Question

This problem is based on information taken from *The Merck
Manual* (a reference manual used in most medical and nursing
schools). Hypertension is defined as a blood pressure reading over
140 mm Hg systolic and/or over 90 mm Hg diastolic. Hypertension, if
not corrected, can cause long-term health problems. In the
college-age population (18-24 years), about 9.2% have hypertension.
Suppose that a blood donor program is taking place in a college
dormitory this week (final exams week). Before each student gives
blood, the nurse takes a blood pressure reading. Of 194 donors, it
is found that 29 have hypertension. Do these data indicate that the
population proportion of students with hypertension during final
exams week is higher than 9.2%? Use a 5% level of significance.

(a) What is the level of significance?

State the null and alternate hypotheses. Will you use a
left-tailed, right-tailed, or two-tailed test?

*H*_{0}: *p* = 0.092;
*H*_{1}: *p* ≠ 0.092;
two-tailed*H*_{0}: *p* = 0.092;
*H*_{1}: *p* > 0.092;
right-tailed *H*_{0}:
*p* = 0.092; *H*_{1}: *p* < 0.092;
left-tailed*H*_{0}: *p* > 0.092;
*H*_{1}: *p* = 0.092; right-tailed

(b) What sampling distribution will you use? Do you think the
sample size is sufficiently large?

The Student's *t*, since *np* > 5 and
*nq* > 5.The standard normal, since *np* > 5
and *nq* > 5. The standard normal,
since *np* < 5 and *nq* < 5.The Student's
*t*, since *np* < 5 and *nq* < 5.

What is the value of the sample test statistic? (Round your answer
to two decimal places.)

(c) Find the *P*-value of the test statistic. (Round your
answer to four decimal places.)

Sketch the sampling distribution and show the area corresponding to
the *P*-value.

(d) Based on your answers in parts (a) to (c), will you reject or
fail to reject the null hypothesis? Are the data statistically
significant at level *α*?

At the *α* = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis
and conclude the data are statistically significant.At the
*α* = 0.05 level, we reject the null hypothesis and conclude
the data are not statistically
significant. At the *α* = 0.05 level,
we fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are
statistically significant.At the *α* = 0.05 level, we fail
to reject the null hypothesis and conclude the data are not
statistically significant.

(e) State your conclusion in the context of the application.

There is sufficient evidence at the 0.05 level to conclude that the true proportion of students with hypertension during final exams week is higher than 0.092.There is insufficient evidence at the 0.05 level to conclude that the true proportion of students with hypertension during final exams week is higher than 0.092.

The following is based on information from The Wolf in the
Southwest: The Making of an Endangered Species, by David E.
Brown (University of Arizona Press). Before 1918, the proportion of
female wolves in the general population of all southwestern wolves
was about 50%. However, after 1918, southwestern cattle ranchers
began a widespread effort to destroy wolves. In a recent sample of
37 wolves, there were only 11 females. One theory is that male
wolves tend to return sooner than...

Women athletes at the a certain university have a long-term
graduation rate of 67%. Over the past several years, a random
sample of 37 women athletes at the school showed that 23 eventually
graduated. Does this indicate that the population proportion of
women athletes who graduate from the university is now less than
67%? Use a 5% level of significance.

Professor Jennings claims that only 35% of the students at Flora
College work while attending school. Dean Renata thinks that the
professor has underestimated the number of students with part-time
or full-time jobs. A random sample of 80 students shows that 37
have jobs. Do the data indicate that more than 35% of the students
have jobs? Use a 5% level of significance.

In a fishing lodge brochure, the lodge advertises that 75% of
its guests catch northern pike over 20 pounds. Suppose that last
summer 56 out of a random sample of 81 guests did, in fact, catch
northern pike weighing over 20 pounds. Does this indicate that the
population proportion of guests who catch pike over 20 pounds is
different from 75% (either higher or lower)? Use α =
0.05.

What is your favorite color? A large survey of countries,
including the United States, China, Russia, France, Turkey, Kenya,
and others, indicated that most people prefer the color blue. In
fact, about 24% of the population claim blue as their favorite
color.† Suppose a random sample of n = 59 college students
were surveyed and r = 13 of them said that blue is their
favorite color. Does this information imply that the color
preference of all college students is...
