Question

A provost thinks that the mean age of students at his college is not 21.2, like it was last school year. In a random sample of 18 students, the mean age was 22.5 and the standard deviation was 1.3. Test the provost’s claim. Use α = 0.10. a 1-6) Give the hypotheses for H0 (a1, a2 and a3) and H1 (a4, a5 and a6) H0 a1) µ or p a2) =, ≥, ≤ a3) Number H1 a4) µ or p a5) ≠, >, < a6) Number b) Calculate the test statistic. t = _____ (Round your answer to 3 decimals.) Number c 1-3) Formulate the decision rule for the critical value approach. Reject H0 if (c1 c2 c3) c1) |t| or |p| c2) > or < c3) Number d 1) Make a decision(d1). d1) reject Ho or do not reject Ho e1-2) Give your conclusion. At α = .___, there (is/is not) enough evidence to conclude that the mean age of students at his college is not 21.2, like it was last school year. e1) Number e2) is or is not

Answer #1

Below are the null and alternative Hypothesis,

Null Hypothesis, H0: μ = 21.2

Alternative Hypothesis, Ha: μ ≠ 21.2

b)

Test statistic,

t = (xbar - mu)/(s/sqrt(n))

t = (22.5 - 21.2)/(1.3/sqrt(18))

t = 4.243

c)

Rejection Region

This is two tailed test, for α = 0.1 and df = 17

Critical value of t are -1.74 and 1.74.

Hence reject H0 if t < -1.74 or t > 1.74

d)

reject Ho

e)

At α = 0.1, there (is) enough evidence to conclude that the mean age of students at his college is not 21.2, like it was last school year.

Employees of a certain company took a mean of 6.8 vacation days
in 2016. The CEO of the company believes that in 2017 the average
number of sick days was less than 6.8. A sample of 52 employees
took a mean of 6.6 days in 2017, σ is known to be equal to 1.7. At
α = 0.02, test the CEO’s claim.

The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) believes that
the average daily amount of calcium that teenagers consume is
greater than 1000 mg. A random sample of 40 teenagers had an
average of 1011 mg. The population standard deviation is known to
be equal to 31.5 mg. Test to see if the average daily amount of
calcium that teenagers consume is greater than 1000 mg by using α =
0.025.

a3)...

A student will randomly select 5 cards from a deck of 52 cards.
Each card is uniquely identified by a label which is a combination
of a letter (one of the following: A, B, C, D) followed by a number
(one of the following: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13).
The labels on the cards are A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9,
A10, A11, A12, A13, B1, B2, B3, B4,...

A recent national survey found that high school students watched
an average (mean) of 7.1 movies per month with a population
standard deviation of 1.0. The distribution of number of movies
watched per month follows the normal distribution. A random sample
of 33 college students revealed that the mean number of movies
watched last month was 6.2. At the 0.05 significance level, can we
conclude that college students watch fewer movies a month than high
school students?
State the null...

A recent national survey found that high school students watched
an average (mean) of 7.6 movies per month with a population
standard deviation of 0.5. The distribution of number of movies
watched per month follows the normal distribution. A random sample
of 41 college students revealed that the mean number of movies
watched last month was 7.0. At the 0.05 significance level, can we
conclude that college students watch fewer movies a month than high

A recent national survey found that high school students watched
an average (mean) of 7.6 DVDs per month with a population standard
deviation of 0.5 hours. The distribution of times follows the
normal distribution. A random sample of 61 college students
revealed that the mean number of DVDs watched last month was 7.0.
At the 0.01 significance level, can we conclude that college
students watch fewer DVDs a month than high school students? Use α

The mean age for all Foothill College students for a recent
Fall term was 33.2. The population standard deviation has been
pretty consistent at 15. Suppose that twenty-five Winter students
were randomly selected. The mean age for the sample was 30.4. We
are interested in the true mean age for Winter Foothill College
students. Let X = the age of a Winter Foothill College
student.
Construct a 95% Confidence Interval for the true mean age of
Winter Foothill College students...
