Question

A large software company gives job applicants a test of programming ability and the mean for the test has been 160 in the past. Twenty-five job applicants are selected from one large university and they produce a mean score and standard deviation of 183 and 12, respectively. Use a 0.05 level of significance to test the claim that this sample comes from a population with a mean score greater than 160.

Answer #1

H0: = 160

Ha: > 160

Test Statistic :-

t = ( X̅ - µ ) / (S / √(n) )

t = ( 183 - 160 ) / ( 12 / √(25) )

t = 9.58

Test Criteria :-

Reject null hypothesis if t > t(α, n-1)

Critical value t(α, n-1) = t(0.05 , 25-1) = 1.711

t > t(α, n-1) = 9.5833 > 1.711

Result :- Reject null hypothesis

Conclusion -

We have sufficient evidence to support the claim that population mean score is greater than 160.

A large software company gives job applicants a test of
programming ability and the mean for that test has been 160 in the
past. Twenty-five job applicants are randomly selected from a large
university and they produce a mean score of 183 and a standard
deviation of 12. Use a 5% significance level and the
critical-value method to test whether the mean
score for students from this university is greater than 160. Assume
the population is normally distributed. Correctly state...

A large software company gives job applicants a test of
programming ability and the mean for that test has been 182 in the
past. Twenty five job applicants are randomly selected, and they
produce a sample mean score of 186 and a sample standard deviation
of 12. Use a 5% level of significance to test the claim that this
sample comes from a population with a mean score greater than 182.

A large Software company gives job applicants a test of
programing ability and the mean for that testhas been 180 in the
past with a population std. dev. of 20. A random sample from 35
applicantsshows a mean of 183. Use a 0.5 level of significance to
test the claim that this sample comes from apopulation with a mean
greater than 180.

A large manufacturing firm tests job applicants who recently
graduated from colleges. The test scores are normally distributed
with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 50. If an applicant
is selected at random, what is the probability that he/she has a
score between 438 and 604?

A large manufacturing firm tests job applicants. Test scores are
normally distributed with a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of
50.
-what proportion of people get scores between 400 and 600?
-What proportion of people get higher than 450?

The mean score on a 25-point placement test in mathematics used
for the past two years at a large state university is 14.3. The
placement coordinator wishes to test whether the mean score on a
revised version of the test differs from 14.3. She gives the
revised test to 20 entering freshmen early in the summer; the mean
score is 14.6 with standard deviation 2.4.
a. Perform the test at the 10% level of significance using the
critical value approach....

A test of sobriety involves measuring the subject's motor
skills. Twenty randomly selected sober subjects take the test and
produce a mean score of 37.1 with a standard deviation of 3.7. At
the 0.01 level of significance, test the claim that the true mean
score for all sober subjects is equal to 35.0.
Step 1: State the claim in symbolic form.

A. μ = 35.0
B. μ ≠ 35.0
C. μ < 35.0
D. μ >...
