Question

A random sample of 16 students selected from the student body of
a large university had an average age of 25 years and a standard
deviation of 2 years. We want to use hypothesis testing to
determine if the average age of all the students at the university
is significantly more than 24. Assume the distribution of the
population of ages is normal.

The value of the test statistic is

The *p*-value is between

a. .01 and .02

b. .02 and .025

c. .025 and .05

d. .05 to .10

e. None of these are correct

Answer #1

Solution :

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H_{0} :
= 24

H_{a} :
> 24

Test statistic =t

= ( - ) / s / n

= (25 - 24) / 2 / 16

= 2

n = 16

df = 16 - 1 = 15

0.025 < P-value < 0.05

0.025 and 0.05

c)

A random sample of 16 students selected from the student body of
a large university had an average age of 25 years and a standard
deviation of 2 years. We want to determine if the average age of
all the students at the university is significantly more than 24.
Assume the distribution of the population of ages is
normal. At 95% confidence, it can be concluded that the
mean age is
a.
significantly different from 24
b.
not significantly different from...

A random sample of 16 students selected from the student body of
a large university had an average age of 25 years and a standard
deviation of 2 years. We want to determine if the average age of
all the students at the university is less than equal to or greater
than 24. Assume the distribution of the population of ages is
normal. Using α = .05, it can be concluded that the population mean
age is
not different than...

At a local university, a sample of 49 evening students was
selected in order to determine whether the average age of the
evening students is significantly different from 21. The average
age of the students in the sample was 23 years. The population
standard deviation is known to be 3.5 years. Use a
0.05 level of significance (z 0.05= -1.64 and
z0.95 = 1.64). Show all four steps of the hypothesis testing. show

a local university, a sample of 49 evening students was
selected in order to determine whether the average age of the
evening students is significantly different from 21. The average
age of the students in the sample was 23 with a standard deviation
of 3.5. Determine the p-value and test these hypotheses.
Let a = .05.

5. The student body of a large university consists of 60% female
students. A random sample of 8 students is selected. What is the
probability that among the students in the sample at least 6 are
male? a. 0.0413 b. 0.0079 c. 0.0007 d. 0.0499
6. In a large class, suppose that your instructor tells you that
you need to obtain a grade in the top 10% of your class to get an A
on ExamX. From past experience, your...

At Winchester University ( a large university) 43% of the
student body belongs to an ethnic minority. Suppose that 25
students are selected at random; that is, each student is
independent of the other students. Let the random variable X count
the number of students out of 25 that belong to an ethnic
minority
A) State the distribution of the random variable given above
B) Compute the probability that at most 7 of the 25 selected
students belong to an...

A random group of students was selected from a large student
conference to analyze their class in school. Is there evidence to
reject the hypothesis that the number of students is equally
distributed between the four classes, at = .05?
Freshman: 9
Sophomore: 9
Junior: 15
Senior: 23
A. There is not evidence to reject the claim that students are
equally distributed between the four classes because the test value
7.815 < 9.429
B. There is evidence to reject the...

At a large University to graduation rate for student
body was reported to be 0.65 we want to compare the center spread
and shape of the distribution of sample proportion graduate in 4
random samples of 8 students compared to the distribution for
random samples of 80 students my question is what is the center of
the distribution for samples of size 8? Another question is what is
the center of the distribution for samples of size 80?

A student is randomly selected from a large
university.
Define the events:
M= {the student owns a mobile phone}
I = {the student owns an iPad}.
Which of the following is the correct notation for the
probability that the student does not own a mobile phone, given
that they own an ipad.
