Question

A random sample of 535 college freshman found that 144 bought most of their textbooks from the college's bookstore. A random sample of 266 college seniors found that 37 bought their textbooks from the college's bookstore. You wish to test the claim that the proportion of all freshman that purchase most of their textbooks from the college's bookstore is not equal to the proportion of all seniors at a significance level of α=0.01α=0.01. Round answers to 4 decimal places. Assume the freshman are group one and seniors are group two.

What are the correct hypotheses?

H_{0}: Select an answer x̅₂ p μ₂ σ₁ x̅₁ μ₁ p₂ p₁ Correct ?
= > ≥ ≤ ≠ < Correct Select an answer x̅₂ σ₂ p₁ p p₂ μ₂ 0 x̅₁
μ₁ Correct

H_{1}: Select an answer p p₁ μ₁ σ₁ μ₂ x̅₁ p₂ x̅₂ Correct ?
≠ > = ≥ < ≤ Correct Select an answer p 0 x̅₁ μ₂ p₁ μ₁ σ₁ x̅₂
p₂ Correct

Based on the hypotheses, find the following:

Test Statistic = Correct

Critical-value = ±±

The test statistic is: Select an answer in the critical region
not in the critical region Correct .

The correct decision is to Select an answer accept the alternative
hypothesis reject the null hypothesis reject the claim fail to
reject the null hypothesis accept the null hypothesis Correct
.

The correct summary would be: Select an answer There is not enough
evidence to reject There is enough evidence to support There is not
enough evidence to support There is enough evidence to reject
Correct the claim that the proportion of all freshman that purchase
most of their textbooks from the college's bookstore is not equal
to the proportion of all seniors.

Answer #1

A new beta-blocker medication is being tested to treat high
blood pressure. Subjects with high blood pressure volunteered to
take part in the experiment. 160 subjects were randomly assigned to
receive a placebo and 210 received the medicine. High blood
pressure disappeared in 100 of the controls and in 112 of the
treatment group. Test the claim that the new beta-blocker medicine
is effective at a significance level of αα = 0.05.

The US Department of Energy reported that 45% of homes were
heated by natural gas. A random sample of 300 homes in Oregon found
that 170 were heated by natural gas. Test the claim that proportion
of homes in Oregon that were heated by natural gas is different
than what was reported. Use a 5% significance level. Give answer to
at least 4 decimal places.

he work week for adults in the US that work full time is
normally distributed with a mean of 47 hours. A newly hired
engineer at a start-up company believes that employees at start-up
companies work more on average then most working adults in the US.
She asks 12 engineering friends at start-ups for the lengths in
hours of their work week. Their responses are shown in the table
below. Test the claim using a 10% level of significance. Give...

You are testing the claim that the mean GPA of night students is
different from the mean GPA of day students. You sample 25 night
students, and the sample mean GPA is 2.23 with a standard deviation
of 0.93. You sample 60 day students, and the sample mean GPA is
2.05 with a standard deviation of 0.54. Test the claim using a 10%
level of significance. Assume the population standard deviations
are unequal and that GPAs are normally distributed.

You are conducting a study to see if the proportion of men over
the age of 50 who regularly have their prostate examined is
significantly less than 0.3. A random sample of 726 men over the
age of 50 found that 205 have their prostate regularly examined. Do
the sample data provide convincing evidence to support the claim?
Test the relevant hypotheses using a 1% level of significance. Give
answer to at least 4 decimal places.

The mean age when smokers first start is 13 years old with a
population standard deviation of 1.8 years. A researcher thinks
that smoking age has significantly changed since the invention of
ENDS—electronic nicotine delivery systems. A survey of smokers of
this generation was done to see if the mean age has changed. The
sample of 34 smokers found that their mean starting age was 12.2
years old. Do the data support the claim at the 10% significance
level?

The US Department of Energy reported that 46% of homes were
heated by natural gas. A random sample of 300 homes in Oregon found
that 138 were heated by natural gas. Test the claim that proportion
of homes in Oregon that were heated by natural gas is different
than what was reported. Use a 1% significance level. Give answer to
at least 4 decimal places.

Question 3
A college professor claims the proportion of students that
complete a homework assignment is 70%. To
test this claim, a random sample of students are monitored and
checked if they completed the home the algebra class.
Assume that the test statistic for this hypothesis test is
−1.73.
Since this is a two tailed hypothesis test, assume that the
critical values for this hypothesis test are −1.96 and 1.96.
Come to a decision for the hypothesis test and interpret...

A college instructor claims that the proportion of students who
will fail the final exam is less than 10%.
To test this claim, a random sample of student results on the final
exam is monitored.
Assume that the test statistic for this hypothesis test is
−2.13.
Assume the critical value for this hypothesis test is
−1.645.
Come to a decision for the hypothesis test and interpret
your results with respect to the original claim.

An education researcher claims that
58%
of college students work year-round. In a random sample of
300
college students,
