Question

Suppose that the mean price of a home in Denver, Colorado in
2008 was 225.3 thousand dollars. A random sample of 49 homes sold
in 2010 had a mean price of 198.7 thousand dollars. A real estate
firm wants to test to see if the mean price in 2010 differs from
the from mean price in 2008. Assume that the population standard
deviation is 140. Perform the hypothesis test and compute the
P-value.

Write down your P-value. You will need it for the next
question.

Round your answer to four decimal places (for example:
0.2305). Write only a number as your answer.

Recall the previous question where the real estate firm wants
to see if the mean price of homes in 2010 have differed from the
mean price in 2008. Based on your P-value, what is the conclusion
if we test at the 0.05 level of significance?

Question 15 options:

There is evidence to conclude that the mean price of homes in
2010 differ from the mean price in 2008.

This is not enough evidence to conclude that the mean price of
homes in 2010 differ from the mean price in 2008.

There is evidence to conclude that the mean price of homes in
2010 do not differ from the mean price in 2008.

There is not enough evidence to conclude that the mean price
of homes in 2010 do not differ from the mean price in 2008.

A random sample of 64 second-graders in a certain school
district are given a standardized mathematics skills test. The
sample mean score is 51.12 . Assume the standard deviation for the
population of test scores is 15. The nationwide average score on
this test is 50. The school superintendent wants to know whether
the second-graders in her school district have greater math skills
than the nationwide average. Perform the hypothesis test and
compute the P-value.

part 2

Recall the previous question where the school superintendent
wanted to know whether second-graders in her school district have
greater math skills than the nationwide average. Based on your
P-value, what is the conclusion if we test at the 0.05 level of
significance?

options:

There is evidence to conclude that the second-graders in her
district do not have greater math skills.

There is evidence to conclude that the second-graders in her
district have greater math skills.

This is not enough evidence to conclude that the
second-graders in her district have greater math skills.

There is not enough evidence to conclude that the
second-graders in her district do not have greater math
skills.

Answer #1

14. As the population standard deviation is known, we will perform a one-sample z-test:

Ho: mu = 225.3

Ha: mu =/ 225.3

n = 49

x = 198.7

mu = 225.3

σ = 140

z = (198.7 - 225.3)/(140/√49) = -1.33

p-value associated with the z-value is 0.1835

15. As the p-value = 0.1835 > 0.05, we fail to reject the null hypothesis.

Our conclusion is: There is not enough evidence to conclude that
the mean price of homes in 2010 differ from the mean price in
2008.

Option B) is correct

16. Ho: mu = 50

Ha: mu > 50

This is a one-tailed test.

x = 51.12

mu = 50

σ = 15

n = 64

z = (51.12 - 50)/(15/8) = 0.597

16. From the z-table, p-value = 0.2753

We fail to reject the null hypothesis.

We conclude that This is not enough evidence to conclude that the second-graders in her district have greater math skills. Option C) is correct

A study showed that in a certain month, the mean time spent per
visit to Facebook was 19.5 minutes. Assumes the standard deviation
of the population is 8 minutes. Suppose that a simple random sample
of 100 visits in that month has a sample mean of 21.35 minutes. A
social scientist is interested in knowing whether the mean time of
Facebook visits has increased. Perform the hypothesis test and
compute the P-value.

4. A used car dealer says that the mean price of a 2008 Honda
CR-V is less than $20,500. You suspect this claim
is incorrect and find that a random sample of 14 similar vehicles
has a sample mean price of $19,850 and a sample standard deviation
of $1084. Use a 0.05 significance level to test the claim that the
mean price is less than $20,500.
