Question

An extensive survey in 1970 revealed preschool children spend an average of 6.3 hours per day watching television. The distribution of TV times in normal with a population standard deviation of 2 hours. Last year a sample of 100 preschool children had a mean of 5.8 hours of TV watching per day. Test to determine if the average time preschool children spend watching TV per day has decreased at the 0.01 significance level.

Part A -

Part B -

Part C - State alpha

Part D - Reject null if (*Answer f
should be the inequality symbol, and Answer g should be the
value.)*

Part E - The test statistic is .

Part F - Write the decision *Either Reject the
null or Accept the null*

Part G - At = , there is evidence to

Answer #1

*given data are:-*

sample mean () = 5.8

population sd() = 2

sample size (n) = 100

a).**hypothesis**:-

(claim)

b).here, we will do **1 sample Z test for
mean.**

[ as the population sd is known ]

c).**the level of significance ()
= 0.01**

d). **reject the
null hypothesis if,**

[ z critical value for alpha=0.01, left tailed test is = -2.807 ]

e).**the test
statistic is :-**

f).**decision**:-

**reject the null hypothesis.**

[

g). **at 0.01 , there is sufficient evidence to claim
that the average time preschool children spend watching TV per day
has decreased.**

***in case of doubt, comment below. And if u liked the solution,
please **like.**

4. A sociologist cites a study showing that, in a particular
parish, the amount of time preschool children ages 3–5 spend
watching TV is 22.6 hours per week, with a standard deviation of
6.1 hours.
A second researcher doubts these findings, believing that the
actual figure is higher. To attempt to resolve the question, a
simple random sample of 60 preschool children is chosen, and their
TV watching habits are measured by having their parents keep a
daily log of...

According to a certain survey, adults spend 2.25 hours per day
watching television on a weekday. Assume that the standard
deviation for "time spent watching television on a weekday" is
1.93 hours. If a random sample of 50 adults is obtained, describe
the sampling distribution of x overbarx, the mean amount of time
spent watching television on a weekday. x overbarx is approximately
normal with mu Subscript x overbarμxequals=2.25 and sigma Subscript
x overbarσxequals=0.272943

In a recent survey, it was stated that Americans watch
television on average four hours per day. Assume that σ =
2. Using your friend from Becker as the sample, conduct a
hypothesis test to determine if the average for students at your
school is lower.

A manufacturer of television picture tubes has a production line
that used to produce an average of 100 tubes per day. Because of
new government a regulation, a new safety device is installed,
which the manufacturer believes will reduce average daily output.
After installation of the safety device, a random sample of 15
days’ production was recorded, as follows:
93, 103, 98, 101, 93, 107, 96, 94, 101, 88, 98, 94, 101, 92,
