interval (CI)
estimate of , the population variance. Round off your answer to the
third decimal place, if necessary.
The LHEP of the 95% CI for is: Blank 1. Fill in the
blank, read surrounding text.

The time (in number of days) until maturity of a certain variety
of tomato plant is normally distributed with mean = 30 days to
mature and standard deviation = 2.4. I select a simple random
sample of four plants of this variety and measure the time until
maturity. The four times, in days, are: 39, 36, 32, 33.
Conduct the hypotheses test and state the conclusion at
0.1significance level of the test if the maturity time is more...

A set of data was collected involving the number of defective
items found in a random sample of 46 cases of light bulbs produced
during a morning shift at a plant. A manager wants to know if the
mean number of defective bulbs per case is greater than 20 during
the morning shift. She will make her decision using a test with a
level of significance of 0.10. The following information was
determined for the sample of 46 cases: n...

You have been assigned to test the hypothesis that the average
number of hours per week that an American works is higher than the
