Question

A class survey in a large class for first-year college students asked, "About how many minutes do you study on a typical weeknight?" The mean response of the 272 students was x¯¯¯x¯ = 148 minutes. Suppose that we know that the studey time follows a Normal distribution with standard deviation σσ = 65 minutes in the population of all first-year students at this university. Regard these students as an SRS from the population of all first-year students at this university. Does the study give good evidence that students claim to study more than 2 hours per night on the average?

(a) State null and alternative hypotheses in terms of the mean
study time in minutes for the population.

(b) What is the value of the test statistic zz?

(c) Can you conclude that students do claim to study more than two
hours per weeknight on the average?

(a) H0H0: HaHa: (Type in "mu" as the
substitute for μμ and "!=" for ≠≠.)

(b) zz:

(c) Conclusion: (Answer with "Yes/Y" or "No/N".)

Answer #1

This is the right tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is

H_{0} :
= 120

H_{a} :
> 120

Test statistic = z

= ( - ) / / n

= (148 - 120) / 65 / 272

Test statistic = 7.10

P-value = 0.000

P-value <

Reject the null hypothesis .

**Yes**

In a survey of a SRS of 463 first-year college students the
students were asked about studying habits. Among these students the
mean response of studying time was 15.3 hours. Suppose we know that
study time among similar students varies with standard deviation
8.5 hours. Does this study give statistically significant evidence
at the 0.05 significance level that students generally claim to
study more than 15 hours per week on average? For full
credit, perform a complete significance test (that is,...

Hypothesis testing: A student group claims that first-year
students at a university must study 2.25 hours per night during the
school week. A skeptic suspects that they study less than that on
average. A class survey finds the study time claimed by 259
students is 147 minutes. Regard these students as a random sample
of all 1st year students and suppose what study times follow a
Normal Distribution with a population standard deviation 62
minutes. Test to see if the...
