Question

According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, 19% of American adults receive their news in a partisan bubble (that is, Democrats from left-leaning news sources and Republicans from right-leaning news sources).

Suppose you select 42 Coker University students conduct a survey to determine whether they receive their news from partisan sources.

a. Identify n for the binomial experiment:

b. Identify p for the binomial experiment:

c. Find the expected value ?=?? of the binomial experiment. Do not round your answer.

d. Find the probability that 3 or fewer of the 42 students receive their news from a partisan source. Round your answer to 4 decimal places.

e. Suppose after completing the study, and finding that only 3 out of 42 students get their news from a partisan source, Coker University wants to advertise that their student body is better informed and more open to diversity of opinion than the national average. Are they justified in making this claim?

According to a Pew Research Center study, in May 2011, 42% of
all American adults had a smart phone (one which the user can use
to read email and surf the Internet). A communications professor at
a university believes this percentage is higher among community
college students. She selects 420 community college students at
random and finds that 188 of them have a smart phone. Then in
testing the hypotheses:
H0: p = 0.42 versus
Ha: p > 0.42,

According to a Pew Research Center nationwide telephone survey
of American adults conducted by phone between March 15 and April
24, 2011, 75% of adults said that college education has become too
expensive for most people and they cannot afford it (Time, May 30,
2011). Suppose that this result is true for the 2011 population of
American adults. In a recent poll of 1575 American adults, 1150
said that college education has become too expensive for most
people and they...

to read email and surf the Internet). A communications professor at
a university believes this percentage is higher among community

of adults conducted between March 15 and April 24, 2011, 55% of
college graduates said that college education prepared them for a
job (Time, May 30, 2011). Suppose this result was true of
all college graduates at that time. In a recent sample of 1850
college graduates, 60% said that college education prepared them
for a job. Is there significant evidence at a 2% significance level
to conclude that the current...
