50% of students entering four-year colleges receive a degree within six years. Is this percent larger than for students who play intramural sports? 148 of the 269 students who played intramural sports received a degree within six years. What can be concluded at the level of significance of αα = 0.05?

1. For this study, we should use Select an answer z-test for a population proportion t-test for a population mean
2. The null and alternative hypotheses would be:
Ho: ? μ p  ? ≠ = < >   (please enter a decimal)
H1: ? p μ  ? > < = ≠   (Please enter a decimal)
3. The p-value is ? > ≤  αα
4. Based on this, we should Select an answer fail to reject accept reject  the null hypothesis.
5. Thus, the final conclusion is that ...
• The data suggest the population proportion is not significantly larger than 50% at αα = 0.05, so there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the population proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is equal to 50%.
• The data suggest the population proportion is not significantly larger than 50% at αα = 0.05, so there is not sufficient evidence to conclude that the population proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is larger than 50%.
• The data suggest the populaton proportion is significantly larger than 50% at αα = 0.05, so there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the population proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is larger than 50%
6. Interpret the p-value in the context of the study.
• There is a 4.99% chance that more than 50% of all students who played intramural sports received a degree within six years.
• If the population proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is 50% and if another 269 students who played intramural sports are surveyed then there would be a 4.99% chance that more than 55% of the 269 students surveyed received a degree within six years
• If the sample proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is 55% and if another 269 students who played intramural sports are surveyed then there would be a 4.99% chance of concluding that more than 50% of all students who played intramural sports received a degree within six years.
• There is a 4.99% chance of a Type I error.
7. Interpret the level of significance in the context of the study.
• There is a 5% chance that aliens have secretly taken over the earth and have cleverly disguised themselves as the presidents of each of the countries on earth.
• If the population proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is larger than 50% and if another 269 students who played intramural sports are surveyed then there would be a 5% chance that we would end up falsely concluding that the proportion of all students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is equal to 50%.
• There is a 5% chance that the proportion of all students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is larger than 50%.
• If the population proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is 50% and if another 269 students who played intramural sports are surveyed then there would be a 5% chance that we would end up falsely concluding that the proportion of all students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is larger than 50%

1. The data suggest the populaton proportion is significantly larger than 50% at αα = 0.05, so there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the population proportion of students who played intramural sports who received a degree within six years is larger than 50%
