Question

A random sample of n = 500 books is selected from a library and the number of words in the title of each book is recorded. The sample mean number of words in the title is 6.2 words. The population variance is 40 words^2 .

Please show how to do each one using R and Rstudio.

a) (2 points) Compute the z-statistic for testing the null hypothesis H0 : µ = 7.

b) (3 points) Perform a level ? = 0.1 test of H0 : µ = 7 vs. the one-sided lesser alternative HA : µ < 7.

c) (2 points) What is the one-sided lesser p-value for the statistic you computed in part a)?

d) (2 points) What is the two-sided p-value for the statistic you computed in part a)?

e) (2 points) Construct a 95% confidence interval for the population mean number of words per title. Hint: recall that a 95% confidence interval is formed by the sample mean ±1.96× standard deviation of the sampling distribution.

f) (1 point) Based on your confidence interval from part e), would a level ? = 0.05 two-sided hypothesis test reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis that the population mean is 6.5 words per title?

Answer #2

a) Given H0 : µ = 7. HA : µ not = 7

b) Given level ? = 0.1

Test for H0 : µ = 7 vs. the one-sided lesser alternative HA : µ < 7

c)

P-value = 0.00234

Here p-value < alpha ( = 0.1 ) so we reject H0

thus we conclude that µ < 7

d) P-value = 0.0047

Here p-value < alpha ( = 0.1 ) so we reject H0

thus we conclude that µ not = 7

e)

f)

Population mean µ (=7) is not in the above 95% confidence interval so we reject H0

Thus we conclude that Population mean µ not =7

The 95% confidence interval for the population mean was
calculated based on a random sample with sample size of n=31 as (50
to 60). Calculate the outcome of a 2 sided alpha=0.05 test based on
the null hypothesis of H0: mean=55, and determine if:
A.We would reject the null hypothesis.
B. We would accept the null hypothesis.
C. We woudl fail to reject the null hypothesis.
D. Not enough information to decide.

A sample is drawn from a population and we estimate that the
two-sided 99% conﬁdence interval on the mean of the population is
1.09007 ≤ µ ≤ 1.40993. One of the following statement is correct,
determine which.
A. We would reject the null hypothesis H0 : µ = 1.1 against the
alternative hypothesis H1 : µ 6= 1.1 at the level of signiﬁcance α
= 1%.
B. We would fail to reject the null hypothesis H0 : µ = 1.5...

A survey was conducted to estimate the mean number of books
(denoted by μ) each university student read in the last year. Among
a random sample of 61 students, the number of books each student
read in the last year was recorded. The sample mean was 7.098 and
the sample standard deviation was 2.644.

A test of H0: µ = 7 versus H1: µ ≠ 7 does
not reject the null hypothesis at the 5% level. If calculated using
the same sample data, which of the following is a possible 95%
confidence interval for the population mean?
a.
9.2 ± 3.4
b.
8.4 ± 1.1
c.
There is not enough information to determine anything about a
95% confidence interval.
d.
6.2 ± 0.5

A sample of n = 4 is selected from a population with µ = 50.
After a treatment is administered to the individuals in the sample,
the mean is found to be M = 55 and the variance is s2 = 64. Conduct
a one-sample t-test to evaluate the significance of the treatment
effect and calculate r2 to measure the size of the treatment
effect. Use a two-tailed test with α = .05. In your response, make
sure to state:...

From a random sample from normal population, we observed sample
mean=84.5 and sample standard deviation=11.2, n = 16, H0: μ = 80,
Ha: μ < 80. State your conclusion about H0 at significance level
0.01. Question 2 options: Test statistic: t = 1.61. P-value =
0.9356. Reject the null hypothesis. There is sufficient evidence to
conclude that the mean is less than 80. The evidence against the
null hypothesis is very strong. Test statistic: t = 1.61. P-value =
0.0644....

The Associate Dean for Library Services at the college wants to
estimate the mean number of times students use the library during a
semester. A sample study of 35 students showed a mean of 11 times
with a standard deviation of 3 times.
A. What is the population mean, using a 95 percent confidence
interval?
B.Illustrate whether or not the finite population correction
factor be used to determine the 95% confidence interval for the
mean number of times students visit...
