The National Science Foundation, in a survey of 2,237
engineering graduate students who earned their PhD degrees, found
that 607 were U.S. citizens; the majority (1,630) of the PhD
degrees were awarded to foreign nationals. Conduct a test to
determine whether the true proportion of engineering PhD degrees
awarded to foreign nationals exceeds .5. Use α = .01.
Please follow these steps:
1. State the null and alternate hypothesis.
2. significance level used.
3. Test statistic.
4. p-value.

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 76 students shows that 36
have jobs. Do the data indicate that more than 35% of the students
have jobs? Use a 5% level of significance.

An SAT prep course claims to improve the test score of students.
The table below shows the scores for seven students the first two
times they took the verbal SAT. Before taking the SAT for the
second time, each student took a course to try to improve his or
her verbal SAT scores. Do these results support the claim that the
SAT prep course improves the students' verbal SAT scores? Let
d=(verbal SAT scores prior to taking the prep course)−(verbal...

College work while attending school. Dean Renata thinks that the
professor has underestimated the number of students with part-time

have jobs. Do the data indicate that more than 35% of the students
have jobs? Use a 5% level of significance.

6. Tinder is a dating app that allows users to meet potential
romantic partners based on geographical proximity. To use Tinder,
an individual merely swipes to the right to “like” a potential

Recently, research suggested that eating eggs is again
considered potentially bad for your heart health. You are part of a
team that did a healthy diet information talk to 50 students
randomly chosen at the University of Arizona. After a year, you
surveyed the same 50 people to find out if the average number of
eggs eaten was significantly less than the US average of 1.7 per
week. The sample mean was 1.5 eggs/week and sample standard
deviation was 0.3...

From public records, individuals were identified as having been
charged with drunken driving not less than 6 months or more than 12
months from the starting date of the study. Two random samples from
this group were studied. In the first sample of 30 individuals, the
respondents were asked in a face-to-face interview if they had been
charged with drunken driving in the last 12 months. Of these 30
people interviewed face to face, 16 answered the question
accurately. The...

Women athletes at the a certain university have a long-term

sample of 36 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 10% level of significance.
(a) What is the level of significance?
State the null and alternate hypotheses.
H0: p = 0.67; H1: p ≠...

A developmental psychologist conducted a study to find out if
children who suffered abuse were more likely to interpret neutral
