A poll found that 74% of Americans favor mandatory testing in public schools as a way to rate the school. A local school board conducted a random survey to determine if a smaller proportion of residents in their district supported the use of mandatory testing. They found that 68% of the residents were in favor.

The sample data was used to test the hypotheses: Ho: p=0.74; Ha: p<0.74. The P-value is 0.32.

Which conclusion is supported by this P-value?

Group of answer choices

The sample evidence is not unusual when sampling from a population with p = 0.74, and the data is not statistically significant.

The sample evidence is not unusual when sampling from a population with p = 0.74, and the data is statistically significant.

Answer #1

**The sample
evidence is not unusual when sampling from a population with p =
0.74, and the data is not statistically
significant.**

[ *explanation*:-

p value = 0.32

decision:-

p value = 0.32 > 0.05 (alpha) [ *here, no level of
significance is mentioned,so i am using alpha=0.05, but if you use
alpha=0.10 or 0.01, you will reach to the same decision* ]

so, we * fail to
reject the null hypothesis* and conclude that the
result is not statistically significant.]

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

A news poll found that 23% of college students were tattooed. At
a small college in the midwest the administration randomly surveyed
their students and discovered that only 15% were tattooed. They
conducted a hypothesis test against a 5% level of significance.
Their P-value was 0.02.
Which of the following can they conclude?

The difference between 0.23 and 0.15 is not statistically
significant.
The difference between 0.23 and 0.15 cannot be explained by
expected sampling...

A Gallup Poll found that Americans, when asked about a list of
environmental problems, were increasingly worried about problems
such as pollution of drinking water, soil, air, and waterways, but
were least worried about climate change or global warming. Gallup's
report said, "Results are based on telephone interviews conducted
March 6-9, 2014, with a random sample of 1,048 adults, aged 18 and
older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia."

The Wind Mountain archaeological site is in southwest New
Mexico. Prehistoric Native Americans called Anasazi once lived and
hunted small game in this region. A stemmed projectile point is an
arrowhead that has a notch on each side of the base. Both stemmed
and stemless projectile points were found at the Wind Mountain
site. A random sample of n1 = 55 stemmed projectile points showed
the mean length to be x1 = 3.00 cm, with sample standard deviation

6.36 Diabetes and unemployment: A 2012 Gallup
poll surveyed Americans about their employment status and whether
or not they have diabetes. The survey results indicate that 1.5% of
the 47,774 employed (full or part time) and 2.5% of the 5,855
unemployed 18-29 year olds have diabetes.
(a) Create a two-way table presenting the results of this
study.

No Diabetes
Employed
Unemployed
(b) State appropriate hypotheses to test for independence of
incidence of diabetes and employment status.

12% of all Americans suffer from sleep apnea. A researcher
suspects that a higher percentage of those who live in the inner
city have sleep apnea. Of the 600 people from the inner city
surveyed, 81 of them suffered from sleep apnea. What can be
concluded at the 0.05 level of significance?
H0: p = 0.12
Ha: p [">", "Not Equal
To", "<"] 0.12
p-Value = ["0.12", "0.13", "0.125", "0.135"]

recently conducted Gallup poll surveyed 1,485 randomly selected
US adults and found that 48% of those polled approve of the job the
Supreme Court is doing. The Gallup poll's margin of error for 95%
confidence was given as ±5%. Students at the College of Idaho are
interested in determining if the percentage of Yotes that approve
of the job the Supreme Court is doing is different from 48%. They
take a random sample of 30C of I students.

A study is made of residents in Phoenix and its suburbs
concerning the proportion of residents who subscribe to Sporting
News. A random sample of n1 = 90 urban residents showed that r1 =
10 subscribed, and a random sample of n2 = 99 suburban residents
showed that r2 = 18 subscribed. Does this indicate that a higher
proportion of suburban residents subscribe to Sporting News? Use a
5% level of significance. What are we testing in this problem?

Symposium is part of a larger work referred to as Plato's
Dialogues. Wishart and Leach† found that about 21.4% of
five-syllable sequences in Symposium are of the type in which four
are short and one is long. Suppose an antiquities store in Athens
has a very old manuscript that the owner claims is part of Plato's
Dialogues. A random sample of 481 five-syllable sequences from this
manuscript showed that 125 were of the type four short and one
long. Do...
