Question

Dean Halverson recently read that full-time college students study 20 hours each week. She decides to do a study at her university to see if there is evidence that students study an average of more than 20 hours each week. A random sample of 34 students were asked to keep a diary of their activities over a period of several weeks. It was found that the average number of hours that the 34 students studied each week was 21.5 hours. The sample standard deviation of 4.6 hours.

Find the p-value.

The p-value should be rounded to 4-decimal places.

Answer #1

Given that, sample size (n) = 34, sample mean = 21.5 hours

and sample standard deviation (s) = 4.6 hours

The null and alternative hypotheses are,

H0 : μ = 20 hours

Ha : μ > 20 hours

Test statistic is,

=> Test statistic = t = 1.901

Degrees of freedom = 34 - 1 = 33

Using Excel, we get p-value as follows :

Excel Command : =TDIST (1.901, 33, 1) = 0.0330

=> p-value = **0.0330**

Today, full time college students report spending a mean of 27
hours per week on academic activities, both inside and outside of
the classroom. Assume the standard deviation of time spent on
academic activities is 4 hours. If you select a random sample of 50
full-time college students:
A. Describe the shape of the sampling distribution. How do you
know it is this shape?
B. Find the mean and standard deviation for the distribution of
the sample mean (x bar)...

A student organization wondered how many hours per week college
students study during a term. The organization obtained a list of
all students at their university and randomly selected 100 from the
list. They contacted all 100 students and all 100 provided their
best estimate of the number of hours they typically study per week.
A 95% confidence interval for the mean number of hours studied per
week was constructed. Based on this study, to what population can
we make...

4. Study Time. A university states the mean
number of study hours per week for full-time student (12 units +)
should be at least 20 hours. Based on the random sample of weekly
study hours for the 8 full-time students listed below, is the mean
study time for all full-time students less than the recommended
amount? ( use a=.10, assume sample comes from a population that is
normal)
21.8 17.6 21.6
16.9 15.4 19.4 22.6
18.1
Check Assumptions:

Students at a liberal arts college study for an average of 10
hours per week with a standard deviation of 2 hours per week. The
distribution of their study time happens to be uni-modal, symmetric
and bell shaped. Approximately 68% of students study between 8 and
B hours a week.
What is the value of B? Please show steps and excel formula
