Question

A state executive claims that the average cost of tuition at public colleges is $5700. A researcher wishes to test the claim that this cost is greater than $5700. She selects a random sample of 36 public colleges and finds the mean to be $5950.The population standard deviation is $659. Is there enough evidence to support the claim that the cost of tuition is greater than $5700 at α = 0.05 ?

Answer #1

n =36

Null and alternative hypothesis is

Level of significance = 0.05

Here population standard deviation is known so we use z-test statistic.

Test statistic is

Degrees of freedom = n - 1 = 36 - 1 = 35

α = 0.05

P-value = 0.0114 ( using z table)

P-value , Reject H0

**conclusion :** There is sufficient evidence to
conclude that the average cost of tuition at public
colleges is greater than $5700

Conduct a hypotheses test using the given
information.
A researcher wishes to test the claim that the average cost of
tuition and fees at a four-year public college is greater than
$5700. She selects a random sample of 36 four-year public colleges
and finds the mean to be $5950. The population standard deviation
is $659. Is there evidence to support the claim at a significance
level of 0.05?
1. Set up appropriate hypotheses.
2. Compute the test statistic.

It is claimed that the average cost of tuition and fees at a
four-year public college is greater than $5500. The standard
deviation of college tuitions is known to be $659, and the mean
tuition and fees of a sample of 36 schools is computed to be
$5900.
a. Is this a two-tailed, right-tailed, or left-tailed test?
b. What is H1?
c. What is the test value?
d. Verify or deny the claim with 90% certainty.

A manufacturer claims that the mean lifetime of its lithium
batteries is less than 1500 hours. A homeowner selects 25 of these
batteries and finds the mean lifetime to be 1480 hours with a
standard deviation of 80 hours. Test the manufacturer's claim.
Use α = 0.10.
A.
P-value = 0.112 > 0.10; do not reject H0; There is not enough
evidence support the claim, that mean is less than 1500.
B.
P-value = 0.112 > 0.05; do not reject...

A manufacturer claims that the mean lifetime of its lithium
batteries is less than 1120 hours. A homeowner selects 25 of these
batteries and finds the mean lifetime to be 1100 hours with a
standard deviation of 75 hours. Test the manufacturer's claim.
Use α = 0.01.
A. P-value = 0.110 > 0.01; do not reject H0; There is not
enough evidence support the claim, that mean is less than 1120.
B. P-value = 0.097 > 0.01; do not reject...

A manufacturer claims that the mean lifetime of its lithium
batteries is less than 1520 hours. A homeowner selects 27 of these
batteries and finds the mean lifetime to be 1498 hours with a
standard deviation of 76 hours. Test the manufacturer's claim. Use
α = 0.10.
A. P-value = 0.112 > 0.02; do not reject H0; There is not
enough evidence support the claim, that mean is less than 1500.
B. P-value = 0.072 > 0.05; do not reject...

26% of the general public drinks alcohol once a week. A
researcher claims that adults working in “white collar” jobs have
different drinking habits than the general public. Data is
collected from a random sample of 120 adults with white collar jobs
of which 23 stated that they drank once a week in the last month.
At α = 0.01, is there enough evidence to support the researcher’s
claim? Conduct the appropriate significance test.

The mean annual tuition and fees for a sample of 9 private
colleges was with a standard deviation of A dotplot shows that it
is reasonable to assume that the 1- population is approximately
normal. You wish to test whether the mean tuition and fees for
private colleges is different from .
State a conclusion regarding H0. Use the level of significance.
Question options:
A)
None of the above.
B)
There is not enough information to draw a conclusion.

A local telephone company claims that the average length of a
phone call is 8 minutes in a random sample of 18 calls. The sample
mean was 7.8 minutes and sample standard deviation was 0.5 minutes.
Is there enough evidence to support the company’s claim at
α=0.05.

In 2015, the average cost of attendance at public 2-year
colleges and technical schools across the United States was
$12,260. A researcher wants to know if the 2-year colleges in
Michigan are less expensive. The researcher decides to conduct a
hypothesis test. They take a random sample of 15 such schools in
Michigan and find a sample average of 10420 with a standard
deviation of 1488. Conduct a hypothesis test to determine if the
average cost of attendance at 2-year...
