Question 3

A college professor claims the proportion of students that complete a homework assignment is 70%. To test this claim, a random sample of students are monitored and checked if they completed the home the algebra class.

Assume that the test statistic for this hypothesis test is −1.73.

Since this is a two tailed hypothesis test, assume that the critical values for this hypothesis test are −1.96 and 1.96.

Come to a decision for the hypothesis test and interpret your results with respect to the original claim.

Select the correct answer below:

Reject the null hypothesis.

There is enough evidence to reject the claim that the proportion of
students that complete a homework assignment is 70%.

Fail to reject the null hypothesis.

There is not enough evidence to reject the claim that the
proportion of students that complete a homework assignment is
70%.

Answer #1

Null hypothesis ,

_{Ho}: the proportion of students
that complete a homework assignment =p=70%=0.70

Alternative hypothesis;

H_{1}: p0.70

we see that the alternative hypothesis is two tailed or both tailed ,so we will use modulus of critical value and it is equal to 1.96

Now,

since the calculated test statistic (=-1.73) which is less than the tabulated z-value (1.96)at 5% level of significance..so,we will not reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis..

thus ,the second option is correct.

A college instructor claims that the proportion of students who
will fail the final exam is less than 10%.
To test this claim, a random sample of student results on the final
exam is monitored.
Assume that the test statistic for this hypothesis test is
−2.13.
Assume the critical value for this hypothesis test is
−1.645.
Come to a decision for the hypothesis test and interpret
your results with respect to the original claim.

The college board claims that 32% of community college students
take five semesters to complete a two-year program. In a survey of
1400 randomly selected community college students enrolled in a
two-year program, 401 of them took five semesters to complete their
two-year program. Test the college board's claim at a level of
significance of 0.01.
Calculate the test statistics associated with this
hypothesis.

A card company claims that 80% of all American college students
send a card to their mother on Mother’s Day. Suppose you plan to
gather your own data to test this claim, wondering if your sample
proportion will differ in either direction from the proportion
claimed by the card company. You select a random sample of 53
American college students and find that 37 of them send a card to
their mother on Mother’s Day. Do you have enough evidence...
