Question

A group of 41 college students from a certain liberal arts college were randomly sampled and asked about the number of alcoholic drinks they have in a typical week. The purpose of this study was to compare the drinking habits of the students at the college to the drinking habits of college students in general. In particular, the dean of students, who initiated this study, would like to check whether the mean number of alcoholic drinks that students at his college in a typical week differs from the mean of U.S. college students in general, which is estimated to be 4.73.

The group of 41 students in the study reported an average of 4.44 drinks per with a standard deviation of 3.55 drinks.

Find the p-value for the hypothesis test.

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

Thanks!

Answer #1

Solution :

Given that,

Population mean = = 4.73

Sample mean = = 4.44

Sample standard deviation = s = 3.55

Sample size = n = 41

This is a two tailed test.

The null and alternative hypothesis is,

Ho: 4.73

Ha: 4.73

The test statistics,

t = ( - )/ (s/)

= ( 4.73 - 4.44 ) / ( 3.55 / 41 )

= **-0.523**

**P-value = 0.6038**

According to the website www.collegedrinkingprevention.gov,
“About 25 percent of college students report academic consequences
of their drinking including missing class, falling behind, doing
poorly on exams or papers, and receiving lower grades overall.” A
statistics student is curious about drinking habits of students at
his college. He wants to estimate the mean number of alcoholic
drinks consumed each week by students at his college. He plans to
use a 90% confidence interval. He surveys a random sample of 62
students....

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

The Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS)
reported that the mean time for CLAS students to complete their
degree at CU-Denver is less than 5 years. She randomly selected a
sample of 25 recent CLAS graduates and found that their mean time
to graduate was 4.75 years with a sample standard deviation of 0.8
years. At an α = 0.1 level, is their sufficient evidence to
conclude that the mean time for CLAS students to complete...

A survey of a group of students at a certain college, we call
College ABC, asked: "About how many hours do you study in a week?"
The mean response of the 400 students is 15.8 hours. Suppose that
the study time distribution of the population is known to be normal
with a standard deviation of 8.5 hours. Use the survey results to
construct a 95% confidence interval for the mean study time at the
College ABC. Show your work neatly.
