Question

A Gallop Poll reports that 60% of adults fear public speaking. A student believes that the proportion among her classmates is SIGNIFICANTLY higher. She does a survey of 40 classmates and finds that 30 of them fear public speaking. Perform a hypothesis test at the 5% significance level.

State the Null Hypothesis, Alternative Hypothesis, and the p-value for the hypothesis test.

Then state your Decision (Reject H0 or Do Not Reject H0) and your Conclusion.

Answer #1

Solution :

This hypothesis test is a right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H_{0} : p = 0.60

H_{a} : p > 0.60

= x / n = 40 / 30 = 0.75

Test statistic = z

=
- P_{0} / [P_{0
*} (1 - P_{0} ) / n]

= 0.75 - 0.60 / [(0.60 * 0.40) / 40]

= 1.936

P-value = 0.0264

= 0.05

P-value <

Reject the null hypothesis (H0)

Toastmasters International cites a report by Gallup Poll that
40% of Americans fear public speaking. A student believes that less
than 40% of students at her school fear public speaking. She
randomly surveys 361 schoolmates and finds that 137 report they
fear public speaking. Conduct a hypothesis test at the 5% level to
determine if the percent at her school is less than 40%. Note: If
you are using a Student's t-distribution for the problem, you may
assume that the...

In a previous poll, 44% of adults with children under the age of
18 reported that their family ate dinner together seven nights a
week. Suppose that, in a more recent poll, 478 of 1141 adults with
children under the age of 18 reported that their family ate dinner
together seven nights a week. Is there sufficient evidence that the
proportion of families with children under the age of 18 who eat
dinner together seven nights a week has decreased?...

In a recent poll of 745 randomly selected adults, 586 said that
it is morally wrong to not report all income on tax returns. Use a
0.01 significance level to test the claim that 75% of adults say
that it is morally wrong to not report all income on tax returns.
Identify the null hypothesis, alternative hypothesis, test
statistic, P-value, conclusion about the null hypothesis, and
final conclusion that addresses the original claim. Use the
P-value method. Use the normal...

In a Gallup poll of 2500 adults in the United States, 75% of the
respondents said that they log in to social media applications
daily.
(a) How many of the respondents in the Gallup poll said they log
in to social media applications daily?
(b) Find a 90% confidence interval for the population
proportion. Interpret the interval.
(c) Using the same sample, test the claim that
more than 80% of adults check their social media
accounts daily at the 0.01...

A polling agency reports that over 16% of U.S. adults are
without health care coverage. In a random survey of 1420 U.S.
adults, 256 said they did not have health care coverage. At α = 2%,
is there enough evidence to support the agency’s claim?
State the null and alternative hypotheses and identify which
represents the claim.
Determine whether the hypothesis test is left-tailed,
right-tailed, or two-tailed. Explain your reasoning and sketch the
graph of the problem.
Find the p-value...

The proportion of people that own cats is 60%. A veterinarian
believes that this proportion is larger than 60% and surveys 400
people. Test the veterinarian's claim at the α=0.10 significance
level.

In a recent poll 1040randomly selected adults were asked whether
they approve of labor unions;66% said yes. In 1936, about 69% of
adults approved of labor unions. Perform a significance testto
determine if the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that
the percentage of adults who approve of labor unions has decreased
since 1936? a) State Ho, Ha, and whether the test is two-tailed,
left-tailed, or right-tailed.b) Calculate the test statistic.(Round
your answer to the hundredths place.)c) Calculate the
p-value.(Round...

In 2013, the Gallup Poll asked 1031 U.S. adults whether they
believed that people should pay sales tax on items purchased over
the internet. Of these, 443 said they supported such a tax. Does
the survey provide convincing evidence that less than 45% of U.S.
adults favor an internet sales tax? Use the α=0.05 level of
significance and the P-value method with the TI-84 Plus
calculator.
a. state null and alternative hypothesis. what tail is the
hypothesis test?
b. Compute...

A poll of 1350 adults
in the United States asked how much confidence they had in banks. A
total of 203 adults said they had a great deal of confidence. An
economist claims that less than 15% of U.S. adults have a great
deal of confidence in banks. Can you conclude that the economist's
claim is true? Use the α = 0.01 level of significance.

Some faculty believe that college students get less than 7 hours
of sleep per night on average. A survey of 30 students found an
average of 6.5 hours of sleep with a standard deviation of 1.8
hours. Are the faculty justified in their belief? Test this
hypothesis at the 5% significance level.
State the Null Hypothesis, Alternative Hypothesis, and the
p-value for the hypothesis test.
Then state your Decision (Reject H0 or Do Not Reject H0) and
your Conclusion.
