Question

A study of 50 American adults was taken and found that the mean number of times they went to the movies in the past 6 months was 9.5 with standard deviation 1.6. This study was to performed to determine if this value has changed since 2000 when the mean was 10 every 6 months.

A)What type of hypothesis test should be performed here?

B) State the null hypothesis. and the the alternative hypothesis.

C)Give your p-value.

D)State your conclusion and interpretation.

Answer #1

A study of 45 American adults was taken and found that the mean
number of times they went to the movies in the past 6 months was
9.2 with standard deviation 1.5. This study was to performed to
determine if this value has changed since 2000 when the mean was 10
every 6 months.
Step 4 of 5: Give your p-value.
Step 5 of 5: State your conclusion and interpretation.

A study was conducted in order to estimate μ, the mean number of
weekly hours that U.S. adults use computers at home. Suppose a
random sample of 81 U.S. adults gives a mean weekly computer usage
time of 8.5 hours and that from prior studies, the population
standard deviation is assumed to be σ = 3.6 hours.
A similar study conducted a year earlier estimated that μ, the
mean number of weekly hours that U.S. adults use computers at home,...

1 . A study of 5,000 American women was taken to determine the
mean number of children per household. Samples of 100 were taken by
state. The average American household, as reported by women,
contains 2.1 children with a standard deviation of 1.87. What would
be the mean of the sampling distribution of the sample means? (If
rounding is necessary, round to four decimal places).

mean number...

According to a study of employed U.S. adults ages 18 and over, the
mean number of workdays missed due to illness or injury in the past
12 months is 3.5 days. You randomly select 25 employed U.S. adults
ages 18 and over and find that the mean number of workdays missed
is 4 days. Assume the population standard deviation is 1.5 days and
the population is normally distributed. Is there enough evidence to
doubt the study’s claim at a =...

Angela and Mary Anne feel like their school is very Democratic,
more so than most places in the country. They survey to find that
of 145 students, 98 identify as Democrats. Using the current
congressional percentage (53%) as a point of comparison, and
significance level 0.04, answer the following.
Step 1 of 6: What type of hypothesis test should be performed
here?
Step 2 of 6: State the null hypothesis.
Step 3 of 6: State the alternative hypothesis.
Step 4...

Each person in random samples of 250 male and 250 female working
American adults was asked how long, in minutes, they typically
spend on their lunch break. The males averaged 39.6 minutes with a
standard deviation of 24.3 minutes. The females averaged 37.3
minutes with a standard deviation of 24.0 minutes. Is there
convincing evidence that the mean lunch break times for male and
female working American adults differ? (a) State the null and
alternative hypotheses to be tested. (b)...

The American Bar Association reports that the mean length of
time for a hearing in juvenile court is 25 minutes. Assume that
this is your population mean. As a lawyer who practices in the
juvenile court, you think that the average hearing is much shorter
than this. You take a random sample of 20 other lawyers who do
juvenile work and ask them how long their last case in juvenile
court was. The mean hearing length for this sample of...

6.16 Is college worth it? Part I: Among a
simple random sample of 331 American adults who do not have a
four-year college degree and are not currently enrolled in school,
48% said they decided not to go to college because they could not
afford school.
(a) A newspaper article states that only a minority of the
Americans who decide not to go to college do so because they cannot
afford it and uses the point estimate from this survey...

suppose n = 13 samples are taken from a stream; the mean
pollutant level is 16.7 mg/l, and the standard deviation is 5.1.
Use the p-value approach and a significance level of 0.05 to test
the hypothesis that the true mean is no different than the ‘normal’
level of 14.2 mg/l. Write down the null and alternative hypotheses,
find the test statistic and the p-value, and state your
conclusion.

Q1:A research study claims that the average mean that the kids
start walking is almost 13 months. A researcher want to check if
the claim is true or false. A random sample of 20 kids was selected
randomly, with average mean and standard deviation 14 and 1 month
respectively. Check whether the hypothesis is true or false give
that t-tabulated =2.093
Q2: Resolve q1 if the sample size is 40
Q3:Suppose a sample of 16 light trucks is randomly selected...
